HOW TO MAKE the EASTER BARK:
Easter Bark is made like all other chocolate barks.
First, melt some white chocolate and pour it out onto a surface, then add your favorite toppings, let it cool completely and cut it into pieces! Chocolate barks are a very easy and fun activity in the kitchen for the whole family to enjoy.
To make it look more festive and more for the Easter holiday, I dropped pastel-colored M&M candies on the base layer and then scattered shredded coconut and some green sparkling sugar on top.
My girls love the taste of this white chocolate bark. It offers a pleasing flavor, while the coconut adds a soft-chewy texture and the M&M candies offer a soft crunch in every bite. Perfect!
They think it’s cool to make chocolate bark for the holidays. They love to package them into gifts and give them away to family and friends and even to their co-workers.
Like all chocolate barks, they even make the perfect gift for all occasions!
Spring colored barks like this Easter Bark also make wonderful gift ideas for showers and even for Mother’s Day!
Personally, I enjoy making chocolate barks all year long especially around the holidays! And, this Easter Bark never disappoints!! Try it!
White chocolate chips do not melt as quickly as semi-sweet or even dark chocolate chips. So a little more patience is required as you stir the chocolate while it melts.
Ingredients needed for the Easter Bark:
1 (12 ounces) package Toll House Premier White Morsels (white chocolate chips)
1 package pastel colors M&M candies
1 cup organic shredded coconut
a sprinkle of green sparkling sugar ( I used India Tree)
GO ahead and PIN it to your EASTER Board!! …and thanks again! 🙂
