HERSHEY'S Halloween Spider Bark
Author: Nikki
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening, divided
  • 6 HERSHEY'S KISSES Chocolates, unwrapped
  • 12 small eyeball sprinkles
  • 1 strand TWIZZLERS Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy
  • ½ cup HERSHEY'S White Chocolate Chips
  • 10 large eyeball sprinkles
  • Assortment of Halloween sprinkles
  1. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet and set aside.
  2. Use one TWIZZLERS Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy strand and pull each strip apart. Cut each strip into ¼ to ½ inch pieces. Set aside.
  3. In a medium microwave safe bowl, combine HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips and 1 ½ teaspoons of shortening and heat in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment until melted and smooth.
  4. Using a skewer, or something else with a similar shape, dab a bit of melted chocolate on the end and place a couple small dots next to each other on an unwrapped HERSHEY'S KISS. Quickly and carefully place a small eyeball sprinkle onto each dot and hold for a couple seconds until it stays in place. Repeat for each unwrapped HERSHEY'S KISSand set aside to allow to set.
  5. Pour your bowl of melted HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips onto the center of the parchment paper and carefully spread melted chocolate into a rectangular shape.
  6. Next, in a small microwave safe bowl, combine HERSHEY'S White Chocolate Chips and ½ teaspoon of shortening and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each increment until chocolate is smooth and melted.
  7. Drizzle melted white chocolate over the bark in five random groups of drizzles in scattered sections. These are going to be your “mummy heads”. It is okay if your drizzles are perfect because that is how the bandages of mummies look. In fact the more imperfect the better. Place two large eye balls in each of the white chocolate drizzles for the mummy’s eyes.
  8. Next drop the HERSHEY'S KISSES Chocolate “Spider heads” randomly over the top of the bark, avoiding mummy heads when possible.
  9. Place eight of the prepared TWIZZLERS Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy “Spider legs” around each head, four on each side.
  10. Sprinkle with an assortment of Halloween sprinkles.
  11. Put cookie sheet in freezer until bark is hard and frozen and easy to break apart. Once frozen, break bark into random sizes and shapes. Sometimes it is easier to let the bark semi-harden in room temperature, score the bark with a knife first, and then place it in the freezer. It can make it easier to break apart with pre-made score marks.
