Candy chocolate bark is like having the ultimate candy bar. You get tasty candy bars that you love mixed with a smooth chocolate base. You really can't make candy bars better than this (except for maybe Candy Bar Brownies).

Step 1: Supplies

What you need will depend on what you like! Use your favorite candy bars and chocolates. I'm going to list how much I used of each to give you an idea of amounts. Buy what you need or use leftover Halloween candy!


  • about 12oz of Chocolate - I used semi-sweet, but use what you like best
  • 1/2 block White Chocolate - I used this mostly for decoration. I melted 1 whole block but only used about half
  • Candy!
    • 3 mini Snickers (this is smaller than "Fun Size" I actually didn't realize they were this small when I bought them, but it still worked out just fine)
    • 3 mini Milky Way
    • 3 mini 3 Musketeers
    • 3 mini Twix
    • Half a Kit Kat Bar
    • Half a Butterfingers
    • Half a Cookies and Cream Hershey Bar (I wanted to lighten up the chocolate bark a bit)
    • Full tube of mini M&Ms;
  • Optional: Orange Gel Coloring for the white chocolate, if you want your bark to be even more Halloween-themed


  • Supplies to melt chocolate - I used just a glass measuring cup
  • Sharpe knife and cutting board
  • Wax Paper or Baking Mat
  • Cookie Sheet - to put everything on so you can move the chocolate bark around if you need to

Other Suggested Candies

  • Sixlets - good for added color
  • Reese's Pieces - good for Halloween colors
  • 100 Grand Bars
  • Almond Joy
  • Baby Ruth
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
  • Rolos

To get started, just cut up your candy (if you use full-size M&Ms; and you want them smaller, put them in a zip lock and smash them up a bit).

All of my candy cut well except the Butterfingers which really liked to crumble. But, I liked how it added some messiness to the chocolate bark and since it was orange, it went more with the Halloween-theme.

Step 2: Create Your Bark

Time to get everything layered.

Layer 1: Melted semi-sweet chocolate; spread this out so it is as thick or thin as you want it.

Layer 2: Chopped up candy; spread it out and make sure you push it down into the chocolate so it stays, it's okay if you push through, it should still look fine.

Layer 3: Sprinkle mini M&Ms; again, tap them down a little. Since they are smaller, they might get swallowed up if you push them into the melted chocolate too much. I didn't tap mine down well and they all wanted to pop off when it was hard.

Layer 4: Drizzle your white chocolate (possibly died orange) over the top of your bark.

Let it harden. I throw mine in the fridge for a while to harden it, but you should be able to leave it out. It will take a while at room temp to get hard.

Step 3: Break/Cut and Enjoy

Once it is hard, you can break it (or cut it) into the size pieces you want and enjoy.
