Valentine’s Day Candy Bark

Hi friends!

Are you guys ready for this? My very first recipe post. I’m excited :) Are you? I have an insane sweet tooth. (I’m slightly addicted to Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Have you tried the limited batch, Cannoli yet? It’s amazing.) It’s okay though because my husband does too. Normally when I bake something it’s gone before I eat too much of it anyway, ha. I appreciate that about him. The last few days I have been baking up a storm fixing all of my husband’s favorite treats. Since he’s is deployed my poor kitchen has been really deprived. Not much cooking or baking going on. It’s true, it’s not much fun cooking for one :) But lately I’ve been in the kitchen baking up a storm. I’m getting together a fun Valentine’s Day care package for him. It’s full of his favorite snacks, candies, homemade goodies, and no care package is complete without pictures of our sweet P. One of the treats I just know he will love. It combines my love for candy bark and his love for m&m’s. During the holidays I adore peppermint bark! This past Christmas, I didn’t make any (shame on me) so I thought why not skip the peppermint and make some cutesy Valentine’s Day Candy Bark instead!

Valentines Day Candy Bark


This is seriously the easiest recipe you’ll ever make. You can add any candy you’d like. Even pretzels or oreos would work well in this delicious bark. I kept it simple with just m&m’s and sprinkles. Okay, recipe time.

Valentine’s Day Candy Bark:


White chocolate chips (24 oz)

m&m’s or your favorite candy in Valentine colors (1 bag)



Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Using a double boiler, melt your chocolate over medium heat, stirring constantly until it’s smooth.

Carefully pour chocolate onto the lined cookie sheet and spread to even out.

Sprinkle m&ms and sprinkles over top. 

Lightly press toppings into the chocolate.

Refrigerate for about one hour or until hard and break apart.

*Since I’ll be popping these in the mail. I wrapped it in plastic wrap and put in a tin.*

    Chelsea, that looks DELICIOUS! What a pretty and easy to make treat. I have a seriously huge sweet tooth myself, so I know I would love these. I’m sure your hubby will enjoy them too. I’m so appreciative of his service to our country, and you and your little girl for your sacrifice in letting him go. Just in case I haven’t told you before. :) Have a great day!

    I allways love these kind of recipes but they allways fail when i try them. When the chocolate is hard it gets all white, super ugly and absolutely not very jummie..
