Hi Everyone - another candy post today! I mentioned previously it's pretty hard to get Halloween stuff here in New Zealand, so I made this Halloween Bark using some easily available lollies and white chocolate.
Skulls, Tombstones and Bats!
In reality this is just some halved orange flavored jelly filled lollies, some white chocolate skulls and some licorice twists cut into slices to look like bats!
Help Me - I'm Melting!
More skulls here along with some blue and red tic-tacs and black and orange jaffas. Check out my tutorial on how to make Custom Colored Candies here.
Free for All!
For these ones I threw on all the little pieces of candy I could find! Chopped up liquorice lace and red liquorice sticks, coloured tic-tacs , crushed barley sugar and then I drizzled a little orange colored chocolate on top.
Remember you MUST USE powdered food coloring when you color white chocolate - or you will just have a gooey mess. Very edible but not aesthetically pleasing.
For all of these - just melt your white chocolate, spread onto greaseproof paper and throw your toppings on. I melt mine in the microwave. 1 large bar takes 2 blasts of a minute each BUT I urge you to experiment as it is possible to scorch the chocolate.
Please post a comment with any questions
