It’s that time of year when candy corn is everywhere you look! And I don’t think anyone has any complaints about that. My husband is straight up obsessed with candy corn. He can’t get enough of that stuff. So each year, I make him a candy corn themed Halloween treat. Last year, I made a candy corn brownie pizza, which was AWESOME! This year, I made this delicious Halloween Bark!
You can tell just by looking at the ingredients list that this is gonna be good. White chocolate, candy corn, pretzels, oreos…I mean, it doesn’t get much better (or sweeter) than that. I like that this is a no-bake recipe. It’s quick and easy to throw together, and then it doesn’t take long to harden in the refrigerator. I also liked that the pretzels added a bit of salty to the sweet. Without them, I think it would’ve been a little too rich. That being said, I wish I’d put in more pretzels!
Also, I made my bark a little too thick. It was about an inch thick, but it really probably should have been about half that. So make sure to spread your ingredients out all the way to the ends of a large cookie sheet before pouring the chocolate over. Trust me, the bark was still delicious even though it was thick, but you’ll get more servings out of it being thinner, and it will be a bit more “snacky” than a thick heavy chunk of chocolate.

14 Oreos, broken (you could get the Halloween oreos with orange frosting or plain)
2 bags of white chocolate chips
1 cup candy corn
1/2 cup of pretzel sticks (I found myself wanting more, so you might want to increase the amount a little)
Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Spread 1/2 broken cookies, 1/2 pretzels and 3/4 of the candy corn onto paper.
Place your white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between, until melted.
Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the pan and spread if necessary for even coverage. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the white chocolate while it is still wet.
Place cookie tray in refrigerator until firm (mine took about 30 minutes). Remove from fridge and break into pieces using your hands. (I tried it with a mallet, and trust me, hands are better)
