My cousin and her family came up to a visit this Easter and I always take their visit as an opportunity to do a project with them that is something meant for kids but that I really want to try myself! So last year we made fairy gardens in small trays and pots and this year we made Unicorn Bark!!!
What is Unicorn Bark you say!? It is basically white and coloured chocolate melted and poured on baking paper with sprinkles on top. I am not even sure how I discovered this but as soon as I did I knew I needed to make some. The most challenging part was melting the chocolate, not that we don’t have lots of experience doing that (we make chocolate truffles every year for xmas) but we were all feeling a little impatient. Our top tip would be to leave plenty of time for this and make sure you don’t get the chocolate too hot. The best way to melt chocolate is in a dish over a saucepan with a little water in the bottom. I am sure there are a bunch of videos out there all about it so I won’t say any more on that part.
The best part of course is the decorating and you can use anything edible that you want. I was amazed by the choice of sprinkles out there in the world today and of course you can use gummy candies, marshmallows, popping candy, pretzels and more. Everyone really enjoyed making it and eating it too. With the colour scheme you could have called it Easter bark but unicorns are just so in right now!!
