Of all the things I love about Christmas, I think the thing I love the most is the excuse to indulge in all sorts of naughty sweet treats. I don’t think of myself as having a much of a sweet tooth, I’m definitely a savory kind of gal but once a year I like to treat myself to the odd chocolate or two, or three, or four! OK – a whole box!!! This year we wanted to make our own Christmas candy so inspired by Katherine Sabbath’s Unicorn chocolate, we made Christmas Candy Bark and it turned out to be soooooo cute!!

You Will Need:

1 Bag of White Candy Melts | 1 Bag of Pink Candy Melts | 1/2 Bag of Green Candy Melts | Selection of colorful sprinkles and edible confetti to decorate | Large baking tray | Baking Paper | Spatula | BBQ Skewer | Spoon |

Step 1

First line your baking tray with baking paper.

Step 2

Melt the white candy melts either in a microwave or on the hob. If using the microwave heat for 30 second intervals stirring each time until the chocolate has completely melted and become smooth.

Step 3

Now using the same method melt down your pink and green melts in separate bowls.

Step 4

Pour the white candy melt mixture onto your baking tray. At this point you might find some of your mixtures are beginning to thicken but don’t worry just simply reheat the candy to make it smooth again.
