How To Make Chocolate Spider Web Halloween Bark
It's best to get all your ingredients ready to go. Once the almond bark is melted everything needs to be ready to use so the chocolate almond bark doesn't harden before you get everything added to it.
To start you need to melt the chocolate almond bark. You can melt it in a double boiler or in the microwave. To melt in the microwave place almond bark in large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute on high, then stir. Continue melting in 30 second intervals making sure to stir in between, until chocolate is completely melted.
In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt the white almond bark in the microwave following the same steps as the chocolate bark.
Spread the chocolate almond bark about ¼ of inch thick on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
Place about 5 to 6 pretzel sticks in the shape of a spider web. If needed you can break the sticks in half to fit them in.
Once white almond bark is melted, place it in a piping bag and cut the tip off the bag then pipe lines connecting each pretzel stick in the web formation.
Add the candy spiders to the center of each web and randomly around the web. Then fill in the remaining open spaces around the webs, with Halloween sprinkles.
Set aside and allow the chocolate to harden. Once the chocolate has set, use a knife to cut chocolate into pieces that resemble bark or break apart into pieces.
How To Store
To Store: Once the bark is completely set you can store broken pieces in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
To Freeze: Place the Halloween bark in a freezer safe bag and place it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Recipe Tips For Making Bark
- If you don't have a piping bag you can use a resealable plastic bag and cut off the corner to drizzle the white almond bark over the top.
- Keep an eye on the almond bark as you are melting it. You don't want to overcook it.
- You can allow the bark to harden at room temperature in a cool spot or you can place it in the refrigerator to harden. If you place it in the refrigerator be aware that condensation can occur and the bark may absorb odors in the refrigerator.
- Do not skip the step of lining the baking sheet with parchment paper. It makes it easier to lift the bark to break it into pieces once it is set.
- Don't handle the bark at all until it is fully harden to avoid leaving smudges and indentions in the chocolate.
