HAPPY FRIDAY! You’ve almost made it to the weekend! Yay!
Some weekends are made for productivity, for going out and raking that lawn, doing that laundry, running those errands, cleaning the ENTIRE house, and just generally rocking your home life. And some weekends just… aren’t. They’re made for pajamas, good books, and lazy days. Personally, I’ve been in the latter mood lately.
Although I’d LOVE to have a spotless house, be totally caught up on the laundry, have a fancy-shmancy meal in the oven every night, be miles ahead on my blog posts, and look presentable enough to go out in public every day, this has definitely been more of a “If it requires pants and a bra, I’m out” sort of week.
Bring on the pajama pants and baggy sweaters!
Which brings me to this dessert. This is the “no pants, no bra necessary” dessert of the Halloween desserts. It’s quick, it’s easy, it doesn’t require any fancy tools or techniques, and it won’t judge you if you make it in your pajamas.
- 6 bars dark chocolate
- 3 bars white chocolate
- Assorted sprinkles (optional)
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt 3 bars of dark chocolate using 10 second increments and stirring between each heating. Line an 8" x 8" baking dish with plastic wrap, and spread your melted dark chocolate evening over the surface. If you'd like to add any candy or cookie pieces to give your candy bark a little something extra, now would be the time to do that. Refrigerate the dark chocolate until hard.
- In another microwave safe bowl, heat 2 bars of white chocolate, and spread it over your first layer of chocolate. Refrigerate again until the white chocolate has hardened.
- Melt the final 3 bars of dark chocolate and 1 bar of white chocolate in two separate bowls. Spoon a little bit of the dark chocolate into a piping bag, and spread the rest over the hardened candy bark. Spoon all of the white chocolate into a piping bag. While the final layer of chocolate is still warm, start creating ghosts by piping circles of white chocolate. Using a pointy object like a toothpick or a meat thermometer, draw one end of each circle out to create a tail. Using the dark chocolate in the piping bag, add eyes and mouths. Add some festive sprinkles or leave the top as it is!
