"This is a delicious recipe reminiscent of the peppermint bark made at Christmastime that uses a favorite Easter treat. Fun and easy to make too! Everyone really enjoys the combination of creamy white chocolate and fruity jellybeans. Use you favorite, but I always go for the small pectin variety. Hope you enjoy!" — Christina

white confectioners' coating
The chocolate referred to in the recipe is the white confectioners' coating. Although they are slightly different, i.e. white chocolate is made with cocoa butter and confectioner's coating is made with vegetable fats. Some people use them interchangeably in certain recipes, especially if it is being used for coating. I think they say the confectioners' coating melts better than the white chocolate itself. Hope this helps! :)
Too sweet. Looked really cute, but couldn't give it away. Next time will add in bits of pretzel to add some salt.
Fun to make. I also use Starburst jellybeans. Sometimes, I even use a little red food die to make the coating pink and used the Red Fruits Starbursts for a Valentine's Day/Breast Cancer fundraiser, broken into bits and portioned out into see-through gift bags and tied with a pink ribbon. My kids especially love to make this. VERY sweet.
Instead of pouring the chocolate onto a jelly roll pan, I decided to try something different. I put 4 jelly beans into an egg mold and then spooned the coating around them. What I ended up having was jellybean eggs. I think the kids will love these at our family Easter celebration.
This is so easy and so much fun to do! It's a great addition to Easter baskets. I used Starburst jelly beans, put these into clear treat bags and tied them with pretty bows using all different colored wire ribbon. This recipe is a definite keeper for future Easters!
This was surprisingly excellent! I never buy confectioners coating, but when I found this recipe I bought it to try this. I used a fruity mix of Jelly Belly jellybeans. You can easily adjust this recipe to make as much or as little as you need. It really had a great flavor. I will be making this again in the future.......thanks Christina!
Oh this was soo much fun!!! I used my Perfect Brownie Pan, line the pan with foil, then pour in the melted almond bark, then put in the divider and added my jelly beans. Put in the refrigerator and I popped them out when then they were cool, I will so do this again like this, because they were just perfectly uniform and soo pretty.
So quick and easy to make, looked great and tasted wonderful too. I did not have jellybeans so used M&M eggs as a sub. Thank you for sharing Christina!
