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.

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!

      Thanks Jennifer. So glad I’m not the only candy junkie in the bunch. It’s so good. I love bark, it’s just fun and easy.

    Chocolate is good stuff! We eat more than just a little around here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Great looking bark! And is leftover candy even legal? Must be a Canadian thing – it sure isn’t in the US. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!

      Lol, you crack me up. We had a good weekend thus far. Dinner tomorrow. Ham and roast beef, going to make a complete pig of myself I’m sure.

    Holy .. Ham AND roast beef .. You energetic little thing you .. We did turkey, but on Friday cause that’s when family were here. Enjoy!

    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!
