Happy almost Easter and Good Friday! 🙂 So after sharing with you my roundup of over 40 Easter desserts, I got inspired to make one last quick one this week.
I just seriously love how easy candy bark is, and how customizable it is to the holidays. Like my Candy Cane Marshmallow Bark for Christmas. I remember when I made that bark recipe, I kept thinking I should have added Oreos! Seriously, been kinda obsessed with Oreos lately. Like these Mint Oreo Stuffed Bailey’s Chocolate cupcakes for St. Patrick’s day. Did you catch those? Oh my word. It should be wrong to stuff an Oreo in a cupcake. But I’m so glad it is isn’t. That’s not a world I want to live in if it is.
So when I saw these Spring Oreos on the shelves I got inspired to do one last Easter treat for you all. And in less than a half hour, I had an entire pan of white chocolate and pastel bark staring at me.
Oh hello pretty Easter chocolate bark.
Chocolate Candy Bark couldn’t be easier. You can use any kind of chocolate you want- I stuck to white chocolate only this time. But you could use milk, dark, white- or a combination of both.
Pro Tip: If you decide to use more than one kind of chocolate allow the first layer to cool in your fridge for 20 minutes before pouring your next layer over. Any longer and your risk the layers separating on you.
Let’s talk about melting this chocolate down shall we? Two methods- stove or microwave. I’ve done both. Really just depends on your mood. White chocolate I find melts much faster than its chocolate cousins. I opted for sticking this on a double boiler on the stove, and over medium heat it was melted in less than a minute. So do not walk away. I repeat, do not walk away.
Then it’s time to pour onto your cookie sheet. I highly recommend in using a silicone baking mat. It really does work better for this situation. I adore my silicone baking mats- and love that it came in a set of 2. I use them all the time. And I mean all the time.
Now of course comes the fun part.
Candy. And since it’s Easter- all the pretty pastel candy. Let’s meet the contestants….
Meet pastel colored M&M’s…(seriously, why are these so much better than the regular ones?)
And she only comes around for a limited time..Cadbury Mini Eggs (raise your hand if you eat WAY too many of these during the Easter season)
And the star of the show…OREOS…all decked out for Easter (just break them up into pieces with your hands)
That’s it- 4 ingredients for this Easter Oreo Candy Bark..
Just give them a quick smoosh into the melted white chocolate and you’re done!
Of course, I mean you have to wait around until it sets up. Then its time for the fun part.
Breaking up the candy bark!
No rhyme or reason here folks- just get in there with your hands and break up into whatever sized pieces you want.
This would be such a fun treat to bring to an Easter dinner. Trust me, everyone will sneak a piece!
Now I don’t always end with a question- but I’m curious what kind of bark recipe would you like to see here next on Boston Girl Bakes? Leave me a comment and let me know, I’d love to hear from you!
And as always, don’t forget to follow me on social media:
To make this recipe you will need:
Easter Oreo Candy Bark
- 12 ounces good quality white chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup M&M's
- 1/4 cup Cadbury mini eggs
- 5-6 Oreos broken in small pieces
1. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
2. In a double boiler- add your white chocolate chips. Stir until melted. If you use the microwave- place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals. Be sure to stir in between each interval. Be careful and do in short bursts- white chocolate burns faster than milk or dark chocolate.
3. With a spatula spread the white chocolate onto your baking mat. Top with the candies and cookies, giving a slight press into the chocolate. Allow the bark to harden completely. Break into small pieces and enjoy!
This recipe is totally customizable of course! You can add more of any candy you like, or less, or completely leave one out. It's up to you. You could also use milk or dark chocolate instead. Or layer different types of chocolate. If you do decide to layer- spread the first layer on your mat. Referigerate for 20 minutes before spreading the second layer on.
