I guess that the broccoli has been on long enough. BRING BACK THE CHOCOLATE!!!! So I saw this cool Easter Bark on the Pioneer Woman website and wanted to try it. Needless to say it is a hit. I love the Easter colors and this made for a really pretty little treat. I used Easter M&M's, Easter Sixlets, Cadbury Eggs cut in half(I didn't use alot of these because you know, Cadbury Eggs are sacred and need to be guarded with your life) and Easter sprinkles. You can add anything and everything that you love to this recipe. Of course, be prepared to have it scarfed right up. It's a favorite and it's just so YUMMY!

Unwrap all of the candy that you will be using. If you need to cut anything do it before you melt the chocolate so it is ready to go. Love these colors!

Choose fun colors of candy melts. I just used the Wilton melts. They are so easy to use. Make sure you set your microwave at 50% and do 30 seconds at a time.

Pour chocolate onto a pan lined with wax paper and spread out as thick or as thin as you want it.

Drop the colored candy melts by spoonsful into the chocolate and then take and knife and have so much fun. You can make lines and swirls and see how artistic you can get:)

Sprinkle with your favorite candy. You can even use cookies or nuts if you like. Press the candy gently into the chocolate so it sticks. I just love these spring colors.

Ok! So this recipe is just plain fun. You can make it any way you want it and you can adapt it to any holiday. Try it out. Easy, Yummy, and Fun - can't get better than that! HAPPY EASTER!!!

Easter Bark

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
colored candy melts
any kind of Easter candy that you like

Prepare the candy by unwrapping it and placing in bowls or on a plate. Cut in half any candy such as Cadbury eggs or Robin Eggs.

Melt the chocolate chips together. Use microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals. When it is melted, set aside and melt the candy melts. When everything is melted, pour the chocolate onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Spread out to desire thickness. Next drop the melted candy melts into spots on the chocolate. With a knife, swirl to make the design you want. Sprinkle with your candy. Press down gently so candy goes into the chocolate. Let harden. Cut into pieces.
