Tips for the Perfect Halloween Chocolate Bark
- No matter the type of chocolate make sure it’s top quality!
- Have all your ingredients out and ready to go. Once the chocolate is melted things move fast!
- Less is more! If you overdo it with too many different types of candy in your chocolate you may not be able to actually taste any flavours but just a sugary mess. Also, it makes it a little difficult for everything to stick together in the chocolate when you have too much going on.
- If you want to add lots of different types of candy to your chocolate bark try dividing your chocolate into sections and make different batches of bark.
How to Make Spooky Halloween Bark
Step One: Melt chocolate in a heat safe bowl or a double boiler. Pour melted chocolate onto a prepared baking sheet.
Step Two: Using an offset spatula spread out chocolate in an even layer. Working quickly add an assortment of candy all over the chocolate (before chocolate hardens).
Step Three: Place the baking sheet in the refridgerator for 30 minutes or until the bark has completely hardened. Break chocolate bark into smaller pieces.

Yes, you can freeze chocolate bark for up to two months. Freezing chocolate bark is a great way to extend its shelf life. Place chocolate bark into freezer safe bags and then into an airtight container.
The best brands of chocolate are ones of high quality and that you enjoy on their own. My favourite chocolate to use is Lindt chocolate or Ghirardelli chocolate.
Tempering chocolate is not necessary when making chocolate bark. Chocolate bark is forgiving and straightforward to prepare. The main purpose of tempering is to achieve a glossy finish and a good snap in more delicate chocolate confections like truffles or chocolate-covered strawberries.
