Birthday Cake Candy Bark Recipe

Birthday Cake Candy Bark Recipe

This Birthday Cake Candy Bark is a delightful confection that combines the fun and festivity of a birthday party with the simplicity of homemade candy bark.

We've used white chocolate candy melts in this recipe for a delicious, easy-to-make recipe. If using real chocolate (ingredient list will list cocoa butter and/or cocoa liquor), then the chocolate should be tempered, or the bark will remain tacky or have streaks throughout.

Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper onto the counter. If the white chocolate is in block form, chop the chocolate into uniform pieces. Place the white chocolate candy wafers or chopped chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl.

Melt the chocolate using 20 second intervals, stirring in between to ensure the chocolate melts evenly and doesn’t scorch. Continue melting until the chocolate is fluid.
Immediately add the birthday cake candy crunch bits.

How to Store Birthday Party Bark

Birthday Party bark can be kept at room temperature for several weeks. You can also make the candy bark up to 4 months ahead of time if you freeze the bark. For best results, place the candy in a candy box that is lined with plastic wrap. Wrap the entire box with plastic wrap, and then a layer of foil. Place in the freezer for up to two months. Bring the chocolate to room temperature before unwrapping the box.
