Ghastly Ghouls Chocolate Bark


  • 400 grams dark chocolate melts
  • 150 grams white chocolate melts
  • A handful of orange and green M&M’s
  • Orange 100 & 100’s
  • 2 licorice all sorts ( orange & green )


  • Put the white chocolate in a microwave- safe bowl and set aside
  • Put the 400 grams of dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts
  • Stir to make sure it is all melted and smooth
  • Line a cookie sheet with baking paper
  • Spread the chocolate out evenly onto the tray (approx ½ centimetre thick) using a spatula
  • Leave a tiny bit in the bowl for decoration
  • Push in about half of the M&M’s leaving enough room between them for the ghouls
  • Sprinkle the orange 100 & 1000’s all around the edge
  • Melt the white chocolate in 20 second bursts
  • Working quickly use a teaspoon to make a dollop of white chocolate onto the chocolate already spread on the tray
  • Use a toothpick or the end of a teaspoon to spread the white chocolate into a ghoul shape
  • Use the toothpick to dip into the remaining dark chocolate and make 2 dots for eyes and a bigger one for a mouth
  • Thinly sliced the licorice all sorts and push them into the melted chocolate
  • Push the rest of the M&M’s into the chocolate
  • And sprinkle with some more orange 100 & 1000’s
  • Put into the fridge to set for at least an hour
  • Cut into large chunks with a sharp knife

Ghastly Ghouls Chocolate Bark

The nitty gritty:

  • Takes about 10 mins to make and 1hr to set properly
  • Prep all the toppings before you melt the chocolate
  • The white chocolate sets quickly. A fast ghoul is a good ghoul
