Happy Saturday, kids!
I’m off to the city for my one-year anniversary with Jessie (yay!!) but before I leave (and inevitably change my outfit for the 14th time) I wanted to share with you a quick and easy Easter recipe I whipped up for a road-trip snack.
It’s Easter Egg Bark, and it’s totally pretty, easily wrappable and addictive, of course.
I love making bark because of how easy it is–just melt some chocolate, spread it in the pan any thickness you like, and sprinkle your favorite nuts, chips or candies on top. It’s really that mindlessly simple.
But this bark is special–it’s swirled pink & purple and topped with tons of Easter candy, so it’s pretty and festive for the upcoming holiday. You could swirl any colors together you’d like, or top it with any candy of your choosing. But for this, I used Reese’s Pieces Eggs and Easter M&M’s, as well as some Easter sprinkles I had on hand.
2 pkg melting chocolate (I chose pink and purple candy melts)
Candy and sprinkles of your choice (again, for these I used Reese’s Pieces Eggs and Easter M&M’s, but speckled jelly beans, whopper eggs, or even marshmallows would be cute)
1. Start by foil-lining a rimmed baking sheet and setting it aside. In two large bowls, separately melt the chocolate melts according to color (pink in one bowl, purple in the other) until smooth & totally melted.
2. Drop heaping spoonfuls of each color side by side on the foil-lined baking sheet, spreading it to your desired thickness and shape. Using the tip of a butter knife, swirl the colors into each other to your favored look. I like it perfectly marbled between both colors.
3. Once swirled, immediately sprinkle with the candies and sprinkles. Allow to harden, about an hour, before breaking the bark apart. Store this airtight for about 1-2 days.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend–I know we will 🙂
