If you’re looking for an easy sweet treat to make this fall, try this Candy Corn Cookie Bark.
Only 5 ingredients are needed to make Candy Corn Cookie Bark:
- Candy Corn (or if you don’t care for the stuff, you can sub Reeses Pieces or M&M’s)
- White chocolate wafers (don’t even think of trying to use the little white chocolate chips… they don’t melt and you’ll have a big chunky unmelted chocolate mess on your hands). You can get these at a baking store, or you can get the Wilton’s brand candy melts at craft stores (like Michael’s).
- Orange & brown sprinkles (or Halloween M&M’s!)
You’ll sprinkle the goodies onto some waxed paper, then pour the melted chocolate on top and add sprinkles. Chill until hardened, and then you can take it out and pick up the whole thing like one giant piece of cookie bark. Gently break it apart into small pieces for serving. So easy to make!
