I know a lot of people don’t like the early arrival of Easter eggs in stores (especially when it’s just a couple of weeks after Christmas!), however I get really excited by it as it gives me loads of time to come up with fun and delicious Easter recipes!
This Easter egg chocolate bark is truly the easiest Easter recipe and a great one to make with the kids (with a little supervision to make sure they don’t eat all of the eggs and chocolate). You can add any type of Easter egg to this chocolate bark, but I think the combination of crispy speckled eggs, caramel-filled eggs and Maltesers not only looks good, but tastes great, too. I like to cut the caramel eggs in half so that the caramel oozes out, but you can leave them whole if you prefer.
If you are buying chocolate eggs especially for this recipe, be warned you are going to have LOTS of leftovers. Either make a couple of batches of this Easter egg bark or just keep the chocolate eggs to eat for yourself – I know which one I would choose!
I like to make this Easter egg chocolate bark to give as gifts to my kids’ teachers, but it’s also the perfect way to use up any leftover Easter eggs or chocolate bars, which apparently exist in some homes – not ours though!
