If you have 5 minutes, you can make this easy Halloween Bark! You only need chocolate and some fun toppings. A Halloween treat that’s so easy to make and can be for kids or adults, depending on the toppings!
What You’ll Need to Make Halloween Bark
- Chocolate – The better the quality, the better the bark. But consider your audience. If you are making this for a class of 25 first graders that may or may not touch it, I wouldn’t use expensive chocolate. However, if this is a little after-dinner treat served to a few friends, then yes, buy the good chocolate.
- Toppings – Again, consider the audience. For children, fun Halloween-themed sprinkles, candy corn, pretzels, and oreo cookie crumbled are all good options. Maybe a few orange sprinkles, a few candy corn, and a little sea salt are perfect for grown-ups.
What Kind of Chocolate?
I trust Lindt Chocolate, and I think the quality is excellent for the price. I buy it at Walmart for about $3 for a 4-ounce bar. You can use milk, dark or white chocolate, or even a combination.
I also love Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers.
Let’s Talk More About Those Toppings for Halloween Bark
Candy Corn – I love the addition of a few candy corn for kids and adults. I mean, candy corn is so perfectly Halloween. You can make it in Christmas colors and call it candy corn, but everyone knows the original candy corn is orange, yellow, and white!
Brach’s Classic Candy Corn is what I always look for. Candy corn offers a little chewiness to bark that’s sort of unexpected.
Pretzels – Cut them into small pieces or use Gold Fish pretzels. They offer a little salty with the sweet.
Maldon Sea Salt Flakes – Just a sprinkle, but such a nice contrast with the sweet chocolate and candy corn.
If you have 5 minutes (and about 4 hours), you can make this sweet Halloween treat!

You don’t want to make it, but you like the idea of Halloween bark…
Williams Sonoma sells Halloween Bark! I doubt it’s as popular as their Original Peppermint Bark, but maybe it will catch on! I love these black pumpkins too! They would look beautiful with these and take you right through Thanksgiving!
