White Chocolate Easter Bark is a colorful and festive treat made with only three ingredients. Make this Easter Bark recipe in advance or as a fun way to use up leftover Easter candy.
It’s that time of year…You know what I mean. Everything becomes pinks, yellows, greens and baby blues. Cadbury creme eggs are everywhere. M&M Easter candies. Oh peeps, we can’t forget the peeps. Well it’s no different in our kitchen. I just love the colors of the Easter Bark and this is one of the easiest things you can make at Easter time.
We had some leftover chocolate from a production run, so we figured why not start with the Easter fun. Now in my kitchen, I prefer to temper chocolate. I love the snap and shine from the process. But in your kitchen, you may want an easy Easter bark and choose not to temper the chocolate. I get it. It’s a difficult process to master. The ingredients won’t change depending on tempering or not. So it’s entirely up to you. If you want to give tempering a try, here is a quick video from America’s Test Kitchen on the science of tempering and how to do it. If you don’t want to bother tempering, you can just pour the chocolate into baking sheet and put it in the refrigerator to cool and set.
Now here is the difference. If you temper the chocolate, you can leave this out on the counter and it won’t lose the snap and shine. If you don’t temper the chocolate, you must keep it refrigerated instead. Zero difference in taste. The process is entirely up to you.
Ingredients for the Easter Bark
Can it get any easier than one, two, three? You’ll love this easy Easter bark recipe.
- White Chocolate
- Easter colored M&Ms
- Easter Sprinkles
For our decorative effects, we used Wilton sprinkles and spring color M&Ms. You can use pretty much use anything you like as long as it is Easter colored. Also for ours, I split the chocolate in half and colored some with Chef Rubber cocoa butter to make it pink. They also have blues and greens. Go with color or just keep it white chocolate.
Next, I would recommend finding the best white chocolate you can get. White chocolate can be over the top sweet. So make sure what you use is one you like. For my bark I don’t use a lot of the decorative stuff. I like the flavor of my white chocolate. So we just use a little bit of the add ins to give it a cute look, but not overpower the taste of the chocolate. So my recipe gives you a guideline of the amount of sprinkles based on what we used, but use what you would like.
How To Make Easter Bark
Scroll down for the full Easter bark recipe.
- If you will be tempering your chocolate, begin there. If not, hop (see what I did there) on down to step two.
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and pour it onto a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper. Level it with a spatula.
- Sprinkle Easter candy like M&Ms and sprinkles over the chocolate and let the chocolate harden. Place it in the fridge if you did not temper the chocolate.
- Once hardened use a knife or your hand to break the chocolate into smaller pieces.
Also what is great about this white chocolate Easter bark is that it makes an awesome gift. For those of you that like to make Easter baskets, this is a great piece to put in there. You can easily wrap the bark pieces up in a clear food grade bag that you can get at any Michaels or craft store and tie it with some Easter color curling ribbon.

The Cutest Easter Bark
- 1 pound white chocolate
- 1/2 cup M&M spring color candy (more if you would like)
- 1/4 cup Wilton sprinkles (more if you would like)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- At this point you can temper the chocolate per the video, or if you choose to not temper, melt the white chocolate over a double boiler.
- Pour the chocolate into the baking sheet and use a spatula to level it out.
- While the chocolate is still liquid sprinkle on your M&Ms and the Wilton sprinkles. Once you have it the way you like it, you can put it in the refrigerator to set. If you have tempered, there is no need to put it in the refrigerator.
- Once the chocolate has hardened, lift it out of the baking sheet and place it on a cutting board. I then use a knife to cut pieces. Or you can use your hands and just start snapping pieces off.
