1. Those who get sick of the same ol' candy
2. Those who want ALL OF THE CANDY ALL OF THE TIME.
This solves both of their problems. It's basically like making candy out of candy, and it is the perfect way to eat ALL OF THE CANDY ALL OF THE TIME.
Plus, the pretzel-bark bottom ensures a bit of salt to cut all that sweet.
The recipe is really more of a series of suggestions, since it can be adjusted for anything you have on hand--or anything you steal out of your child or younger sibling's treat bag (I won't tell). You can even share the result with them!
This is also a great way to use up any leftover Halloween treats after the holiday. And it looks pretty neat, too!
Monster Mash Halloween Bark
- About 50 pretzel thins
- 1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips
- 12 Halloween Oreos, broken into fourths
- 1/2 cup candy corn
- 1/4 cup Halloween M&Ms (extra points: pumpkin spice!)
- 1/4 cup Reese's Pieces
- 1/8 cup peanuts
- 1/8 cup Halloween sprinkles
-Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and arrange the pretzel thins in a single layer so that they're touching.
-In a double boiler over low heat or in a microwave at half power, melt the chocolate chips until smooth.
-Pour half of the melted chocolate chips over the pretzel thins and use a spatula to smooth the surface.
-Drop the rest of the ingredients, minus the sprinkles, and press them lightly into the surface.
-Drizzle the rest of the melted chocolate over the top, and sprinkle the sprinkles over the top.
-Let set in the fridge for at least an hour, then break into chunks. Store in a cool, dry place in an airtight container.
