This is a delicious recipe reminiscent of the peppermint bark made at Christmastime that uses a favorite Easter treat. Fun and easy to make too! Everyone really enjoys the combination of creamy white chocolate and fruity jellybeans. Use your favorite, but I always go for the small pectin variety. Hope you enjoy!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Line a jelly roll pan with waxed paper and set aside.

    Advertisement
  • Melt the white confectioners' coating in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Spread the melted white confectioners' coating onto the prepared pan. Sprinkle the jellybeans over the top.

  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces to serve.

Cook's Note:

For something different, drizzle a little melted semisweet chocolate over the cooled bark before breaking it into pieces.

The chocolate referred to in the recipe is the white confectioners' coating. Although they are slightly different, i.e. white chocolate is made with cocoa butter and confectioner's coating is made with vegetable fats. Some people use them interchangeably in certain recipes, especially if it is being used for coating. I think they say the confectioners' coating melts better than the white chocolate itself. Hope this helps! :) Read More

Too sweet. Looked really cute but couldn't give it away. Next time will add in bits of pretzel to add some salt. Read More

Fun to make. I also use Starburst jellybeans. Sometimes I even use a little red food die to make the coating pink and used the Red Fruits Starbursts for a Valentine's Day/Breast Cancer fundraiser broken into bits and portioned out into see-through gift bags and tied with a pink ribbon. My kids especially love to make this. VERY sweet. Read More

Instead of pouring the chocolate onto a jelly roll pan, I decided to try something different. I put 4 jelly beans into an egg mold and then spooned the coating around them. What I ended up having was jellybean eggs. I think the kids will love these at our family Easter celebration. Read More

Oh this was soo much fun!!! I used my Perfect Brownie Pan line the pan with foil then pour in the melted almond bark then put in the divider and added my jelly beans. Put in the refrigerator and I popped them out when then they were cool I will so do this again like this because they were just perfectly uniform and soo pretty. Read More

This was surprisingly excellent! I never buy confectioners coating but when I found this recipe I bought it to try this. I used a fruity mix of Jelly Belly jellybeans. You can easily adjust this recipe to make as much or as little as you need. It really had a great flavor. I will be making this again in the future.......thanks Christina! Read More

Fun and Festive! I loved the simiplicity of it but somehow it really looks impressive and inviting to eat! I did one batch of white bark with jelly beans and another batch of chocolate bark with easter M&Ms. Both looked great and were a hit. I used Jolly Ranchers flavored jelly beans and they were good...but I missed some of the colors other brands offer. That's the thing to keep in mind... get a wide variety of colors for the best presentation. Still worked well though! Read More
