How To Make Easy Bunny Bark
Using kitchen shears, cut 2-3 square marshmallows into 1/4 inch pieces, set aside on a piece of parchment paper.
Dip one side of the marshmallow (sticky side down) in pink sanding sugar, and set aside.
Break pretzel sticks in half and set all ingredients aside until it’s time to decorate the chocolate bark.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Melt Merckens candy melts 20 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring in between. (see here for Merckens candy coatings melting instructions).
Decorate the melted chocolate with marshmallow ears, icing eyes, a sixlet for the nose, and pretzels for the whiskers. Leave about a half inch to an inch of space between the bunny faces, this will leave room for cutting the bark.
Let the decorated bark set up for 20 minutes in the refrigerator or until hardened.
Remove the bark from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for 20 minutes before cutting.
