Cooking With Kids : Jellybean Bark

Not only is this candy super easy to make, it's colorful and festive too!!! The best part is it only has 3 ingredients, takes maybe 15-20 minutes and is super yummy. Biting into this jellybean bark infuses your taste buds with the smoothness of chocolate and the surprising, unexpected mix of tangy jellybeans!

Jellybean Bark

* 1 T. butter, melted
* 1-1/4 lb. candy coating 
(can be white chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, etc.)
* 2 cups miniature jelly beans (like Jelly Belly)

Line a 15" x 10" x 1" pan with foil. Brush with butter ; set aside. Place the candy coating in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave , uncovered for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds till smooth. 


Pour the melted candy coating into the foil lined pan. Spread it around as evenly as possible. 


Sprinkle the jelly beans on top of the candy coating. 


Let stand until set before breaking into pieces.


This candy bark looks especially cute set out on a serving platter on top of some Easter grass. It is also adorable wrapped up in some cellophane bags, tied with some festive spring ribbon and topped off with an Easter decoration. Individual wrapped servings make perfect little remembrances at this time of year. 


Making this jellybean bark was super fun for all of us and the kids had a blast sprinkling (and taste testing) the jellybeans! This candy was such a fun Springtime recipe and will be perfect for teacher gifts this year! Have fun!

Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust,
