How to make white chocolate Easter bark
Scroll down to the recipe card for all of the ingredients and measurements.
Note: I prefer parchment paper because it is slightly larger than the pan so the chocolate won’t leak underneath it.
Crush Cadbury Mini Eggs in a plastic bag with a rolling pin and set them aside.
Place the sheet tray in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or until cooled and hardened
I like to use Funfetti chips for this recipe, but any white chocolate is perfectly fine.
Before the white chocolate cools, add the toppings of your choice. For this recipe, I used pastel rainbow nonpareils sprinkles, colored coconut, and Cadbury Mini Eggs.
Melt the colored chocolate candy melts and drizzle over the top with a spoon. Use as many colors as you’d like.
Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator; about a half-hour or so. Once cooled, break the white chocolate Easter bark into pieces and serve.
How to drizzle chocolate
Drizzling the colored chocolate candy melts over the top might look fancy, but it’s not difficult.
Just melt the chocolate in the microwave per the directions and take a spoon, any old spoon, and scoop out a spoonful. Hold your spoon full of chocolate over the sheet tray and pretend you’re Jackson Pollock.
Move your spoon from side to side to drip chocolate all over the surface of the Easter bark and watch the magic happen.
How to store Easter bark
Once the bark has cooled completely and you’re successfully in your chocolate happy place after eating one or five pieces, you can store the leftovers in an airtight storage container.
There is no need to store it in the refrigerator. A counter or pantry shelf will do just fine.
Can bark be frozen?
What do you do if you have leftovers? Crazy thought, I know, but luckily you can freeze white chocolate Easter bark should the unthinkable happen
How to freeze chocolate bark
To freeze chocolate bark, wrap each piece individually in wax or parchment paper then put the individually wrapped pieces in a good quality freezer bag or freezer-safe container.
Frozen bark should keep for about six months. Thaw in the refrigerator or even eat it frozen. Why not? I’m not going to tell you how to live your best life.
