Easter Chocolate Bark
A yummy, simple Easter recipe for the whole family
We absolutely love this simple recipe for getting the whole family involved. Once the chocolate has been melted, your child can choose their toppings.
You can use sprinkles, choc chips, mini candy eggs, chocolate eggs/bunnies, pretzel – its limited by your imagination (and taste!) You can even melt white chocolate too and “swirl” for a marbled effect.
Depending on your topping and set up – the recipe might also involve chopping, peeling, crushing. hammering, snapping and sprinkling – fabulous for developing:
- fine motor control
- visuospatial awareness
- crossing midline
and practicing action words such as peel, melt, stir, sprinkle, chop, break, cut and spread.
We used: melted Lindt Bunny and Reece’s Peanut Butter melts, hundreds and thousands, mini eggs and pretzles!
290 g packet of milk choc melts
Your choice of toppings
1. Melt choc melts gradually in a heat proof bowl over simmering water in a saucepan (Parents will need to do this part!) OR in the microwave on 15 second bursts
1. Pour melted chocolate onto a baking tray lined with paper. Carefully lift up sides of the tray to allow the chocolate to spread into a thin layer.
1. Apply your toppings!
Are you worried about your child eating chocolate this Easter?
Parents often know their children and toddlers absolutely LOVE chocolate. Everybody (well almost everybody) LOVES chocolate. We commonly hear parents ask but “how much can they have? when is it enough? too much?
