Leprechaun Bark

This delicious candy bark is loaded with colorful and festive toppings. It’s a different flavor and texture in every bite and tastes so good you keep going back for more!

Finding fun and tasty treats to celebrate this Irish holiday is a little more difficult because a majority of St. Patricks day recipes are savory (or alcoholic). But this white chocolate bark is completely sweet and a refreshing change of pace. Kids and adults will love it!

Leprechaun Mint Chocolate Bark

Making festive holiday white chocolate bark candy is so much fun and customizable. Change out toppings for your favorite festive treats or change it completely so it’s good for another holiday. My White Chocolate Easter Bark is a great example of what festive creativity can bring.

Can I melt Almond Bar or Candy Wafers in the Microwave?

Yes, you can melt them in a microwave! Simply place them in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between each.

Something to note about chilling the candy bark

You’ll want to chill your white chocolate bark on the counter or let it set up in the fridge. While the fridge is the faster method, it’s easier to break into pieces if chilled on the counter.

What are some holiday variations?

A few examples would be using a mix of white candy bark and red and blue colored candies for a patriotic candy bark. Christmas bark would be great with crushed sugar cookies, chocolate bell candies and red, white, and green colored candies. You can get very creative with white chocolate bark to fit any holiday or theme.
