Really simply and easy to make Halloween chocolate bark – perfect idea for a home-made trick-or-treat idea, or even just for the family!


Halloween 2015 is quickly approaching so I thought it was important that I start posting my delicious recipes for this years celebrations! (Even though this is my first Halloween on the blog!)

This didn’t stop me wanting to jazz up the recipe a bit for Halloween – and with the rise of coloured sweets & chocolates this seemed ideal! A mix of white chocolate, orange candy melts, and oodles of sweets = heaven!

Chocolate bark

I posted my recipe for my chocolate bark early in July and it was a massive hit – even though its so simple! I have since created Christmas bark , Easter bark and even Valentines bark as very occasion needs it own themed bark!

Chocolate bark is one of those little treats that is super fun to make with children or your friends, and makes a super cute idea for presents if you want to make something home-made that everyone will love!

Alternative flavours

My family absolutely adores it when I make chocolate bark as its so simple, but so so yummy! I always make them their own personal ones with their favourite sweets – especially if I am after a favour!

Gifting ideas

I always see posts on my blog or facebook fan page about how chocolate bark is a firm favourite for gifts! As you adapt the bark to any occasion, teamed with some truffles it makes the perfect homemade present or in this case, Halloween party treats!

Other Halloween recipes

Another idea you could do for Halloween is to use my Easter fudge recipe, just use the same Halloweeny Sweets, or even try to dye the fudge a different colour! SO many Halloween treats its endless!

I always associate Halloween with pumpkins so you can find many a pumpkin related treat on my blog at the moment. My no bake pumpkin spice cheesecake is always a success but my pumpkin cupcakes are just as popular!! Enjoy!

  • 350 g white chocolate
  • 350 g dark chocolate
  • 200 g spooky peanut M&Ms
  • Halloween sweets
  • Halloween sprinkles
  • Orange food colouring


  • Line a 9x13 inch tray with parchment paper – leave to the side.
  • Prep what sweets/chocolate’s are going on your bark – I crushed some of my M&Ms & finger biscuits’s – be careful if using a knife to crush them though, don’t cut yourself!
  • Melt the white chocolate either in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water (double boiler), or in the microwave on short bursts!
  • Leave to cool slightly and then add the orange food colouring
  • Pour the dark chocolate into the tray and spread evenly, drizzle your orange coloured chocolate over the top and using the end of a cake tester (or whatever you want) swirl together to make a marble pattern!
  • Sprinkle over your decorations and leave to set – sometimes this is easier in the fridge but it might discolour the sweets slightly!
  • Cut/break into shards and enjoy!


  • This lovely little treat will last for weeks if kept in the right conditions – mine never lasts this long but I give it a 1 month date from making depending on what you use as chocolate use-by-dates are so long!
  • You can obviously use whatever sweets & chocolates that you fancy, especially anything Halloweeny, or the colours of Halloween are perfect!

    Hi i made this recipe this afternoon but when i went to break it into pieces it was very bendy and soft, it is also soft when you eat it and doesn’t have a snap, but i’m not sure why ??

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 3, 2022 at 8:49 pm

      Hiya! This sounds like it just needs longer to set! Hope this helps! x

    Can I ask what you mean by orange candy melts?

  3. Lesley Jean Turner on November 5, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    Hi Jane,
    I just would like to thank you for all these amazing recipies, I often do some recipie or the other, last christmas I made your Ginger trifle, your ginger cheesecake, gingerbread men, ginger loaf and probably other that I cant think at the moment, but they were all delightful, most weeks I make something for when the family comes round, I’ve made your biscoff cupcakes at the end of term for a thank you for the teachers at my grand childrens school I have 5 all at the same school so I make 48 for them to take and just put in the staff room they are very popular the teachers love them so your recipies bring a lot of pleasure and today ive ordered the trifle bowl because even though I did your trifle last year I didnt use the right bowl and I looked on amazon today and they’ve reduced it this year only £18 so im so excited.
    A couple of weeks ago I made your cake thats on the front of your book, It tasted amazing but OMG it was a disaster I used stork for the buttercream and the caramel sauce just rolled all over off the edge instead of drippingand then as I put the buttercream swirls on the top by the time I was doing the 12th swirl the others all started to slip off so I put it in the fridge quick to set when I next looked there was only 1 swirl left on the top so you can imagine what it looked like.
    Halloween I made your pumpkin cupcakes, brownies, halloween bark, bloody halloween cake which I was really impressed with that, ginger bread mummies, and today im making your bonfire cupcakes for a fire work party tomorrow and I still have chocolate left I might do the bonfire bark, but I just felt I wanted you to know what a pleasure it is to follow you, I love seeing you on this morning your such a natural I hope you go far look forward to doing many more of your recipies. keep up the good work xx

    Where did you get your Halloween sweets from?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 25, 2018 at 9:38 am

      Mixture of hobby craft and supermarkets around Halloween time.

    What is the easiest way to break up the slab? I don’t want it to shatter in to tiny pieces and not sure how easy cutting it will be! X

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 30, 2015 at 8:29 pm

      You just have to go with it and cut it as best you can 🙂 part of the charm is it’ll break parts itself hence why its ‘bark’ so it’ll be fine!! X

  6. […] Jane always comes up with somethng tasty: bark is so easy to make yet looks so effective, whether just as a treat or to be wrapped as a gift. This Halloween version is no different! http://janespatisserie.com/2015/10/14/halloween-bark/comment-page-1/ […]

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 14, 2015 at 2:00 pm

      Ohhh you definitely should! Even better when it’s themed! ? thank you!

    • The Culinary Jumble on October 14, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      I think I will have a look at what kind of sweeties they have here (certainly a lot less choice than in the UK) and go for it!

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 14, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      Ohh yes please do! Even just the colours are better than nothing! 🙂
