This adorable Easter bunny bark recipe makes a perfect Easter dessert.
Speaking of children, get the kids in the kitchen to help make this easy Easter bark. They will have a blast helping to use the candies and pretzels to make the little bunny faces.
For a saltine cracker Easter bark, give this Easter Bark recipe a try.
Here is what you will need:
- White Candy Melts– Available in the baking/cake decorating area at Walmart or order them here. Almond bark would work as well-just chop it into pieces before melting.
- Pretzel Sticks– To be broken in half and used as the bunny’s whiskers.
- Pink Jelly Beans– I like using Jelly Belly since they are smaller, but you can use your favorite brand. A pink Easter M&M would work for the nose as well.
- Candy Bunny Ears– Find them in the baking/ cake decorating area at Walmart or order them here. Or you could try drawing bunny ears on using edible markers instead.
- Candy Eyes– Also can be found with the baking supplies or ordred here.
How to Make Easter Bunny Bark
Step 1: Melt candy melts in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in-between each. Spread the melted candy onto a lined baking sheet in an even layer, about ⅛ thick.
Step 2: Gently press the pretzels and candies into the melted candy to make bunny faces. You will want to work quickly before the candy melts start to set.
Step 3: Refrigerate until set, then break into pieces and enjoy.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
For longer storage keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Tips & Variations
- For a pretty pink Easter bark try using pink candy melts instead of white.
- Use a knife to score the bark before it sets fully to help you break it into neat pieces.
- This recipe only makes about 6 pieces of bark. For more bark you can easily double the recipe in a single sheet pan.
- Add bright and colorful sprinkles in the empty areas between bunny faces for some added color.
