Looking for a last-minute Easter treat? This colourful bark comes together quickly with white chocolate and brightly coloured jelly beans – mini ones work best, distributing themselves most effectively through the bark. Use this as inspiration to create bark out of whatever small Easter candy you have hiding in your house.
