Creating this Incredible Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Bark is An Easy, Fun, and Spooky Activity to enjoy with your family this Fall.
Have you ever debated whether The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie with your family and friends? I definitely have and I say it’s both! I have one of those Disney monster Christmas wreaths, clearly a Christmas decoration. Then I’ve also made and have Halloween decorations like this Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired Halloween Sign.
So when I wanted to come up with a fun Fall snack for my family, I thought this “Nightmare Bark” would be a great way to use up both Halloween and Christmas cookie decorations I already had on hand. The Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Bark perfectly combines cute elements from both holidays into one crazy confection!
It’s great to make and serve for both Halloween and Christmas. It’s super easy to whip up and you can add however many candy pieces you prefer or can find. No two batches will be exactly the same. Fun, fun! So let’s see how you can make some!

There are a lot of creative ways to incorporate Nightmare Before Christmas in this Halloween bark. For example for the pumpkins I used Candi Fetti Halloween Pumpkins and snowflake marshmallows. When I made my bark it was more for Christmas and had bought the Halloween sprinkles and candies when they were on clearance. I would love to see how you make Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Bark!
