How to make Mini Cadbury Egg Easter Candy Bark
Gather your ingredients from the supply list and let’s make some homemade chocolate bark. Get your cookie sheet ready by placing a piece of wax paper or parchment paper that will cover the whole pan. If you have a silicone slipmat you can use that instead.
The first thing we’re going to do is melt the chocolate. If you don’t have white chocolate chips then you can choose to use candy melts or white almond bark. The almond bark will need to be chopped with a sharp knife into smaller pieces so the chocolate won’t burn.
You can also use dark chocolate instead of white chocolate just grab dark, semisweet chocolate, chocolate melts, or milk chocolate chips and continue the recipe. You can also make some with white chocolate and the others in dark chocolate just make sure to use a separate bowl. You can also layer the chocolate waiting until the dark or milk chocolate has set and then add a layer of white chocolate on top. The two chocolate flavors are sure to make everyone’s easter holidays better! Something for everyone.
You can use food dye in pastel colors to change the white chocolate bark into a light pink, blue, or even purple. This is just something fun you can do with simple ingredients that add some extra color to your easter celebration.
How to Melt Chocolate in 3 Different Ways.
The first way to melt chocolate is to microwave the chopped up chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 10-15 second increments stopping to stir in between. Once the chocolate is completely melted continue on to the next step in the recipe. If your chocolate has seized up or smells a little burnt you can save it by adding a little bit of oil 1/2 tsp at a time making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl to get all that seized chocolate moving. This will thin out the chocolate and make it smooth again. Be careful removing the heat-proof bowl from the microwave because it will be hot, so use mittens.
The second way to melt chocolate is to use a double boiler method over medium to low heat. If you don’t have one then no problem. Grab a saucepan and add about an inch of water to the bottom. Once the water is simmering add the second double boiler pot on top then pour in the chocolate to melt stirring often. Don’t have one? No problem. Grab a clean and empty glass pyrex bowl that you can set on top of the saucepan but won’t fall in. You want the water to heat the bowl then melt the chocolate. Be sure to stir the chocolate while it’s melting.
Lastly, today’s version is called “I don’t have any of that junk” / makeshift chocolate melting. Grab your heavy bottomed saucepan, spray it with cooking spray away from the stove, then melt the chocolate over medium-low heat until melted but not burnt. Don’t forget if your chocolate seizes up or looks a little burnt
Choose which way is best for you and let’s get on with your easy recipe for a fun easter treat!
How to Shape Melted White Chocolate into Circles.
Get your prepared pan and let’s start making some circle shapes with the melted chocolate by using the back of a spoon. You can also make egg shapes to be a little more eggcellent. Ok, ok… enough with the bad jokes.
Spoon the chocolate into a thin layer but not too thin. you need to be able to peel it off of the parchment paper later on and kids need to be able to hold it without it breaking too fast.
Working quickly still make sure that you have an even layer of chocolate mixture in the shape that you want. This is a fun activity for kids especially if you have enough chocolate to make a giant easter egg bark treat.
Once you have your baking tray covered with yummy candy easter eggs it’s time to start adding sprinkles. You can also use edible grass here. You can find it this time of year at Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or even Amazon.
Use small sprinkles or pastel sprinkles that are easter themed. Your kids would love to help sprinkle the candy circles, I know mine would! Sprinkles can be in a ball shape, with bunny ears, sticks, circles, and so on. The sprinkles options are endless! Today, though we will be using green and yellow sprinkles with a few white circles on top of that. No matter what kind of sprinkles you use, make sure to relax, have fun and make some memories with your kids! Check out the baking aisle at craft stores like Micheal’s
Next up is to add your favorite easter candies. This part is completely up to you so have fun! You can add jelly beans, mini marshmallows, little bunnies, and pretzel sticks. Our favorite candy is Mini Cadbury Eggs! They are by far the best thing to complete this easter dessert.
Top your easy treat with either the same color mini chocolate eggs or different colored eggs. Have your child help you choose which color they want on each Easter Candy Bark. Place 3 or 4 candy eggs on top of the sprinkles adding more or less depending on the size of the chocolate circle that you made.
If you made bite size easter egg bark then have your young kids help you not only set the Cadbury eggs on each circle but it’s also a great way for the kids to decide how many is too many. Maybe the last one that you make can have all their favorite easter candy on it. Once you finish setting all the eggs on top of the candy bark you can set the leftovers in a bowl for all to enjoy (which is my kids’ favorite part) or keep them as a favorite topping for cupcakes, cookies, or even rice Krispie treats.
Once you have finished setting up all your little easter bark candies you can set the aside for them to harden at room temperature, or pop them in the fridge for a few minutes. These are great for easter baskets or any spring event you happen to attend.
To make them a little more versatile you can set a lollipop stick or popsicle stick down on the pan before you top with melted chocolate. This way you will have a candy sucker for your kids to enjoy. Let the chocolate hardens then wrap it in a treat bad and set them on the table for your kids to find a special treat just for them.
What Can I Add to My Easter Candy Bark
Everything tastes better with chocolate, or at least that’s what I say. To add a little more flavor and crunch to your easter chocolate bark try adding in some salty pretzels or broken up pretzel sticks.
Graham crackers would also be a good base for the candy bark. So instead of spooning the chocolate onto the parchment paper try spreading out some graham crackers onto a sheet pan and then topping it with the melted chocolate.
Your child’s favorite toppings could be just the favorite candies, try jelly beans, chocolate kisses, broken up candy bars, or even M&M’s in pastel colors.
