Easter Candy Bark




Hi friends. We think Candy Bark is almost a miracle.  Are you in the mood for making?  It's one of the easiest treats you'll ever make, is infinitely adaptable and can be very original.   Candy Bark can satisfy an artist, a child or make a beautiful, sophicated Hostess Gift. Whether you're making these with kids or you're off to Downton with the gals: choose candy or pick Violets. Come with us below and I'll show you how.

Follow along to see what we made and how we made it! 

Ingredients:
White Chocolate, Easter candy such as: Jelly Beans, Sliced Peeps, Crushed Candy Covered Chocolate Eggs + Dark Chocolate 

Plus: Double Boiler, Baking Paper
How to Make Easter Candy Bark:

- Melt White Chocolate in a Double-boiler.

- Pour White Chocolate onto a sheet of Baking Paper.

- Smooth with spatula, as necessary. 
Add details!

We added:
Jelly Beans, Sliced Peeps, Crushed Candy Covered Chocolate Eggs + Dark Chocolate to create a marbled chocolate bark and for decorating! 
1. Sprinkle White Chocolate with Easter Candy! Above we used Jelly Beans + Peeps.

2. Marbled Chocolate Candy:
- Layer Dark Chocolate over White Chocolate.
. Sprinkle with Crushed Candy Covered Easter Eggs
- Marble but drawing a knife in a parallel pattern through the chocolate.
-Let Cool.
3. Paint with chocolate to make: Modern Chocolate Bunnies:
- Pipe Dark Chocolate onto the White Chocolate Bottom.
- Let Cool.
(I love making these and have used the chocolate as paint in several different ways: 1) fill a piping bag and draw details 2. Use a brush and paint with dark chocolate on the white chocolate once the white chocolate is cool 3. Fill a container with a lip and pour the chocolate in a pattern. )

4. Fresh Flower Candy Bark:
Add fresh edible flowers to the bark!

Once the Candy Bark Cools, break into smaller pieces, serve and enjoy. 

It's a "piece of cake" to make! We made 6 varieties in 30 minutes before school! (true!) making this such an ultimate quick party treat.   Happy Creating and, as always, I'd love to see what you do with this tutorial!
