After Jackson got in a better mood, I decided to embark on Halloween Bark. You'll never guess where I found the idea! Pretty easy, got a 5 different colors of Wilton's Candies from Michael's. Melted them in the microwave. then I lined cookie sheets with wax paper, put half of each color on one and half on the other. I just spread them in messy columns with the back of a spoon. Then I gave each boy a skewer and had them start drawing in the candy to create a tie-dyed look. (we're making this for our Tie Dye Halloween party on Saturday)
Then I gave each boy some M&Ms, some pumpkin sprinkles that i found at Michael's and some fruit and nut trail mix blend to sprinkle over their mixed up mess. I included the nut mix because i felt that just candy was too sweet and it called for something salty.
I placed the sheets in my freezer and walked away. Half an hour later, pulled them out and ta-da!
Then we just broke it up in to pieces and put them in a box, separating the layers with wax paper. I think they came out pretty cool and not too thick, either!
