What could possibly say I love you more than this sweet treat of Easter Bark.   Easter is my all time favorite holiday and everyone knows that Easter is celebrated at my house every year.  Each year I try to come up with creative treats that really remind us all of the sweet fun of the holiday. 

Easter Bark

Bark has become my go to treat for all holidays because with just a change of the color chocolate you use and the sweet treats you sprinkle on, you have one incredibly festive treat.

Just looking at this bark makes me happy.  You can imagine how happy I am once I take a bite!

What Type Of Chocolate To Use For Bark

I have used two different kinds of candy melts.  If you happen to use the Wilton candy melts the directions on the back are perfect.   If not I will tell you the perfect directions for melting your chocolate. 

Melting chocolate in Instant Pot

Did you know you can use your instant pot as a double boiler? This has quickly become my go to method for my candy making. 

I shared exactly how to use your pressure cooker to melt your chocolate. It is crazy easy and works like a charm every tome. No burnt chocolate! 

  Melting chocolate in microwave:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave.  Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. 

 Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power.  Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy.  

Remember less is better.  You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon.  You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

Topping Ideas For Easter Bark Recipe

  • Crunch up some Easter or Spring Oreos. They will add a pretty pop of color. 
  • M&Ms
  • Skittles
  • Nuts or seeds – I have used Jordan almonds that were pastel colored
  • Jelly beans 
  • Easter Sprinkles 
  • And more

Since this is Easter you might enjoy pastel items or bold colors. 

No batter what you choose to use it will be mighty tasty. 

How to Store Leftover Easter Bark

All you have to do is allow your almond bark to firm up on the counter. Once it is set break into pieces than store in airtight container or sealable bag. 

You can store the chocolate bark on the counter in your home. Now if you topped with say fruit or something perishable then it would need refrigerated. 

Can You Freeze Chocolate Bark

This bark freezes beautifully. Just toss into freezer bag or container and store for up to three months. 

Remove all or just a few pieces and allow to warm up at room temperature. 

It’s the perfect quick grab snack to have tucked into your freezer.

Can I Use Different Chocolate Than Candy Melts

Sure you can! White chocolate doesn’t work well when it gets colored. So I reached for melts so I could enjoy more color. Use what you would like. 

You can always add color by the toppings you use!
