3 Ingredients Easter Coconut Bark
Today in 4 weeks is Easter Monday and this fun baking season will be over and out. So we need to enjoy this time as much as possible. I’ve thought it’s a good idea to show you an Easter baking series to get you well prepared for this time.
Two weeks ago I started this baking season with Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. It’s definitely a good choice for Easter Holiday when you have company.
This Easter Coconut Bark is the 2nd Easter recipe, but not a baking kind. It’s more a fun recipe which you can do when you have serious chocolate or coconut cravings (or both) and don’t want to turn on the oven. Or do it with your kiddos and have fun!
What are your classic Easter recipes? Do you have that special kind of must-have baking recipes for this season? Or do you stay flexible and change it every year? I’m half/half. I love developing new recipes all the time. But I also have such favorites on my baking list to which I always come back over and over again.
The Easter season is a colorful time, and I love my life to be colorful. This is the reason why I made this beautiful Easter Coconut Bark. I chose the colors blue, pink, and yellow because it literally screams for spring and Easter.
You only need 3 ingredients to make this Easter Coconut Bark. Ingredient number 4 would be food coloring. But is totally optional, it only affects the look not the taste of this chocolate bark.
If you want to have your Easter Coconut Bark to be colorful, then you have different choices to get your chocolate bark colored.
Choice #1 – colored coconut flakes
This is the funniest way to get your chocolate bark colored. Therefore, put a 1/3 cup of coconut flakes into a zip-top bag, add 1 drop of food coloring and then….let the fun begin….shake it and scrunch it all around until the coconut flakes are colored evenly.
Choice #2 – colored white chocolate
You can also color the whole bark. Just melt white chocolate in the microwave and divide it into that many portions how many colors you want to have. In this case, please make sure that you have food coloring that works with chocolate. In every portion add one drop of food coloring and pour them onto a parchment paper. Let your phantasy be rollin’. You can use a toothpick to create a beautiful design.
Choice #3 – colored topping
You can also save a bit of white chocolate, color it and then drizzle over the white chocolate on top.
As you can see, I did go along with #1 and #3. I wanted to have a bright chocolate bark with colored coconut flakes and colored topping.
Super easy Coconut Chocolate Bark
Please please don’t use chocolate melts for this chocolate barks. Use high-quality chocolate to have the best possible chocolate enjoyment.
Melt chocolate in the microwave. Stir every 20 seconds to avoid seizing. Stir in coconut oil. Then stir in 2/3 of coconut flakes and pour onto a parchment paper layered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining coconut flakes.
This Easter Coconut Bark has an incredibly intense coconut flavor because of the added coconut oil. It also gives them a tenderly melting consistency when you bite into it.
So it’s time for you to get active….HAVE FUN!
