Halloween bark?
« on: August 11, 2007, 01:04:43 AM »
In December I make a peppermint bark - it's just colored melting chocolates.  One layer of red chocolate, one of white chocolate, toss over broken candy canes (small pieces!) and chill until hard, then break into chunks.  I think I even added some kind of peppermint extract thing before but didn't have anything like that last time I made it.

Anyways, I was thinking it would be cool to have a version for Halloween, since everyone I know loves the peppermint bark.  Any suggestions?

you could use white bark with orange food coloring, you could even add some flavor if you wanted.

White chocolate and dark chocolate with orange hard candies in the middle.

That would be good. If you can make your own hard candy you could make orange colored peppermints. I have a recipe if you'd like, I make hard candy suckers.

or just make the regular bark and stick some gummy worms on it!

If you look around you can find "orange" (flavor and color) hard candies

chocolate and orange are a good combo too. (ever had one of those cocolate "oranges"?)

Gummy worms are good too.....

What about coloring the white chocolate orange and adding chopped up candy bars to it?  Peanut butter cups, snickers, etc...


to remind people of trick-or-treating loot ;)
