How to Make Spooky Halloween Bark
Melt black candy melts according to package instructions. Add to a piping bag or zip lock bag.
Melt orange candy melts and 1 tsp of paramount crystals or coconut oil to a bowl. Melt according to package instructions.
Once smooth, pour out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Smooth out to 1/8″ thickness.
Snip the tip of your piping bag (or ziplock bag). Starting in the center make a dot.
Without releasing pressure create a circle around the dot but continue to go around and around until you run out of space.
Using a toothpick or skewer, start at the center dot and drag the tip away from the center. Move over just a little and drag the tip towards the center dot. Complete this pattern all the way around the bark.
Add large eyes first, then the smaller eyes, and fill in the rest with Halloween Sprinkles.
Chill in the fridge for 15-20 mins.
Break apart and enjoy.
