One of the easiest and fastest chocolate treats to make is chocolate barks. Chocolate barks can be made for any holiday! My favorite barks to make are for Valentine’s Day (White chocolate with Cinnamon Hearts), Halloween (Monster Bark) and Christmas (Candy Cane Bark).
Basically, Chocolate Bark is chocolate (white, dark, and/or milk) mixed with other ingredients (candy, nuts, dried fruit, etc) that is spread out thinly on a cookie sheet and then frozen to create a tasty treat for any occasion.
For my Halloween party this year, I decided to make Halloween Monster bark for my friends. I didn’t want to make it complicated so I only bought three types of candies and a bag of white chocolate melting wafers. I do suggest going onto Pinterest (Monster Bark) and looking at all the other kinds of barks people have made. A lot of them look like pieces of art! I even saw an adorable cookie monster one by House of Yum.
For this recipe you’ll only need a few things:
- Candy of choice
- Chocolate Melting Wafers of choice
- Food colouring
- Double Boiler/pot and glass bowl/ or microwave
- Cookie sheet lined with wax paper
- Baking Spatula
