Chocolate Candy Bar Bark

Need an easy to make holiday candy? Candy Bar Bark only uses a couple of ingredients and everyone loves it! 

Candy Bar Bark

I love making chocolate barks for the holidays. They are quick and easy and everyone loves them. 

They also make great food gifts. All you have to do is place several different kinds of bark in a festive container or bag, and it will be a food gift that anyone is sure to enjoy.

Candy Bar Bark Recipe

Every year I make several bark type recipes because they are so easy. I have made Peppermint Bark, Oreo Cookie Bark, Raspberry Bark, Pretzel Bark, and Tiger Bark. We love them all. 

The Candy Bar Bark recipe I am sharing today is another favorite that we have been making for years. 

We have made this twice already this year to give away for food gifts. 

Candy Bar Bark

The first time I made this I thought about calling it Chocolate M&M Bark, but I realized this really would work with any candy.

You could use mint M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces,  etc. I think the options are endless of what you can do with this, just use the candy that your family enjoys.

Candy Bar Bark is an easy make homemade treat that only uses three ingredient.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl melt chocolate chips in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  2. In another small bowl melt white chocolate in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  3. Drop melted chocolate on a cookie sheet or pan that has been lined with parchment paper. I use my silpat mat and it works great.
  4. Drop melted white chocolate next to melted chocolate and take a knife or spoon and swirl chocolates together.
  5. Sprinkle M&M’s or crushed candy bar on top. Take a spoon and carefully press candy into the chocolate.
  6. Place in refrigerator until firm and then break into pieces to serve.

  1. Looks wonderful and easy enough for kids to help with. Question…Do you use milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet?

  2. Mmm, I think I’m going to do half with M&M’s and half with candy canes. I will have to check out your other barks too. I have a silpat. Looks like I can use it for this!

  3. So colorful and festive – looks delicious!

  4. I am getting ready to make this and noticed there is a difference in the peppermint bark recipe and this one. The peppermint bark recipe calls for whipping cream. What does that do (perhaps makes it creamier?) and is it necessary?

    • Yes, it gives the chocolate a little different texture, but you could leave it out and just do a basic melted chocolate and it will work fine. I hope that helps.
