Easter Candy Bark

One thing I love about Easter?  Pastel colored EVERYTHING.  When I stumbled across this candy bark recipe, I knew that I was going to have share it with you guys!  Ooo.... ooo... and remember those Hummingbird Nests?  Remember when I said you could make them with just about anything?  Alicia made some with chow mein noodles (and a another recipe) and they look so very yummy!  Check them out right here.  See, told you that they could be made with just about anything!

On to the candy bark...

8 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
8 ounces milk chocolate chips
7 ounces pink candy melts
1/2 cup Spring Oreos -cut in half (they have a yellow center)
1/4 cup Easter Candy Corn
1/4 cup Mini Cadbury Eggs – cut in half (the hard shell ones)
1/4 cup Mini Robin Eggs (malt balls/Whoppers)
1/8 cup M&Ms (You can use whatever kind you like)

Measure out the candy and cookies. Set aside

Lay out a large piece of parchment paper. You’ll use this to make the Easter Candy Bark on.

Put 8 ounces of semi sweet chocolate chips and 8 ounces of milk chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Melt the chocolate chips but be careful not to overheat the chocolate.

Spread the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper into an 8 by 11 rectangle. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect.

In a microwavable bowl, melt the pink candy melts. (you can use whatever color you like). Be careful not to overheat the candy melts. Drop the melted candy melts on top of the chocolate.

Using a knife, swirl it up and down. Then swirl it back and forth.

Place the candy and cookies on the melted chocolate/candy melts. Press down lightly.

Allow the Easter Candy Bark to dry for at least 3 hours. Cut into pieces and enjoy!

Just like the Hummingbird Nests, this bark can be made with virtually any type/color of candy you'd like! Shoot... changing up the color can even change the holiday you are celebrating!

Happy hunting!
