This Ghoulishly Good Halloween Bark Is the Only Sweet Treat You’ll Want This Halloween

There really isn’t anything I don’t love about Halloween. It’s been my favorite holiday since I was just a couple of years old and now, even as an adult, I still go all out. Come September 1st, I transform my home into a real-life haunted house with just about every inch of space decorated for my favorite holiday.  I’ve even garnered the coveted title of creepiest house on the block due to the extensive mini haunted house I create on my front lawn. But even someone who loves Halloween as much as I can’t deny that the real star of the show is the candy. Without candy, there would be no trick or treating and without trick or treating, Halloween would not be the holiday we know and love. So this year, why not make some of the ghoulishly good candy you’ve ever seen (and tasted!)? This Halloween bark candy is easy enough for kids to make and delicious enough for adults to enjoy. Here’s how to. make it.
