Calling all chocolate lovers!!!

Are you ready for a delicious treat that is not only super cute to give as a gift, it is also soooooo easy to make?

Enter: Chocolate Bark.

This Easter Chocolate Bark looks darling wrapped up and given to neighbors and friends, but it also makes a good addition to your kids Easter baskets!

I’ve seen recipes out there that over-complicate the whole chocolate bark process. They say you need special oils or ingredients, and you have to have a double boiler or “it just won’t work.” But this chocolate bark recipe is simple and tasty and you can make it without any gadgets – I promise!

So if you’ve never melted chocolate because you don’t have a double boiler, guess what? I don’t either. I simply put a small metal mixing bowl on top of a sauce pan with an inch or two of boiling water. Place the pieces of chocolate in the bowl and continually stir it until all the chocolate is melted and smooth!

You can switch up the candy and toppings and make it for any holiday! (But this Easter Chocolate Bark sure is cute, isn’t it?)

Also, making chocolate bark can be a creative and fun recipe for the kids to help you make! Mine LOVE sprinkling all the toppings on the melted chocolate. We probably make this recipe 3-4 times a year and it never gets old!
