Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Not a year goes by that I’m not perusing the aisles of Target the week their Halloween decor hit the shelves. Of course, I always have to see what my friend, Cathy, comes up for her Halloween decorations as well. Cathy always decorates the outside of her home with the most amazing, upcycled Halloween decorations. Every year is different. She scavenges for all sorts of interesting materials and recreates them into truly spooky, Halloween decor. Her lawn is always littered with an exciting assortment of zombie baby dolls and giant, blood sucking tentacles, as well as skeletons and other scary holiday decor.

Cathy’s Halloween parties are as equally amazing as the decorations she crafts for her home. (And I do love a good Halloween party!) Without fail, the inside of her home is as frighteningly delightful as the outside. In addition to making her own indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations, she makes makes and bakes all sorts of wonderful Halloween treats and appetizers for her guests. Meat and cheese trays that look like skeletons splayed open on the table, bread that resembles witches fingers, and the like. And of course the Halloween desserts are equally as fun. While I’m not big on sweets or candy, I do indulge at holiday parties with much exuberance and zero concern for my waistline.

I’m a decent cook, however my presentation is often rough. I’m not the best at making things look pretty when it comes to cooking or baking, regardless of how things taste. However, this year, I really wanted to make a fun Halloween treat that reminds me of my friend’s Halloween decor. A mishmash of elements that pull together into a creepy, yet effortless, Halloween treat. So I settled on making Halloween bark!

This Halloween bark is so easy to make. It’s also quite possibly the best Halloween treat to bring a Halloween party. Both kids and adults absolutely love this chocolate candy bark. And, of course, you’ll love how easy it is to make.

My Halloween bark recipe really is a snap to make. It’s also basically impossible to mess it up, as there’s no absolute right or wrong way to decorate these Halloween treats.

This recipe for Halloween bark can be made ahead of time. You can store the Halloween chocolate bark in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, inside an airtight container.
