We all need some rainbow magic today!

It’s Monday. It’s winter. It’s all so very blah. Let’s put a little pep in our step this week with a sprinkle-tastic, marshmallow cereal exploding, pink swirly twirly white chocolate bark. Seriously, when is the last time you made something this colorful, happy, and absolutely MAGICAL? It’s pure fun. And a lot of sweet.

I made today’s bark recipe for 2 reasons. (1) Tomorrow is national cereal day. Did you know that? Grab a spoon, your favorite cereal bowl, and dig in. Or make this bark! And (2) it’s been way too long since I threw a shoutout in Sally’s Candy Addiction‘s way!

Ok, 3 reasons…

(3) Because lucky charms marshmallows are liiiiiife.

Ingredients for magical lucky charms bark on sallysbakingaddiction.com

You only need 3 ingredients!

White chocolate. The real deal. I’ve received some questions about using almond bark instead of chocolate when making bark. You can, yes. But all you’re eating is almond bark. It’s not baked or cooked or used as a coating. It’s solid almond bark. Pure white chocolate tastes a million times better, so go for the real thing. Especially when it’s the base ingredient. And when there’s only 3!

Lucky charms marshmallows. Duh. You can, of course, use the regular cereal too. As long as some marshmallows are on there!

Sprinkles. I love how bright and cheery pastel sprinkles look with the lucky charms marshmallows. I used Sweetapolita Luxury Sweet Sprinkle Twinkle medley as well as Betty Crocker pastel nonpareils (just found them in the baking aisle). I did just stumble across these adorable pastel sprinkles which would look just as fabulous.

And an optional 4th ingredient: pink or red food coloring to create pink swirls. Again, totally optional.

Melt down the white chocolate in a double boiler or microwave, then pour it out on top of a silicone baking mat lined baking sheet. If you want to add the pink swirls, reserve some melted white chocolate, mix in the food coloring, and swirl it on top of the white chocolate. This is simple and the same exact thing we did in sweetheart swirl bark for Valentine’s Day.

Then ADD THE PIZAZZ!

The reason why I love making bark on silicone baking mats is because you can literally peel off the entire candy as a complete whole. Then I like to transfer to a cutting board to chop into squares. Or you can also break off little pieces instead. Any shape or size, this magical lucky charms bark is a pot of gold.

3 Ingredient Lucky Charms Bark

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped1
  • 3/4 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows2
  • pastel rainbow sprinkles
  • optional: 1 drop red or pink food coloring

Directions:

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Using a double boiler or a microwave, melt the white chocolate. If using microwave, stop and stir the chocolate every 20 seconds to help avoid seizing. Set aside.
  3. Pour melted white chocolate on the lined baking sheet and spread out into a large rectangle. **If adding food coloring, make sure you reserve 1/4 of the melted white chocolate for the pink swirls. Stir 1 drop of red or pink food coloring into reserved white chocolate. Drizzle on top of white chocolate in lines. Use a toothpick to swirl.**
  4. Decorate the top of the bark with lucky charms marshmallows and sprinkles.
  5. Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature in a cool dry environment, about 45 minutes. If needed, you can stick it in the refrigerator to help speed things up. Once hardened, break or cut into pieces as large or as small as you want.

Make ahead tip: Store bark in an airtight container at room temperature in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. For longer storage, freeze for up to 2 months and thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes:

  1. Make sure to use high quality chocolate, not white chocolate morsels or almond bark. I suggest high quality chocolate baking bars sold in the baking aisle such as Baker's, Ghirardelli, Nestle, or Lindt. It's the main ingredient and all you'll taste, so quality is key. They are typically sold in 4 ounce bars, so you will need 3 white chocolate bars total.
  2. If you don't feel like picking out just the marshmallows, use the regular cereal too!

  1. Sally did you get a box of that cereal and remove all the lucky charms?!! Ha. Are you even going to eat the rest of the cereal now?! 😉 p.s. very pretty post

  2. SUCH a fun, whimsical candy bark recipe!

  3. I LOVE some white chocolate!  And what a fun recipe for cereal day AND St. Patricks Day coming up.

  4. OH MY GOSH this bark is absolutely adorable! I love the little runaway rainbow that makes an appearance in some of your shots 🙂 I’m sure this would also be a really fun non-green St. Patrick’s Day treat.

  5. This looks so fun, I love how colourful it looks!

  6. You individually placed every one of those marshmallows, didn’t you? HA! I think this will be a perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat too. “Leprechauns” always leave my kids special treats throughout the day. My grocery store just started selling these marshmallows in the bulk aisle and I have been looking for an excuse to make the purchase!

  7. Sally, I LOVE you and have followed your blog for years, but I would like to see more recipes please.   Your Saturday Seven, Coffee Breaks, videos, 3 ingredient “recipes” are nice, however I miss your baking (and savory) recipes, complete with your in-depth baking science expertise!  

    We know you are busy writing a book, so perhaps one of your employees can help maintain quality content while you focus on your book writing?  Thank you and I hope this didn’t offend you, as that was not my intention.

    • Thank you for your feedback! It is VERY much appreciated, Megan.

      One of my 2017 goals was to cut down to 2 recipes per week, typically Mondays and Thursdays, to maintain quality (and my sanity!). And in evaluating the feedback from readers in 2016, sticking to only 1 savory recipe per month so that my blog stays focused on baking. I will take your thoughts into consideration and, of course, am absolutely not offended. 🙂

      • I agree with Dana. Sally you work extremely hard to produce quality content. I love that you provide variety on your blog! It’s much more personal and I enjoy getting to know the person behind the blog. You post a lot of recipes and bravo on doing so while writing a cookbook! Keep doing what you’re doing because it’s awesome! 🙂  And I love your new candy bark recipe!

    • It’s nice to read thoughts from other readers. But I disagree. I’m amazed that you can post new recipes while writing cookbooks. I learned a lot in the new baking challenges and your high hat cupcakes with meringue were a completely new technique for me. I’m loving your new photography style too. Thanks for your hard work and an easy recipe today! 

  8. This bark is just SO Sally! Marshmallows, pink, sprinkles, delicious, pretty – all Sally. I never knew there was a National Cereal Day. How can I work that into a quilting blog?! HAHAHA Thank for sharing this delicious recipe. It can certainly be added to the need-to-make-very-very-soon list.

  9. This bark looks so fun and it’s perfect for upcoming St. Patrick’s Day! I make a batch of bark to supplement whatever BIG dessert(s) I made at most holiday parties. It’s so easy and fun and though people can be picky and particular about what cake and cookies they’ll eat, no one’s going to turn down an over-the-top piece of chocolate. This bark is super colourful and makes me eager for Spring 🙂 (come fast???)

  10. Sally,       Do you have an video(s) showing how you swirl the colored white chocolate into the underlying chocolate. For people like me you have no talent in doing that??? If this isn’t the cutest bark!!

  11. Sally – I bought the marshmallows at a store in Mt. Airy, NC and looked them up. You can buy them online!!! I don’t know if you will love or hate me for that. 🙂

  12. This looks so good!! I can’t wait to try this. And your right Lucky Charms Marshmallows are the beeest!

  13. I got a giant bag of cereal marshmallows for Christmas! Now I know what to do with them besides eat them plain or in hot cocoa!! 

    In case you want a bag of just the marshmallows:

  14. My younger daughter turns 6 at the end of the month. This is a big birthday for her because it’s the first time she’s having a friend party (since it’s the first year she’s in school full-time and has a real group of friends she sees daily). I let my kids pick their birthday “theme.” (My older daughter has chosen My Little Pony, Star Wars, and Kittens themes.) But for this party, as I looked through the options with her, my younger daughter wasn’t really struck by any of the typical themes, though she did keep pointing happily to treats she saw. Therefore, I said, “Uh, do you maybe want to have Candy be your theme?” Because she pretty much has never met a sweet she doesn’t like, she did. So…a candy themed party it is (I’m incorporating it in the decor and games and the goodie bags). While that doesn’t mean I’m going to serve heaps of candy at the party–I don’t want the other parents to hate me, after all! Haha– I’m still going to serve SOME candy at the party, and this Lucky Charms Bark looks like the perfect fit. Fun and bright to look at and super sweet to eat! Yay!

    • A candy theme? This will be your best party yet! 😉 Hope she has a wonderful time and loves this special *magical* bark too!

  15. I love this……what a fun/colorful treat!

  16. This is such a fun idea – I really needed it to brighten up my Monday! x

  17. Hola!! Soy de.Asunción Paraguay soy mamá de 3 varones. Amo hornear !! Me.encantan tus recetas!!
    Feliz aniversario !! Quisiera ganar uno de tus libros !! Besos. LOU.

  18. This is such a fun idea! I’ve been obsessing over rainbow food lately =)

  19. Sally, I hand it to you….I agree with your reader, Dana. I honestly don’t know HOW you do it all! I think the mix of things you are doing right now are more than ample considering you’re writing a cookbook! I look at my life right now….working FT 9 hours (sitting in front of a computer mind you ALL day) and at night? I’m lucky I can see straight (a) and (b) have ZERO energy to bake, etc…..You my friend are baking, testing recipes for your new book, photographing your recipes for the book, drafting a manuscript, traveling for business (and btw you’re VERY skilled at separating the marshmellows from the cereal!), writing ‘several blogs” (and even comment back to us) and then there’s the kids….Jude & Franklin, Kevin and the house! WOW…..can you bake some of your energy into a bottle and sell it? Make sure, no matter what, you stick to your 2017 goals! You are AMAZING.

    • I giggled at “sprinkling some energy into a bottle” haha! Thanks for the kind comment, Sharon 🙂 At least I’m almost finished this book- 1 week to go!

    • Agreed! I don’t know how you do it all. Plus, you do so much for us readers, giving us all wonderful insights and recipes – essentially for free! We cannot thank you enough for everything you do, Sally! You have made all our lives sweeter – literally and figuratively! 😉

  20. This is too adorable Sally! And go you for picking out all the charms! If only Lucky Charms were easily available in the U.K.

  21. These look in-sane! I fell in love with the hard. I can’t wait to make these someday!!!

  22. Holey moley! I’ve never made anything so magical before! I’ve never even seen something so magical! This is such a cute treat! The hardest part would be not eating all the marshmallows before they make it to the bark!

  23. This is so fun, Sally! I’ve never ever ever ever EVER been one of those people who complains about things being “too sweet” 😉 I could totally go for this. Every day 😀

  24. These are so cute! Makes me remember how versatile bark can be! I have been trying to send treats to a few of my (elderly) relatives who live alone and this would be perfect for that. I just want to send little “I’m thinking of you” cards and such. 🙂

    I wasn’t able to do the baking challenge last month but am planning to do the cinnamon roll cookies this month. Can’t wait…meant to do them over the holidays but got lost in the shuffle of my obsession with dipping everything in white chocolate…lol

  25. I love the candy bark idea a/k/a unicorn bark! It’s so pretty and happy! I have a question about coloring chocolate. I see from your photo that you use Americolor. Which one do you use? Doesn’t food color for chocolate have to be oil based rather than water based to prevent the chocolate from seizing? I have also heard about something called Flo Coat from Americolor which turns water into oil and enables water based coloring products to color chocolate. Do you use that? The science behind baking. 🙂

    • I do NOT use that. I never have issues coloring white chocolate because there is a higher concentration of cocoa butter (fat) in it. Extra fat helps prevents the chocolate from seizing when exposed to water. 🙂 Science is delicious!

  26. Does anyone have any idea how many boxes of cereal I’ll need to “separate” to get enough marshmallows? 🙂
