Easter is here! The Annual Easter egg hunt has come and gone, and the chocolate has been eaten by kids big and small at our house! To keep the sugar high alive, I threw together this Colourful and Sweet Easter Bark Recipe to add some colour and some fun to our celebration this year!
Here are the ingredients you need to put together to make this recipe:6
- 16 Belgian chocolate wafers
- 25 vanilla caramels
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 4 tablespoons festive sprinkles (2 tablespoons per type of sprinkle)
- a handful of Easter candy
You will need these items to help create this yummy treat:
- Cookie sheet or bread pan
- Parchment Paper
- Large pot of water and a large bowl (or a double boiler)
- Medium bowl
It was really easy to put this tasty treat together!
- Get a large pot of water boiling with water and a large glass bowl to create a double boiler.
- Line a cookie sheet or a pan with parchment paper
- Once the water in the pot is rolling, place the chocolate wafers in a few at a time to melt them and folding them over each other constantly. Once they start to melt, continue to melt them until there are about 10 left. Once you get to this point, remove the pot from the heat and melt the remainder of the wafers while folding the cold wafers into the melted ones.
4. Place melted chocolate into the fridge for 15-20 mins.
5. Melt the caramels in a large glass bowl over the same large pot of water with the milk and stir constantly (you may need to top the water up in the pot if it is too low and let the water boil again).
6. Once the caramel has melted, pour and spread ¾ of this mixture over the chilled chocolate and place back into the fridge for about 20 mins.
7. Remove the sheet/pan from the fridge and spread the remainder of the chocolate on the chilled chocolate /caramel sheet.
8. Drizzle the remainder of the caramel over the chocolate in your desired design.
9. Cover your chocolate/caramel sheet with the sprinkles. I would advise you use one type of sprinkles at a time and blend the other type(s) as you go.
10. Add your chocolate in the open spaces (I tried to get the darker chocolate pieces where there were lighter sprinkles and vise-versa so they will stand out).
11. Place the sheet/pan back into the fridge for about 60 mins to make sure the chocolate and caramels are cold all the way through.
11. Remove from the fridge and break apart into hand-sized pieces and serve!
(Yields about 12 pieces depending on the size you break up your bark)
I love that this recipe is super easy to make and one bark will be unique as you cannot recreate the same one twice!
Hopefully, this bark recipe will make your Easter a sweet affair!
