Expert Tips for Making Easter Bark
Vanilla candy coating, almond bark, and white chocolate are interchangeable. I prefer using candy coating because it comes with a disposable tray, so melting and clean up is a breeze!
Melting times will vary. Start by following the package directions for melting the candy coating. I always have to add additional time to get it completely melted. If this happens to you, just break up the pieces, stir, then continue to microwave in 30 second intervals. This is a very forgiving ingredient, but you don't want to over cook it.
Use a non-stick cookie sheet for easy clean up. I have never had this recipe stick to the pan on a regular cookie sheet, but you can use a Silpat non-stick baking sheet if you want to.
You can use your favorite Easter Candy instead of Cadbury Mini Eggs and pastel M&M's. Try peanut M&M's, Reese's Peanut Butter cups or even Peeps!
Use leftover candy from your kids' Easter baskets. Bring the kids into the kitchen to help you make this festive treat. It's the perfect family friendly dessert!
