Homemade colorful candy bark
Of all the things I love about Christmas, I think the thing I love the most is the excuse to indulge in all sorts of naughty sweet treats. I don't think of myself as having a much of a sweet tooth, I'm definitely a savory kind of gal but once a year I like to treat myself to the odd chocolate or two, or three, or four! OK – a whole box!!!
This year we wanted to make our own Christmas candy so inspired by Katherine Sabbath's Unicorn chocolate, we made Christmas Candy Bark and it turned out to be soooooo cute!!
- 1 Bag of White Candy Melts
- 1 Bag of Pink Candy Melts
- 1/2 Bag of Green Candy Melts
- Selection of colorful sprinkles and edible confetti to decorate
- Large baking tray
- Baking Paper
- BBQ Skewer
- Line your baking tray with baking paper.
- Melt the white candy melts either in a microwave or on the hob. If using the microwave heat for 30 second intervals stirring each time until the chocolate has completely melted and become smooth.
- Now using the same method melt down your pink and green melts in separate bowls.
- Pour the white candy melt mixture onto your baking tray. At this point you might find some of your mixtures are beginning to thicken but don't worry just simply reheat the candy to make it smooth again.
- Using a spoon, place dollops of pink and green mixture over various areas of your tray until covered. Then gently tap the tray to level all the chocolate.
- Using your skewer, quickly swirl throughout all the different candy colors before the mixture begins to set.
- Finally, decorate with a selection of sprinkles, tapping the tray again lightly to ensure all the sprinkles stay put in the mixture. Then place your Christmas Candy bark in the fridge to set for about an hour.
- Once the candy has hardened, use a knife to break into pieces and voila! The perfect chocolaty treat for Christmas.
