Ingredients for chocolate Halloween bark

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this Halloween bark:

  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips. I used Enjoy Life chips, which are free from 14 allergens.
  • Candy corn. Try the Yum Earth brand, which is organic, vegetarian, and gluten free.
  • Pretzel sticks. Snyder’s of Hanover makes gluten-free pretzels sticks that my whole family loves to snack on!
  • Pumpkin seeds (also called pepitas). I used SunRidge Farms organic pumpkin seeds, but there are many great ones on the market, like these.

How to make chocolate Halloween bark

Line an 8″x8″ baking dish with parchment paper. Heat 10 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips and pour it evenly into the baking dish.

One way to easily melt the chocolate is to put it in a microwave-safe dish, and then microwave it in 30-second intervals, stirring each time.

After spreading the melted chocolate in the baking dish, quickly sprinkle the candy corn, pumpkin seeds, and pretzel sticks over the top. You might prefer to break the pretzel sticks into smaller pieces before sprinkling them on top.

Chill the dish until firm. Then cut into pieces. Enjoy!
