Easter Treats

Getting in to the spirit of Easter, I wanted to share an easy and inexpensive treat idea for Easter that is an easy recipe to make with young ones, and a tasty indulgence for both kids and adults to enjoy over the break.

Easter Chocolate Bark

Step One

Line a tray with baking paper and pour melted chocolate of your choice, spreading it around until the slab is about 1cm thick. I chose a mixture of milk, dark and white chocolate. Don’t worry about getting chocolate all the way to the edges of the tray, a bit of mess is ok:

Here’s the fun part! Decorate the melted chocolate with your choice of ‘topping’. I chose crunchy m&m’s (that look like easter eggs), sliced up bounty bar and sprinkles. I then topped it off with splashes of melted white chocolate. Place the chocolate slab/tray in the fridge for over 4 hours, until the chocolate concoction is set, rock hard:

Step Three
Break up the chocolate in to ‘bark’ pieces with a knife. You should be able to pierce the slab with the tip of the knife, allowing the cracking to happen naturally, giving you a much nicer finish than actual slicing:

Step Four
I packaged the chocolate bark in to striped paper bags I purchased from a $2 shop. I made the bunny ear shape by simply cutting the shape with scissors and securing the top of each scrunched bag with some bakers twine. Seriously, too easy:

Enjoy – and make sure you let me know if you make this at home, would love to see how your version turns out!

    Hi Briar,

    Just wondering how many blocks of chocolate you used to make that portion? Shopping for my ingredients tonight!

      Hi Hayley, I used 2 block of chocolate and two 400g bags of button melts (one white, one milk). If you just want to use blocks of chocolate, I’d go for 4 or 5.
      Enjoy!
