Easter is almost here, and that means it's time for all the delicious sweet treats! If you're looking for an easy yet impressive dessert to make, this Easter Bark is just the thing. It's fun, festive, and so simple to whip up.

With its pastel colors and crunchy toppings, this chocolate bark is the perfect Easter treat. White chocolate forms the base, swirled with pretty shades of pink and purple. On top, you'll find all the classics - Cadbury mini eggs, mini marshmallows, and tons of Easter sprinkles.

What I like about this Easter Bark recipe is how quick it is to make. Just a few minutes in the oven to melt the chocolate, then you swirl and top it before letting it set. In almost no time at all, you have a treat that's perfect for Easter.

Need an Easter gift idea? Homemade candy and chocolate bark make festive, edible gifts as well. I like to break this Easter Bark into pieces and package it in cellophane bags or boxes. You could even make it for favors at a spring wedding or baby shower.

The pretty pastel colors and satisfying crunch from the toppings make it a delicious sweet treat. 

Ingredient Notes

See the printable recipe card below for all ingredients, specific measurements, and complete instructions.

Ingredients to make Easter Bark set out on the counter.
  • White Chocolate Bars - You'll need 4 bars total.
  • Gel-Based Food Coloring - I used pink and purple food coloring to make the white chocolate into pink and purple chocolate! Be sure you are using a gel-based as the water-based will be too runny. 
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs - These Easter candies add a perfect crunch and pop of color on top of the bark.
  • Mini Marshmallows - For a chewy texture contrast, I added mini marshmallows to the top! 
  • Easter Sprinkles - To make it really festive! Look for egg-shaped sprinkles or pastel colors like pink, yellow, blue. 
  • Edible Glitter (optional) - For an extra sparkly touch! Use a fine edible glitter made for baking.

How To Make Easter Bark

Preheat your oven to 175°F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. This will make for easy removal later.

If you are using food coloring to make your white chocolate into pink and purple chocolate, just melt the white chocolate, add a drop of food coloring, and spread it into a chocolate bar mold. Once set, remove the bars from the molds and you have pastel chocolate!

Next, place the chocolate bars on the prepared baking sheet - 2 pink bars on one side, 2 purple on the other.

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. This low, gentle heat will slowly melt the chocolate bars into pools.

Once the 10 minutes is up, carefully remove the hot baking sheet from the oven. Use an offset spatula to spread and combine the melted chocolates, creating a swirled design. Work relatively quickly before it sets.

While the chocolate is still wet, immediately sprinkle your toppings all over in an even layer - the Cadbury eggs, mini marshmallows, and Easter sprinkles. If using edible glitter, add that now too.

Allow the Easter bark to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes until fully set and hardened.

Once set, carefully peel the entire chocolate sheet off of the parchment paper. Use your hands to break it into uneven pieces of bark. The bark is ready to eat immediately!

How To Store Candy Bark

The bark can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week. For longer storage, refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

To maintain the crunch, it's best not to freeze the bark. The toppings may get soggy once thawed.

Easter Bark Variations

  • Use a different chocolate. Milk chocolate or dark chocolate would both make beautiful Easter bark, and they will still be colorful, thanks to the toppings!
  • Change up the candy. Top with other Easter candies like jelly beans, Peeps, chocolate eggs or bunnies.
  • Skip the food coloring. These pieces of Easter bark would be lovely with a smooth white base, so feel free to skip the food coloring!

Recipe Tips

  • Use good quality white chocolate bars or baking chocolate for the base. Candy melts or chocolate chips won't give you the same smooth, glossy finish.
  • Make sure to temper the chocolate properly by heating it slowly and gently to the right temperature. This will prevent blooming (white streaks) in the final bark.
  • Work quickly when swirling the melted chocolate and adding toppings before it starts to set.
  • Use gel food colorings rather than liquid to tint the white chocolate. Liquid can cause seizing.

To make your own chocolate bars, simply melt white chocolate, add a drop of food
coloring, and spread it into a chocolate bar mold. Once set, remove the bar from the
chocolate bar mold!
You can use any color of food coloring for this bark; make sure you are using a
GEL-based food coloring and not water-based. Water-based will be too runny and will
cause issues with your chocolate.
