HALLOWEEN CANDY BARK
1 package of vanilla or chocolate almond bark
1 cup orange candy melts
Optional toppings: Candy corn, crushed OREO’s, Candy eyeballs, crushed pretzels, M&M’s, sprinkles, nuts, any other leftover Halloween candy
Lay out a large sheet of wax paper and get all of your toppings ready.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave according to package directions. Then pour chocolate onto wax paper. Smooth with a spatula.
Melt orange melts in the microwave according to package directions. Place spoonfuls onto the chocolate and then swirl with a toothpick.
Top with your toppings immediately. Let cool and then break into pieces or cut with a large knife.
White Cake Mix
First mix up a batch of brownies. We used Ghiradelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix.
Second, mix up a box of White Cake Mix and color it with orange food coloring.
Add a spoonful of brownie mix to the cupcake liners. The brownie batter should only go about 1/3 of the way up the cupcake liner. You want more cake batter than brownie batter.
Then cover the brownie batter with the orange cake batter. Bake the cupcakes as you normally would, 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Add Buttercream frosting to top your Brownie Cupcakes. You can use a decorating Tip to swirl on the frosting.
We topped our Brownie Cupcakes for Halloween with some Orange and Black sprinkles.
Make sure the cupcakes are completely cool before you remove the liner.
Don’t remove the liner until right before you are ready to serve the Brownie Cupcakes, the cake will dry out if you take off the liner too soon.
To remove the liners, first, pull down the sides of the cupcake liner but leave the flat bottom portion on. Flatten down the sides of the cupcake liner and then gently roll the liner off the bottom of the cupcake while you hold the cupcake with your other hand.
