Easy Easter Bark

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 areΒ my affiliate links below in case you’re interested in having the supplies shipped to your door.

You’ll need:

melted chocolate poured out of a warming pot onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet

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.

melted chocolate spread evenly on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet

Spread the candy out in an even layer with a spatula, making sure to cover the entire length and width of the pan.

Marshmallow Peeps placed into melted chocolate

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…

marshmallows and jelly beans added to Peeps and melted chocolate

Then add the jellybeans and marshmallows evenly amongst the peeps…

sprinkles added to pan of melted chocolate with jelly beans, marshmallows and 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!

Ingredients

  • 12 oz 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

Instructions

  1. Line a 10 x 15 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a double boiler pan (or Wilton candy warmer), heat the lavender candy melts under medium heat. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate on to the parchment lined baking pan and smooth out evenly with a rubber spatula.
  4. Scatter the marshmallow bunnies through out the bark. Next, sprinkle the mini marshmallows and jelly beans all over the bark. Finally, generously sprinkle with the rainbow jimmies sprinkles. You will have to add these items rather quickly as the bark begins to harden within 5 minutes and then nothing will stick to it.
  5. Chill for 1 hour to allow the bark to completely harden.
  6. Once chilled, break into pieces and serve. ENJOY!!

  1. Oh, the bark looks delicious and cute. Having the melting pot would be nice. I have to be so careful not to overheat the candy in the microwave.

    1. Yes, it’s so easy to scorch the candy in the microwave, since it heats food so quickly. I hope you’ll have a chance to try the bark soon!
