Meet the Sullivans: Easter Bunny Bark

Easter Bunny Bark

Can you believe that we are on the heels of Easter and this is the first Easter themed treat I've made this season? I blame St. Patrick's Day and Easter being way too close together this year. I'm barely over celebrating The Luck of the Irish before it's time for The Easter Bunny. Anyway, I whipped up this sweet little treat this afternoon on a whim. It was my first experience making a bark and it was so easy I know I'll be making many more in the future!


 The Cast of Characters:
Chocolate Easter Bunnies, 20 ounces of good white chocolate {I used Ghirardelli squares}, + lots of colorful, tasty Easter candy. I used: 1 package pastel M&Ms, 3 chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies, two handfuls white chocolate covered pretzels and pastel colored candy corn. 


Step One: Chop up all of your Easter candy. The smaller candies (like candy corn) don't really need chopping.

Step Two: Line an 9 x 11 pan with parchment paper. A metal jellyroll pan works best.

Step Three: Spray a medium size microwave safe bowl with a bit of oil. This helps the chocolate to pour smoothly. Add all but one bar of chocolate to the bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave chocolate for 30 seconds and then stir until chocolate is melted. Add the remaining chocolate and stir. If needed, pop the chocolate back in the microwave for 15 seconds, stirring until all the white chocolate is melted.


Step Four: Pour melted chocolate onto parchment paper and spread. Now comes the FUN part. Begin placing Easter candy in the white chocolate.

Step Five: Pop the Bunny Bark in the fridge for a few hours or until it is hard. Make sure it's totally hard before cutting. Transfer bark to a cutting board and cut into pieces!
