Who doesn’t love Easter candy? All those pretty pastel chocolate candies just waiting to be gobbled up!? Let’s just say that sometimes the Easter bunny is more than generous when he comes to our house. Its all great but there tends to be a lot of leftover candy that somehow I end up eating. Well no more! This year I’ve decided the make Easter bark with the leftover candy and take it to work for coworkers to enjoy. This would also be a great treat to show up on an elderly neighbor’s doorstep with since they don’t get visited by the ol’ Easter bunny nearly as often. This Easter bark took only a few minutes to make and is really easy. Here’s how we did it:
Easter Candy Bark
2 White Chocolate baking bars, 4 ounces each
About 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips or chunks
Assorted Easter Candy (I went with crispy M&Ms and Cadbury Chocolate eggs)
1. First, chop your pretzels and any large pieces of candy and place them in bowls nearby ready to sprinkle.
2. Microwave in a glass bowl the white chocolate broken into chunks in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until thoroughly melted. Do the same for the chocolate chips or chunks.
3. Pour the white chocolate onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then spoon the chocolate on top in sections. Using a spoon, weave it through the two chocolates so that they make a swirl. This is for effect only, ha!
4. Sprinkle with candy and pretzels to your hearts content!
5. Let sit for a few hours to harden or place in fridge if you want to speed up the process. Once hardened, use a sharp knife to cut up into chunks.
6. Package up in cute tins and gift away. That is unless you eat it first!
Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday filled with treats!
