Spooky Halloween Bark Recipe

This fun and spooky Halloween bark recipe is the perfect after school treat, Halloween party food, or movie night snack to make with your kids!

Halloween bark is easy to bake for beginners, however you will need to be extra careful when melting the chocolate (if you have young kids helping out).

The most fun part of the recipe is definitely adding the sprinkles, and getting to break the frozen bark into bite size spooky pieces at the end.

This fun treat is also a great way to use up leftover halloween candy! Simply break up your leftover halloween treats to add as toppings for the halloween bark, instead of using sprinkles.

Equipment needed to make Easy Halloween Bark

Ingredients to make Halloween Bark

  • 10 ounces Orange Candy Melts (melted chocolate)
  • 2 ounces Black Candy Melts
  • Large Candy Eyeballs
  • Small Candy Balls
  • Halloween Sprinkles of choice

How to Make a Spooky Halloween Candy Bark Recipe

Step 1: Melt black candy melts according to package instructions. Add to a piping bag or zip lock bag

Step 2: Melt orange candy melts and 1 tsp of paramount crystals or coconut oil to a bowl. Melt according to package instructions (either in microwave, or using a double boiler)

Step 3: Once smooth, pour out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Smooth out to 1/8″ thickness

Step 4: Snip the tip of your piping bag (or ziplock bag). Starting in the center make a dot. Without releasing pressure create a circle around the dot but continue to go around and around until you run out of space.

Step 5: Using a toothpick or skewer, start at the center dot and drag the tip away from the center. Move over just a little and drag the tip towards the cent dot. Complete this pattern all the way around the bark.

Step 6: Add large eyes first, then the smaller eyes, and fill in the rest with Halloween Sprinkles.

Step 7: Chill in the fridge for 15-20 mins.

Step 8: Break apart and enjoy!

Baking Tips and Tricks

Do not overheat your candy melts. This will make them seize up and become unusable.

To avoid this, melt in short bursts, 10-15 second increments, stirring in between each burst until completely melted.

Use a double boiler which is a glass bowl on top of a boiling pan of water which slowly melts the chocolate if you can!

If your candy melts do seize up, you can try adding a little bit of oil (1 tsp at a time) to the mixture and stirring.
