Healthier Easter Bunny Bark

  • Choose dark chocolate chips: Dark chocolate generally has a lower sugar content and more fiber than milk chocolate.
  • Select healthier candies: Opt for candies made with natural ingredients and less sugar. For example, consider dried fruit, chopped nuts, or yogurt-coated candies.
  • Use portion control: While delicious, chocolate candy bark is a treat. Enjoy it in moderation and be mindful of your serving size.

How do you cut bunny bark neatly?

Presenting perfect bark is easy! Here’s the scoop:

  1. Chill Out: Pop your Bunny Bark in the fridge for 30 minutes. The chilled chocolate cuts cleaner and crumbles less.
