In this post, I’ll show you how to make this easy treat, give you some tips and tricks for making it, and let you in on how you can mix this recipe up for other holiday, too.
What are Cadbury Mini Eggs?
Cadbury Mini Eggs are egg-shaped, Easter-themed candy. The eggs are about an inch long and are eaten by the handful. They’re candy-coated with a milk chocolate center and come in a mixed bag of pastel colors. You can buy Mini Eggs all year long, but they’re more prominently purchased and enjoyed at Easter time.
How do I make Cadbury Mini Egg Bark?
Making this Mini Egg dessert is simple. You melt your white chocolate, then portion it into four bowls. In three of the bowls, you’ll mix in different food colors, and in the fourth, you’ll keep your chocolate as-is. Spread your chocolate across a parchment lined sheet pan, then swirl in your colors. Top the entire dessert with pretzels, sprinkles, and chopped up mini eggs. Allow the entire dessert to harden, then break the bark into pieces.
Tips and Recipe Notes
- Melt your chocolate slowly. You can melt it in the microwave, but melt it in 15-30 second intervals. When it’s almost fully melted and there are just a few chocolate chunks left in your bowl, stir until they’re finished melting.
- To chop up your Mini Eggs, put them in a Ziploc and press down with a rolling pin. You can also use a meat mallet to gently hammer them apart.
- Make sure you use parchment on your cookie sheet. It’s really difficult to lift the bark off the cookie sheet without parchment. Cooking spray doesn’t really do the trick for this recipe, so if you don’t have parchment, I recommend you stop making this, run up to the store to get some, then start again.
Ingredient Substitutions for Easter Bark
- White Chocolate – You can use white almond bark if you prefer. You can also use milk chocolate, but you won’t be able to add in the food color swirls.
- Sprinkles – You can use any kind of sprinkle you want in this recipe.
- Other toppings – You can top this Easter Bark recipe with mini marshmallows (the pastel ones look pretty), candy, crushed cookies, white chocolate chips… be creative!
To make this recipe work for other holidays, you can still use Mini Eggs and white chocolate, or you can swap them out for holiday-themed candies and other types of chocolate. Here are some ideas:
For Christmas Bark, swirl with red and green food color and top with Christmas sprinkles.
For Hallowe’en Bark, swirl with orange food color and sprinkle with orange and black sprinkles and orange M&Ms.
For the 4th of July, swirl with red and blue food color and sprinkle with silver sprinkles or glittery coarse sugar.
For St. Patrick’s Day, try my Lucky Charms Bark – it’s just as simple and super delicious!
Be creative and make this recipe for all kinds of holidays and celebrations!
