I love a good bark y’all. I had no plans for Easter, and expected to spend all day watch PLL re-runs, and try and figure out what on Earth is going on in Rosewood. Then, my boyfriend pops up and says they are having a get together at his family’s home….who I have never met. Raised in the South, I know you cannot go to someone’s house without some sort of thing in hand for the host. Making barks is something I have done for many years, and I found this adorable and delicious recipe on pinterest, and naturally, I tweaked it a little bit to fit who I am. This is insanely easy, and took me a total of around fifteen minutes. So you still have time to get this done!
1 pack of white chocolate (baking aisle)
1 pack of semi sweet morsels (morsels melt way better)
1 jar of your choice of sprinkles
1 pack of mini cadbury eggs (or a bunch of little ones)
1 bag of pretzel sticks
food coloring (not pictured)
wax paper (not pictured)
baking sheet/casserole dish (not pictured)
things to mix with (not pictured)
microwave (not pictured)
Alright, let’s get into the mess.
How to do it:
I separated my white chocolate into four different microwavable containers since I knew I was going to color the chocolate after it had been melted down. I microwaved each container for a 1 1/2 minutes, and made sure to constantly stir to ensure that it was melting evenly. Color as desired. Pour all chocolate into a wax paper lined vessel, and slightly swirl to combine colors. While the chocolate is still warm, place your sprinkles, eggs, and pretzel sticks into the mixture. To add some extra flair, I melted down the chocolate morsels, threw them into a piping bag, and did a thin drizzle across the top (it helps hold down all of the yummy things you just threw on top!). If you have time, throw this baby into the freezer for two hours, I left mine overnight though. If you are in a rush, put it in the freezer for about an hour. After it is hard, just slam it with something heavy to break it into uneven chunks, put on a plate, and serve it up!
Hope you guys have a great day, and eat lots of candy! If you do this recipe, or have a favorite bark recipe, let me know! I am always looking for new recipes.
