Halloween recipes have always caught my attention. They are so cute, festive and bring out those childhood feelings of excitement. I am all about easy Halloween treats and have shared quite a few DIY Halloween treats on my blog. This one came about when I found a bag of bulk store candy in my cupboard.

You know what the problem with the Bulk store is??? They have so many awesome things and when you scoop them into those plastic bags, you just don't know how much you are putting in there. I always try to get just enough for what ever recipe I'm planning on making, but it never works. I'm always left with bags of candies, sprinkles, nuts and chocolate melts. That's exactly what I found in my cupboard the other day. I huge Bulk Barn bag, full of chocolates and Halloween candies. So, I decided to use them all (well most of them) and make some Halloween Bark.

Chocolate barks are so easy and you can make any imaginable flavour combination. In my version today, milk chocolate is drizzled with while and coloured chocolates, then topped with Reese's Pieces, Candy Corn (I had a few so I used them), candy eye balls and Gummy Worms. Frightfully delicious, the kids are just devouring this. This would be a great special treat to give to the little trick or treat-ers in your family, or even as a school Halloween party treat!




Halloween Bark

1 1/2 C milk chocolate melts
1/2 C each white, orange and green chocolate melts
candy corn (optional)
Reese's Pieces
gummy worms
candy eye balls (optional)

Place chocolate melts in separate bowls. Heat each bowl,  in microwave, for 90 seconds; stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slowly pour melted milk chocolate onto parchment paper, trying to spread it out, evenly. Put remaining 3 melted chocolates into separate zip top bags. Cut a small hole in one end of each zip top bag, and drizzle white, green and orange chocolate over the milk chocolate. Sprinkle with candies and gently press into chocolate. Place in freezer to set, about 30-45 minutes. To break, grab both ends of the parchment paper, and drop it onto your kitchen counter. The chocolate should break into pieces.

  1. Good idea to use leftover candy to create candy bark! I will have to see if I have any candy in the pantry so I can make something similar :)

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
