EASY FIVE INGREDIENT CHRISTMAS BARK
Glass measuring Cup
1/2 bag of Wilton Candy Melts White
1/2 bag of Wilton Candy Melts Green
1/3 bag of Wilton Candy Melts Red
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place bag of wilton candy melts in a microwave-safe dish (I used a Pyrex measuring cup) and heat on 50% power for 1.5 mins, stir, then microwave at 50% power for 1 min or until fully melted and smooth upon stirring. Pour melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet and spread out with an offset spatula until evenly distributed. (Note: your bark can be as thick or thin as you would like just depends on how thin you spread the chocolate).
Swirl with a knife until all colors are mixed through. The knife allows for swirling of colors but not mixing of the colors so each color stays it’s original shade.
Sprinkle with M&Ms.
Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles.
Place in the fridge to set (approximately 30 minutes)
Once hardened break into bite-sized pieces.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
