Whether you have birthday parties ahead or you’re enjoying the last of summer season get togethers, this Easy, Festive Candy Bark recipe makes a fun treat to serve. You can personalize it with your favorite toppings!
This Easy, Festive Candy Bark recipe isn’t something you’d make all the time, but there comes a time when you need a treat for upcoming birthday parties or get togethers! This candy bark is an easy way to share small bites of something sweet and fun.
For this recipe, I used almond bark. Oddly, there are neither almonds nor white chocolate in almond bark.
Almond bark is actually the white candy coating that melts very easily, made to dip and cover treats. It sets up easily, too, making it the perfect base for this Festive Candy Bark recipe.
The fun part of this candy bark is that you can personalize it. Use your favorite toppings and use colors (or sprinkles) for a specific theme (think St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, colors of your favorite sports team, etc.).
The possibilities are endless when it comes to making this candy!
I found a 1-pound package of this white almond bark (you might see the name as “white” or “vanilla coating” at my local grocery store in the baking aisle. It came in its own tray to pop in the microwave to melt – no fuss, no muss.

- Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.

This is a fun treat to serve when you want to share a bite of candy. I served mine in colorful cupcake liners.
I have a recipe for Chocolate Bark with Pistachios and Sea Salt that uses bittersweet chocolate, but the process to make it is a little different from this recipe. It’s still quite easy to make, but it’s not necessarily one that kids will love – save it for the adults!
