How Do I Make Easter Bark?

Easter Bark involves smoothly melting chocolate and pouring onto a baking sheet. Then the fun begins by putting on the bunny decorations and sprinkles. To make bunny ears, simply cut white candy melts into halves.

Next, chill for an hour or more to let the chocolate harden. Then you can either cut into pieces using a sharp knife or break it up using your hands.

If you’re using it for gifts, you can wrap in cellophane for an attractive look. Just keep it cool at all times to avoid smudges.

  • Chocolate: For the chocolate, I always recommend using baking chocolate brands such as Baker's or Ghirardelli. In a pinch you can use chocolate chips although they do not melt or pour very well.
  • Make Ahead: You can store bark in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week, or in the freezer for 3 months.
