This bark is festive for Easter and is made in minutes. It's also a great way to cook with your kids -- they can customize the bark to their liking!
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg white chocolate bark (I use and love Candiquik)
  • 1 pkg (about 2 cups) jelly beans*
  • Easter sprinkles
  • Optional: Candy melts, for decoration (see Note)**
Instructions
  1. Line a clean, flat work-space with wax paper. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, melt the chocolate until smooth. Pour the chocolate over the wax paper and spread into your desired thickness.
  2. Immediately top the chocolate with the candy melts, if desired (see note), as well as the jelly beans and sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to set, then break into pieces to serve.
  3. *Note: I used speckled fruity beans so the flavors would be more cohesive. Feel free to use any type of jelly bean (fruity, mixed, spiced) you'd like.*
  4. **In these pictures, I used leftover colorful Candy Melts (by Wilton) to jazz up the white background and make things more colorful. I had pink, lime green and yellow on hand, so after immediately pouring the white chocolate out, I randomly placed the colored melts in a polka-dotted pattern on the chocolate, then immediately pressed in the jelly beans and sprinkles. Feel free to omit the melts completely, or use additional sprinkles to make it brighter.**
