Perfect Recipe for all that leftover Trick or Treat Candy

Spooky Candy bark you can make to celebrate Halloween or repurpose all that leftover Halloween candy! When we had a Halloween sleepover a few days ago, the kiddos made some tasty spooktacular treats. I did not want to toss the leftover chocolate. I also had more leftover candy, googly eyes, and sprinkles and knew I had to use it all up somehow. I decided a batch of candy bark was in order.

Spooky Halloween Candy Bark


  • Candy Coating in Various Colors, 1 bag of Green, Orange, Purple
  • Candy: Candy Corn, Jelly Beans and whatever else you get for trick or treating
  • Candy Googly Eyes
  • Sprinkles: In Halloween Colors
  • Wax Paper

How To:

STEP 1: I lined a cookie sheet with waxed paper. 

STEP 2: I melted each color of candy coating in the microwave and dropped it on the wax paper randomly, making sure the colors overlapped.

STEP 3: Then I took a fork and ran it through the coating, mixing and swirling it a little but making sure not to mix it so much that the colors blending together (turning them into a yucky color). I also made sure it was spread out well.

STEP 4: Then I took the rest of the googly eyes and candy and placed them all over the bark. Next up, sprinkles!

STEP 5: I could have let it sit out to harden, but I'm too impatient. I stuck the cookie sheet in the fridge and it was hard in no time. 

STEP 6: Then I broke it up into pieces.

Macaroni Tip:  This is another one of those treats you can make your own by using colors for any party. I think this is going to be my go-to treat every time I have leftover candy coating. 

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
