Easter candy is a tradition in many families and whether you are a long time candy maker or you haven't given it a try yet, you will want to try this easy to make candy. This is our fun twist on making white chocolate Easter bark. In stead of using jelly beans, we tried pairing the white chocolate with peanut butter eggs. It is sooo yummy. In fact, we plan to make two versions ... one with white chocolate and the other with dark chocolate. Chocolate and peanut butter ... what could be better?
This is a wonderful Easter candy that makes a pretty gift.
Making white chocolate bark is quick and easy and the kids will probably want to help. You only need two ingredients. Choose mini candy eggs, these can be peanut butter, malted or jelly beans and the white chocolate chips. We used the large white chocolate chips by Giardelli.
What You Need:
- White Chocolate chips
- Mini Peanut Butter candy eggs
- Microwaveable bowl
- Cookie sheet
- Parchment paper
What To Do:
- Cover your cookie sheet with parchment paper so it is ready to use once your chocolate melts.
- Pour the bag of white chocolate chips into the microwaveable bowl. If your microwave has a "Melt Chocolate" setting use that. If not, put your power to "thaw" or 50% at most. You don't want to burn your chocolate, just melt it. Our chocolate took about 2 minutes to melt but keep an eye on the chocolate if you haven't melted chocolate in the microwave before. You can also opt to use a double boiler or your oven to melt the chocolate.
- As soon as the chocolate is melted, spoon it onto the cookie sheet, into a thin layer about 1/8" to 1/4" thick.
- Press the Easter candies into the chocolate, then pop the cookie sheet into the fridge for only about 2 minutes. This will help the chocolate set much quicker.
- Once completely cooled, break into pieces. That's it!
