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.
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.
Set in a cool place to harden for 30 minutes. Break apart with a knife and eat.
I like to package it up in colorful pastel cellophane and give it as gifts. Isn’t it SO pretty??
It doesn’t really get any better than that. What do you think? Are you going to try it this year? Your kids will love you forever!
