This melt-in-your-mouth candy, affectionately called Bunny Bark, is made from only 2 simple ingredients, and is ready in just a few minutes! Naturally sweetened, Bunny Bark, will be a popular (healthy) stand-in for traditional Easter candy!
Easter is almost here and the Easter candy is out in full force everywhere I look! Cadbury Eggs, chocolate bunnies, peeps of all colors and shapes, speckled chocolate eggs, peanut butter eggs, and of course those ever popular colorful jelly beans! Do you have a favorite Easter candy??
I don’t know if I could pick just one. I definitely had a Cadbury Egg phase where I would try (usually unsuccessfully) to eat the yellow part of the sugary yolk last. I was convinced it tasted different and better than the rest, but now that I am older and wiser, I’m not so sure that is the case… Anyway, let’s just say it was a super messy endeavor!
I also loved those big fat jellybeans- the super-sized ones. I would eat all the red ones and leave the yellow and orange ones for my sisters lol.
I also was the oldest of 3 girls (sorry dad!) and my stride length and height gave me a definite advantage on the playing field of Easter egg hunting. Usually my parents would make me fork over the extra eggs in an effort “to be fair,” which I never understood, I mean, wasn’t it a contest? It is called an Easter Egg HUNT after all.
Now, this year, I am the one doing the Easter egg hiding, and I am looking forward to watching my lo run around and find all the eggs. I even bought a few eggs early to start his training. I want him to be in tip top Easter egg hunting shape. haha just kidding. (kind of)
But what I will do is fill the eggs with fun things like stickers, healthy fruit snacks, and toys. I am trying my best to keep an overload of sugar out of our diets, and that is so hard to avoid these days if you don’t pay attention. Easter can still be just as much fun, and can bring you and your children joy, without the sugar overload!
This Bunny Bark will be a great way to satisfy that Easter candy craving without producing a serious sugar coma. Don’t be intimidated, because it is seriously the easiest to make with only 2 ingredients!
And its so colorful and festive! Indulge with no guilt!
- 1 cup coconut butter
- 1/4 cup creamed honey (regular honey will work, but the bark will have more of a yellow hue)
- natural food coloring (optional)
Combine and melt the coconut butter and honey in a saucepan over low heat. Stir vigorously until smooth.
If using food coloring (or a teaspoon of fruit juice is another option), separate the melted mixture into several bowl, add food coloring of choice and mix.
Pour the colored mixture onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and spread with a rubber spatula.
Let it cool in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes then break into pieces with a knife or your hands. Store in the fridge.
