Halloween Bark Recipe

A Sweet and Salty Solution For Leftover Candy Corn

If you're up to your ears in leftover candy corn, we have a sweet, salty, and Halloween-appropriate solution: pretzel and candy corn chocolate bark. It may seem intimidating to make, but it's a great place to start for those new to crafting confections as the technique is fairly simple. Essentially, you melt chocolate, spread it thinly on a baking sheet, sprinkle on the toppings, allow it to set, then break it into pieces.

For the best results, try your hand at tempering the chocolate. While the process is a bit fussy, it's completely doable, provided you arm yourself with a trusty candy thermometer and a bit of patience. And this step is crucial if ultraglossy, snappy chocolate bark is what you're after. Fuss-free more your style? Try candy melts. While not exactly the same, they'll harden up glossy without the extra steps. Either way you'll want to try the salty-sweet recipe.
