Learn how to make a white chocolate bark that only requires a few ingredients. It’s a perfect treat for all your springtime holidays and celebrations.
Making chocolate bark is a go-to holiday treat around our house. I’m not much of a cook, so I love that the recipe is virtually fail-proof and only requires three ingredients. From the mixing and pouring to the sprinkling and breaking, the kids thoroughly enjoy each step. Plus, the abundance of holiday-themed candy available at the supermarket these days makes it super easy to customize the treat to whichever special day we’re celebrating.
Here’s everything you need to know to make your own Easter Bark with the kids.
Things You’ll Need
- 1 bag of white chocolate melting wafers (you can also use white candy melts if you’d prefer an even sweeter taste).
- Sprinkles in Easter colors and shapes
- Your favorite Easter candy — we used pastel colored Junior Mints
- Small nonstick cookie pan — ours was 13 1/4 x 9 1/4 inches
- Double boiler or a pot and glass bowl
- An icing spatula
- Pizza cutter or knife
- Wooden spoon
Start by melting your chocolate. Fill a pot with a few inches of water and bring it to a boil with a double boiler on top. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can also fill a standard pot with about 2 inches of water and place a glass bowl on top.
Fill the double boiler or glass bowl with your chocolate melting wafers, stirring slowly as they melt.
While the chocolate is heating up, prepare your workspace by getting out your cookie sheet and pouring your candy and sprinkles into small individual bowls. This will make it easier for the kids to help you add the toppings to the chocolate.
Once the chocolate is fully melted, use the wooden spoon to spread it into a thin layer inside of the cookie pan.
While the chocolate is still warm, have the kids grab their favorite toppings from the bowl and sprinkle generously on top.
Once all of the candy toppings are added, allow the chocolate to harden. Then use your pizza cutter or knife to cut several diagonal lines in the bark. Don’t worry about being precise, but try to cut large pieces because they will crack into smaller chunks in the next step.
Use your icing spatula to pop the bark pieces up from the pan. This is a great time to ask the kids for more help. They will delight in the organized destruction!
That’s it. Pile your broken chunks of Easter Bark onto a plate and enjoy.
