Easter Bunny Bark

Easy Easter bark is all done in the microwave and made with a handful of ingredients making this a no-bake easy dessert treat that even the kids can make on their own.

Each piece of chocolate bark is adorned with an adorable bunny rabbit and yummy sprinkles. I used chocolate for the base then added a layer of pink candy melts on top.

White candy melts are used to form the bunny face and ears, and sugar pearls for the noses. I used a black food coloring pen to add eyes, but they’re just as cute without them.

Honestly, there are so many different ways you could decorate yours.

Add extra candies, chocolates, and sprinkles to yours! Feel free to get creative with it!

Easter bunny bark, like Easter bunny dessert cheese ball and Easter chick dipped wafer cookies, is basically an Easter craft activity you can eat!

Why you’ll love Easy Bunny Bark

Fun for the whole family – This is a kitchen activity that parents and kids can take part in! It’s so easy, even older siblings can guide the younger kids while you sit back and watch.

They make great gifts – Once set, you can wrap them in cellophane bags or place them in sandwich bags to give as party favors or to pack in a school lunch bag.

Super simple – With just 4 simple ingredients, no use of the stove or oven, and 10 minutes of prep time, this is one of those quick and easy easter treats you’ll keep coming back to.

Customizable – You can decorate your Easy bunny bark any way you want! I love to keep it simple so the cute bunny doesn’t get lost in all the extra add-ons, but you do you!

Equipment you’ll need


Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.

  • Chocolate – I used a mix of German baking chocolate (leftover from my crockpot peanut clusters) and chopped chocolate from a Trader Joe’s Pound Plus bar. I don’t recommend using chocolate chips because they don’t melt as nicely, but if that’s all you have, it will work.
  • Pink Candy Melts – Melting wafers are so easy to use, but if you have vanilla almond bark and some food coloring you can use that instead. Michaels has a wide variety of colors & any will work. Shown is “light pink”.
  • Round White Candy Melts – I recommend sticking with the melting wafers because they’re what we use to make the little bunny face and ears, but white chocolate chips could work. Cutting the candy melts in half (for the ears) is something you should do ahead of time because the candy melts tend to set quickly.
  • Pastel Sprinkles – Pastel colors not only represent Easter, but also sunshine and warmth, which is definitely a sign of spring! We love adding pastel colors to all of our favorite Easter candy.
  • Sugar Pearls – These little balls come in all kinds of colors, but we’re using pink for the nose. They stand out against the white bunny rabbits.

How to make Easter Bark

  1. Step One: Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals and stir until smooth. Spread the melted chocolate onto a parchment lined cookie sheet to about 1/8″ – 1/4” thick. It does not need to be spread to all corners of the pan, as long as it’s in an even layer. Pop the pan into the refrigerator to chill for about 10 minutes.

  1. Step Two: In another microwave safe bowl, melt the pink candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring between each one. Carefully spread it onto the set chocolate layer using an offset spatula to keep it smooth. Reserve a very small amount of the melted candy melts to use as “glue” to affix the noses to the bunny faces.

  1. Step Three: Next, place the white candy disks on the pink layer for the heads, evenly spaced across the melted candy base, leaving enough room between each bunny for their ears.

  1. Step Four: Take the white halves and place them above each bunny head for the ears.

  1. Step Five: Dip a toothpick into the reserved melted pink candy and place a drop onto the white head. Place a pink pearl sprinkle for the nose and then use a food coloring pen to make the eyes. Finally, scatter the colored sprinkles overtop the melted bark.

  1. Step Six: Move the pan to the fridge and allow the bark to fully set for about 10-15 minutes and then use a sharp knife to cut them into pieces with a full bunny head on each piece of easy bunny bark.

What to serve with Easy Bunny Bark

Adding pieces of bunny bark is always a fun addition to an Easter dessert tray. Other nibbles to have alongside them are slow cooker Easter candy and Easter egg Oreo truffles, making it one festive party platter!

But first, dinner!

You could go the traditional route with orange honey spiral ham, lamb, or crock pot roast beef. Or maybe this year you’re up for making a less traditional but equally delicious vodka rigatoni!

Complete your meal with cheesy asparagus puffs and a couple of other side dishes.

Tips & Substitutions 🐰

  • Choose any pastel color you prefer for the top layer.
  • You can skip the chocolate layer altogether and just use the candy melts as the base if you prefer.
  • If you notice your melted candy isn’t smooth enough, add a teaspoon of vegetable oil or coconut oil to thin it out a bit.
  • Don’t skip the parchment paper. It keeps the melted candy from sticking but also makes for easy cleanup of the sprinkles.
  • Don’t spread the base too thin or it will be too fragile and break apart where it shouldn’t break.
  • For clean edges, wipe your knife in between slices.
  • You’ll want to work fairly quickly as candy melts tend to set pretty quickly. Have all your supplies laid out and ready to assemble.
  • You can also use a piping bag or zip top bag with melted candy melts to pipe the “glue” on for the nose.
  • Additional add-ons to the bark could be any of your favorite Easter candy. Pastel colored jelly beans, M&Ms, mini marshmallows, robin eggs, milk chocolate eggs, chocolate chips, etc.
  • You can also replace the white candy melts with ready-made chocolate bunnies or bunny graham crackers, if preferred.

How to store leftovers

Easy bunny bark stores well at room temperature in an airtight container.

How long with Easter bunny bark last in the fridge?

Although these are just fine at room temperature, you can keep them in the fridge if you’d like. They’ll be good for a couple of weeks.

Can I freeze bunny bark?

You can! When you’re ready to eat it again, let it sit out for a while so that way it’s not rock solid when you bite into a piece.

What is the easiest way to cut the candy bark?

I know, I know, part of the fun of making bark is breaking it into pieces once it’s set! However, if you want a full bunny face on each piece, you’re going to have to cut around them in empty spaces.

First off, you want to do it once it is set, but not rock hard. Once it’s super hard, it’ll be harder to cut.

You can also score it first with a sharp knife, then use your hands to break it apart along the lines.

Can I substitute a silicone baking mat for parchment paper?

Sure you can! Since we’re not baking anything, there’s absolutely no difference in the outcome. As long as it doesn’t stick and it helps with cleaning, you can certainly use it.

Should I use a double boiler?

It’s not necessary in this case. If you prefer to use the stovetop rather than the microwave to melt your wafers, you can melt them directly in a pot. Once melted, follow the rest of the recipe as directed.

Easy bunny bark is a festive, no-bake Easter treat that starts with a layer of chocolate, topped with a layer of melted pink candy wafers, and decorated with bunnies made out of white candy melts with pastel-colored pearl sprinkle noses.


  • 4 ounces chocolate baking bar semi-sweet or dark chocolate
  • 12 ounces pink candy melts one bag – any color can be used

  • Dip a toothpick into the remaining pink candy melt (reheat if it has already firmed up), and dab a dot onto the white disk and immediately add a pink pearl sprinkle for the nose.
  • Use a black food coloring pen to add the eyes to each bunny.
  • Scatter the colored sprinkles on top of the melted candy bark.
