Aine Handmade Chocolate Halloween Chocolate Bark
- Edible black pen
- 400 g(14oz) dark chocolate
- 100 g(3 ½oz) white chocolate
- Small chocolate round sprinkles
- 12gummy teeth
- Orange, green, yellow and brown sweets (we used a mixture of MnMs, Peanut MnMs, jellybeans, Reese’s pieces, smarties)
- 24mini marshmallows
Line a large baking tin with parchment paper. Begin by making the marshmallow monster eyes, use the black pen to draw little pupils in the middle of the marshmallows, then set aside to dry.
Melt the dark chocolate and the white chocolate separately. Pour the dark chocolate into the tin to a rough 25.5 x 28cm (10 x 11in) rectangle. Drop spoonfuls of the white chocolate onto the dark chocolate, and use the back of a teaspoon to make ghost shapes. Use the chocolate sprinkles to make eyes and a mouth on each of the ghosts.
Place the marshmallow eyes in pairs around the chocolate, and place the gummy teeth underneath to make a monster. Sprinkle the remaining sweets around the chocolate. Leave to set before cutting into shards.
