Boo! Who’s hungry? We are almost unable to handle the cuteness of this colorful ghost candy bark. And it’s so easy to make, you literally can’t mess it up.

Ghost Bark

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • White, purple and black candy melts
  • Spoon
  • Piping bag
  • Skewer
  • Black sprinkles and black sugar
  • Black candy pearls
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie sheet
  • Instructions

    1. Melt and Pour

    Melt the purple and white candy melts separately. Pour the purple candy melts onto a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper and spread in an even layer.

    Once your purple base evenly fills the cookie sheet, spoon globs of white candy melts across the top. These are going to be your ghosties.

    2. Shape the Ghosts

    shaping ghost bark

    Use a skewer to shape your ghost globs. It’s super easy to give your ghosts shape by making a little tail and two arms. Make sure not to reach your skewer too far down, or you’ll disturb the purple base and discolor your ghosts.

    Pro Tip: Wipe off your skewer after each ghost to make sure the colors don’t get mixed.

    3. Add the Final Details

    Add two black candy pearls to each ghost for eyes, and decorate the purple negative space by carefully scattering black sugar and sprinkles. As the bark begins to cool and solidify, go ahead and melt your black candy melts. Put that melty goodness in a piping bag and pipe little ovals for the ghoulish mouths.

    4. Break It Up and Dig In!

    Once the candy bark has cooled, break each ghost into its own separate piece (this doesn’t have to be perfect!) and share.

      Where are the amounts/weights required for the ingredients? I need to make at least 30 ghosts so probably 2 cookie sheets?.( I can’t see where it says how many it makes)
