Halloween Fruit and Nut Chocolate Mummy Bark
How’s everyone’s October going? Do you know what you are going to be for Halloween yet? I recently picked up a purple wig at the store because I thought it looked cool and I like the color but I have no idea what I can be with it – any ideas?
Last year (see picture above, though Eric and I aren’t in costume), I was “Blueberry” from the cartoon Strawberry Shortcake and Eric was a “Hunter” character from the video game Destiny and M was a lion (that looked like a bear). This year she’s going to be a pumpkin (she was very decisive and chose that costume idea 2 months ago – not bad for a 2 1/2 year old!), Eric’s still deciding and well, me too!
Halloween Fruit and Nut Chocolate Mummy Bark has dark chocolate at the base, a layer of raisins, dried cranberries, slivered almonds (can substitute whole or chopped), candy sugar eyes and it’s drizzled with white chocolate on top.
I wanted to do a chocolate bark recipe for Life’s Little Sweets for a while because it’s the type of recipe the fits in with my no fuss, yet totally fun, sweet & delicious ethos that I often have with recipes on this blog. This Halloween Fruit and Nut Chocolate Mummy Bark can be customized for any season, just swap out the fruit/flavors, type of chocolate and decorations.
If you need a larger amount than the 13″ x 9″ pan that this recipe yields, just double the recipe and use a whole cookie sheet!
This would make a cute teacher’s gift, Halloween party favor or served at a Halloween gathering!
- 12 oz . dark chocolate
- 12 oz . white chocolate
- 1/2 cup almonds, , slivered, chopped or whole
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries

- Place candy eyes carefully in the melted chocolate.
- Melt white chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between until melted.
