My sweet tooth gets the best of me at times and my ideas for creating goodies run wild. An all-time favorite of mine to make is peppermint bark, but it’s a little early to start that. Instead, I came up with the idea to create a white chocolate candy corn bark, just in time for Halloween! This recipe is extremely quick to make and perfect for little ones to be involved in with decorating.
I’ve always had the hardest time melting down white chocolate, until I found my secret of adding coconut oil. I can’t preach enough how well this works; no more clumps or burnt chocolate. I found white chocolate melts and orange colored chocolate melts at my local craft store, which was perfect in complimenting the colors of candy corn. I recommend lining your pan with parchment paper, this way the bark will break off easier. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need:
1 bag white chocolate or white chocolate melts
¼ cup orange chocolate melts
3 teaspoons Kelapo Coconut Oil, divided
½ cup candy corn
- Place white chocolate in a stainless steel bowl over a double boil and add in 2 teaspoons coconut oil. Stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted. Once melted, pour over a sheet lined with parchment paper and smooth out until leveled and set aside.
- Next, place orange chocolate melts in a stainless steel bowl over a double boil and add in 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted. Once melted, drizzle orange chocolate over the white chocolate with a fork.
- Once complete, add candy corn to the top layer for decoration.
- Place in the refrigerator for around 1 hour, until completely hardened.
- Remove bark from parchment paper and break apart to form separate pieces. Enjoy!
This whole creation literally took around 15-20 minutes to make, which is wonderful for a last minute party dessert. The bark came out silky smooth, with a light coconut taste. Yum! The candy corn is a fun idea and you could even add yellow chocolate melts into the mix in order to get all three colors that candy corn is made up of. Looking for more Halloween treats?
