Halloween Candy Corn Bark + Meal Plan

Halloween is a little bit fun.

I love scary movies, gory costumes and any excuse to decorate the house. This year has been pretty quiet, given I'm so busy, but I'll never let a "holiday" go without making some kind of themed food. I've seen Christmas bark made before, with crushed peppermint and other goodies, so I thought why not Halloween too?

I'd had some candy corn I bought in the last order from USA Foods, but I don't really like it... shock horror, I know. Mixed with chocolate, though, it's much more fun!

And so easy. Melt some chocolate, spread it out on foil or waxed paper, dot your goodies over, refrigerate. Something different!

Halloween dinners usually are something entirely normal, but given a stupid name for the evening. The grosser the better! Brains, guts, eyeballs, blood, anything goes at this time of year :)

I'm pretty sure I'll be telling Veggie Dad his fried rice is actually maggots.

    I had a huge Halloween party for the girls last year. Being that I grew up in America, I went the whole hog and had the candy corn & mini pumpkins, the bowl of cold pasts "guts", the eyeball jellies, chocolate spiders, and more sugar than you could shake a stick at. Somehow I ended up with about 2kg of candy corns left so I put them in the freezer (couldn't bear to throw away). This "recipe" might be just the trick to use them up! Thanks.

  3. ohhhhh I would totally have given anything to grow up in America! I was such a wannabe. Still sort of am... hence the candy corn!

  4. Thanks for sending over the fence!
