If you are looking for an Easter gift which doesn’t come with loads of packaging – a total bugbear of mine – and is cheaper than your average egg while being just as beautiful, then this Easy Make Easter Egg Bark is the seasonal make for you.
It’s so simple to make children can do it themselves as a lovely gift for teachers or grandparents. The swirling is the bit which makes it look so fancy-pants and yet all you need is a cocktail stick or kebab stick to draw the colours together. Feel free to go as crazy as you like with the sprinkles and toppings!
Easy Make Easter Egg Bark

: 10 min
- 200g white chocolate
- 100g dark chocolate
- 100g milk chocolate
- sprinkles and Mini Eggs
- 2 food colourings, pink, purple, green and blue all work especially well
- you will need a wooden kebab stick or a cocktail stick too
- Step 1 Line a brownie tin (30cm x 20cm approx) with greaseproof paper or a silicone liner, I prefer the reusable liner, ready for the chocolate.
- Step 2 Melt the dark and milk chocolates in separate bowls then divide the white chocolate into three small bowls and melt. I prefer to melt my chocolate in the microwave (1min on full then stir and repeat as needed for 20seconds at a time).
- Step 3 When all the chocolates are melted add a little food colouring to two of the bowls of white chocolate. All colouring is different so you will have to mix to get your preferred colour but I would use the tip of a teaspoon to add a tiny bit at a time, mixing well as you go. You only want a little so the colour is a pastel shade.
- Step 4 With all colours ready simply blob them into the prepared tin.
- Step 5 When they are all used up, keeping the tin flat, give it a horizontal shake so that the blobs level out and there are no spaces.
- Step 6 Now the fun bit! Using your wooden stick drag it in swirly motions through the coloured chocolates. This makes the pretty design. When you are happy with it add the mini eggs and sprinkles all over.
- Step 7 Leave to go cold or chill in the fridge. When it is set, remove from the liner/paper and break into pieces before placing into presentation bags.

I love this idea, it’s so crafty and a sweet gift to give. I have done chocolate bark before and always enjoy receiving chocolate. I think I am going to try and recreate something similar. By the way, your chocolate swirls are insanely beautiful.

So fun Caroline!! I love gifts that are homemade and this one seems easy yet beautiful. My kids would have a ball creating some Easter bark. Although I’m sure that half of it would be either in or on them. Fun times! Love it!
