Serving Up {Candy}: Halloween Bark

Does your neighborhood do the "Boo" for Halloween?  It's the treat that you get on your doorstep that you must reciprocate to two other neighbors within the next 24 hours.  My kids love it - I kind of dread it.  Last year we got "boo'ed" twice.  After the first "boo" I put the picture of the ghost in our front window, which ought to ensure that we don't get "boo'ed" again.  Our second "boo-ing" occurred at our back door, which doesn't have a visual of our front window.  This year I may photocopy the picture and place it in all of our windows just to be on the safe side.

I realize that I'm being a bit ornery and may have just defeated my purpose of posting this fun, delicious recipe that would be just perfect for a "boo" treat.  Oops!  But really, this is a fun Halloween treat that would make a great treat (if you can't get out of getting "boo-ed :)

I prepared early this year and made a double batch of the bark and stuck it in my freezer so that we would be prepared should the (dreaded) "boo-ing" occur.  So far no "boo" has occurred, but we are down to only a sandwich sized ziploc of the bark remaining!  I guess that speaks to the deliciousness of the recipe!

(recipe from Homebased Mom)
printable version
14 whole Oreos, broken up into thirds or quarters
1 1/2 cup pretzels, broken into pieces
1 lb. white chocolate or white chocolate melts
1 cup candy corn
Halloween sprinkles

Break the cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 of the candy corn onto a parchment lined cookie tray.
Place the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until it is completely melted and smooth.
Pour the chocolate over the cookie/pretzel/candy mixture.  Toss gently with a spatula to ensure everything gets coated.  Sprinkle the remaining candy corn over the top and sprinkle with Halloween sprinkles (optional).
Place in a cool place and allow to cool and harden.  Once the chocolate has set up, break it into bite sized pieces.
