Fourth of July Candy Bark Recipe
Ingredients & supplies
- Candy melts in the colors of your choice (I use Wilton candy melts)
- Something to melt the candy in (microwavable silicone containers work perfectly)
- Cookie sheet
- Wax paper
- Lollipop sticks for swirling colors
- Sprinkles in your favorite colors and/or shapes
- To prepare, line a cookie sheet with the wax paper.
- Following the instructions on the back of the candy melts package, melt them in the microwave.
- Pour melted candy onto the wax paper and let your children swirl the colors to make fun designs. Then add sprinkles on top before the candy has solidified.
- Refrigerate for several hours on the cookie sheet.
- Remove from the fridge and use a towel and hammer (or other hard tool) to break up the bark. Place on a decorative plate and enjoy!
