Halloween Bark...

Thank-you Lowri for featuring your Halloween Bark on Echo Park's Blog.  It was the perfect treat to make for my Physical Therapists for Halloween=) 
I like how these little tags for the treat bags turned out.  It's the first time I've made tags like thess.  I stamped Three Houses on Very Vanilla with Memento Ink.  I lined the inside of the house with my C0 copic then went over it with a glitter pen.  I outlined the house with a glaze pen and used stickles for the windows.  Prismacolor Pencils and OMS for the ground and highlights around the house.  Tim Holtz Distress Inks around the edges.  I stamped Friendly Ghost in Very Vanilla, used a glitter and glaze pen, cut him out and popped him up on pot dots.  Sentiment from Verve Stamps, Happy Fall.  I used a knotch punch for the top of the tag and a corner rounder at the bottom.  One inch circle punch and Denami Design Ribbon.

 The Halloween Bark was simple to make.  You can take what ever ingredients you want to put in the bark, I chose black licorice and halloween sprinkles.  I cut up the black licorice into small pieces.  

 I took three boxes of Baker's White Chocolate Squares and microwaved it in a glass bowl for 1 minute.  I stirred the chocolate then microwaved for 30 seconds, stirred then microwaved for 10 more seconds.
I spread the melted chocolate in a wax paper lined 13x9 pan. 
 I sprinkled the black licorice over the melted chocolate.
 Then I sprinkled the Halloween Sprinkles over the melted chocolate.
I put the chocolate in the refrigerator to harden.  Then broke them into pieces.
I had to give it a try before I gave it to my Physical Therapists tomorrow and it's actually pretty good.  But I happen to like white chocolate and black licorice...never thought I'd put the two together, but it is yummy!

Thank-you for stopping by.  Hope ya'll have a Happy Halloween tomorrow!
