This colorful bark features the best of two Halloween favorites: candy corn and chocolate! It's crunchy, chewy, festive and—not surprisingly—quite sugary, so it's perfect for candy corn lovers and revelers with a strong sweet tooth.


  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining it with aluminum foil.

  3. In separate bowls, melt the chocolates in the microwave or over a double boiler.

  4. Add half of the candy corn and all of the crispy rice cereal to the melted semi-sweet chocolate and pour the chocolate onto the baking sheet. Using a spoon or spatula, smooth the chocolate out in an even layer. It does not have to cover the whole pan.

  5. Take a spoon and drizzle small amounts of white chocolate over the dark chocolate in a random pattern.

  6. Use a toothpick or the tip of a knife to swirl the two chocolates together. Don’t overswirl and muddy the colors—you should still be able to see the distinct chocolate colors in the end.

  7. Scatter the remaining 1/2 cup candy corn over the wet chocolates, sprinkling randomly and pressing them gently into the chocolate until they adhere.
