Reviews forHalloween Candy Bark
"This was really a tasty and pretty treat. I think I will double the peanuts and leave out the Oreos next time."
"I prepared this recipe for the first time and I used 14-oz. package of Make & Mold White Mint Candy Wafer Disks, 2 Tsp. butter for greasing the foil, 2 cups Utz's sour dough pretzels, broken into small pieces, about 1 cup miniature Oreo sandwich cookies, broken into small pieces, 3/4 cup INDIAN corn as I didn't have candy corn on hand, 3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, 1/2 cup miniature M & M baking bits in place of the regular milk chocolate M & M candy. I melted the discs in a double boiler over boiling water until smooth, then I used a 14x10" baking pan to line with the foil. I put the balance of the butter IN with the meltedcandy wafer disks after greasing the foil. What I did was prepare the bark and then I refrigerated the candy to have it firm up. (FOR ME, I'd found that chilling the candy makes it firm and easier for me to handle.) I think the candy looked very colorful! I plan to take it to one of the depts. where I volunteer at the local hospital! Peggie Brott, thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein p.s. I omitted the Reese's pieces! But who knows? I plan to use this recipe again & will plan to purchase candy corn & Reese's pieces and perhaps a package of the Harvest mix (candy pmpkins, candy corn, Indian corn combination)! I sampled the bark and I found it to be tasty! I admit that the toppings did fall off and I think that I also WILL scale back on the toppings so that they don't come off! "Momoflandl"'s suggestion WAS a very good one-trimming down the quantities of the toppings so that they stay on the candy and don't fall off! DELowenstein"
"This was easy and a hit with the kids. I think all the toppings were good but just a lot of overall stuff on there. Next time I will trim the quantities down a bit so that the extras don't fall off."
