Halloween Pumpkin Bark (Barf?)

Pumpkin Bark
Nope, there's no pumpkin in this candy bark, but there's lots of Halloween candy and other goodies...all spilling out of the pumpkin. 

Just carve a craft pumpkin (buy one of these at the craft store) into a barfing pumpkin face and serve.   Happy Halloween!
  • 2 lbs. white chocolate
  • 1 c. or more M&Ms - Halloween ones!
  • 1/2 c. Craisins
  • 2 c. candy corn
  • 1 1/2 c. broken small pretzels - use gluten-free pretzels to make this gf
  • 1/2 c. cashews
  • Plus extra of all of the above to sprinkle on afterward
Spray 2 cookie sheets (with rims!) with Pam and scatter all of the above ingredients (except white chocolate) evenly across each cookie sheet.  Melt white chocolate according to package directions. 

Once the chocolate is melted, pour it evenly over the contents of both cookie sheets.  Using a small plastic bag, insert your hand into it and butter the palm of your hand on the outside of the bag.  Moving quickly, spread the chocolate over the stuff on the pans - using more Pam, if necessary.

Once the mixture is spread out well, sprinkle with additional candy, craisins, pretzels and cashews and press lightly into the still soft chocolate.  Let sit until the candy is completely set and cooled.  Break up into pieces to serve.  Store in sealable plastic bag.

Note:  To make this gluten-free (and I do!) check all your ingredients to be sure all candy, chocolate and pretzels are GF.  And enjoy!
