My Halloween Pretzel Bark is on the top of my list for craveable goodies. It comes together quickly and is festive enough to share and package into gifts.
How to Make Candy Bark
Candy bark is one of my kids’ favorite sweet treats. I love that you can change it up to fit any holiday just by using different candies and sprinkles. Also known as crack bark because it’s so addicting, this Halloween Bark is easy enough for kids to help with too. No candy thermometer needed, no cooking, just melting and decorating. They love adding ingredients and sprinkling them on the bark. You can add pretty much anything to it (including leftover candy), so get creative!
Halloween Pretzel Bark
Fair warning: My family pretty much went crazy for this Halloween Pretzel Bark. We had to ration it out, so you may want to double the batch so there’s some left for you. It had such an amazing balance of salty and sweet with the pretzels and candy. Plus that peanut buttery goodness that can only come from Reese’s pieces. Talk about seriously munchable! It’s a perfect treat to give as a gift, or bring to a party or potluck- if you don’t eat it first.
- 1/2 bag of pretzel twists
- 16 oz white chocolate (or almond candy bark)
- 2 cups candy corns
- 1-2 cups Reese's Pieces
- Halloween sprinkles
- other Halloween colored candies, optional
- Line a small baking pan or a 9x13 casserole pan with parchment paper.
- Roughly break apart twist pretzels and place in a single layer in pan. Add half of the candy corn to the pretzels and spread evenly.
- Place white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals (stirring in between) until melted and smooth. Gently pour over pretzels evenly and spread to cover pretzels.
- Immediately sprinkle with Reese's Pieces, candy corn, and sprinkles.
- Place pan in the freezer for 30 minutes to set up (or leave overnight like I did because I forgot). Pull the bark out of the pan using the parchment paper as a sling. Cut into large chunks for serving.
- (Make a large batch at the beginning of the holiday season and then store in a zip-top baggie in the freezer. Pull out what's needed for each holiday event and store the rest in the freezer.)
