We have a fun party idea that your ghoulish guests will love. We're making Barf Bark -- a sickeningly sweet and tasty Halloween treat.

Barf Bark gives a whole new meaning to the idea of a "gag" gift. It's a great gross-out treat for any Halloween gathering, and kids will love both the ick factor and the taste.

What you'll need:

  • 1 baking sheet
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Parchment paper
  • One 12-ounce bag orange candy melting wafers
  • One 12-ounce bag white candy melting wafers
  • 1 cup assorted candy mix-ins (we used candy corn, gummy bears, hard fruit-shaped candies and yellow candy laces cut into 2-inch pieces)
  • Air-sickness bags, optional, for serving

Spray a baking sheet lightly with nonstick cooking spray, then line it with parchment. Next, in a microwave-safe bowl, mix together the orange and white candy melting wafers. Microwave at 50% power in 30-second increments, stirring in between each, until fully melted. (Alternatively, melt them over a double boiler.) Once the mixture is fully smooth, pour it out onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and use an offset spatula to spread it out into a "splat" shape; work fairly quickly so the mixture doesn't solidify before you form the desired shape.

Next, it's time to add an assortment of Halloween candies. We used candy corn, gummy bears, hard fruit-shaped candies and yellow candy laces cut into 2-inch pieces. Sprinkle on the candies and lightly press them into the melted candy "splat." Allow the bark to cool fully in the fridge for about 1 hour.

Display the Barf Bark whole, and when you're ready to eat it, break it up into large shards. Send some pieces home in silly air-sickness bags.
