Halloween Cookie BarkOctober 21st, 2010 by Sara
It’s about this time of year that my diet starts to slide into dangerous sweet-dominant territory. I’m not even a huge sweets person, but Halloween marks the descent into the festive holiday season, and you just can’t say no to many of its treats.
My particular downfall in October is candy corn. I don’t understand how little triangles of pure sugar can make me so happy – and then so sick – but I crave the autumn mix bags. So imagine my delight when I stumbled across this recipe: Halloween Cookie Bark. It’s essentially a ton of bad for you treats all mixed into one convenient medium, and I’ll need to try it immediately!
Halloween Cookie Bark (Makes about 16 portions)
-14 to 16 whole Oreos, broken up (use the orange Halloween Oreos if you can find them!)
- 1.5 cups mini pretzels, broken into pieces
-1 pound white chocolate wafers
-1 cup candy corn
-Brown and orange colored sprinkles, as needed
Place waxed paper on large cookie sheet. Spread cookies, pretzels, and about 3/4 cup of the candy corn into a 13×9″ rectangle on the paper.
Place chocolate in glass measuring cup and heat in microwave for about 1.5 minutes. Stir and then microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until melted and smooth.
Drizzle melted chocolate immediately over cookie mixture, spreading with spatula (if needed) to coat evenly. Top with reserved candy corn and sprinkles. Work quickly before chocolate hardens.
Place into refrigerator until firm. Remove and gently break apart into small pieces for serving. Reserve in air-tight container.
*If candy corn isn’t your thing (weirdo), you can swap it out for M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces… equally delicious!
