Halloween bark is easy to bake for beginners, however you will need to be extra careful when melting the chocolate (if you have young kids helping out).

The most fun part of the recipe is definitely adding the sprinkles, and getting to break the frozen bark into bite size spooky pieces at the end.

Grab your Halloween movie night bucket list, and a few simple ingredients, and you have the perfect family night activity that you can also eat!

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.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
