Easter ‘Bark’

Food

I don’t make sweets. I don’t actually eat many sweets. This is because I consider chocolate to be a separate food group from sweets. But when I saw this recipe for something called “Easter Bark” on Pinterest, I decided to give it a go. Marshmallows, white chocolate and pretty decorations: what’s not to like?

I scaled down the recipe significantly. If I had made the whole lot according to the original recipe, I’d probably have eaten the lot, which wouldn’t do me any good.

These are really pretty, helped by the use of pastel coloured decorative flowers. The pink and white marshmallows make them particularly appropriate for Easter. I’m sure that there are many more combinations of colours and decorations which could be used.

Incidentally, I’m a bit proud of this photo. I’ve been keeping my Easter resolution and playing around with Tim’s camera. No editing needed!

Ingredients 

  • 150g white chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • Sprinkles

Method

  1. Line a suitable dish with greaseproof paper.
  2. Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave. Mine took about a minute and a half, on Medium.
  3. Quickly add the marshmallows and stir well. The marshmallows will start to melt, so you need to work fast.
  4. Pour the mixture into your dish and smooth down so it is one marshmallow deep.
  5. Sprinkle your decorations over the top.
  6. Place in the fridge for several hours until solid.
  7. Cut into squares around 2cm square.
