Easter bunny bark! How cute right?
Here are the reasons you NEED to make some chocolate bark: It’s easy, cost effective, it takes minutes to make, it’s cute and looks impressive packaged up as gifts. Oh, and its chocolate, need i say more!!
I have used white chocolate in this recipe as I wanted to make the chocolate pink, you, however, could use any colour/ colours you wish and swirl as many colours together as your heart desires. Alternatively, the bunnies would look great placed on top of dark chocolate.
You may remember my obsession with all things chocolate bark. It is totally my go-to dessert. Remember the Cake Batter Bark? or how about the Banoffee Bark all delicious and make great gifts. I have said it before and will say it again chocolate bark is so versatile, you can make hundreds of combos and anything goes.
To make Easter bunny bark start off by making the bunnies. For this, you will need some giant chocolate buttons. I have used the large Milky Bar Buttons for this. Draw dots for the eyes on milk button with an edible black pen. Then draw a dot for a nose with an edible pink pen. You’ll need about 7 bunny faces in total. Then, using a sharp knife cut one of the buttons in half to make ears. You’ll get a good bit of breakage, but you should get one ear per button.
- 200g White Chocolate
- Few drops of food colouring of your choice.
- 120g pack of giant white chocolate Buttons
- Edible black and red pen
- Sprinkles of your choice
- Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Melt the 200g bar of white chocolate either in the microwave or on the stove using a double boiler.
- Next if you want white and pink swirls pour a little of the white chocolate into a bowl and set aside.
- Add a few drops of food colouring to the remaining white chocolate and stir until the mix is pink/ colour of your choice.
- Next pour the pink mix on the the lined tray and spread out using your spatular. Yes its meant to look like a blob of chocolate and won't cover the entire tray.
- Immediately pour the remaining white chocolate over the pink mix and using a knife swirl the mixture to form swirled chocolate patterns.
- Immediately press your bunny faces and ears into the chocolate and sprinkle with the sprinkles. Let the chocolate set a bit (about 25 minutes) and score lines with a knife. Let the chocolate fully set before carefully breaking apart.
- Enjoy 🙂
