Halloween chocolate bark

Camille Styles showed us how to make her Halloween chocolate bark. It’s such a simple recipe, great for making your sweet treats into something special – and it’s sure to please trick-or-treaters large and small.

Serves 8
8 oz (about 225 g) semisweet (dark) chocolate, chopped
8 oz (about 225 g) white chocolate, chopped
3 – 4 cups candy (sweets), nuts, seeds, cranberries

Melt each of the chocolates individually in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, then pour the semisweet (dark) chocolate over one side of the paper, and the white chocolate over the other side of the paper, keeping them separate and just touching where they meet in the middle. Use a knife or a spatula to lightly swirl and marble the chocolates together in the middle, then sprinkle the toppings over the chocolate in whatever design you like. Chill until firm, 1 – 2 hours. Use a metal spoon or other heavy object to break it up into shards, then eat up!
