Candy Corn Bark & A Giveaway {Giveaway Closed}

I read an article recently about how people don't really like candy corn anymore.

Apparently, candy corn is an outdated Halloween treat and many people don't think it should still be around.

Reading this made me start doing a poll among my family and friends.

The results did not make me happy. I found more people dislike candy corn than like it.

I LOVE candy corn.

I look forward to enjoying it every year.

I can't get enough of the stuff!

And the pumpkins??? The pumpkins are just plain heaven.

When I grabbed a Halloween treat magazine while I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago (yes, I am a total impulse shopper) I knew that I had to make this candy corn bark immediately!!

And guess what! Those people who "don't like candy corn" sure didn't turn their noses up at this bark.

I even bought the stuff to make it again when I went grocery shopping a couple days ago.

I must warn you though, this stuff is addicting!

So make it at your own risk!

Let me show you how stinking easy it is to make:

Throw your almond bark in a microwave safe bowl and microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth.

Stir in the candy corn.

Stir in the pretzel pieces.

Spread the mixture over your prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle more candy corn on top and press down into the bark a bit. Let cool for an hour or more. Break into pieces.

Serve and enjoy!!
