Halloween Candy…Yum!!

By Lori Powell

After the autumn leaves comes the arrival of our spookiest of holidays, Halloween. I am ready for it this year with three bags of candy and I will be taking part of my neighborhood ghost walk. Since my town dates back to the 1600s  there is a ton of history here and, well, some residents just have never left…spooky!

I am always hopeful that we will have a bunch of trick-or-treaters and I am always surprised the next day by how much candy didn’t get gobbled up.

So here is a quick recipe to take care of some of the excess. Enjoy the fun of creating new candy with your candy leftovers!

Halloween Candy Bark
Prep: 5 minutes  Chill: 10 minutes
Makes about 10 pieces

½ cup M&Ms
½ cup candy corn and pumpkins
8 ounces good-quality dark chocolate (60 to 70% cocoa solids), chopped into chunks
½ cup toasted pecans

Stir together candy in a bowl.  Line a sheet pan with heavy-duty foil.

Put chocolate in a heatproof glass bowl and melt in a microwave.  Be careful not to overheat or chocolate will scorch.  Stir in pecans and spread evenly with a rubber spatula onto foil-lined pan, shaping  into an11-  x 7-inch rectangle. Immediately sprinkle candy evenly over the top and chill, about 10 minutes.  Break into pieces.

TIPS: You can add dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries. Or chop other Halloween candy bars, such as Kit Kat and Twix, and sprinkle over top of bark.
