  1. Cut off pieces from your orange gummy candies, and set aside to use as beaks.
  2. To prepare cookies, in a large mixing bowl, beat together cake mix, eggs, and shortening until well blended.
  3. Add yellow food coloring if you want the yellow color of the chicks to be brighter.
  4. For each chick, roll two balls of dough. One ball should be about 1½ inches, and the other should be about ¾ inches.

Halloween Candy Bark

Wondering what to do with all that extra Halloween candy? This Halloween Candy Bark is a great way to use up leftover trick or treat sweets.

We used candy corn, mini Kit Kats, M&Ms, and candy googly eyes in ours, but you can try using pretzels, chopped nuts, gummies, sprinkles or chopped chocolate bars. Your kids will love eating this delicious sweet treat (and you will too!).


  • 3 cups bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups assorted candy, cut into bite size pieces (we used candy corn, M&Ms, mini Kit Kats and candy googly eyes)


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring until smooth.
  3. Pour the chocolate onto the parchment paper, and using a spatula, spread it into an even layer about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped candy on top of the chocolate and place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for 30-45 minutes until the chocolate is fully hardened.
  5. Remove the bark from the refrigerator and carefully slide it onto a cutting board.
  6. Cut the bark into irregularly shaped pieces. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container in a cool place.
