How to Make Halloween Double Chocolate Bark in the Microwave

Double Chocolate Halloween Bark isn’t a new Halloween treat and I’ve kept this recipe pretty traditional, only I make it in the microwave because I don’t have a double boiler. What I love about this recipe is that you can customize it to your liking but I generally feel that as long as you keep the amount of white chocolate to semi-sweet chocolate ratio the same, whether it’s 1 cup each or you double your batch for example, you’re in good hands.

  1. Pour the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 30-second increments (stirring the chips between each microwave session) until the chocolate has melted, and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Spread the chocolate evenly into the lined pan, then place pan in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  3. Melt white chocolate in the microwave just as you did with the previous chocolate chips. If the white chocolate chips to not melt smooth, stir in 2 tablespoons of shortening.
  4. Allow white chocolate to cool for 1 minute, then remove pan from the freezer and spread white chocolate mixture on top of the chocolate layer, making it as smooth as possible.
  5. While the white chocolate is still smooth, arrange Halloween sprinkles, Mini Reeses Pieces, or candy eyes on the chocolate.
    Gently press candy into the chocolate with the back of a spatula.
  6. Return pan to the freezer for another 20 minutes.

I love that you can throw the chocolate in the microwave and within minutes it’s done and setting.  The trick to layering the chocolate without it melting everything together is to make sure that the chocolate layer is completely cooled and has hardened before you spread the white chocolate on top.

This bark, of course, makes the perfect teacher or neighbour gift and is easy enough that even the kids can help out. Enjoy!
