how’s that diet going?
not good. i had eggs for breakfast.
Ironically I am not a huge sweet person. Don’t let the last few recipes mislead you, I would prefer a LARGE bowl of pasta with meatballs & extra vodka sauce over dessert any day.
But it is basically sac-religious to not enjoy a treat or two around the 2nd largest candy holiday of the year, so I am very glad Easter chocolate bark was invented! Not only is it a fun chocolate treat to make but it also incorporates all of the Easter chocolate goodness: Cadbury eggs, Robin malted eggs & M&Ms. You can throw in any of your favorite chocolate favorites to change up the taste.
Since my parents live over 1,100 miles from me & my little sister is over 3,900 miles away in Germany I get to spend the holiday with my mans family. They are big sweet lovers so I know the Easter chocolate bark will be a big hit this weekend…if there is any left in the house by Sunday.
Confession: I originally only bought 8 oz of the Baker’s white chocolate & quickly realized that it was not going to be enough chocolate for everyone…then the store was sold out of the Bakers chocolate when I went back so I bought a 15oz bag of white chocolate morsels & combined them for the recipe.
If you are debating which to buy, they both work great. I will say though the morsels will go further & are cheaper per ounce, so it may be your best bet.
The bark was so pretty in one large piece I had a hard time breaking it up (aka more for me to eat on my own)!
You can leave all of the chocolate egg variations whole or give a few of them a rough chop to add a different look to your bark, completely up to you!
This recipe ended up being so much fun to make. The color possibilities were endless with the pastel food coloring & after I was finished I was definitely in the Easter spirit!
- 24 oz white chocolate, divided
- 1/2 cup m&ms
- 1/4 cup cadbury mini eggs
- 1/4 cup robin malted eggs
- 1 tbsp sprinkles
- food coloring
Divide white chocolate up into 3 bowls. Half of the chocolate into 1 bowl, and then the other half is split between the other two bowls.
Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.
Add food coloring to 2-3 of the bowls (per your preference) and mix well.
Onto a sheet pan with parchment paper, spread the largest bowl of chocolate onto the sheet. Spread thin.
Add the other two bowls by making big or small blobs of chocolate.
Taking a wooden stick or spoon mix the chocolates together creating swirls and stripes. You can make this however you want to look.
Add m&ms, robin eggs, Cadbury eggs & sprinkles on immediately.
Place in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes to harden.
Once out of the fridge, break into pieces & serve. Enjoy!
If you want your chocolate to have a shine to it, you can add a tsp of coconut oil when melting chocolate in microwave.
