Easy Colorful Candy Bark Recipe

Over the years I have noticed that candy bark is always one of my most popular desserts at parties. I can have a huge spread of extravagant desserts laid out, and you can bet the candy bark is always the first to go! My recipe for candy bark is really very simple and what I love so much about it is how easy it is to customize to fit the look and feel of your celebration - no matter the occasion.

To make this candy bark appropriate for a graduation party, I used an assortment of colorful sprinkles featuring lots and lots of stars. I suggest popping up a little tent card next to your platter full with the message "You're a Star!" written out on it.

  • 10 ounces Candy Coating, I used blue but you can use any color
  • Variety of Colorful Sprinkles, plus extra Star Sprinkles

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside until needed.

Place the candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl and then place over a pot of simmering water. Stirring occasionally, allow the candy coating to melt completely.

Once the candy coating is melted and smooth, let it slightly cool on the counter for about 5 minutes. Once cooled, pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread is evenly until its 1/8 inch thick. Sprinkle the colorful and star sprinkles on top.

Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator until its firm, about 10 minutes. Once it has hardened, break it apart into medium-sized pieces. 

Serve and enjoy!

This bark is best kept in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag for up to two weeks.
