Easter Candy Bark

This Easter Candy Bark is a great spring treat that is as beautiful as it is tasty! Using your favorite pastel candies and crushed up cookies, set into melted chocolate, it makes a fabulous dessert or treat for your Easter basket! #easter #spring #dessert

I’ve said before that my kids REALLY love Easter. Other than Halloween, it is basically the candy holiday of choice. It may even be preferable since it happens in Spring, so it’s not quite as cold as its Autumn counterpart. And this Easter Candy Bark is definitely a great way to get ready for the holiday!

Obviously, Easter baskets are a big deal to kids, and they are always wanting as much candy as they can get. It’s one of the reasons I really love this particular recipe. You can make it in advance and add it to the baskets for a special surprise, which is always nice.

OR – and my personal favorite – you can wait until much later, when there’s only random bits of candy left in the baskets, and you just want it to be gone already. It’s the perfect way to use up all the dregs, and it gives kids new inspiration to eat it up. As if they really needed the encouragement…

Anyway, this is a super simple recipe, and if you’ve ever made candy bark, you’ll know that it doesn’t take much effort at all.

Here’s what you’ll need.

1 package white chocolate Candiquick
⅓ cup each of your choice candy melt colors
1 cup crushed Easter candy of your choice
Parchment paper

Easter Candy Bark - Amazing Easter treat

I love using malted chocolate easter eggs in this recipe, as they pair really well, but you can use whatever you want. I also think that chopped up sandwich cookies (I’m partial to the Limited Edition Peeps Oreos!) make a great addition to this. But again, you can use whatever you like!

To begin, line a small pan with parchment paper and spray it with nonstick.

Melt your white chocolate and candy melts in separate bowls. Pour white chocolate into the pan, spreading out to make a sheet. Drizzle each of the other colors in a pattern of your choice on top of the white chocolate, then swirl it gently with a fork.

*Don’t swirl too much!

Drop crushed candy and cookies across your entire sheet, then gently tap your pan on a surface to help candies sink into the chocolate.

I like to package it up in colorful pastel cellophane and give it as gifts. Isn’t it SO pretty??

  1. I’ve never tried making bark before, but now I’m tempted! This would be lovely for our Easter party, if I can stop myself from demolishing it that is 🙂
