Show stopping Chocolate Easter Bark (with HOW TO VIDEO!). Super simple and easy to make, topped with candy eggs, chocolates, mini MaltEaster bunnies and sprinkles, this is a no bake, must make for Easter.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I bloomin’ love Easter. It’s all the good things of a celebration (time with loved ones and delicious food) without any of the pressures (present buying and pleasing everyone).
Whether you’re religious or not, that feeling of spring in the air is just around the corner and what better way to mark such an occasion that with brightly coloured chocolate?! (Just me?)
The lovely team at Pinterest UK have teamed up with Comic Relief this year to try and share as many ideas for fundraising through baking as possible. They asked me to come up with something super simple and impressive and here it is.
I know I know, technically this isn’t a charity *bake* but I still think it would go down brilliantly at a bake sale don’t you? Packaged up in pretty cellophane bags with some ribbon?
It’s so easy that even the busiest of us could manage a batch or two of this for a bake sale. Go on, you know you want to!

Tips for making the Easter Bark:
- You can buy Candy Melts easily on eBay or Amazon (Rainbow Dust Candy Melts 3 Colours – eBay)
- Be very careful to melt all of the chocolate/candy melts very slowly, in a bowl resting over a pan of just bubbling water.
- Make sure that the pan is not touching the water.
- If the candy melts are too thick, add a few drops of cooking vegetable oil to thin them a little.
- If you’re going to be making batches of this, it’s worth buying quality chocolate in bulk. I use this Callebut White Chocolate form Amazon. It works out about the same price gram for gram as regular chocolate, but as you’re buying in bulk you get better value as it’s MUCH better quality. You can really tell the difference when you pour it.
- Be sure to pour onto baking parchment so that the bark peels off easily.
What I used to make the Easter Bark:
If you’re looking for similar sprinkles, I LOVE this Unicorn Sprinkle Mix from BakesBox. Have you ever seen such glorious sprinkles?!
