Easter Bark Recipe Your Little Bunnies Will Love

This marbled Easter bark is a fun twist on a standard recipe – and it only takes a few minutes to make. Plus it includes chocolate eggs!

Easter bark

This is both a craft and recipe blog, so sometimes my attention gets split between the two. That also sometimes means that I need to do a quick recipe or a quick craft since I can’t do both.

Well when it came to Easter this year, crafts won out, and recipes came in second. I decided to do an Easter dessert recipe.

And if you can tell me that the recipe 1) is really easy, and 2) involves candy . . . well, I’m pretty much sold without even knowing what it is.

Easy Easter Bark

With Easter right around the corner, I decided to try a standby family treat recipe but change it up for this holiday. This is my version of Easter bark! It’s got chocolate and vanilla, a little bit of crunch, and you can make it in 15 minutes.

Let me correct myself – you can make A LOT of this bark in 15 minutes. I’ve already given some to my neighbors and it’s a hit! I can’t wait to share the recipe with you. Here’s how you do it.

Ingredients

  • Vanilla flavored candy wafers – at least two pounds. I actually used almost four
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs Candy – one 10 oz. bag
  • Whoppers Robin Eggs Malted Milk Eggs – at least the carrot bag size or great
  • Pan for heating candy wafers
  • Baking sheet with edges
  • Parchment paper
  • Spatula
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Hammer and paper towels (for cracking)
Cadbury Mini Eggs and Robin Eggs

These were the Hershey products that I used in my Easter bark. Don’t you love their Easter candy? I love their traditional goodies and the new treats that they have this year.

For example, the Cadbury Creme Egg Candies are my favorite . . . who doesn’t love those? They’ve been around since I was little! I have to say that quite a bit of candy disappeared before it actually made it into the recipe. Oopsie.

Melting white candy melts

Open your bag of candy melts and pour into a pan . . . starting heating on LOW. This is very important. I actually made a huge mistake once by turning the heat up a little too high and burned a little at the bottom of the pan. I’ve avoided that same mistake by keeping the heat at a 1 or 2 on the stove and letting the candy wafers slowly melt.

Spreading out candy melts

I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with the marbling . . . but I wanted to bring the food coloring in somehow. So here’s what I did.

I poured some melted white wafers (about 1/3 of what I had) into the parchment lined pan, and then added my food coloring. I stirred and stirred, and then poured the pink into the pan on top of the white and smoothed with my spatula.

It actually created such a fun marbling effect for my Easter bark! While it was setting up, I was able to swirl the colors together AND add my eggs on top. I pushed down to make sure the eggs went into the melted chocolate and would set up.

Easter bark recipe

You won’t want to place in the fridge right away – let it cool and then place in the fridge to harden. THEN comes the most fun part, especially if you have a little stress.

You’ll turn the pan over (and because of the parchment paper, the bark will come right out). Place a paper towel on top and “bang.” Just slightly – you don’t want to go crazy and break a counter. You just need a tap on the bark and it will break. Continue until the pieces are small enough.

Easter bark recipe

Use melting chocolate to make this candy Easter bark! Kids love to get involved with this holiday recipe too. It's easy, fun, and so tasty.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 24 oz Wilton Candy Melts, White
  • 3/4 cup Cadbury eggs
  • 3/4 cup Whoppers Robin eggs
  • Pink food coloring (optional)

Instructions

  1. Put a piece of wax paper on top of a cookie sheet to prepare your surface.
  2. Open the bag(s) of candy melts and add to a stove. Heat on the lowest heat possible to avoid scorching. Let the candy warm and melt for about 15 minutes. It may take a little longer. Watch it carefully.
  3. Spread the chocolate over the wax paper in a medium layer, making about a 9 x 13 inch rectangle. Repeat this process with the melts until you've covered the wax paper.
  4. At this point, you can use food coloring if you like.. Using a toothpick, drag the coloring through the top layer to make a marbled design.
  5. Top the bark with the Cadbury Eggs and Robin's Eggs. Let set until completely hardened (or place in the fridge) then cut into pieces with knife or use a towel and a hammer to break apart.

Notes

In addition to using the top of a stove, you can also use a Wilton candy melter as well as the microwave (in 30 second bursts) to melt the pieces.
