How to Make this Easter Bark Recipe
This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400° F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Fill the sheet with an even layer of saltine crackers; set aside.
Step 2: In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and whisk until bubbly, then let simmer for 3-4 minutes. Pour the hot toffee mixture over your saltine crackers, as even as possible.
Step 3: Bake for 5 minutes, or until it begins to bubble.
Step 4: Meanwhile, divide the white chocolate into two bowls (1 cup in one bowl and 2 cups in the other) and take turns melting each one in the microwave. To melt, heat in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until smooth and melted. Once melted, add 2 drops of pink gel food coloring to the smaller portion and stir to mix well.
Step 5: Pour the melted chocolate over the crackers and spread into an even layer using a rubber spatula. Drop the pink chocolate on top by the spoonful and use a fork to swirl the colors together.
Step 6: Top with Easter candy and sprinkles.
Step 7: Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once set, break your easter bark it into pieces and enjoy!
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

Yummy dessert. The sweet and salty make a good combo. Next time, however, I’ll make it in a 9×13 baking dish. A lot of these fell off the baking sheet and messed up my oven.

Oh no! I have never experienced any spillage when making bark and I make it several times a year for different holidays. What size sheet pan did you use? I use a half-sheet size Nordic Ware pan.
