I LOVE SPRING! Winter seems to drag on longer and longer each year so at the first glimpse of a flower in bloom I literally lose my mind with excitement. A few weeks ago I shared an easy spring craft with you so I figured I might as well share an easy spring RECIPE with you as well!
This recipe is an explosion of everything that is good in the world: color, texture and sweets. The star of the show are the pretty pastels of the spring M&M’S® Milk Chocolate that I picked up at Walmart. Ladies and gentlemen (okay who are we kidding, this is probably just ladies!) I present to you… Bunny Bark!
- 24 oz white candy melts
- 8 squares white chocolate melts, divided in 2
- Food coloring
- 1/4 cup mini marshmallows
- 1/4 cup M&M’S® Milk Chocolate
- Small cake pan or tray lined with tinfoil
Gather all of your supplies and make sure to take a cute picture, then follow these simple instructions.
ONE // Melt the candy melts according to package. Usually that is microwaving for a minute, stirring, and then microwaving for 10-15 seconds and stirring in-between to make sure all of the melts are melted but not burned.
TWO // Pour the candy melts into the pan/tray and spread out evenly with a spatula.
THREE // As quick as possible (or after you’ve finished step 1 and while you move on to step 2, if you have a helper) melt the 8 squares of white chocolate melts, stirring in whatever food colors you’ve decided on (I chose pink and green).
FOUR // Pour the colored chocolate melts on top of the candy melts in the pan, using a knife to swirl the colors all around. You’ll want to do this as quickly as possible so that the base layer of candy melts doesn’t harden.
FIVE // Pour on all the garnishes – the marshmallows, sprinkles and of course the M&M’S® Milk Chocolate. Spread them out, and press the bigger treats into the candy melts. I didn’t do this, and wished I had.
SIX // Freeze for an hour, then pull the tray out and begin breaking the bark into smaller pieces. Enjoy. Give away to all your friends!
I picked up a pack of M&M’S® Milk Chocolate in bright spring colors from Walmart, and while I was there I picked up the MARS Variety Bag to give to Justen’s co-workers; full of everyone’s favorite chocolates, the MARS Variety Bag is perfect for Eastering – baskets and hunts. Walmart is the place to go for Easter needs, whether it’s building an Easter basket or filling eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt.
