Jelly Bean Bark, a great way to incorporate left over Easter Jelly Beans, is a super easy kid friendly recipe that takes your jelly beans and wraps them up in white melty chocolate.
I can’t say that I love Jelly Beans. I can’t even say that I like Jelly Beans. But there is something about Jelly Belly’s that make me grab a handful and then grab another handful and then grab another handful…… I am sure you have been there.
So today, instead of just eating the 3000 Jelly Beans Chris got Charlotte and I for Valentines Day, we made Jelly Belly Bark (inspired by a recipe we saw in a Taste of Home cookbook).
Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
And so incredibly easy that you can nearly let your child loose on creating it themselves!

How to make Jelly Bean Bark
Just line your pan with foil and brush the foil with butter.
Melt your candy chocolate coating (I personally use almond bark) and spread into pan.
Sprinkle with Jelly Beans and let your bark set before breaking up into pieces.
Voila. Surgery, Yummy, Jelly Bean Bark Goodness!
And while it would definitely be a perfect snack for Easter (um, hello, Jelly Beans are like a staple for Easter) it’s also perfect for anytime. Like…well…now.
