Lot 48: easter bark

easter bark

if you know me at all, you know that i don't like cooking. so this is very, very rare that i will share a recipe. but this is too good not to share! so here is a super easy and yummy treat to make tomorrow for Easter! i am SURE you have all the ingredients at your house as we are all stocked up with lots of unhealthy things at the moment.  so here we go!!


you can really make this your own and put whatever you want on this bark, but i will list what we chose.

1 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips
1 12 oz bag of white chocolate chips
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
as many mini m&ms as you want
tiny colored marshmallows
egg malts
parchment paper
a freezer
a cookie sheet

Step 1:  First in a mixing bowl, melt the entire bag of milk chocolate chips. heat for 30 seconds. take out and stir.  put chocolate back in the microwave for 30 seconds. take out and stir  in the tbsp of vegetable oil. this prevents the chocolate from sticking and it all being a big mess. put the chocolate back in for 30 seconds, take out and stir again. you can skip that last interval of heating if you feel the chocolate is melted enough. do the same thing in a separate bowl with the white chocolate chips.  

Step 2:  Put parchment paper on the cookie sheet.  i swirled the white and milk chocolate on the sheet so i poured the milk chocolate first and then i poured the white chocolate on top. then i took a spoon and swirled it.  

Step 3: now the fun part! put the candies on top! we cut some of the egg malts in half, that gave it a nice look.  then we just kind of threw on the m&ms and the marshmallows.  put on whatever you want! be daring! no rules!

Step 4:  put the cookie sheet in the freezer!! leave it in there for about 20 minutes for it to really really melt.  

Step 5:  don't try to cut up the bark once you get it out the freezer.  what works really well is to just break it, just like normal bark.  I broke it into pieces and put it in a ziploc baggie so it would stay fresh in the freezer.  

enjoy!

  1. This looks so yummy! I'm a terrible cook myself (as in my, my friends were shocked I knew how to make an omelette), but this sounds relatively easy, and I've got a few bake sales coming up for my campus literary magazine...
    Thanks for sharing the recipe!
