Easter will be here before you know it and this no-bake Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark is the perfect Easter treat to make for your big and little kids! Packaged in cute cellophane bags, Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark also makes great homemade Easter treats for those special people in your life.
Easy Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark is luscious and creamy white chocolate over crunchy chocolate graham crackers, which is then topped with whimsical and colorful Easter candy. The sky is the limit, you can use whatever candy you like to decorate with: jelly beans, Peeps, gummy bunnies, M&Ms, Speckled Easter eggs, candy eggs, Easter candy corn, Cadbury mini candy eggs, Reese’s mini chocolate Easter eggs, Hershey’s eggs and, my personal favorite, Sweet Tart jelly beans; you get the picture. This delicious homemade candy is so ridiculously easy to make I’m almost embarrassed to call it a recipe.
Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark is so simple your children could make it or, if they are too young, they could certainly help you prepare it.
Did you know white chocolate doesn’t contain chocolate or cocoa powder? It’s really a blend of cocoa butter, milk solids, sugar, milk fat, and lecithin. In my book, none of this matters, because it’s all still creamy deliciousness!
I was inspired to make Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark after watching an episode of the Pioneer Woman. Ree and one of her children were making Crazy Bark to put in a care package to send to one of her daughters in college. She used almond bark instead of white chocolate and added crumbled Oreo’s, nuts and other candy; that gave me the idea to make this Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark.
The ingredients for Easter Bunny White Chocolate Bark include white chocolate, chocolate graham crackers, assorted Easter candy* and optional edible Easter grass. (The picture shows a small bag of green icing and decorating tips. Originally my plan was to pipe on patches of green grass on the candy. The package of decorating tips said they would fit all Betty Crocker icing products, but they didn’t fit on the green icing package, so I ended up just placing the edible cut-up Easter grass around in small clumps instead.)
Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat (I use a glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water). Stir until smooth, then allow to cool slightly. You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave by placing the white chocolate in a heat-proof glass bowl and put it in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate with a rubber spatula, return it to the microwave for another 30 seconds, then stir again. Continue to heat and stir in 30-second intervals until the white chocolate is smooth and creamy.
Place the graham crackers side by side in a single layer on a baking sheet which has been lined with parchment paper.
Spoon the melted white chocolate over the graham crackers and use an offset spatula or knife to smooth it out. Make sure to cover the graham crackers completely.
Place as much or as little of the candy on top of the white chocolate, in whatever pattern you like. Optional, garnish with small pieces of edible Easter grass. When you have placed all of your candy on top, gently press the candy down to make sure everything is set.
Set aside for 3 hours for the white chocolate to harden. Cut or break the candy into 16 pieces. Serve at room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
