The countdown to Easter is on! If you’re looking for a speedy holiday treat, this dreamy Easy White Chocolate Easter Bark can be whipped up in no time!!
Easy White Chocolate Easter Bark
This Easter bark is such a ridiculously simple recipe. It’s ideal for a last minute treat when time is tight or a fun project for your children or grandchildren. Just pick up a bag of your favorite Easter candy, like pastel M & M’s or mini Robin Eggs along with some festive sprinkles.
I always have a stash of Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bars, which melt perfectly in the microwave, to make the base for this bark. And if you have any leftovers a Raspberry White Chocolate Loaf Cake would be a lovely dessert! I do love my white chocolate!
How to Make White Chocolate Bark
This white chocolate bark basically an alternative version of my peppermint bark, which I do need to share with you all before Christmas. Peppermint extract and crushed candy canes are mixed into the melted white chocolate for a holiday favorite of my children.
- All you need is are THREE ingredients. So there’s really no excuse not to make this easy candy.
- Your children can definitely help. An adult can spread the hot melted chocolate onto a lined baking sheet, and the younger folks can help sprinkle the candies over the surface.
- I like using a decent quality white chocolate bar instead of white chocolate chips. The bars melt more easily, but chocolate chips can be used in a pinch.
- I like to use an offset spatula to spread out the melted chocolate onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
- Parchment paper helps with easy cleanup as the candy doesn’t even touch the pan. And there’s no sticking.
- As for the candies and sprinkles, I just walked through the Target aisles and looked for small pastel Easter candies and seasonal sprinkles that would look good together.
- Adding chopped dried fruit and nuts is another delicious option, especially if you’re serving this to adults.
- For this easy white chocolate Easter bark, feel free to add some extract, but I kept mine plain.
