You know those crafts that seem perfect to do with children. Then once you’ve laid everything out all neatly, you think – hmm maybe this would be more
fun successful without them.
This is one of those crafts 🙂 Look how neat and tidy this looks – sprinkles, glitter, chocolate, all in a row. Now look what happens when you add a small child.
Wahhhh! That edible glitter is expensive stuff.
When she dumped a whole jar of sprinkles and three, yes three pots of edible glitter, I honestly thought Dorothy had ruined the Bonfire Bark. I’d planned a subtly sparkling, marbled bark with little orange flavoured twigs. What we ended up with was a mass of chocolate and sprinkles with more glitter than a burlesque dancer’s make-up bag. And it looks awesome!!

You Will Need
Milk chocolate (not cooking chocolate)
Matchmakers or similar stick shaped chocolate
Non-stick baking sheet.
- It’s up to you how large a slab of bonfire bark you make, but you’ll need to have around three times as much milk chocolate as white.
- Melt your chocolate in batches and drizzle into a loose rectangle, changing direction often.
- In between each batch, add a few chocolate sticks, some popping candy, sprinkles and glitter.
- Finish with a
tonnefinal flurry of glitter.
- Allow to cool and set for several hours before breaking into generous piece
Share with friends and family, if you can bring yourself to part with it!
