Today’s tasty treat is Halloween inspired. With Halloween just around the corner, you can bet your boots that candy runneth over in the stores. Don’t get me wrong, I love love love walking up and down the candy aisle and browsing all the Halloween goods, but picking up a bag of already made candy is easy. Why not make your own Halloween candy?
What you need:
- 1 personal size bag of mini pretzels
- 1 small box of wheat Chex
- 1 bag of Candy Corn
- 1 and 1/2 blocks of Vanilla Almond Bark
Line a 10″ x 15″ baking sheet with wax paper. Start with a loose layer of pretzels. I spaced them about an inch apart. Next sprinkle around the Chex and Candy Corn. It’s ok if there is some wax paper showing through the layers. Once you have finished your layering, in a double boiler, melt the almond bark over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and poor the melted mixture over your layers of pretzels, Chex and Candy Corn. Using a spatula, gently smooth it over all of your dry ingredients. There should be no wax paper showing at this stage. Let the candy harden. I throw mine in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes.
Once the candy has hardened, remove from the baking sheet. With the wax paper facing up, use a hammer to break the candy into small to medium sized pieces. The almond bark is very sweet so you’ll want to keep the pieces small, but not too small.
These treats are going to be traveling so I decided to package them in these cute little tins I found.The recipe made enough to fill these two tins and half of a gallon sized ziplock bag. I had materials left over to make another batch as well.
Boo Bark is the perfect treat to take along to a Halloween party. It’s easy to make, very festive, and a little goes a long way. Enjoy!
