We challenge anyone to eat as much chocolate as us this Easter, but even we sometimes bite off more than we can chew. That’s why we have this chocolate bark recipe to hand.
Easter egg hunts are all well and good, but there’s only so much that can be eaten over Easter weekend. So what to do with all the chocolate? This recipe for chocolate bark using Easter eggs is a really easy way to be a little creative and probably offers another excuse to break open the chocolate!
Easter Eggs Chocolate Bark Recipe
500g chocolate – dark, white, milk
Selection of mini eggs, sweets, pretzels, marshmallows
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. It’s a safer bet to do this rather than use the microwave. If you want to create swirl effects, melt white chocolate separately. Try not to stir too much as it will seize up. This is especially the case with white chocolate.
Once melted spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. If you have melted different types of chocolate, drop blobs and use a cocktail stick to make swirls or patterns.
Add pretzels, mini eggs or other treats on top.
Leave to set at room temperature and then break into shards.
Hide some for you before sharing with the children!
The Co-op also has this sweet traybake to help use up those pesky eggs!
