Halloween-themed candy bark that takes five minutes to prepare and tastes sinfully delicious? Yes PLEASE.

All you have to do is melt some chocolate, add your favorite candy into it, and refrigerate it for about an hour to make a simple, sugar-filled bark. It's a fun and different way to eat Halloween candy.

The nice thing about this bark is that you can tailor it to your dietary restrictions. Make it gluten-free by using certified gluten-free chocolate and candy (so leave out the Oreos and swap the pretzel M&M's for crushed gluten-free pretzels).

Make it vegan by using vegan chocolate chips, non-dairy milk, and your favorite vegan halloween candies. No Whey Chocolate makes vegan versions of pretzel M&M's and Reese's pieces called NoNo's that you can order online and use instead of the originals. 

There's no reason not to make this chocolatey treat. It's so simple that even the laziest college student can make it. Plus, you can snack on the candy as you make it.

Gift everyone you know, from your friends to your arch-enemy, this treat instead of a trick
