Halloween Candy Bark

Halloween Candy B...

 You know what the problem with Bulk stores is??? They have so many awesome things and when you scoop them into those plastic bags, you just don't know how much you are putting in there. I always try to get just enough for what ever recipe I'm planning on making, but it never works. I'm always left with bags of candies, sprinkles, nuts and chocolate melts. That's exactly what I found in my cupboard the other day. I huge Bulk Barn bag, full of chocolates and Halloween candies. So, I decided to use them all (well most of them) and make some Halloween Bark.

Halloween Candy Bark- Hun... What's for Dinner?

 I even decided to take a gamble and try to colour my melted white chocolate! (Yup, I was a gambling woman that day) Thankfully the chocolate didn't seize, but the colour did not come out as I had envisioned it. Regardless, I think it looked great and I went ahead and made the bark. Swirled milk and white chocolates are topped with Reese's Pieces, Smarties, Candy Corn and Gummy Worms. Frightfully delicious, the kids are just devouring this. This would be a great special treat to give you the little trick or treaters in your family, or even as a school Halloween party treat!

1 1/2 C milk chocolate melts
1 1/2 C white chocolate melts
Kelly Green Wilton Gel colouring
candy corn
Reese's Pieces
black Smarties or M&Ms
gummy worms

Place chocolate melts in seperate bowls. Heat each bowl,  in microwave, for 90 seconds; stirring every 30 secconds, until melted. Tint melted white chocolate with green Gel colouring; to desired shade. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slowly pour melted milk chocolate onto parchment paper, trying to spread it out, evenly. Slowly pour melted white chocolate over milk chocolate, spreading it out as well. Using a butter knife, swirl the chocolates together, to produce a marbled effect. Sprinkle with candies and gently press into chocolate. Place in freezer to set, about 30-45 minutes. To break, grab both ends of the parchment paper, and drop it onto your kitchen counter. The chocolate should break into pieces.
