How To Make Easy Bunny Bark

Step one:

Square smores marshmallows cut into small rectangles and dipped in pink sanding sugar to make bunny ears. 

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.

Step two:

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.

Step five: 

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.

Why make bunny bark?

Aside from it being quick, cute, and easy, the large pieces take up space in Easter baskets, plus it’s affordable to make!

We love the way it looks wrapped up in a cellophane bag tied with some curling ribbon!
