This Halloween chocolate bark is a sweet savory combination of dark chocolate swirled into milk chocolate, green candy melts, chocolate covered bugles, cookie witch hats, candy eyeballs and chocolate almond pretzel witch brooms. This is a really easy to make and delicious melting witches chocolate bark that makes a fun and tasty Halloween treat!
Melt the milk chocolate candy melts on ½ power in 30 second intervals. Keep checking, removing and stirring.
Dip each bugle in the melted chocolate candy melts and gently shake off excess.
Immediately place bugles onto cookies and allow to harden.
Once hardened, make a snake out of fondant and fit around the rim of each cookie hat, trimming to fit.
Reheat the remaining milk chocolate candy melts if necessary. Dip one end of each pretzel stick into milk chocolate and lay on parchment paper. Add 4 almond slivers to each pretzel. Then spoon a little chocolate over the top of the almond sliver and let harden.
Once hardened, trim the edges of the brooms.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Melt melting chocolate (or milk chocolate chips) at 50% (½ power) in microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring between, until melted. Pour onto prepare pan (lined with parchment paper).
Melt semi sweet chocolate in microwave the same as above. Drop by spoonfuls onto melted milk chocolate then swirl with knife to get desired effect.
Melt green candy melts in microwave same as chocolate, then drop by spoonfuls (to make puddles) Take a knife and only swirl at some of the edges to get the desired effect.
Place cookie witch hats evenly (you can make more and add more if you like). Then place the brooms evenly throughout (you can also make additional brooms). Add the eyeball candies evenly throughout.
Bang bottom of cookie sheet down on counter 3-4 times to remove air bubbles.
Set aside and allow to harden for 1-2 hours. Cut and serve
💭 Top tipChocolate bark is such an easy Halloween treat to make because you don't need to bake it or even use your stove- you can use your microwave (just be sure to use ½ power (50%) and keep an eye on it). If you cook it too long, it will seize (becoming crumbly and hard). And like the Wicked Witch of the West, water is BAD for chocolate and candy melts! If they come into contact with water, they will seize. Make sure your bowls and utensils are dry!🌡️StoringHow to Store Chocolate BarkYou can store this at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, once the chocolate is set completely and broke into pieces. It's best to store it in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, such as your pantry (ideally less than 70ºF). I prefer to keep it in the freezer (it will keep there for up to 2 months), if I'm hanging onto it any longer than a few days, although it usually doesn't last that long!My Amazon Recommendations (affiliate links)
