An easy Halloween treat!

It’s no secret: I love Halloween! My boys will tell you it’s their favorite holiday, too (“after Christmas of course” they’d say)! One of our favorite things to do is make easy Halloween treats– and Mummy Bark is one of the simplest! It takes a bit of patience as the chocolate hardens, but it’s well worth the wait.

It’s sweet, crunchy and has so many different notes of flavor, starting with the rich chocolate cookies and the two types of chocolate — milk chocolate and white chocolate. This treat reminds me of Hershey’s® Cookies and Cream candy bars with a bit more of a chocolate-y flavor.

How to make Mummy Bark

  • Crush chocolate sandwich cookies by putting them in a plastic bag, sealing the bag, and using a meat mallet(or rolling pin, or the handle of a chef’s knife) to coarsely break down the cookies. No need to remove the cream layer from the cookies first.
  • Melt milk chocolate chips until smooth and then stir in the cookies until well coated.
  • Spread the chocolate cookie bark on a lined sheet pan and place in the fridge to harden.
  • Melt white chocolate chips until smooth and melted. We separate the batch here; most of the melted white chocolate gets smoothed over the milk chocolate layer. The rest will get drizzled on top of the eyes.
  • Add edible eyes however and wherever you’d like. Get creative here!
  • Drizzle remaining white chocolate all over the bark similar to a mummy’s bandages. 
  • Let the bark harden, coarsely chop or break it, and enjoy!

Chocolate melting tips

  • Using high-quality chocolate chips for a better melt and a richer taste. My favorite is Ghirardelli® or Guittard® (not sponsored).
  • Microwave chocolate chips in sturdy, microwavesafe (glass) bowls instead of using plastic or melamine. 
  • To avoid burned chocolate chips, microwave the chips for 30 seconds at a time, and stir it for at least 20-25 seconds between each microwave burst. Remember the chocolate is still melting even after it has been removed from the microwave. 
  • White chocolate hardens very quickly so work fast when pressing the edible eyes into the bark. You may need to re-microwave the white chocolate that was set aside if it has hardened while the eyes were being added to the bark.

QUICK TIP

Be careful when melting chocolate. If a drop of water gets in it, it may seize–get hard and grainy. If it’s overheated, it may turn cloudy and sticky. Going slowly and gradually is the best way to prevent ruined chocolate!

Mummy Bark tips

  • Line the pan with parchment paper, wax paper or even foil in a pinch. This makes for easy and clean removal of the bark.
  • I recommend using a 9×13-inch sheet pan or baking pan for this bark; you want the base layer to be about 1/4th inch thick.
  • Adding the white chocolate re-melts the bottom chocolate layer a bit; if it’s spread too quickly, the two colors will blend and swirl together. To avoid this, spread the white chocolate slowly and patiently. If the two chocolates do begin to swirl together, switch to a new spoon to keep the colors separate.
  • Pipe the leftover white chocolate through a small bag for the best results. I like piping the melted white chocolate over the bark as opposed to spooning the chocolate over the bark. I find it creates a cleaner, sharper look.

Let’s talk edible eyes

Edible eye candies have become increasingly popular over the years. They can be found at craft/hobby stores, most larger chain grocery stores, and online!

I like getting edible eye candies in a variety of sizes for Mummy Bark. Here is the exact kit I use.

Equipment

  • Parchment paper
  • 9 x 13-inch sheet pan

Ingredients

  • 12 Oreo cookies or other chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 bag (11.5 oz; 326g) milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet chocolate if you prefer less sweet)
  • 1 bag (11 oz; 312g) white chocolate chips divided
  • Assortment of candy/edible eyeballs (See Note 1)

Instructions

  • PREP: Line a 9-x-13-inch baking sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • OREOS: Add the Oreos (no need to remove the cream filling) to a plastic bag, seal the bag and press out extra air. Use a rolling pin, meat mallet, or handle of a chef's knife to coarsely break the cookies into smaller chunks.
  • MILK CHOCOLATE: Melt milk chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring between each burst for 15-20 seconds, until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Stir in the coarsely broken cookies until combined.
  • SPREAD CHOCOLATE: With a spatula, spread the chocolate and cookie mixture onto the prepared pan in an even 1/4-inch thick layer. Place in the fridge to harden.
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE: Melt the white chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring between each microwave burst for 15-20 seconds, until the chocolate is smooth. Remove about 1/4 cup of the melted white chocolate and transfer to a small plastic bag and set aside. Gently spread the remaining melted white chocolate on top of the milk chocolate, using the back of a spoon. If the two chocolates begin swirling together, swap out for a new spoon to keep the colors separate. Immediately top the white chocolate with edible eyes (work quickly -- white chocolate hardens fast!)
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE: Cut the tip off the plastic bag with the remaining white chocolate. Drizzle remaining white chocolate on top of the bark to resemble mummy bandages.
  • CHILL: Chill for 30 minutes or until firmly set up. Then coarsely chop or break into bark. Enjoy! If the chocolate is getting melty or soft, return to the fridge to firm up a bit.
