I have my degree in Computer Science and before I had kids I worked for a forensic software company. Basically our software could take any computer and find deleted emails, Internet searches, stuff deleted from your recycle bin, and anything you’ve ever done or looked at on your computer; it’s all still recoverable on the hard drive in the free space or MFT. We also developed software that could crack passwords for almost any program.We worked hand in hand with the FBI and Secret Service on cases. Every day at work was fascinating for me especially since I’m so nosy interested in people’s lives.

My work helped me in my real life when I would lose a document or forget a password. It got a little sketchy when I had friends wanting me to analyze their husband’s computers to see if they were up to mischief – something I quickly vowed not to dabble in. Talk about opening up Pandora’s Box. With the passing of Steve Jobs, a pioneer in the software world, it got me thinking how lucky I am. This food blog has been a happy marriage of my two loves – programming and food. I get to blog about food and use my programming skills as well. I can get behind the code of the blog, adding and tweaking things when I want.Candy Corn Halloween Bark - delicious and festive.

Every year I fill this glass pumpkin up with candy corn. It takes 2 1/2 bags of candy corn to initially fill it. Can you guess how many times I have to refill it before Halloween is here? Believe it or not, I actually leave it alone for the most part. But anyone who comes over to our house takes a handful here and there and it slowly whittles its way down. I did steal a cup of it for this candy corn bark.Candy Corn Halloween Bark - delicious and festive. I love this bark! the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

This candy corn bark is super sweet and decadent just like any Halloween treat should be. White chocolate and pretzels were meant to be together. Then we all know how much I love Oreos. This is a quick and easy treat that packages up well as gifts or snacks. It’s really rich so you’ll only need a bite or two.

Halloween Candy Corn Cookie Bark

Ingredients

  • 14 whole Oreos , broken up (use Halloween Oreos if you can find them)
  • 1 1/2 cups pretzels - any shape , broken into pieces
  • 16 ounces almond bark or white chocolate melts
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • brown and orange colored sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 cup of the candy corn onto the prepared cookie sheet in a 9x13 shape. Place almond bark in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  2. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly. It may seem like it's not enough but just try to evenly spread it. The ratio of chocolate to toppings will be off if you add more almond bark/white chocolate. Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the almond bark/white 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 - it's really rich. Makes around 20-24 pieces. Store in air tight container.
