Cooking with U: Crazy Halloween Bark


Do you have copious amounts of leftover Halloween candy that you do not know what to do with? Or are you eager to scoop up more candy from the after Halloween candy sales where stores practically give you the sweets for free?

If you answered yes to either of these questions then crazy Halloween bark may be the perfect afternoon activity for you! This bark is super easy to make and can be customized to fit your candy preferences.

As the name suggests, crazy Halloween bark does not require you to “color inside the lines” because you can throw as much or as little candy onto the melted chocolate as you want and the more disorganized the throwing, the better. This recipe is perfect for kids or for the kid in you!

  • 1 box chocolate graham crackers
  • 20 ounces of white chocolate
  • 1 cup pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup Oreos
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 cup gummy worms or gummy bears
  • 1 cup M&Ms
  • 1 cup chopped Health Bar
  • 2-3 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles


Melt the white chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan filled with simmering water (do not let the water boil). The chocolate can also be melted in the microwave but this should be done in 30-second intervals with stirring in between.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with the chocolate graham crackers so that the entire sheet is covered with not empty spaces. Pour the melted white chocolate over the graham crackers and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Throw on any or all of the candy and salty snacks listed over onto the chocolate. Roughly break up the Oreo cookies and half the pretzel sticks. Sprinkle over the top the candy corn, gummy worms and or bears, M&Ms, Health bar and rainbow sprinkles. Once all the ingredients are on the chocolate press them slightly so they stay in place. Refrigerate the bark for a couple of hours or overnight. Once completely solid, roughly break up the bark into variously sized pieces. Serve immediately or package into individual bags for snacking or gifts. Keep in the refrigerator between servings.

Share and enjoy!
