We realize this culinary concoction is patently absurd. However, how could one resist such colorful, happy fun? After seeing various versions of Peeps Bark online, it was obvious that we needed to create our own decadent version. Multiple colors of white chocolate, M&Ms chocolate eggs, candy sprinkles and, of course, our favorite Peeps candies are twirled and swirled together in a psychedelic blend of groovy goodness. It’s surprisingly tasty, too. This is one you can make with the kids, but food coloring will stain so we suggest aprons and gloves.
Gather your ingredients and get everything prepared to roll before you start. Once you melt the chocolate, you have about 15 minutes to work before it starts to set. We recommend using a microwave for melting, this will temper the chocolate and speed things along.

M & Ms Milk Chocolate Speckled Eggs
Candy Flower Sprinkles
Nestle’s White chocolate chips
2 Nestle’s White Chocolate Bars (break into pieces and place equal amounts into three bowls)
McCormick Neon Food Color in Blue, Pink, Green
Prepare a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
Put all of the chips in a bowl.
Break chocolate bars into small pieces and place equal amounts in three bowls. Drop 2-3 drops of food coloring in each.
Heat chips in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. If you need to melt it more, do so in 10-20 second intervals. Make sure to stir in between, the chips melt further when you stir.
Use spatula to spread chocolate on cookie sheet. It should be about 1/4″ thick.
Heat all three bowls of bar chocolate at the same time, melting and stirring as you did with the chips. You can adjust the color with the food coloring if you want it to be brighter. Just be careful not to add too much or the chocolate will become bitter.
Blob the colored melted chocolate on top of the layer of white chocolate on the tray using a spatula or spoon. Keep the color blobs separated and leave some white areas exposed.
Use a skewer to pull through the chocolate from top to bottom. I pulled every couple of inches.
Moving from side to side, pull through the chocolate again with the skewer. You can opt to swirl the skewer as you pull or do circles, have fun! Don’t overdo this or the colors will blend and you’ll lose the tie dye effect.
While chocolate is still warm, add Peeps, M&Ms, and finish with the candy sprinkles.
Place tray in freezer for several minutes. Take out and let the chocolate finish setting.
Carefully break into large chunks. This makes about seven large chunks, make more depending on your crowd.
Who knew Peeps could be so groovy?
We bagged ours up in a Ziplock and used a tape runner to add a scrapbook paper handle. So fun for an Easter basket!
