Textured Halloween Bark

I love it when I can use a product for more than one project … guess what I used to get the impressions in this candy.

If you guessed texture tiles that were designed for fondant or icing … you were right!  I found these at Michael’s and are from Duff … of course!  The two tiles (5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ each) come in one package and are pretty cheap inexpensive.  This is what they look like …

This is what you will need …

  • Candy melts (I used white, dark chocolate and orange)
  • Texture tiles
  • M&M’s
  • Rice Krispies cereal (optional)
  • Skull candies (Wilton)
  • Rubber or silicone spatula

Decide which side of the tiles you will use … I almost used the wrong side of the “words” tile … the words would have been backwards!  Scoop some melted dark chocolate on the spider webs … and spread it around …

Using a spatula, scrape off excess chocolate (it can be reused).  Let the chocolate firm up …

As you can see … it is not scraped perfectly clean …

Now repeat using orange melted candy on the words tile.  Then mix some Rice Krispies into the melted white chocolate … you could leave it plain, add nuts or whatever you like.  Pour the white chocolate on top of the spider webs and gently spread around …

Pour dark chocolate on the words tile and spread it around … then put the tiles in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to firm up …

The candy will remove from the tiles very easily.  The edges are not smooth … but I think that’s OK … it adds character …

To decorate … I used melted orange chocolate and M&M’s to create spiders …

I used more melted chocolate to “glue” the skull candies …

This is one of those “flexible” projects … change-up the colors … use different decorations … use the whole tile or just a small part … use your imagination!

I like feedback … please leave a comment!!!
