  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 bark pieces 1x


This Easter bark recipe has the perfect blend of sweet and salty flavors made with creamy white candy melts, crunchy pretzels, mini chocolate eggs, colorful cereal, and pastel-colored M&M’s, all topped off with a sprinkle of pastel-colored sprinkles. This sweet treat is not only delicious but also the perfect addition to your holiday festivities!



  • 36 ounces (1020g) white candy melts, divided (I used Wilton bright white candy melts)
  • 7.3-ounce bag (206g) of mini chocolate eggs with candy-coated shell, such as Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 2 cups pretzels (I used Butter Snaps pretzels)
  • 4 cups assorted cereal (I used a combination of Kix, Chex & Cheerios)
  • 10-ounce bag (283g) of easter m&m’s (or other small pastel-colored chocolate candy)
  • ¼ cup pastel-colored sprinkles


  1. Line the bottom of a large 17” baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Coarsely chop mini chocolate eggs into ¼” pieces and set aside.
  3. Combine pretzels and cereal in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Place candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in short bursts of 15 – 30 seconds until just starting to melt. Let sit and stir until smooth.
  5. Spread ½ cup of the melted candy onto parchment paper. Working quickly, smooth the mixture out to the edges. 
  6. Mix 3 ½ cups of the melted candy into the cereal mixture (if the chocolate has hardened, simply reheat for 10 seconds in a microwave oven).
  7. Pour cereal out onto a baking sheet and spread evenly to the edges. 
  8. Sprinkle with chopped chocolate eggs, m&m’s, and sprinkles while the melted candy is still warm
  9. Drizzle with remaining ½ cup melted candy.
  10. Wait 15 minutes prior to cutting to let your bark harden.
