A Sweet Treat for the Easter Bunny: A Simple Chocolate Bark Recipe

A Sweet Treat for the Easter Bunny: A Simple Chocolate Bark Recipe

Yes, we know that bunnies like carrots. But do they only want carrots? Because if you were the Easter Bunny, wouldn’t you want something to give you a little more hop in your step? And since rabbits eat bark, we thought it was time to start a new tradition for the Easter Bunny. This simple and spring-infused chocolate bark is a perfect simple, no-bake recipe to keep your little bunnies busy before their baskets get dropped. We have given a simple framework for how to make the chocolate bark but the toppings can be added to or recreated so that each bark recipe is as unique as your child. Have fun and enjoy munching on this sweet treat! We know the Easter Bunny will thank you!

According to chocolate bark expert, Abby Michalski, “You don’t need a recipe, or even to measure any ingredients, to make gorgeous chocolate bark – it’s about getting creative and using your favorite flavors and textures.” This recipe could also come in handy after the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts when you are stuck with all kinds of leftover half-eaten chocolate bunnies. Because you can use whatever chocolate you have on hand and then top your bark with things like nuts and seeds for added crunch. Pistachios add a nice splash of color as do dried fruits, such as raisins, currants, cherries, chopped dates, figs, apricots, or finely sliced mango. But since it is the Easter season, we decided to make an Easter/Spring themed bark with all of the Easter candy fixings.

Making Your Bark 

You will need:

  • 24 ounces of chocolate (white, dark, semi-sweet, leftover chocolate bunnies, whatever!)
  • Your favorite easter bark toppings
  • A double boiler
  • A baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Instructions

Step 1: Get all your ingredients together! If you are decorating with little ones, get your ingredients into bowls for easy grabbing. Bring water to a boil in the bottom of a double boiler. Break your chocolate into the top part of the double boiler. Stir with a spoon or spatula until smooth and completely melted.

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with parchment. Pour the melted chocolate onto your lined tray and spread evenly using a spatula. You can make it as thin as you like.

Step 3: While the chocolate is still soft, add your toppings. Be creative! Transfer to the fridge for a couple of hours to cool.
