Easter Marshmallow Bark


I made one of the easiest recipes I have ever made over the weekend. It literally took me 5 minutes.
I love super easy recipes and ones that have as few ingredients as possible. 


Easter Marshmallow Bark

 Ingredients:
1 bag white chocolate chips (12 oz)
3 cups mini rainbow marshmallows
1 TBSP shortening (this is optional but it helps with the melting process)
Easter sprinkles or other fun sprinkles that you prefer. 

Line a 8x11 glass dish with parchment paper. 

Put white chocolate and shortening in a medium sized glass bowl. Melt in the microwave for 1 minute. Give it a small stir and then return to the microwave for 30 second increments, until the chocolate melts completely when you stir it. Do not go over 2 minutes. You do not want to burn it.

After the chocolate is melted, add the marshmallows and stir to coat. You want to do this kind of quickly-be sure the chocolate coats the marshmallows wells, but if you take to long the marshmallows will melt begin to melt which you do not want.

Transfer the chocolate and marshmallow to your glass dish. Using a rubber spatula, make sure the marshmallows extend to the edge of the dish. Press down slightly to make it all even.  Shake on whatever sprinkles you would like on top of them.

Put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes, until the chocolate is set. You want to do this so it cools the mixture as quickly as possible. You don't want to melt your marshmallows. 

Remove it from the freezer and let it set on the counter and return to room temperature. Use a cookie cutter if you like but use a metal one and spray the edges with cooking spray first. I just used a plastic knife. 

Enjoy!
