This Easter chocolate bark recipe has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #shop I had this idea the other day that I was going to make some Easter chocolate bark and I was super pleased thinking about how my kids would love it too, there was just one little issue though, they loved the idea so much they wanted to join in! Thankfully chocolate bark is crazy easy to make so it’s a great Easter treat that the kids can get involved in creating too and it looks and tastes great no matter the age of your assistants!
Easy Easter Chocolate Bark Ingredients:
400g White chocolate (two large bars)
1 Packet Mini Eggs
1 Packet mini Malteser Bunnies
1 Packet sugar carrots
Let’s Make It!
We started off by heading to Morrisons to buy all our ingredients, they’ve got quite a big selection of Easter treats in our local store and we hunted down the mini eggs in their Easter aisle.
I was planning on making this with normal milk chocolate but my daughter decided we should go with white chocolate instead which I think was a great idea, it looks prettier and it stops everything being the same flavour. The white chocolate was from the normal confectionery section, the mini Malteser bunnies were with the Easter treats and we found the carrots in the baking section. This is a great recipe for after Easter too as if you are one of those families that ends up with a zillion Easter eggs for your kids then it’s a fun way to use some of the extras up!
As when you make bark you are working with melted chocolate I find it’s best to get everything prepared in advance so I cut some mini eggs in half with a sharp knife while the kids got the rest of the toppings out of their packaging and ready to add to their bark. We covered a baking tray in baking paper and then the kids wet to work breaking up the white chocolate and putting it into a small saucepan ready to heat.
It actually takes quite a bit of strength in your hands to break up all that chocolate but they were up to the challenge! We don’t have a microwave so instead of heating up the chocolate that way I use a bain marie made up of a small saucepan with the chocolate in it and a larger one containing hot water and this took a couple of minutes to melt the chocolate. After it was all melted all that had to be done was to pour the chocolate out on the baking paper and then the kids were ready to decorate it.
Lot’s of concentration going on there! Once all the decorations on we put it into the fridge until it was set which tends to take a few hours. Of course I’d love to say that we’ve saved this for Easter Day treat but it hasn’t lasted that long at all! In good news though I can confirm that it is delicious and it would make a lovely Easter gift for someone too (if you managed not to eat it all first!) Like the sound of this recipe?
