Foodie Friday ~ Mystery Ingredient Club!

Happy Foodie Friday featuring our Mystery Ingredient hosted
by Michael Lee West at Rattlebridge Farm.

Michael generously sent each of the Mystery Ingredient Club
participants Wilton's Creepy Sprinkle Lab:


4 vials filled with assorted sprinkles in a lab stand!

Oh, the possibilities are endless~
I decided upon Bark Candy with a Halloween theme.

I built the bark layers upon cinnamon graham crackers,
then spread melted white chocolate over the crackers
and sprinkled with peanut butter-filled pretzels, Marcona
salted almonds, mini-dark chocolate morsels, M & M candies,
and the Wilton Sprinkles.


If you assemble the layers in a shallow sheet pan, it's easy to move 
it to the refrigerator in order to hasten the chocolate firming up. 
As soon as it's set up remove from the fridge and break into 
large chunks then random smaller chunks. 

The topping possibilities are seemingly infinite ~
(you can use dark chocolate as the base if you prefer)
sprinkle broken-up:
leftover Halloween candy
candy bars
mini marshmallows
any kind of nuts
 sweetened breakfast cereal
mini crackers 
(such as goldfish or small cheese crackers)
 popcorn, etc.

Have fun with it and enjoy!

I'm sending a big thank you to Michael Lee West for her
hospitality and generosity ~

Please come visit Foodie Friday to see what's cooking this week.

Thank you for stopping by today!



  1. Mari, this is an excellent way to use the sprinkles and other Halloween candy on the shelves this time of year. I'm a fan of chocolate almond bark, but will try some of these other ideas. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Your bark sounds great and is very colorful:@)

  3. You would be a HUGE hit w/ the alphabet boys:)
    The containers are so cute too:)

  4. hmmmm, this is sophisticated bark! Marcona almonds and peanut butter filled pretzels, I wish I had just a tiny bite right now!!

  10. A big delicious sigh from me this morning and a sweet and salty treat to tempt my taste buds Mari! I love your flavor combination and of course your photos are a feast for the eyes!

  11. I would have never thought of making chocolate bar. How creative! I am so impressed with all of the different ways everyone has used the mystery sprinkles.

  12. Hi Mary and Sam!
    Mary, I'm a sweet/salty gal all the way... too much sugar and you lose me, but add a little salt and I can keep coming back for more (which isn't necessarily a GOOD thing! lol...)

    Sam, I was really impressed at all the ways our friends utilized the sprinkles in such clever ways too! I'm always in awe at the talent I see on the various blogs (yours included!)

    Happy Weekend!

  13. Oh Mari, the bark looks scrumptious! What a fun use of the MIC sprinkles.
