A simple and fast patriotic dessert
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 pieces
Author: Linden Three

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces red candy melts
  • 12 ounces white candy melts
  • 6 ounces blue candy melts
  • red, white, and blue sprinkles

Instructions

  • Have all of your sprinkles ready. Lay out a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper to make the bark on.
  • Heat the candy melts, each color in separate bowls, as per package directions. Heat them at the same time as much as possible so one does not get hard while waiting for others to melt.
  • When the candy melts are melted, spoon each color in alternating spots on the silicone baking mat. Continue until all of the candy is used, not leaving any gaps.
  • Use a knife or spatula to swirl the colors together as much or as little as desired.
  • Immediately top the candy with sprinkles as desired.
  • Let sit until the candy has hardened. Break the bark into pieces.

Notes

Get red candy melts here, white candy melts here, and blue candy melts here.  You can also find these at your local craft store.  I recommend the bright white candy melts as regular white can look a little yellow.  I also use the dark blue candy melts instead of the regular, lighter blue.
Use any sprinkles you would like.  I love these red, white, and blue stars and these gold star sprinklesRed sugar sprinkles, white sugar sprinkles, and blue sugar sprinkles are also great options.
