Malt Easter Bark Candy Recipe | snappygourmet.comIt’s no secret I LOVE chocolate. Easter growing up was always full of chocolate, candy, and more chocolate! Not such a bad thing right? Peppermint Bark is such a popular Christmas treat, that this Easter I thought I’d make some Malt Easter Bark Candy for my family and friends thanks to all this great candy from HERSHEY’S (bunny and baskets are mine)…

Malt Easter Bark Candy Recipe | snappygourmet.comDid I mention there are only 3 ingredients in this Malt Easter Bark Candy recipe?

This Malt Easter Bark Candy is ready in less than 30 minutes and would be so cute in little bags with bows for all your friends and family.

Malt Easter Bark Candy Recipe | snappygourmet.comTo start, line a large baking sheet with wax paper.  Spread the melted chocolate chips over the wax paper in a thin layer but be careful to not get too close to the edge. Refrigerate the dark chocolate for a few minutes, then spread the melted white chips on top. Sprinkled chopped candy on top, and refrigerate for a little while longer or until set.

  1. Natalie J Vandenberghe says:

    When I was younger, we always went to Easter Sunrise Service (and brunch) at the Grange before we drove into town for our regular Church Service. I miss that tradition. What I enjoy now is going to Church, enjoying a delicious meal with family, and watching the kids hunt for Easter eggs.
    I’m hoping to make this recipe: Chocolate Almond Macaroon Bars tomorrow–it sounds delicious!

  2. Sandy Headtke says:

    The Baker basket is my favorite craft. Our family tradition is a ham dinner with potato salad and carrot salad.

  3. Maryann D. says:

    When I was a child, we were excited to dress up on Easter Morning and go to church. Of course I always looked forward to my Easter Basket with candy in it!
    My favorite recipe on would be the Coconut Marshmallow Nests. These look delicious and cute.

  4. Jim MItten says:

    Well, let’s see… it “DEPENDS” on what we’re doing for Easter which is my favorite tradition! ;-) Actually having Ham, deviled eggs and pickled beets is a tradition here. We don’t hide eggs (heck, we can’t find about half the stuff we purposely put down!) And most of the time Eric works, so that people with kids can spend it with them. This year is an odd year (changing schedules), so we do have the time off. We’ve been talking about making a whirl-wind trip to the folks’ places….

    As for the Hershey website – I LOVE those racers. If we had kids I’d SO be making them!!! :-)

  5. Susan Christy says:

    My favorite traditions are church and brunch with the family, then an egg hunt for the kids. I want to make the foil egg wreath.

    Where i grew up seasonally was not ideal for Easter egg hunting, so mom would hide jelly beans around the house and my sister and i would race tofind the most :-)

    Mini easter egg tree craft

  25. We color eggs as a family every year. I would love to try the chocolate egg wreath on the Hershey’s site. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  26. Jannine Fisk says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is the making of what my family calls “Cassada” which is basically a baked ricotta pie made with a sugar cookie crust and dusted with cinnamon. My maternal grandmother always made them for everyone and her children have passed the tradition down to their children. It’s a delicious way to remember our heritage. My favorite recipe on the Celebrate with Hershey’s site is the Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake. Not sure why it only has 1 star – it looks like a winner to me! Thanks for another fun giveaway :)

  27. Janice E says:

    Egg-dyeing sessions – typically messy but so much fun!

  28. June Lisle says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is reading the Bible with my husband and my favorite craft is the HERSHEY’S KISSES Caramel Flowers.

  31. D Schmidt says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is to hide eggs around the house with clues for my children to follow! Visited the site and my favorite recipe is MOUNDS Coconut Easter Basket Cake

  32. Now that all the kids in our families are grown, my favorite tradition is watching everyone fight over my handmade chocolate eggs. It’s not as rough as it sounds. It makes me feel great that they all want the eggs so badly! The Grand Finale Cheesecake looks amazing:)

  33. HuskerGal says:

    My favorite tradition is dying Easter Eggs. I want to try the peanut butter bunny cakes, because my daughter loves bunnies!

  34. My favorite Easter tradition will always be the Easter Egg Hunt. I guess I’ll be a kids forever in that way…followed by bringing branches of willow and swirly Hazelnut tree inside to see them sprout within 10 days or so. I like to put some natural lighter green and warm yellow decoration accents into my house to welcome Spring.

    On the Hershey’s website I immediately had my eye on the Reese’s racers and given that the reeses eggs are on sale this week at CVS I have made a shopping list for those and the other ingredients in the REESES RACERS. My kids are grown but they still like to make little crafts and share them with their much younger cousins and neighbor’s kids. Thank you for pointing me to that site!

    Additionally I like that you used very sweet and crunchy sweets in your Easter Bark Candy Malt, but also some dark chocolate to keep things in balance. I’ll bring out the taste of the sweeter ingredients. It is also on my shopping list to buy its ingredients. As you can tell: We love sweets!! But don’t worry, we like to exercise regularly and eat healthy foods, too!! Everything in moderation and balanced, right :)

    Thank you again for all!

  35. I love the family Easter egg hunt the best! I’m exciting to try the Easter basket cupcakes.

  36. Alexandra V says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is eating Ham with my parents, siblings, and now nephews. Unfortunately my grandparents are no longer with us to celebrate but I loved having them as well. My favorite desert is the peanut butter eggs!

  37. Tradition: Coloring the eggs. We used to do that with grandparents and cousins around the big dining room table covered with the same pastel-stained table cloth year after year.
    Hershey recipe: That velvety chocolate cream pie looks delicious.
    (Although, Snappy Gourmet, I’m a sucker for treats with only THREE ingredients, so I’ll have to try that bark stuff soon!)

  38. Karen Propes says:
  39. Dawn Monroe says:

    We love hiding Easter eggs for our grandkids. We had a couple years off because our kids were to big but were glad we get to do it again. Id like to try the miniature easter egg tree craft with them.

  40. my favorite recipe is the coconut marshmallow nest, and i love making homemade pb eggs!

  41. Debbie Welchert says:

    We color Easter eggs for Easter. On Easter the kids have an Easter egg hunt in the backyard and then they get their Easter baskets. My favorite recipe is Hershey’s Premier White Chips and Macadamia Pieces Cookies.

  42. Sarah Hall says:

    We always color and hide eggs for the children. I would like to make the Easter Bunny Egg Racers.

  43. Margie Stryker says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is spending time with my family. We all bring a favorite dish to share and just sit around watching the younger kids search for hidden eggs. I would and might actually try to make the Reeses minature Easter baskets or, especially the little kids, the Spring Hop Scotch.

  44. Melissa C. says:

    Love the Vroom Vroom craft!

  45. Lynzee Mathews says:

    My favorite Easter tradition would be painting Easter eggs! And my favorite recipe would be the chocolately peanut brittle! Yummmm!

  46. Roseann M says:

    Tradition was a stuffed animal in the Easter basket. I still have my small white lamb and I am also retirement age.

    Would love to make the Reese’s Racer egg cars

  47. Of course we love to color eggs and have Easter egg hunts but my favorite tradition is to tell the story of Easter from the bible and discuss it with the kids. They usually have a lot of questions etc. :)

    • Almost forgot to mention…. DUH! The eggs are filled with plenty of Hersey chocolate eggs and robin eggs. :)

  48. Hi! Our Easter traditions include dyeing eggs, making homemade peanut butter and coconut cream eggs and having the family over to enjoy Easter dinner with us. Our children are older, but it’s still fun to fill baskets for them, who doesn’t love Easter goodies!

    The Easter Basket cake is beautiful. Can’t wait to try that. We’ve done bunny cakes and egg shaped cakes other years so this will be a nice change. Happy Easter to you and your family and thanks for the great recipes and ideas.

  49. Favorite Easter tradition is the easter egg hunt we have after dinner. The bigger kids hide the eggs for the smaller ones find them. Very amusing for the entire family.

    Favorite recipe from the Hershey site is the black-eyed susan cheesecakes. Reminds me of summer flowers.

  50. Melissa L. says:

    My favorite Easter tradition is finding the eggs. And my favorite recipe on the site is the peanut butter bonnets. Too cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

  51. That bark looks amazing!
