Halloween Pretzel Bark, Bark, woof, howoooolllllll
This is definitely a treat for the werewolves, ghosts, and vampires in the crowd. And mummies, coworkers, teachers too. I love chocolate covered pretzels. They are da bomb. Seriously, sweet and salty yumminess.
But, confession, I’m a little bit lazy. I like FAST and QUICK and EASY treats. And these, are really that. I mean it. FAST fast. Within 20 minutes you can have the pretzel bark done, then maybe 10 minutes in the freezer and you can be chomping away. So if your kid forgot to mention that Cub Scouts needs a homemade treat when you take them tonight- in 2 hours. Or you have dinner to fix, a load of laundry cause Minion needs her sports gear washed for tomorrows game, and you need to sew a button back on for the work outfit tomorrow, here. right here. is a great treat to make- and you look like a hero because you had time ( where do you find the time? )to make something unique and homemade!
For this Halloween Pretzel Bark, you’ll need -
chocolate- I use a mix of good quality Ghiradelli 80% chocolate chips, and some Nestle Chocolate chips- all semi sweet
Almond bark- I use the kind I find at Wal-Mart. you do not get much of this in flavor, mostly the dark chocolate on the bottom
First- melt your chocolate
I line cookie sheets with parchment paper, nothing sticks and it’s easy clean up. You should get a roll of this stuff before Christmas, you want it for all your baking needs.
Spread this and spread this, until you fill the sheet. You want it pretty thin.
Next, spread your pretzels on the chocolate.
You can do method A- line them up next to each other…this makes a thinner bark.
or method B…and slightly overlap the pretzels on the chocolate…
From this point- both pans were made a little different.
cover pretzels with melted almond bark- swirling with the chocolate and making a marbled look.
Liberally sprinkle your Halloween sprinkles all over your candy. I used an orange with black bats, and an orange/green sprinkle with spiders.
Let it cool ( can be put in the freezer for a bit), then break apart into chunks.
Spread your white almond bark all over, but much thicker.
Then add Halloween colored M&M’s along with your sprinkles. Allow to cool- then break into chunks.
Because this was so thick, I used a knife to cut/break it into pieces.
Either way, the pretzel bark is super easy and delicious!
