Christmas bark

Author Angie Holden

What You Will Need

  • 12 oz package of Wilton chocolate candy melts
  • Red M&M candies or red Sixlet candies
  • Large pretzel twists
  • Large candy eyes
  • Wax paper
  • Baking sheet


  • Line a large baking sheet with wax paper.  Pour the 12 oz package of candy melts into a microwave-safe dish. Follow the package instructions to melt them in the microwave.  Then pour the melted chocolate out on the prepared baking sheet and use a large spoon or spatula to spread the chocolate to about 1/4" thick.
  • Once the chocolate is spread out, use the large candy eyes, red M&M and 2 pretzel twist halves to form 'reindeer' in the melted chocolate.
  • You can add as many of these reindeer as you would like to your chocolate.  Then allow the chocolate to fully set.
  • Once hardened, break your Christmas bark into large chunks that are perfect for eating.
