Easter Bark

This Easter Bark is sooooo easy to make… and super cute, too!

Easter Bark

It’s true… I’m pushing 40 and my mama still gives me an Easter basket every year.  She is so thoughtful!  As I’ve grown older, the baskets have just included more “grown-up” goodies.  My last basket had some gardening stuff in it (gloves, seeds and a little spade).  One thing’s for sure:  there’s always ROBIN EGGS in the little basket!  I love ‘em!

Being the Pinterest freak that I am, I’ve seen so many cute Easter recipe ideas lately.  I recently saw some cupcakes topped with green-colored coconut and robin eggs, and thought it would be so cute to make an easy Easter Bark recipe with the same concept.

Ingredients for Easter Bark

Here’s what you’ll need:  Graham crackers, vanilla almond bark, coconut, a few drops of green food coloring and robin eggs.

Graham Crackers with Easter Bark

It’s as easy as this:  Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper and arrange graham crackers on the baking sheet.

Spread melted vanilla flavored almond bark over the graham crackers and top with green-colored coconut and robin eggs.  Allow to cool and break in to pieces.

To color the coconut, all I did was add 3 drops of green food coloring in a teaspoon of water.  I poured the coconut into a Ziploc bag, then added the teaspoon of water and food coloring.  I had to shake the bag to evenly distribute the food coloring, but it was crazy easy and quick.

    I LOVE that your mom still gives you Easter baskets :) I was 19 when I moved out and I will never forget waking up that very last Easter morning at home and hoping beyond hope that he Easter bunny came….and, he did! I have all boys and they are all over 18 and I have to restrain myself each year from going whole hog on the Easter basket thing. I still always get them a little somethin’.

    So, I love the bark. A lot of bark recipes are just too rich and sweet for me so the graham cracker bottom layer is a great idea.
