Easter chocolate bark with creme eggs

Easter projects for kids

One of the easy holiday projects for today was to make a batch of Easter chocolate bark. We went to Poundland on Saturday to buy different kinds of confectionery including jelly beans, mini chocolate eggs and Skittles. When I started getting all the sweet stuff out today, I realised that all the Skittles were gone. Tut tut, I haven't even noticed when they gobbled them all up.
We had Cadbury creme eggs and Maltesers at home, just perfect for the project.

You will need 400g milk/dark chocolate and 100g white chocolate, plus lots of different sweets for decoration.

Line a baking tray with foil (or parchment paper. Break the chocolate - we used a mix of milk and dark - into a medium sized bowl. Place the bowl in the oven preheated to 150C for about 5 minutes, until all the chocolate has melted.

Pour the chocolate onto the foil, and shift the tray a bit from side to side, so that the chocolate is spread evenly.
Start adding decorations - first the halves of creme eggs, then whatever sweets you fancy.
Put the white chocolate in the bowl and place it in the oven preheated to 150C. Once it's melted, use a spoon to drizzle the white chocolate over the bark.

Leave to set at a room temperature, then break into shards.
It is supposed to keep up to two weeks in a closed container, but it won't last that long in our house.

I thought only Eddie would be excited about making Easter chocolate bark. But our Sash wanted to join in as well.
