Easter Bark |

This year for Easter I am making 'Easter Bark' to take home as a treat for the family.

It is SO simple to make and so yummy to eat
It also looks really cute too:

- Choose several colours of chocolate wafers from the Bulk Barn
* Yeild: About 15 wafers of 3 different colours will make one batch which equals a cookie sheet size or approx 12 pieces of bark

- Melt each colour one at a time in the microwave.

- Line a baking sheet with wax paper and spoon out the melted chocolate into various areas of the pan (i.e. separate the one colour onto several areas of the pan so that it is not all in one spot - this will make it easier to swirl the colours together and will make it look prettier).

- Once you have poured each colour onto the pan tap the pan on the counter top to draw all the colours together (and to get the air bubbles out).

- With a toothpick or a knife swirl the colours together in a pretty pattern.

- Drop in Easter coloured smarties, or mini eggs etc. for an added treat.

- Cool in fridge for 10mins or until firm.

- Break the bark apart into small pieces.

- Ready to serve - the chocolate pieces look cute displayed in a egg carton with some basket stuffing or in an Easter basket.

Photos of how mine turned out:

  9. You can find the chocolate wafers at almost any craft supply store(JoAnn's, Michael's, etc.)in the baking supply section and in some larger grocery stores usually near the bulk candy section. They come in a variety of colors and are usually vanilla or white chocolate flavor. Sometimes they are called melting chocolate. Hope this helps.

  11. I'm confused. if you melt them each one at a time will they harden before you mix them all together? thanks!

  12. Can you use almond bark and food coloring?

  13. Please note: THIS IS NOT CHOCOLATE! Look at the ingredients on the Merckens website. It's a bunch of oils and artificial crap. I'd use real white chocolate and some natural food dyes.
