I’m always looking for something that’s a quick and easy treat to put together for a holiday. This Halloween Boo-Bark is the perfect project to do with your kids or grandkids. All it takes is milk chocolate or white chocolate almond bark and any variety of candies or salty additions you want to use. You can make it more Halloween-themed by using candy eyeballs, fall-themed nonpareils and sprinkles, and Halloween standards like candy corn or Reeses pieces. In our house, I make it with gluten-free pretzels to ensure it’s safe for some of my family members with gluten allergies. Go crazy, go wild, and be creative with your candy-making!


2 packages of chocolate almond bark or white chocolate candy bark
Selection of candies or salty treats to add to the top, such as:
Mini pretzels
Salted peanuts
Candy Corn
Reeses Pieces
Candy Eyeballs
Fall colored sprinkles
Mini oreo cookies or crushed cookie crumbles


Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. This is important or your candy will stick to the bottom of the pan and you’ll have a hard time getting it out in nice, uniform pieces.

Melt the chocolate bark in a glass mixing bowl. Microwave on high heat for about 30-45 seconds. Remove and stir. Continue microwaving in 15-second increments, stirring between each increment, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Pour melted bark into the jelly roll pan, smoothing to the edges to create an even layer of chocolate. Add your candies and salted treats to the top. Press down lightly on some of the larger items such as pretzels and candy corn to make sure they are able to adhere to the chocolate.

Allow the chocolate to completely set up in a cool place, at least overnight. Break up into smaller pieces and serve!

I like to place another sheet of parchment paper over the top of the boo-bark as I’m breaking it up to keep my hands clean and to keep the heat of my hands from smudging or melting the chocolate.
