Halloween Candy Bark: Tombstone Graveyard
Halloween is a few short days away and I’ve been whipping up batches of easy treats, like Tombstone Halloween Candy Bark. If you’re short on time, candy bark takes a matter of minutes and is sure to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Festive Halloween Sentiment
As a child, I loved Halloween and now as a parent that love for dressing up and sweet treats is just as strong. Seeing the excitement when my little ones pick out their costumes puts a smile on my face but the festivities start before when we spend time creating candy treats together in the kitchen. This Tombstone Halloween Candy Bark is the perfectly spooky easy treat to make with kids.
Halloween Candy Bark: Make it Your Own
I found these festive tombstone cookies and cream chocolates in the candy aisle and I instantly knew these would be the focus of this years Halloween candy bark. It’s not creepy unless there’s a graveyard involved; am I right? If you can’t find these chocolates, there will be plenty of others to choose from for a fun candy.
Don’t forget the pretzels; I think they look like fallen tree branches. More importantly, the salt perfectly compliments the sweet making it hard to just have one piece.
Trick or Treat: Share a Treat
Break the bark into larger chunks, setting aside some for yourself and pack the rest up into small gift boxes. I’m sure a friend would love a thoughtful piece of sweetness to their day.

- ½ package of Mint Dark Chocolate M & M's
- 3 cups chocolate melting wafers
- ¼ cups orange chocolate melting wafers
- 1 cup pretzels
- 9 Tombstone Shaped Chocolates (optional)
- 9 candy pumpkins
- 1 tbsp Halloween color candy sprinkles
- Line 8" X 11" pan with parchment paper.
- Coarsely crush the pretzel's and set aside.
- Melt semi-sweet chocolate wafers in a microwavable glass bowl at 30 second intervals until melted, stirring in between to avoid burning. Pour the melted chocolate onto the parchment, pick up the pan and tilt until the chocolate is spread evenly.
- Place tombstones, pumpkins and pretzels evenly around the chocolate before the chocolate starts to harden. Sprinkle candy sprinkles over the top.
- Melt the orange chocolate wafers in the same manner as the above step and drizzle in a back and forth pattern to make orange lines over the top. I put the melted orange chocolate into a sealable bag with the corner barely cut off to squirt over the top to make this easy.
- Let the chocolate completely hardened. I place mine in the freezer to harden faster.
- Once hard, break the chocolate bark into chunks by hand. Store in a sealed container in a cool place for about 1 week. Can be stored in the freezer.
