Monster Chocolate Bark
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1.25 lbs bark
  • 4 oz purple candy coating
  • 2 oz white candy coating
  • 2 oz red candy coating
  • 1 tsp shortening
  • 12 oz chocolate candy coating
  • Large candy eyeballs
  1. Cover a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. Place the purple candy coating in a medium bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating.
  2. Scrape the purple coating out onto the prepared baking sheet and smooth it into a thin layer, less than ¼-inch thick. Let it sit for a moment, and once it just starts to thicken, take a fork and start tapping the top of the bark. The tines of the fork should grab the coating and pull it up into small spikes. If the coating immediately loses its shape, let it sit for a few more minutes until it is a little thicker, then try again. Tap the fork all over the top of the bark to give the purple coating a spiky texture like monster fur. Refrigerate the tray for 10 minutes to set the coating, then break it into uneven pieces by hand.
  3. Cover a baking sheet with parchment again. Place the white coating in a small bowl, and microwave until melted. Transfer the melted coating to a piping bag, paper cone, or just a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner. Pipe small triangles out onto the parchment, and use a toothpick to drag out the tip a little bit so they look like monster fangs. You’ll probably use 12-15 fangs, but make a few extra in case some of them break. Refrigerate until set.
  4. Combine the red candy coating and the shortening, and melt in the microwave. Stir until smooth and fluid. Dip the tips of each fang into the red coating, and place back on the baking sheet. Refrigerate briefly.
  5. Melt the chocolate candy coating in the microwave. Cover one last baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper. Pour the chocolate coating out onto the sheet and spread it into an even layer, about ¼-inch thick.
  6. Take the red coating, and drizzle and flick it all over the chocolate in a random pattern, so that it looks like blood splatters. If it doesn’t flow freely, warm it up again in the microwave, and stir in more shortening if necessary so it’s fluid.
  7. Place the purple monster fur pieces, bloody fangs, and candy eyeballs all over the bark in a random pattern. Make sure to press the fur down firmly to embed it in the chocolate and make it seem like it’s breaking through. Once your bark is finished, refrigerate it for 15-20 minutes until totally set.
  8. Break or cut it into small pieces, and serve!
