It’s a fun twist on traditional candy bark with M&Ms, sprinkles and colored candy coating drizzle! Perfect for spring and Easter!

My favorite part is that it all comes together with just a few ingredients and get this. . .a microwave. Yep, no-bake, baby. Just the way I {we} like it.

I found three fun candy coating colors at the store the other day that I just couldn’t pass up. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. I also have a plan for what I have left over. Stay tuned for part II of the candy coating fun!

So, I literally poured the melted white candy coating onto a baking sheet I covered with a Silpat liner. Then I just drizzled on the three other colors in a very random way, taking care to make sure I got color all the way to the edges of the white coating.

I seriously had never heard of Easter Sundae M&Ms. And why is that? Well, because they’re new. . .and I’m thinking they’re only seasonal. Soooo. . .if you can’t find the same flavor of M&Ms it’s okay! Any color or flavor will do. It will taste just as delicious, I promise!

After the bark has cooled in the fridge, take it out and break it up into smaller pieces. This stuff is sweet, so just a small piece will do. I used my hands to break up the bark. If you use a knife, run the knife under hot water first, dry it off and then slice into the bark. You’ll be able to cut it easier.

I mean, how pretty is this?! You know I love colorful desserts. Colorful desserts are kid magnets. The minute my son saw this bark he was asking 20 questions about it. First and foremost, “Did you take pictures of this already?” and “Can I eat it?” The first question is one that’s heard in a food blogger’s home almost every day. Yes, honey. I took the pictures. And yes, go ahead and try it.

Long story short, (I won’t go through the other 20 questions which were basically about how I got all the colors on there. . .) this candy bark received high marks from the kiddos. And I’m pretty sure it will receive high marks from you, too! This bark can be stored for up to two weeks, so make this ahead of time and serve it up on Easter day! It may just give that beautiful ham a run for its money!
