Ingredients & substitutes
- White chocolate bars are the base of the bark. Use good quality white chocolate. I used Lindt white chocolate and it tasted great. You can also use white chocolate chips of good quality. Avoid using white chocolate wafers or candy melts. They do not taste as good as real white chocolate.
- Purple food colouring, is one of the main Halloween theme colours and I loved that dark tint of purple on the white chocolate canvas.
- Green food colouring, for this white chocolate bark, use vibrant green food colour. Darker green hues won’t be pop up as well as the lighter hue of green.
- Orange food colouring, one of my favourite colours for Halloween is orange. To be specific, vivid orange food colouring is recommended for this white chocolate bark to match perfectly the vivid Halloween theme. You can always go with different colours of your liking.
- Flo–Coat candy coating, this is a very important ingredient, especially when playing with chocolate and food colouring. Flo-coat candy emulsion must be added to the white chocolate before the food colouring to prevent the chocolate from seizing. More info about Flo-Coat Candy bellow.
- Halloween sprinkles and eye candies, the second important ingredients are sprinkles and eye candies. They add an extra creepy and playful element to the bark. Without Halloween sprinkles and eye candies, it wouldn’t be a Halloween bark.
How to make white chocolate Halloween bark
Step 1 – Cut the white chocolate
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, this will prevent the chocolate from sticking and make it easier to remove the bark from the baking sheet once it has set. Cut the white chocolate into small pieces with a large knife. For the best results on cutting the white chocolate bar, is to use large and long knife and to cut the white chocolate diagonally. This will make it easier to manipulate the knife over the chocolate.
Step 2 – Melt the white chocolate
You have two options to melt the white chocolate.
To melt the white chocolate in the microwave, simply place the cut white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and heat the chocolate in 30-seconds intervals, stiring after each interval until it’s completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat, as white chocolate can scorch easily.
To melt the white chocolate on the stove top, use a double boiler or a heatproof bowl and place it over a pot of simmering water. Stir the white chocolate constantly until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
Step 3 – Add food colouring
Important step to colour one part of the white chocolate. Take 3 small bowls and add 3 tablespoons of melted white chocolate in each bowl. In each bowl, add 5 drops of Flo-Coat candy emulsion and stir it well with a spatula. Now you can add into each bowl the purple, green and orange food colouring. Stir the colouring in, until it’s evenly distributed. Add more colouring to achieve the desired colour, if needed. Work fast in this step, as the white chocolate is hardening faster with the smaller amount of chocolate.
Step 4 – Spread the white chocolate
Working quickly, pour the baste white chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet. Using an offset spatula, spread the chocolate in each corner of the baking sheet and even on top.
Step 5 – Swirl and decorate
Take the three bowls with coloured white chocolate and pour each coloured chocolate onto the white chocolate base in circular motion (create circles). With a toothpick, swirl the colours together, creating a marbled or spider web look like effect. While the chocolate is still wet, place the eye candies in different places of the bark and sprinkle generously with Halloween sprinkles over the entire surface.
Step 6 – Chill and set
Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until the chocolate has completely set.
Step 7 – Break into pieces and enjoy
Remove the chocolate bark from the refrigerator once it’s firm and set. Break the bark into irregular pieces with your hands or large knife.
- Use good quality chocolate: Start with high-quality chocolate, whether it’s white, milk or dark chocolate
- Melt the chocolate properly: Follow the instructions properly on how to melt the white chocolate, not to burn it. White chocolate tends to burn fasted than milk or dark chocolate.
- Use Flo-Coat candy emulsion (oil): To add colour to the white chocolate is only possible with this special Flo-Coat candy emulsion. Don’t try to colour white chocolate just with the food colouring. Follow precisely the instruction on how to colour white chocolate.
- Sprinkle the Halloween sprinkles while the chocolate is wet: Add all the decoration, while the chocolate is still wet. This ensures they adhere properly.
- Break into irregular pieces: For a fun look, when it’s fully set, break the chocolate bark into irregular pieces.
- Chill for best results: Make sure you let the chocolate bark to set for at least 2 hours. This ensures it hardens properly and has a glossy finish.
Let your imagination flow. Make a different kind of chocolate barks. Use different chocolate, milk or dark chocolate, or use all three chocolates together. Use different candies or food colouring. Sweet and salty options like pretzels or Oreo cookies are also a great idea to create fun chocolate bark. Here are a few variations you may try for chocolate bark:
- Monster Mash Bark: Use green and orange food colouring for the base white chocolate. Mix in mini marshmallow and candy corn for a colourful twist. Add more googly eyes or candy eyes for playful monster effect.
- Witch’s Brew Bark: Use green and purple food colouring to give a witchy look. Add crushed Oreo cookies, gummy warm, candy eyes and Halloween sprinkles for extra spooky appeal.
- Mummy Wrap Bark: Drizzle melted dark chocolate over the white chocolate base to create bandages. Place candy eyes over the dark chocolate to resemble mummy eyes.
- Vampire’s Bite Bark: Colour the white chocolate with deep red food colouring for bloody effect. Add red-coloured candies and finish with white fangs made from white chocolate or marshmallows.
- Spooky Forest Bark: Use dark chocolate as the base and create a spooky forest effect with a toothpick. Sprinkle crashed graham crackers to represent a forest floor. Add ghost and tree edible decoration.
