Candy Corn Cookie Bark

Candy Corn Bark

Fall is here. I can tell because my furnace has turned on and there is candy corn in the store!

I have a bit of a love affair with candy corn! I won’t tell you how many bags I have already bought! I am not sure what it is about candy corn other than it is so darn cute! I love the shape, the color, the size, the taste – I just love everything about it.

I was in Target today and they had the cutest little Halloween costume – it was a piece of candy corn. If there was someone at my house who I thought would fit into it or wear it I so would have bought it but I think it was a size 2 Toddler!

I collect candy corn recipes. Yes, I have a file folder totally devoted to recipes containing, shaped like or resembling candy corn!  One of my favorite candy corn recipes from last year was White Chocolate and Candy Corn Popcorn.

And there were those cute Candy Corn Shaped Rice Krispie treats!

Today’s recipe is one I printed  off last Halloween and never had a chance to share. I have been waiting an entire year to make Recipe Girl’s Candy Corn Cookie Bark!

Not only is it bright and colorful but it is yummy too!

The sweetness of the Oreos, white chocolate, and candy corn is a great combination with the saltiness of the pretzels.

The first step is to spread your broken up Oreos (I used the Halloween ones with the orange filling), pretzels and candy corn on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Melt your white chocolate (I prefer to use the round melting discs you can buy in the bulk food section.  I found them at Winco or  use Almond Bark) and pour over the top of the cookie mixture.  Spread with a spatula if needed to get it all covered.

I used my spatula to push the outer edges in toward the middle.

While the chocolate is still wet sprinkle remaining candy corn and brown and orange colored sprinkles over the top!

Let the chocolate set.  You may place in the refrigerator if needed.

Gently break bark into small pieces for serving and munching!

Candy Corn Cookie Bark

Ingredients

  • 14 whole Oreos, broken up. I used the Halloween ones with the orange filling but regular will work fine
  • 1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
  • 1 lb. white chocolate, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
  • 1 C candy corn
  • brown and orange colored sprinkles

Instructions

  • Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper
  • Spread broken cookes, pretzels and about 3/4 C of the candy corn onto the waxed paper
  • Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes
  • Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth
  • White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly
  • Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet
  • Do not let it harden
  • Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm
  • Remove and gently break bark into small pieces
  • Store in air tight container

    I am so excited to make this for Halloween this year! Not only does it sound delicious, but it is so pretty too! My 3 year old just saw the picture and said “I want to eat that for Halloween!”

    Halloween is my favorite holiday and I am always looking for fun and yummy recipes to make with a Halloween theme! We LOVE candy corn at our house too, so it is a must have every year!

    Thanks for sharing this great recipe (and the others too) Leigh Anne!

    I can personally confirm that this treat is sooo yummy and quite addictive. Thank you for the cute bag full Leigh Anne. I make myself tie the ribbon on the bag tightly so I am less tempted to eat the whole thing!

    Another great looking recipe… I love the orange polka-dot cup in the picture! It makes me want to look for some , especially for this time of year. How cute a presentation and the cookie bark looks delicious. Thanks for sharing!

    If this isn’t the epitome of halloween, then I don’t know what is!! All those goodies mixed together in all those Fall colors?!?!? Get out of here with that yumminess!!!!

    oriental trading has self-adhesive mini treat bags (5 1/2″) made in the candy corn colors – very cute! They also have a candy corn go-go dancer dress that I know you could make and look FABULOUS in!!

    This looks SO yummy, and even though I don’t have much of a candy corn addiction, I have many friends and relatives who do! And it looks so festive and pretty too! Thanks for sharing.

    Do you have any of that left over? I think I need a little taste to help me through the rest of the day.
    I am making this for sure!! So cute and yummy looking.
    I too love candy corn – kindred spirits. :)

    I love love love Candy Corn. And those pumpkin candies too. So yummy. I was at Super Walmart and they had flavored candy corn, (like Dulche de Leche, Apple Cider, Pumpkin Spice). I couldn’t bring myself to try any of them, one, because I just love the original candy corn so much and two, I was worried they would be yucky. Maybe next time, I will be daring enough to try them. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

    I just made this and it is SUPER yummy!! I think I used too much dry ingredients and not quite enough chocolate so it wasn’t nearly as pretty as yours but I’m determined to get it just right so that I can give it to my kids teachers all wrapped up pretty for Halloween. Thanks for the idea. Too cute!!

  10. says

    How much is shipping? I’d like to buy a batch. Okay fine, I’ve shown Scary Baby and she’s all over making it for a neighborhood party. ;)

    I love Fall too and especially candy corn but even thinking about turning the furnace on makes me sad!

  11. Michelle Payne says

    What a great recipe. I made this yesterday for a birthday party I was hosting for my BFF and of course it had to be a fall theme. Worked out perfectly and it was a huge hit.

  12. Dar Sommer says

    Thanks for this adorable idea…sending it to my grandson (hope it ships well). Giving it to new neighbors that just moved in, and sharing with co-workers! Hopefuly enough left for my family! (they always wonder if they’re on the list of recipients when I find a new idea!)

      It might be that you didn’t have enough of the white chocolate. The second time I made it I didn’t have as much white chocolate melts and it didn’t look as pretty! But it still tasted good!!!

  13. Trish Backlund says

    Love this! I just made some and it’s super yummy, super easy, and really cute!! :) Thanks so much for the recipe.

    I tried this recipe but used Wilton Candy Melts. The candy never melted to pouring consistency & was next to impossible to spread over the layer of candy corn, cookies, pretzels. It definitely did not end up looking pretty like yours!:( I guess I need to find a different white chocolate that melts to pouring stage.

    • says

      Debi,

      Try using almond bark next time. I use the chocolate melts that Winco sells in their bulk food and they work great. You can also try adding a little parafin wax to your chocolate to help thin it out and make it easier to pour.

  15. says

    Thank you for such a quick and easy recipe. I had to make a last minute snack for my first grader’s class tomorrow. This is perfect. Just waiting on it to cool so I can put it in baggies now.

    I made this last night and used a bag of the white chocolate melting disks. I think the bag is 14 oz. It was a stretch and the side that had less white chocolate required a little more spreading which made it look not as pretty. I think with the halloween oreos and sprinkles you could get away with not using the candy corn because that part of it is just over the top sweet! I’m not a huge fan of candy corn so maybe that’s why I found myself eating around the candy corn when I sampled it. The bites with candy corn were just too sweet for me. It’s a great festive recipe though! Quick and easy and fun for kids to help make as well.

  17. Christy says

    I made these & they were wonderful! I would have used more oreos- but I think that’s just becuase I am a huge oreo fan. I’m going to make these for Christmas too!

  18. Ellen says

    Leigh Anne–you and your cookie barks are too cute! Of course, every time you post your “new” version I have to turn around and make some! Guess that is why my waistline is changing…good thing there isn’t another holiday for a while.

  19. says

    This turned out great. I think next time I make it I will stir everything together in a big bowl, spread it onto waxed paper THEN spread it with a new layer of the white chocolate so it looks picture perfect and sticks together better. Great taste for sure though!

  20. D says

    These are delicious, but very sweet. I used two bags of white chocolate chips, and mine looked just like the picture. I also substituted some of the pretzles with kix cereal. Very very good!

  21. Terri Allen says

    Looks delish! I want to make this for the 4th of July, a week away. If I store the bark in a Tupperware like container, will it be good for next week?
    Thank you.

    I just found Smore’s candy corn at Target, do you think it would work for this recipe? Hmm??
