This year I am celebrating graduations in a big way…. I have 3 boys all graduating various grades.  My oldest is graduating High School.  My second oldest is graduating from 8th grade and my youngest is graduating from 5th grade.  Since I love making holiday bark I knew I needed to make a graduation version.  What better a way to show your joy of their accomplishments then with special graduation 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!



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 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. 


Directions for making your bark:

Pour your melted chocolate onto a piece of parchment paper.  Spread it out to about the thickness you would like your bark to be.  Quickly (before your chocolate starts to firm up) add your toppings to your chocolate.  This is where you will want the kids to join in the fun.

  1. I love your graduation bark! These are the colors of our school. Could you tell what chocolates you used? And sprinkles and candy? I would love to come close to this look. So very pretty!

    Thank you,

  2. I love this idea!! So, just to clarify, you put both colors (in separate bowls) in the mic at the same time, then when melted you pour one on wax paper, then swirl the other into it?
    And, how many bags would you need to make one cookie sheet size (for example?)

    Looks amazing – thanks for sharing!!

    1. I am so happy you love this! So you microwave each color separately. Pour either the blue or the white onto the wax paper first, then pour the remaining color on top and swirl with a knife. For one cookie sheet, one bag of each color should be plenty. Stop by my facebook page when you make yours and share a picture, I would love to see! Happy Graduation fun!
