I am a candy lover. I really love sweets in general, let’s be honest. Easter candy gets me every single year! I’m not alone in this right, the Easter holiday has the best candy of the year, right? Peeps, Cadbury Creme Eggs, Pastel m&ms (you know they taste better when they’re not regular colored m&ms), even Reese’s eggs are better than regular Reese’s! So what’s a girl to do except take all of that delicious leftover (if you’re lucky) Easter candy and turn it into a dessert by combining all of them and calling it Bunny Bark?
Use your leftover Easter candy to make some fun and delicious bunny bark!
- 8 bars Hershey Chocolate Bars
- 1 cup Candy Melts
- Cadbury Eggs
- Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs
Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper
Break up the chocolate bars into pieces and place in a microwave safe container, microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted
Once melted, pour the chocolate onto your parchment paper and smooth into a nice even layer. You want this to be about 1/4 inch thick.
Clean your microwave safe bowl and then place your candy melts in it, and again, microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted
Once melted, pour the candy melts onto your parchment paper and smooth into a nice even layer. You want this to be about 1/4 inch thick.
Gently drizzle your candy melts onto you chocolate. I drizzled mine all over the chocolate bark and then took a toothpick and made some swirls! Have fun with it!
Immediately add your candy! I started with the bigger pieces first, be sure to add as much of your favorites as possible, because that’s what you’re going to go for when you eat this deliciousness.
Once you’ve added all your candy, add some sprinkles, then place your baking sheet in the freezer to let it chill.
After the bark has hardened you can remove it from the freezer, take a knife and cut that delicious bunny bark up! Save any extras in an airtight container or zip-lock bag and store in the fridge so it doesn’t melt.
These are my favorite Easter candies so that’s what I used, but mix it up and use whatever you love the most!
I hope you guys enjoy this fun recipe. It’s totally not rocket science but things like this make me smile, and I know if you have kids they would LOVE to help you make this! Get them involved and have them help you pick out candies at the store. If you don’t want all the extra sugar around your house you can always get little Easter baggies to put some of your Bunny Bark in and deliver it to neighbors, teachers, or other family members.
What’s your favorite type of Easter candy? I’d love to know! #cadburycremesallday
