Get ready to make this and have everyone think you are SUPER cool (pin it so ya don't forget it):
Candy Bark of all forms is every where. I mean, I make peppermint bark every year and thought THAT was fancy, but now people are making a million iterations (how cool is this Pocky bark?!). I see Halloween Bark and Christmas Bark and ALL THE BARK in my future. Slash YOUR future.
But today, we're just going to start with 4th of July bark. It's fun. It's festive. It's easy as heck.
What you need to make it happen:
1 cup White chips
1 cup Wilton Blue Candy Melts (get them at Michael's, Joanns, Amazon)
1 cup Wilton Red Candy Melts
Pan lined with Parchment Paper
Something to swirl with (I used a wooden kabob skewer)
Red/White/Blue M&Ms, sprinkles, or other candy
Parchment lined baking sheet
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Separate your candy melts into 3 bowls and melt on medium-high heat in the microwave for 25 seconds at a time, until melted. If you choose to use Crisco to make melts thinner, use 1/2 Tbsp per color.
Step 2: Plop down (official term) your melted candy color by color, so they are all over the pan, touching but not overlapping. (Pro Tip: If you are using white chips instead of white candy melts, do the white last. It kind of got overpowered by the other colors!)
Step 3: Using a skewer (or another pointed object) start to slowly swirl your colors together, with long sweeping swirls. If you over-swirl (another official term) you'll end up with a pan of purple.
Step 4: While the candy is still melted, scatter M&Ms and sprinkles over it, and put in the refrigerator to cool/harden.
Step 5: Once fully hard, break into pieces and enjoy!
What (besides this) will you be making this 4th?
