makes 12 – 14 pieces
- 16 ounces high-quality white chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups leftover halloween candy
- parchment or wax paper
- baking sheet
Step 1: Using your pencil and ruler, draw an 8×10-inch rectangle on a piece of parchment. Flip parchment upside down so that pencil markings are on the underside and place it onto the large baking sheet.
Step 2: Chop any large pieces of candy up into large chunks and set aside.
Step 3: Melt the chocolate. Here’s how to do it with an improvised double boiler:
- Find a heat-proof or glass bowl that easily sits atop one of your sauce pans.
- Fill the saucepan halfway with water and set it over medium heat on the stove.
- Pour chocolate chips into the bowl and place bowl over the pan of simmering water.
- Make sure the water in the pan is not touching the bottom of the bowl. The water should only simmer, not boil, so adjust the heat as necessary.
- Use a rubber spatula, whisk the chocolate continuously until it is smooth and shiny, about 5-6 minutes. Remove chocolate immediately.
Step 4: Pour melted white chocolate onto prepared parchment and spread quickly with a small offset spatula until it reaches the edges of your pencil markings (which should be on the underside of the parchement paper; you will see the markings through the paper).
