Well, hello there. It’s Halloween.
Have you gorged on Halloween candy? Done some trick-or-treating? Strategically (or in an OCD manor..?) counted and sorted all of your candy? Did you spit on the doormat of the house who gave apples and popcorn?
Here’s the thing about Halloween. It’s freaking awesome. It’s great when you get to spend it with your best friend and even better if you get to cuddle up with a boy and watch a scary movie. I take what I can get, even though my Halloween will be spent watching Magic Mike with a girl. But one of the best.girls.ever.
Just in case you didn’t get every single type of candy in your plastic pumpkin (or pillowcase as I used to use) that you wanted, this will solve all your problems.
Now, this bark was supposed to be brown and ORANGE but some people (ahem, me) don’t have a brain and forgot to dye the white chocolate until it was already smeared all over the dark chocolate. Genius, I know.
Regardless, this is amazing. It is sweet and decadent and versatile. Pick your favorite candies and stick them on there. There is no need for you to use the candy I chose. I just like it because, well 1) Reese’s mini cups are a) adorable and b) delicious, 2) Almond Joy holds my heart, 3) 3 Musketeers is my absolute favorite and 4) KitKats remind me of the good ol’ days.
So, go. Go buy your favorite candy or, if you already have it from trick-or-treating, stick it on some melted chocolate and add some Halloween sprinkles.
