Chocolate Easter Bark is a simple, festive, spring treat featuring two kinds of chocolate swirled together and topped with M&M’s, chocolate eggs, and sprinkles! The pastel colors, fun sprinkles, and candy make this a super fun and festive no bake Easter treat for kids!
Chocolate Easter Bark
Just over a month until Easter. As always, time is flying by, regardless of whether we’re having fun. Hubby has been working crazy hours for the last 8 months now. He’s a firefighter, so he normally works 24 hour shifts at a time, which we’re used to. But we’ve also been working on saving for taxes (because we’ll owe this year. Sigh), paying off some debt using Dave Ramsey’s course, and saving to take the kids back to where my heart really lives, Florida! (I’m a Florida native stuck in the Midwest. It is COLD here! I can’t wait for sand and beaches and Disney World…) In any case, hubby has been working 36 hour shifts to earn a little extra money for all that stuff.
All that to say, I am stressed to the max dealing with home life and kids by myself, and that calls for simple no bake desserts like this Chocolate Easter Bark. It is super cute, but super easy to make, meaning I won’t have to pull my hair out from the stress of making an Easter treat. That’s silly! I even took the extra couple minutes to make an Amazon shopping list below so you can get everything you need right from your phone. Yay!
My biggest most important tip for making this recipe is that you only microwave in 30 second intervals, and you stir between each one. Otherwise your chocolate will seize up and get stiff and you’ll have to throw it away and start over.
If you love white chocolate more than milk chocolate, you can check out this white chocolate Easter Bark version that I shared last year.

Chocolate Easter Bark Recipe
Chocolate Easter Bark
- 8 ounces milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate
- 4 ounces white chocolate (to make candy melts more pastel)
- 1 cup each Wilton candy melts in 3-4 colors we used blue, pink, purple, and yellow for ours
- Pastel M&M's
- Spring or Easter sprinkles for garnish
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
- Melt milk or semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval to prevent chocolate from burning. Set aside.
- Repeat melting process in a separate bowl for each color of candy melts (each color needs its own bowl). Add bits of white chocolate to make the colors more pastel.
- Pour melted milk or semi-sweet chocolate onto the lined baking sheet. Spread evenly.
- Scoop melted candy melts into dollops, one color at a time, on top of plain chocolate. Just leave it in glops for now. It won't look swirled yet. Just scoop out one color at a time until they're all used up.
- When all chocolate is in the pan, swirl together with a butter knife to get the marbling effect. Just place the knife all the way to the bottom of the sheet and gently swirl up and down, back and forth, or diagonally, until you achieve your desired look.
- Sprinkle M&M's and sprinkles on top.
- Let set for an hour, or until hard and solid. You can also place in the refrigerator or freezer to help set faster (although this might affect the color of the M&M's. Sometimes they look less shiny after being in the refrigerator or freezer).
- Break into pieces once set.
- Store in an air tight container in a cool dry place.
