Easy Patriotic Day Barks
Chocolate Bark is the easiest and most loved dessert out there and yet not many people give it a shot of making.
So, we are sharing this Patriotic Bark recipe which is a must have dessert for your red, blue or white themed parties.
To start with it is such a simple and a no-bake recipe that even kids could make it which is actually a great idea. Spread the chocolate out and then let the kids go to town decorating while you work on something else. Amazing!
Prep Time10 minutes
All you will need is:
½ cup peanut M&M’s, roughly chopped
½ cup peanut M&M’s, whole
112 oz. White Candy Melts/Cooking Chocolate Chips
½ cup Dark Cocoa Candy Melts (or Dark Cooking Chocolate)
Star Sprinkles (Optional)
Line your baking sheet with wax paper and set aside for later use.
Put White Candy Melts in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds stirring every 20 seconds at 40% power. If the Candy Melts are not melted completely then heat further at stirring every 15 seconds until completely melted.
Heat the Dark Chocolate Melts in a separate microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute and 30 seconds stirring every 20 seconds at 40% power. If the Candy Melts are not melted completely then heat further at stirring every 15 seconds until completely melted.
Spread the white chocolate on the prepared baking sheet and use a spatula to smooth it out until 1 cm thick.
Drizzle patches of dark chocolate over the white chocolate and use a pointy object to create swirls.
Sprinkle the chopped M&M’s on the chocolate and press a bit to make the candy stick to it. Repeat the same with whole M&M’s and Star Sprinkles.
Place the sheet in the freezer for around 20 minutes or until hardened. Break the Bark into pieces and refrigerate until ready to serve.
