bunny bark

We love holidays and birthdays because they give us a reason to go all out with sugar and candy!! Who doesn't love easter candy in those amazing pastel colors and cute bunny and chick shapes? Pick your favorite candies and get to work. . . bunny bark is super easy and makes a fun project for the kiddos. Package it up for your easter baskets or place it on a cute plate for your easter gathering, who wouldn't love an explosion of candy smothered on top of chocolate? 

step 1: pick your poison
Choose your favorite easter candies and chop them up into tiny pieces. We chose reese's peanut butter cups, mini marshmallows, easter sprinkles, and m+ms of course. If you buy the bags from the grocery store you will have left overs for your candy bowl or jar!
 step 2: create your foundation
Melt a bag of chocolates and a bag of pink chocolates in separate bowls according to the instructions on the package. Layout a piece of wax paper and pour the chocolate in a 1/4 inch thick layer. Add drops of the pink on top. Take a knife and draw a line straight through the pink to create "heart" shaped swirls in the chocolate. We had left over pink chocolate so we made a mini batch of pink bark on another piece of wax paper. . . we wouldn't want any to go to waste!!
step 3: sprinkle time
Sprinkle your toppings onto the chocolate until you are satisfied with your bark coverage.
Allow your bark to set for 3 hours before cutting into it.
step 4: break time 
When the bark is completely cooled start breaking it apart- get crazy with it!
That's it!! Enjoy this little bunny treat with your friends and family. 
Watch out- this can lead to a serious sugar buzz!!
