Galaxy Bark

Melt candy melts in separate bowls (one at a time) in the microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted

Line a baking dish with parchment paper

Pour black chocolate onto parchment paper – you could also use purple. On this tutorial the camera picked up more purple, but I assure you its black. It darkens up as it hardens to bark.

Drizzle blue and purple chocolate over the black chocolate

Use a butter knife to “slice” through the melted chocolate. You want it to look like swirls.

Sprinkle with glitter stars and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes to harden. These glitter stars are edible and really make it look like the sky!

Once the bark is hard, dust with pearl dust using a clean paint brush. The pearl dust is a wonderful illusion that finishes up the bark. Also totally edible!
