Since Easter Eggs started appearing on the supermarket shelves a few months ago, I’ve shown an incredible amount of restraint by not adding a pack (or two) to my shopping trolley. However last week that resolve went out the window and I may have gone just a little overboard buying a few (ok, four) bags of different flavoured mini Easter Eggs.
Although I could think of nothing better than hiding the eggs away in the back of the pantry for only myself to enjoy, when buying all of these eggs, my intentions were good and I’ve slowly been turning them into fun and yummy Easter recipes.
I’ve always wanted to make chocolate bark and there is no real reason I haven’t made it before. I decided to have some fun and use a bag some leftover popping candy from Christmas to create this Popping Easter Egg Bark.
This is honestly one of those recipes which takes just five minutes to put together and best of all, you can use whatever Easter Eggs or candy you like. During my big Easter Egg buy up, I also bought a box of Crunchie Sprinkles and thought the addition of little Crunchie honeycomb pieces would be a yummy addition to this Popping Easter Egg Bark.
Popping Easter Egg Bark
- 200 g white chocolate
- 100 g of mini easter eggs
- 55 g of crunchie sprinkles
- 1 tablespoon of popping candy
- Cover a small baking tray with baking paper and place all of your ingredients close by.
- Break the white chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Place the bowl into the microwave and cook for 30 second spurts until it has almost melted before stirring until it completely melts.
- Pour the melted chocolate onto the prepared baking tray and move the tray around to get a thin layer of chocolate.
- Sprinkle the mini easter eggs, crunchie topping pieces and popping candy over the top of the melted chocolate until it's covered.
- Once done, place the tray into the fridge for 1 hour or until it's set.
- Remove from the fridge and then cut into large pieces
This Easter Egg Bark would make a great Easter gift for teachers, friends and family and I’m already planning to make another batch for the boys kindy teachers this year. Because it’s such an easy recipe, it’s also a great one for the kids to help you with.
Who wouldn’t want a few slices of this Popping Easter Egg Bark as a gift?
What is your favourite Easter egg flavour? Are you a popping candy fan?

Love this idea and so easy to make! I think I will make some with the kids as easter presents this year instead of buying easter eggs! Pinning for later x
Ok honest to literal goddess of all foods, Nigella Lawson, I am actually obsessed with all of these things. Especially those mini speckled eggs. This Easter bark and I are about to become best friends this weekend.
Cool. I love popping lollies
This is so fun for Easter! Pinning! x
OMG Crunchy sprinkles! Where do I get these?!!!!

I Actually have leftover candy canes I can use to make this and I can just buy some Easter eggs and I’m set. My new diet will have to have a break over Easter. This is too good not to make or eat!! X
So good, simple and delicious. I think I’ll need to take some of this camping, it will store well and be very popular to share around!
What a brilliant combination. I’ve never made chocolate bark before either.
I bought some of those crunchie sprinkles a few weeks ago, think I know how I’ll use up the left over packet I have now 😉 Thanks xx
