Christmas is here!! Excited? Listening to non-stop Christmas songs? Or still wrapping up presents? No matter how busy you are, I know you are waiting for the big Christmas Day. If you are looking for a last minute dessert or gift idea, I got that covered, too.
This M&M white chocolate bark has Christmas written all over it. Look at all those Christmas colors – white, red and green. Making this is so much fun. You don’t need any cooking expertise to make this bark. Even your kids can help you with decorating the bark with those cute M&Ms.
Yesterday I was thinking about a last minute Christmas idea for the blog, and this colorful M&M white chocolate bark popped up in the mind. Everyone in the family were involved in making this bark, and it was truly an amazing experience for all. Above all, this proved to be the simplest Christmas treat ever. I can’t really describe how good and chocolatey these barks are! Simply awesome!
For the base of this Christmas bark, I opted for white chocolate which clearly depicts the white, snowy world of Christmas. When it comes to melting the chocolate, stick to the instructions on packet for better results. Microwaving (like I did) is the the quickest and easiest method. However, if you have time, try double boiling to melt chocolate.
M&Ms add the right amount of color to the white base. I chose red and green, but if you prefer, you can add other colors too. Place them down one by one in any pattern you like. Apart from M&Ms, one thing I really want you to add to this bark is peppermint or candy canes. Simply crush them using a rolling pin, and sprinkle it over the bark. How easy is that!
Let everyone in the family get involved, and it’s going to be a fun day. Honestly, I had way too much fun making this Christmas bark. Make it for yourself, or wrap in foil for a cute, edible Christmas present.
- 290g white chocolate buttons (I used Nestle chocolate melts)
- ¾ cup red and green M&Ms
- Place white chocolate buttons in a heatproof bowl, and melt in microwave following the packet instructions. (If there is no instruction, place chocolate in microwave and melt on high for 60 seconds. Stir, and return the chocolate to the microwave, and heat for another 30 seconds. Stir again)
- Pour melted chocolate into a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread it lightly to form a rectangle. Decorate with M&Ms. Press the chocolate buttons lightly into the white chocolate. Set aside for 2 hours in room temperature, or refrigerate for 20 minutes until firm.
- Use a sharp knife or your hands to break it up into uneven pieces. Serve at room temperature.
