Looking for something fun to do with all that leftover Halloween candy? Try this!
Halloween is my son’s most favorite holiday. Even though he is only 4-years-old, he tricks or teats like a manic. He also doesn’t tire easy and we usually spend awhile out. And, we always end up with a ton of leftover Halloween candy that sticks around for what feels like ever.
If you are like me and ration out your kids Halloween candy so your they are not on a sugar high until Christmas, consider throwing all that Leftover Halloween Candy into bark! I swear, this will be your new best friend! It’s a great way to get rid of all that candy in one swift move while creating a super fun dessert that your kids will love and can even help you make.
This recipe is super simple and has only three ingredients! The best part about this Leftover Halloween Bark is that you can just use it as a guide and just mix and match whatever leftovers happen to be kicking around the week after Halloween. I used a lot of the chocolate candy and just threw on some eyes (to make it cute) that I had from a previous recipe. You can even mix salty and sweet by throwing in some pretzels or peanuts.
Whatever you do, just make sure you use semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate as a base to keep it from getting too sweet. All in all, this recipe is going to be a win with everyone! You get to get rid of that pile of candy on your table that has been picked through, while making a super sweet treat everyone is going to love!
Leftover Halloween Bark
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Chop the candies and keep in a bowl.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Start by heating the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl or glass measuring cup for 30 seconds and then in increments of 15 seconds till melted. Stir and scrape as required.
Spread the melted chocolate on the parchment lined cookie sheet using a rubber spatula.
Arrange the chopped chocolates on the melted chocolate layer while it is still warm and gooey and throw in the M&Ms randomly.
Refrigerate for 45 minutes to about an hour till the chocolate hardens. Cut or break into desired shape/size. Store leftovers in an airtight container. Enjoy!
