Delicious Easter Chocolate Bark // Recipe


Hey lovelies, so Easter is here meaning way to many mini eggs and hot-crossed buns for me to handle, but I'm not complaining hehe! With all sorts of family meetups, and me even organising the Easter Egg Hunt this year (uh oh) I've been making lots of Easter-themed treats lately and today I thought I would share with you my absolute favourite thing so far: Chocolate Bark! As well as tasting delicious, this is the perfect thing for snapping off and sharing, looks fun and is the perfect alternative for people like me who are a bit sick of your normal Easter Eggs. You can include all sorts of different toppings for this recipe, mmm think pistachios...raspberries...white chocolate, but for this one I opted for mini eggs (my guilty pleasure around Easter time!) almonds and cranberries. Hope you enjoy this sweet little recipe post lovelies.





Ingredients: (Makes 1 Sheet of Bark)

  • 3x 200g Bars of Milk Chocolate
  • 1 Packet of Mini Chocolate Eggs
  • 2x Handfulls of Almonds
  • 1/4 Cup of Dried Cranberries

01. Break your chocolate into a large heatproof bowl, then place the bowl over a pan of simmering water to gently melt (stirring with a spatula every so often.)
02. Meanwhile, line a 23x33 cm tray with grease-proof paper, and slice the almonds into thin pieces.
03. When the chocolate in completely melted, remove it from the heat and stir in the almond pieces. Next, pour into the tray until and tip between corners until it is evenly spread and smooth.
04. Now for the fun part! Sprinkle on top your toppings, whether that be mini eggs and cranberries like me or whatever you fancy - but make sure to do this lightly as you don't want to make craters in your chocolate.
05. When done, leave to set completely at room temperate (this should take about 2 hours) and then snap of into shards and pieces to share, or pack into little gift bags or boxes. It can later be stored in the fridge.

  1. This looks so goddamn tasty and cool twist on Easter baking with chocolate and mini eggs opposed to the typical Easter nests.

  10. Oh maa godddd! I just had to look at the first photo to then decide that I need to make these!! They look delicious and I'm sure they tasted just as good.
    I like all chocolate, but for this recipe I think either white or milk would taste the best!
