Halloween Candy Bark

I don't know about you, but my kids got a ton of candy on Halloween. Way more than they ever need! I'm sure everyone is searching for ways to use up some of that stash and this is a perfect way to do so. All I have to say is whoever created this candy is genius! Such an easy treat to make and it will use up a large amount of that leftover candy.

The candy bark has a great combination of sweet and salty flavors. You can definitely substitute any candy that you have on hand, just be sure to balance out the sweet and salty.

Halloween Candy Bark

1 lb. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 Butterfinger candy bars (or 8 fun size bars), roughly chopped
3 Toffee candy bars (or 6 fun size bars), roughly chopped
8 Reese cups, cut into wedges
1/4 cup honey roasted peanuts
3 oz. yellow and orange peanut M&Ms, coarsely chopped
3 oz. good quality white chocolate, finely chopped

Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate over the foil and smooth into a thin layer with a spatula. Evenly sprinkle the chopped candy bars, Reese cups, honey roasted peanuts and peanut M&Ms over the melted chocolate. Press gently to adhere the candy to the melted chocolate. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 30 mins.

Melt the white chocolate again using the double boiler method, until smooth. Drizzle over the chilled candy bark. Return to the fridge and let chill again until the white chocolate is set, 30 mins. more.

Peel the sheet of chocolate away from the foil and break into irregular pieces. Store in an airtight container in fridge until ready to serve.

I'll leave you with some pics of the girls from Halloween. The little ones were Jessie the cowgirl from Toy Story and her horse, Bullseye. Of course they weren't as cooperative on Halloween night so I'm glad I got this pic a few weeks before.

Our oldest daughter made up her own costume this year, she hopes to become a fashion designer one day so that's what she chose to dress up as. I always love this time of year and can't wait to see what they decide to be next Halloween!
