Variation Ideas

  • Use your favorite Easter candy on top. I love topping mine with sprinkles and M&Ms. However robin eggs, Reese’s pieces, jelly beans, mini eggs or small chocolate bunnies would work great too. Anytime of candy that you love would be delicious on this candy bark.
  • Add nuts to the top.
  • You can easily make white chocolate Easter bark by using all white chocolate instead of combining the 2 types of chocolate. 
  • Use different colors of sprinkles for other holidays- red and green for Christmas, green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange and black for Halloween, pink and red for Valentine’s Day. These are great year round.
  • Try other seasonal m&ms other other types of candy for different themes.
  • Try using white chocolate, milk chocolate or even dark chocolate.
  • Switch up the colors to match sports themes, birthday party colors, school colors and more.

Storage

Refrigerate any leftover bark in an airtight container for up to 1 week. This bark is great to make ahead of the holidays since it will last for up to a week in the refrigerator.

You can also freeze this homemade bark in a freezer bag for up to 5-6 months. This bark freezes great as long as it’s stored correctly.

Pro Tips

  • Don’t over swirl the chocolate. You do not want the colors to be over combined.
  • Allow to set. Don’t break into pieces too soon or it will be messy. It needs to refrigerate.
  • Try new toppings. We also like chocolate eggs, cadbury mini eggs, sprinkles, mini marshmallows and more.
