How To Make the Bunny Bark 

Get the full recipe in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  1. Gather all of your ingredients. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set it to one side until you are ready to use it. 
  2. Place the pink candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl and melt them in 30-second increments. Do this until they are mostly melted. Make sure you stir the candy melts each time. If you find that the candy melts are not melting as smooth as you would like check out the tips below to help. Continue to stir until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.  Now spread the melted pink candy melts onto the prepared sheet. You want a layer of ¼ inch thick. 
  3. Cut 17 of the bright white candy melts in half. Then place 17 of the whole circle of white candy melts on the melted chocolate. Leave enough space between the circles for the candy melt halves that will become the bunny ears. 
  4. Scatter the colored or Easter sprinkles on top of the melted candy bark.
  5. Now place the 6 remaining white candy melts into a piping bag. Melt for 30 seconds, and knead the bag with your hand. Then microwave again if you think it needs it, and continue to knead until fully melted. 
  6. Cut the tip off the piping bag to create a small hole. Then pipe a small dab of white chocolate on the bottom of the bunny and add a sugar pearl to each bunny. Check out the pictures if you are unsure how it should look. 
  7. Place the completed Easter chocolate bark into the refrigerator to set. You will need to give it around 25-30 minutes. Once set, cut them with a sharp knife so that each piece has a full bunny ears and tail. Enjoy as an easy dessert or a sweet delicious snack.

Recipe Variations

Can't get any pastel-colored candy melts? Don't worry! You could use white candy melts or white chocolate chips and then add a few drops of food coloring to get the desired color. 

Want to use other candies to make the bunnies? You could use mini marshmallows or some of your other favorite candies to get creative. You could also crush up some mini eggs and sprinkle that across the bark. 

Want to use other chocolate? Sure! Use white chocolate chips, or dark chocolate, or melt down your milk eggs to make this delicious bunny bark.

Tips & Tricks

  • If the chocolate isn’t melting smooth, you can add up to a tablespoon of coconut oil, or vegetable oil to thin it out a bit. Just give it a good story to combine.
  • Don’t go too thin with the layer of melted chocolate or it will be too fragile.
  • No parchment paper? No problem! Grab your baking mats. They are designed to be non-stick and are reusable. 

Storage

You can store this bunny bark at room temperature in an airtight container. It will keep for up to 2 weeks. You could also store it in the refrigerator as it will last longer.

FAQ

Why is Easter associated with chocolate and specifically Easter eggs?

The chocolate egg started as a pagan symbol of fertility and spring and developed into a representation of Christ's resurrection. To this day, it still holds this meaning for so many, but the chocolate eggs have been commercialized to be an Easter gift for kids to celebrate this special time of the year. 

Does chocolate bark have an expiration date?

To be honest, chocolate doesn't have a short expiration life, and some will say chocolate bark can last for up to a year. But as it has been melted, and is stored in an airtight container, it will be at its best for a good few weeks. You might find it won't even last a week if your home is anything like ours. 

Can you make this dairy-free or vegan? 

Sure! Just melt dairy-free or your favorite vegan treats and chocolate to make a special version of this bunny bark for everyone to enjoy!
