This Easter chocolate bark has the perfect blend of sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy. It’s a spring dessert you don’t want to pass up!
I have a weakness for chocolate bark. Especially cute, seasonal varieties like chocolate cherry & peppermint snowflake bark, halloween candy corn bark, and bite size party bark. But this Easter chocolate bark is a contender for my favorite that I’ve made so far.
You see, it has all these texture components that make up a great chocolate bark, in my opinion. You have the creaminess of the white and milk chocolate, the crunchy, salty pretzel pieces, and the sweet, M&M’s and sprinkles. Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy. Yep…that about sums up perfection to me. What say you??
This recipe highlights the third and final variety of sprinkles that I received from sponsor Sprinkle Pop. It was the Cottontail Confetti variety, and is so cute, so colorful, and so perfect for an Easter treat. Lots of pastel sprinkles AND little pastel egg shapes. LOVE! And they really topped off this chocolate bark perfectly.
I also used Adams Extracts Natural Food Colors to make some colorful swirls in the white chocoate bark, for added spring cuteness! I used the blue, green, and yellow and they gave the perfect swirl of color!
Not only is this chocolate bark delicious, but it is SO easy to make. You can put it all together in about 10 minutes, and then chill for 10 or 15 minutes before it’s firmed up and ready to break apart and devour. If that isn’t too easy to pass up, I don’t know what is!

Are you ready for the easiest, most delicious spring recipe yet? Yeah. You are!
Easter Chocolate Bark
- 2 cups milk or dark chocolate pieces (you can use almond bark, chocolate coating, candy melts, chocolate chips, baking bars – whatever your prefer, it all works just as well)
- 2 cups white chocolate or vanilla pieces
- 2 cups broken or crushed pretzel pieces
- 1 cup pastel M&Ms chocolate candies
- Adams Extracts blue, green, and yellow natural food colors
- Sprinkle Pop Cottontail Confetti sprinkles
- Line a medium baking sheet with foil, parchment paper, or wax paper and set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl, heat the milk chocolate on high for 60 seconds. Stir, and then heat in 15 second intervals until just melted. Pour the melted chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and use a spatual to spread over the entire area, into the corners, and getting it as even in thickness as you can.
- Sprinkle the crushed pretzels over the entire area, as evenly as possible. Place in the refrigerator (or freezer if you’re pressed for time) to firm up for about 10 minutes.
- In a second bowl, repeat the melting process with the white chocolate. Pour over the hardened chocolate and pretzel layer, and spread to cover the entire area.
- In rows or design pattern of your choice, place dots, at leasts an inch apart, in varying colors across the white chocolate surface. Use a toothpick and drag the tip through the colors, to create streaks or swirls – again, in the pattern of your choosing. I placed my dots in rows and dragged the toothpick through sideways, and then again top-to-bottom, to create a swirly look.
- Now sprinkle the M&M’s across the top, and then the sprinkles. refrigerate (or freeze) for 15 minutes to firm up and then you can break apart – using a knife or your hands! The pieces don’t need to be uniform in size or shape, so have fun with it! These will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container, but it won’t last that long!
