Making homemade treats for the holidays is such a fun (and delicious) tradition, but as a busy mom, I don’t always have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen baking. That’s why I love simple recipes like this Easy Easter Bark…it comes together in just a few minutes, but it looks like I spent a lot of time making my own candy.
Not only do the kids love to munch on it, but it looks so festive with the Easter bunny peeps, the colorful jelly beans and sprinkles. It’s a great thing to take to a potluck or just to snack on while hunting for Easter eggs!
How to make easy Easter bark
To make this easy Easter bark, you’ll want to first gather your ingredients. Most of the supplies you’ll need can be purchased at Amazon.
The links to these items are my affiliate links below in case you’re interested in having the supplies shipped to your door.
- 12 ounce bag Wilton lavender candy melts
- 9-10 Peeps bunny marshmallows (pink, yellow and white)
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/2 cup jumbo jelly beans
- Rainbow jimmies sprinkles
To begin, you’ll want to melt the candy so that it’s pourable. This Wilton melting pot makes it super easy to melt the candy to the right temperature without scorching, but you can also do this in the microwave, checking often to make sure that the candy doesn’t burn.
Pour the candy out on a 10 X 15 pan that is lined with parchment paper.
Spread the candy out in an even layer with a spatula, making sure to cover the entire length and width of the pan.
Working quickly, you’ll want to start laying the toppings on the candy. If you take too long, the candy will harden again, and nothing will stick to it.
First, you’ll want to add the bunny peeps…
Then add the jellybeans and marshmallows evenly amongst the peeps…
And finally, add the rainbow sprinkles all over to finish up the bark.
Place the pan into the refrigerator for about an hour so that the bark hardens completely, then break into individual pieces and enjoy!
I just love how cute the bunny peeps are sticking out from amongst the jellybeans and sprinkles!
Hopefully the kids will share this will all their friends so that I won’t be tempted to eat too much of it 🙂
Enjoy making this fun Easy Easter Bark Recipe for your own kids this year!
