Easter Bark

Now I know Easter is over, and we have probably eaten so many Easter eggs that we are just sick of chocolate. But if you do have some Easter eggs left over and don’t know what to do with them, you can make this yummy, irresistible Easter Bark.

Since it contains lots of delicious Easter eggs, I couldn’t think what to call the bark. Easter is over, and all I could think of was Easter Bark. Maybe it could be called Surprise Bark since it has popping candy eggs in it? Loaded Bark as there are loads of chocolate in it?

Maybe Rainbow Bark as there are so many different colours?

The Bark is very easy to make, and the best bit is, it uses up those Easter eggs that we have sitting in our cupboard or like I have, spread all over the kitchen bench.

Recipe type: Chocolate
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 375 gms White Chocolate Melts
  • 1 x 110 gms Cadbury Popping Candy, chopped
  • 60 gms Clinkers, chopped
  • 60 gms M&M's candy eggs, half chopped and half left whole
  • 1-2 tablespoons of 100's & 1000's or coloured sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Melt the 375gms of white chocolate as per directions on the packet. I melted mine on low in the microwave.
  3. Pour the melted white chocolate onto the baking paper, and using a spatula or spoon, spread it into an even layer about ¼-inch thick.
  4. Sprinkle all of the chopped chocolate on top then place the baking sheet in the fridge to chill for 30 to 45 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
  5. Remove the bark from the fridge and carefully slide it onto a cutting board. Cut the bark into irregularly shaped pieces.
  6. Keep in an airtight container in a cool place for up to one week.

So if you have an abundance of Easter chocolate left over, make a batch of Easter Bark. If you don’t want to consume any more chocolate yourself, then make it for your friends and family. The Easter Bark is lovely to have with coffee or a cup of tea.

How is your Easter egg situation? Too much or not enough?

Enjoy!

    I love eating leftover Easter eggs and usually manage to stretch them out for a few months but this does look so very pretty
