  • Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.
  • Pour the white chocolate chips into a large heat-proof bowl or the top of a double boiler. Pour the candy melts into smaller heat-proof bowls.
  • Bring two pots of water to a boil - one large and one small.
  • Place each bowl of the candy melts over the smaller pot, ensuring that the bowl does not touch the water. Melt, stirring often, until smooth. Set aside and repeat with the remaining bowls of candy melts. See notes below for how to melt the candy melts in the microwave.
  • Set the larger bowl of white chocolate chips over the larger pot, ensuring the bowl is just over the water and not touching it. Heat, stirring frequently, until smooth.
  • Using a silicone spatula or offset spatula, spread the melted white chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet, about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the candy melts all over the top of the white chocolate.
  • Use toothpicks to gently swirl the colors together.
  • Sprinkle on the halloween candy and colored sugar sprinkles.
  • Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or allow to set at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • Use a knife to cut the bark into approximately 16 pieces.



Tips and Techniques

  • You can use any color combination of candy melts that you prefer.
  • If the color candy melts that you want are unavailable, you can use white candy melts or extra white chocolate chips and food dye to obtain the desired color.
  • Candy melts won’t set up as quickly as the white chocolate so it is recommend to melt those first, if using just one pot.
  • You can also melt the candy melts in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds on 50% power, then stir and continue heating and stirring 15 seconds at a time until melted and smooth.
  • If you’re using bowls over pots of boiling water to melt the chocolate and candy melts, make sure that the bowls don’t touch the boiling water in the pot. You want the bowls to sit just above the water.
  • Store leftover white chocolate bark in an airtight container at room temperature (below 70°F). It will keep for 2-3 weeks. You can also store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator, if necessary.
