Halloween Candy Corn Bark

Halloween… the time of year for all things spooky. I was never a fan of Halloween as a kid. Now don’t get me wrong. I love copious amounts of Trick-o-Treat candy, but all the ghouls, witches, and goblins truly freaked me out.

I was never one to be particularly entertained by the Freddy Krueger, Jason or Halloween movies. To be honest, I would “watch” them through the cracks of my fingers or from the edge of my pillow, but never to the point that I could follow the plot or retell the story.

I would walk through haunted houses in complete blindness latching myself onto the person in front of me as a guide. To this day, the scary aspects of Halloween do not appeal to me. I am as big of a scardy cat today as I was fifteen years ago. However, I do like the cute, fun, playful side of Halloween and definitely like creating treats based upon this time of the year.

So I thought I would throw together something fun and host a giveaway just in time for the 31st! My first Halloween themed sweet treat is Candy Corn Bark. This stuff is sinfully sweet, but so cute and easy – I could not resist giving a whirl! I hope you enjoy this recipe, and I hope it doesn’t hurt your teeth too much!

Candy Corn Bark


10 Halloween-colored chocolate sandwich cookies, chopped (I used regular Oreos)
3/4 cup broken small pretzel sticks
12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
1 cup candy corn
orange and brown sprinkles


1. Line an 8×8 baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Spread the cookies and pretzels in the bottom of the pan.

3. Melt chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave, stirring frequently until melted. Remove from the heat while there are still a few chunks, and stir until smooth. White chocolate burns easily.

4. Drizzle chocolate with a spoon over the goodies in the pan, spreading the top flat to coat evenly.

5. Top with candy corn and sprinkles. Let cool until firm. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

    I love the mini Heath bars too but I also love to put the candy corn in a big bowl with peanuts, almonds, pecans and dark chocolate chips and eat together! Wonderful taste in your mouth! :)


  11. Liz — September 24, 2011 at 12:02 pm

  12. Jennifer Gragg — September 24, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    My dad’s birthday is Halloween, so growing up it was always a double hit day. As I got to be an adult and a mom it just stayed my favorite holiday…all the fun of being a kid allowed to stay out late and get candy, with none of the pomp and circumstance (not to mention dishes) of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I to am not interested in the freaky, scary side…but the cute, fun side is right up my alley. My favorite candy is actually candies, the cute little mini candy bars, so yummy, like their grown up originals, but so cute and small that you can almost convince yourself that it’s ok to eat just a few more.


  27. Jessica — October 10, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    I love candy corn and peanuts…looks so good in a candy jar together and taste like a PayDay=)


  28. Laura Coates — October 10, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    My favorite is m&m’s, candy corn and roasted peanuts. Can’t get enough of them. But they are only good with super fresh, soft candy corn.


  29. Melinda Fairley — October 11, 2011 at 11:42 am

    Can’t wait to try this bark! My most favorite candy, year round, is Reeses peanut butter cups! I totally agree with another comment: the holiday Reeses always seem better!


  30. cassie casey — October 11, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Candy corn mixed with peanuts! Or really anything chocolate!


  31. Tracy Bishop — October 12, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    My favorite Halloween candy is the pumpkin shaped Reese Peanut Butter Cups. Don’t know why they taste so much better, but they do.


  32. Sarah — October 12, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I made this today! It’s super cute!


  33. Brooke — October 13, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    I found you off of pinterest! I’m making this tomorrow because my favorite candy is candy corn and tomorrow is Fun Friday (when my daughter and I make something fun)! Thanks for the recipe.


  34. Kathy — October 13, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Any candy – chocolate and candy corn (0:


  35. Kelly — October 18, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    Do I really have to pick a favorite????Hmmmmmm…. I think my answer will depend on what I am eating at the moment……I am sooo fickle! However, no matter how I stray, I always seem to find my way back to my first love, dark chocolate. As for Halloween….. they must know I long for the dark side, so most companies are making their old favorites with dark chocolate….Snickers, Three Musketeers, Reeses. Count me in! YUM!!


  36. Trina Green — August 3, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    I am a total nut for Almond Joy! Although, anything with sugar for free door-to-door will do!


  37. joann — August 7, 2012 at 9:46 am

    the bark looks yummy!
    love mini sknickers bars.


  38. Stacey — August 17, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    Favorite candy? It’s a tie between Reese’s cups and Candy Corn! Maybe I should mix them together!


  39. Darlene — August 17, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Mmmm Candy Corn is My Favorite!


  40. Heidi Thorpe — September 8, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    I love all candy and i am a sucker for themed candy and i found pumpkin shapped snickers and had to get them! I also love the flavored candy corn


  41. Teresa — September 8, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Reese Cups are always a favorite! I’ve never been a fan of Halloween, I always hated the witches and evil that seemed to surround it, so I always had a Fall celebration with my kids. We enjoyed all the fall decorations and candy without the scary ghouls :)


  42. Marilyn — September 8, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Love almond joy miniatures


  43. Susie Williams — September 8, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    I combine candy corn & salted peanuts for the very best Halloween treat available in the modern world today!!!!


  44. Kristina Peterson — September 9, 2012 at 2:11 am

    My favorite Halloween candy is a Reesees. There is nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate!!


  45. Peggy Le Compte — September 9, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    That Bark looks amazing, I can’t wait to make it! Even though candy corn also comes out in Christmas and Valentine colors, nothing beats the white, yellow and orange ones. I buy lots of bags so I have them all year long. Good thing Halloween is coming, I only have two bags left from last year!

    My favorite of all time is SugarBabies :). My only gripe is the Halloween bags just don’t hold enough of them :-P


  46. Claire — September 15, 2012 at 1:56 am

    I love getting fun size Twix!


  47. Patricia — September 18, 2012 at 8:09 pm
