Easter Bark: Two Ways (Creme Egg Bark & Jelly Bean Bark)

Easter Jelly Bean Bark

I love Easter.

I love Chocolate.

I love Easter Chocolate!

Heck, let’s be honest, I love any kind of chocolate. Any excuse to chow down on delicious chocolate is a good day in my book.

Toss in some festive holiday candy and it goes beyond love, right into obsession.

I love Creme Eggs.

I love Jelly Beans.

Add those to chocolate bark and it might be time for a restraining order. I may cross over the edge. It’s been known to happen.

I mean look at this stuff. It’s yummy goodness inside more yummy goodness. Who could resist? Not me!

Easter Jelly Bean Bark

This is super easy to make so if you need to whip up something at the last-minute to bring to a family dinner this is perfect. It’s also perfect for using up leftover candy. Or so I’ve heard.

I’ve never actually had any leftover candy.

Easter Bark: Two Ways (Creme Egg Bark & Jelly Bean Bark)

Simple and festive way to use Easter candy to make chocolate bark.

Ingredients

    For the Creme Egg Bark:
  • 8 oz of good quality chocolate
  • 6 mini creme eggs, cut in half
  • For the Jelly Bean Bark:
  • 8 oz good quality chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of mini jelly beans

Instructions

  • In a double boiler, or using a pan with a heat proof glass bowl over top, bring water to a low boil. Add broken up pieces of chocolate to the top portion of your double boiler. Cook over medium low heat until the chocolate melts and is smooth.
  • In the meantime line 2 loaf pans with parchment paper.
  • Once the chocolate is melted pour half into each pan. Spread out evenly.
  • In one pan add the jelly beans to the top.
  • In the other pan add the creme eggs, creme side up.
  • Allow to set in the fridge.
  • Break into pieces.
  • Serve with a big old Easter smile!

Notes

I did not temper my chocolate for two reasons:

I'm lazy!

It gets eaten so quickly it wasn't a big concern!

Use any candy you like. Be creative!

    Well, i never have leftover Easter candy because I don’t celebrate Easter but this does give me a reason to go buy some the day after- or even before. I just think Easter candy is the cutest!

    Chocolate is good stuff! We eat more than just a little around here. ;-) Great looking bark! And is leftover candy even legal? Must be a Canadian thing – it sure isn’t in the US. ;-) Good stuff – thanks.

      Us too. It’s just so yummy. And lol, I have to make it before the family finds the candy or it will never happen.

    Chocolate is the best and I always indulge at this time if year. I indulge a lot of times of the year but don’t tell… Hope you and your fam have a great Easter!

    This made me smile. :) We haven’t had a single Cadbury egg this year but I am off to go find one for Taylor! I can’t have her living a deprived life…

    This bark is really tempting me right now. I think I am in a bit of a chocolate craving phase and perhaps the only way to feed the monster is to tame it!

    I dont care how easy this recipe is. I love it! I do have the regular sized creme eggs leftover, so I may just chop those up. I have a candy bar mold that I can use too!
