In an effort to properly prepare for Halloween, I went out and purchased a maddening amount of candy. Here’s the thing, where I live I get maybe one trick or treater a year. So now I’m stuck with all this candy that I can’t possibly eat. In an effort to put the chocolatey treats to some good use, I decided to make a post-Halloween candy bark.
The great thing about making bark is people often think it takes a lot of effort to prepare it, when in reality it takes less than five to put it together. During the winter holidays I often churn out tins of peppermint bark like a deranged Keelber elf (I have a voracious and demanding collection of friends and family) but I thought it could be fun to expand my bark making horizons. If you’re also looking for something fun and easy to make with friends or even the kids (this recipe is very child friendly), try your hand at making this sweet and salty bark.
