I am so excited that Wilton came out with "black" vanilla chips! I thought they would be great for a spooky bark. I won't bore you with the how to's - you know how to melt chocolate. I melted regular white chocolate chips, melted black ones, swirled them together and then sprinkled them with chopped pretzels and some candy corn to get us into the spirit. You can add whatever seasonal candy or sprinkles that strike your fancy. These would also make a cute teacher gift. Love em.
