DIY EASTER CHOCOLATE BARK

I wanted to cook or bake something for Easter to share with you, but when I went looking for inspiration, my thoughts kept coming back to chocolate bark, as it’s such a fun, colourful and easy recipe. Instead of an Easter egg this year, why not give friends and family some shards of this pretty and yummy treat.

Start by preparing a baking tray by lining it with a sheet of foil. This makes it easier to lift the hard chocolate bark out of the tray, without it sticking. Next, break up the white chocolate into squares into a cooking bowl, and empty out the candy melts into seperate cooking bowls too. Boil your kettle and fill a large pot on the hob of your cooker with one third of boiling water, then place the white chocolate bowl on top. Stir until this melts, then pour into the foiled tray. Use a spatula to spread the melted white chocolate out evenly across the tray.

Now it’s time to melt the blue candy melts, and then the pink candy melts, the same way. When each is melted, use a spatula to mix and marble each colour into the white chocolate tray.

The final stages are the fun part! Take your Mini Eggs, Golden Eggs and cut-in-half Creme Eggs, and lay them out evenly across the melted marbled chocolate on the tray. Sprinkle over some of the yellow glitter and the sprinkles, and you are ready to put it in the fridge for a few hours to harden.

When you’ve checked that the chocolate bark is hard, remove it from the fridge and lift the foil from the tray. Start to smash up or randomly break the chocolate slab until you have shards of different shapes and sizes. Wrap some of these up to make lovely Easter gifts for friends and family.
