Easter Mini Egg Chocolate Bark

Spring and bunnies and chocolate are in the air! This weekend we have two Easter egg hunts to attend and brunch with some family friends. I wanted to bring a little something with us when visiting, so I made this pretty pastel Easter mini egg chocolate bark last night. 

Chocolate bark is one of those treats that you can make with pretty much any ingredients you have around: candy, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, pretzels… the sky’s the limit! For this chocolate bark, I only used three ingredients – white chocolate, green colouring, and mini eggs (because Easter of course!). I already had a a 485 gram (about 1 pound) block of Callebaut white chocolate in my pantry, so that’s what I used. You can buy white chocolate in ready made small discs designed for even melting, but since mine was a big block I cut it up first. While I had my big knife out, I also cut a generous handful of mini eggs in half and crushed up a few more for sprinkling.

I know you’re technically supposed to use a double boiler and a candy thermometer to carefully melt the chocolate, but honestly I’ve always done just fine with my microwave. I put the chopped chocolate into a glass bowl and popped it in the microwave oven for 20 seconds at a time on medium-high heat (power level 7 on my microwave). Between bursts of heat I took the bowl out and stirred the chocolate. White chocolate scorches easier than dark, so once the chocolate was mostly melted, I took it out and stirred until the last pieces of chocolate gradually melted into the liquid. 

Once the chocolate was completely melted and smooth, I poured it onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and spread it out evenly with a soft rubber spatula. I kept back a bit of melted chocolate (maybe a quarter cup or so) and added green colouring until it was the shade I wanted. Remember that adding water to chocolate will make it seize, so use an oil-based or powder colour.

Once I had my green chocolate, I drizzled it onto the still melty white chocolate and used a chopstick to drag the two colours together for a marbled effect. I was originally going for a grassy look and I’m not sure that really came through, but either way it ended up a pretty and Easter appropriate pastel background for my mini eggs. I placed each mini egg half, sprinkled on some crushed up mini eggs, then threw on some rainbow sprinkles for good measure.

When I was done with the toppings, I put the cookie sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to harden so it had a satisfying snap when I broke it into pieces suitable for wrapping up in cellophane or packing in a nice box for gifting this weekend. I love all the colours in this Easter mini egg chocolate bark. I hope our hosts enjoy it too!

  • Your Easter Mini Egg Chocolate Bark looks so delicious! I like the idea of being able to make it up ahead of time, wrapping it up, & gifting it to friends & family at Easter. The bark sounds so easy to make even I can make it! Yay! Pinned it so I can find the recipe later. Thanks for sharing!

  • This would be a big hit with my daughter in Germany, she loves mini eggs and no doubt her son would love it too. 😀

  • I wish I’d seen this at Easter! I’ve pinned it though, so pretty. I’m really not a white chocolate fan but this is just so gorgeous that I want to make it for gifts… I’m also thinking that I might make one for my family with a regular chocolate base and then a thin layer of the white on top with mint. Can a person flavour white chocolate? Would this work?

  • This is so fun and cute for Easter! I am totally trying this and already have some ideas for Halloween and Christmas! Thanks for the inspiration!
