If you’re looking for a perfectly festive treat to serve up this Easter, this toffee bark should do the trick. It’s colorful, sweet and super simple to make for a crowd. Basically, it’s what every springtime celebration needs!
The recipe for Easter Toffee Bark comes from Kraft and calls for saltine crackers, brown sugar, butter, white chocolate and colorful Easter candies.
Start by spreading a layer of saltine crackers on a baking sheet. From there, heat the butter and brown sugar together. Mix it all on the stovetop before covering the crackers in this sugary goodness.
Bake the saltine and sugar layer together for about 8–10 minutes until the sugar and butter mixture is nice and bubbly.
Then, melt the white chocolate. Pour this on top of the sugar mixture and top with the multi-colored candy pieces before the chocolate sets. Place it in the refrigerator to cool for an hour and, when it’s chilled, break the bark into pieces.
You’ll wind up with a sweet and salty treat that looks like this in the end:
Now it’s ready to be served as a dessert! Or you can place pieces of the bark in individual baggies and give them out as party favors at your Easter gathering.
Not only is this recipe easy, but it’s also very customizable. Whether you use this to get rid of any leftover candy from the Easter Bunny or as the perfect excuse to eat more of your favorite Easter candies, you can feel free to top this with whatever kind of candy you see fit. Reese’s Eggs, pastel-colored marshmallows, you name it!
For an even sweeter take on this recipe, this version from Glitter Inc. shows how you can substitute graham crackers for saltine crackers. You’ll get a bark that cuts out the salty flavor for an even more buttery-cookie taste in every bite. This recipe also uses semi-sweet chocolate or milk chocolate with sprinkles as a festive pop of color, but feel free to still use white chocolate and Easter candy if you prefer.
And if you’d like to skip the cracker and toffee effect altogether, you can try this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. It proves that all you really need to make delicious Easter bark is chocolate and candy! This version simply calls for you to melt chocolate and top it with crushed candies to create a tasty, bite-size bark your guests will love:
No matter which one of these recipes you use as a guide, there’s no going wrong with some fun, colorful bark this spring season. So be sure to keep this in mind as a tasty dessert option for kids and adults alike!
