Happy Holy Week, everybody! I know this week for many people means Spring Break, maybe a day off of work, Easter Egg Hunts, photos with the Easter Bunny, and lots of other fun stuff. But I hope that we never lose sight of what Easter is really about: an empty tomb and a risen Savior who has conquered death! Good Friday and Easter always make me reflect on the sacrifice Christ made for me, and I am just so unworthy.
The good people over at Chocoley sent me some of their awesome products for this recipe! I got the Bada Bing Bada Boom Candy & Molding White Chocolate. And the blue, green, and violet coloring oils. Y’all, they call their employees Oompas and their CEO is the “chief taster”. How cute is that?!
If you’re thinking about a simple Easter treat to make with your kids, this one is perfect! It’s so simple there’s only 2 ingredients: chocolate and candy! And the fun swirled food coloring is so pretty! Plus, there’s no baking, and this firms up in the fridge after only about a half hour. What I really love about this recipe is that it allows you to be super creative! Choose whatever colors, candies, and sprinkles you want! You could even throw in some salty pretzel sticks or crunchy rice crispy cereal to the chocolate if you want. So go crazy!
- Wax Paper
- 2 lbs of white melting chocolate
- Food coloring of your choice
- Candy/toppings of your choice (I used M&M eggs)
- Tear a sheet of wax paper and place it on a large baking pan.
- Separate your white chocolate into microwave safe bowls for however many colors you'll be making. I had 4 bowls total for white, blue, green, and violet.
- Microwave each bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until chocolate is totally melted.
- Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl to make it the desired color. (Just leave one bowl white)
- Going one color at a time, drop the melted chocolate in dollops on the wax paper sheet. The blobs should touch one another, but not lay on top of one another. You want to cover an area about the size of a 10x14 rectangle.
- Take a butter knife and gently swirl the colors together. Do not mix and blend the colors.
- Immediately sprinkle on toppings like sprinkles and candy.
- Place pan in refrigerator and allow to set for 20-30 minutes.
- Once firm, use a sharp knife to break bark into pieces.
