{Halloween cookie bark}

Emma is going to give a "how-to" speech this week and she is going to teach how to make cookie bark! We decided to make little samples for the other kids to take home and try it. I got this idea from my friend Trish, and she got it from Your Home Based Mom. Start out by lining your cookie sheet with wax paper. Break up pretzels and oreos and spread out on the tray. Add candy corn and fall colored m & m's.
Melt your candy disks, only microwave 30 seconds at a time or they will seize up into a chunky mess. Stir every 30 seconds until they are fully melted.

Spread the melted disks out on the tray and make sure all of the pieces are covered. Use a spatula to help. Top with a few extra candy corn and Halloween sprinkles. Wait for it to dry. Some people put it in the fridge to speed it up, but since I was going to package it, I was worried about it "sweating" if it was cold.
After it's dry, break it up into chunks.

I had enough to make all of these sample bags, a mason jar, and still have that much left over!

I made these cut tags on my cricut.

I used 3 bags of melting disks, and this is my leftover amount after filling my bags. It's super yummy!


  1. YEAH!! I have those ribbons!! :) :) and...fyi...it won't sweat if you put it in the freezer. :) that's how i make it...to speed up the process.
