Easter Bark

30 March 2013


Should I apologise for posting yet another chocolate recipe? I admit that I've baked an awful lot of chocolate based goodies over the winter {except for the Cherry Blossom cupcakes} but I can't help it. Over the cold, dark winter months,  chocolate is such a comfort and a pick-me-up, releasing all those warm and fuzzy feel good endorphins.


Anyway I bought some Cadburys Creme Egg Splats last week with the intention of using them in my Easter baking. My initial thought was to put them in some chocolate brownies but I'm all brownied out at the moment. Then today I saw some bark on Pinterest and a further search brought up loads of bark ideas. And I knew it was the perfect base for the Splats.


Easter Bark

Preparation time 10 minutes plus 1 hours refrigeration

150g milk chocolate
150g white chocolate
20 Cadburys Creme Egg Splats
Sprinkles/Smarties/mini chocolate beans

Break up the chocolate and put them in separate heat proof bowls. Place one bowl at a time over a pan of simmering water or melt in the microwave in 30 second bursts on half power.

Pour three quarters of the milk chocolate onto baking tray covered with a piece of baking paper. Tilt the tray slightly to spread the chocolate out a little. Spoon 4/5 teaspoons of the white chocolate in blobs onto the milk chocolate and swirl around with a cocktail stick to get a marbled effect.

Place the Splats on top then sprinkle the mini chocolate beans/Smarties/sprinkles in the spaces in between. Pop in the fridge to set for about 1 hour.

Repeat the process but pour the remaining the white chocolate onto the sheet and blob ans swirl the rest of the milk chocolate on top.

Once set, break up into smaller pieces. I tried to make sure each piece had a splat in it.

Enjoy and have a wonderful Easter!
