Chocolate Bark made with Easter candy is one of my favorite Easter treats. You only need three ingredients to make this Easter Bark, and you can decorate it with sprinkles, mini chocolate eggs, or other Easter candy. It’s so fun and cute – perfect for Easter baskets!

Easy Easter Candy Bark

I love to make chocolate bark because it’s so easy to do, and it keeps really well, so it’s great for parties, holidays, and gifting. I will find any excuse to make a batch all through the year, and Easter is the perfect reason to make a batch.

This is super cute candy bark and just screams spring! I used my favorite Easter candies along with pastel sprinkles, and chocolate – the Easter bunny would approve.

This so easy the kiddos can make it – all you need to do is melt the chocolate and prepare the candy. Let them help sprinkle the eggs and sprinkles over the top for a fun activity.

Ingredients for Easter Candy Bark

  • Chocolate – I prefer to use chocolate melting wafers (my favorite is Ghiradelli brand). You can use semi-sweet chocolate or even white chocolate chips – use your favorite.
  • Mini eggs – some left whole, some roughly chopped
  • Sprinkles – Easter-themed sprinkles

How to Make Easter Candy Bark

  • Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper
  • Melt chocolate in the microwave for one minute and then stir. Microwave it in additional 30 second intervals until the candy is completely melted and smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Sprinkle the whole and chopped eggs over the top, followed by the sprinkles.
  • Chill the bark for an hour or until it is set. Break it into pieces and keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

What Kind of Chocolate is Best for Candy?

Use good quality chocolate for this recipe, and be sure to use one that melts well. You have a few choices for what kind to use:

  • Melting Wafers – these are sold in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. Ghiradelli is the best tasting brand. They’re made specifically for melting, so they shouldn’t give you any trouble. They also come in white or chocolate flavors.
  • Almond Bark or Candiquik – these are also found in the baking aisle. They are formulated for melting and come in white and chocolate flavors. Candiquik tastes better than Almond Bark.
  • Chocolate Callets – If you can find them, you can also use chocolate callets which are chips that are formulated for melting.
  • Candy Melts – these are the melts you find in the craft stores and they come in all sorts of fun colors. They would be pretty in this bark but they don’t taste as good as real chocolate (even the chocolate “flavor” isn’t as good).
  • Skip the chocolate chips for this recipe – they don’t work as well. In a pinch you can use them but they aren’t formulated for candy so they’ll melt to the touch.

Tip From Dorothy

Tips for the Best Chocolate Bark

  • Do a mix of chocolate like milk, semi-sweet, or even white chocolate.
  • For the eggs, try using chocolate eggs like Cadbury mini eggs, or you can use mini malted eggs – they look like robin’s eggs.
  • Look for Easter sprinkles on Amazon or at Target, Walmart, or even craft stores. There’s usually a lot of options.

How long does chocolate bark last?

This is one thing that doesn’t go bad quickly – store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks!

My chocolate won’t melt!

Chocolate can be finicky, which is why I like using melting wafers for this – they’re formulated to melt. Make sure you’re melting at 50% power in the microwave and stirring often so there aren’t any hot spots. In a pinch, if they don’t seem to be melting, add 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or shortening to them. That seems to help them melt easier.

Why does chocolate seize?

If your chocolate gets all clumpy and isn’t smooth, then that means it’s seized. That happens when it gets too hot or if water gets into the mixture. Be sure your bowl and spatula are completely dry so no water gets in and be sure to stir often while melting so it doesn’t get any hot spots.

How to fix chocolate that has seized:

Sometimes you can save seized chocolate. Add 1 teaspoon boiling water to the clumpy mess and stir vigorously to try and melt the fats that have clumped together. Hopefully the chocolate will smooth out.
