Jelly Bean Bark

Mix It Up with Jenny - Sweet Simplicity

As much fun as it is to make fancy treats, sometimes simple really is better. This Easter I've decided to keep things sweet and simple when it comes to making desserts.

Bark candies are traditional around other holidays, so why not Easter, too? They couldn't be simpler to make, and the creamy white morsels and colorful jelly beans taste - and look - great together.

For more sweet simplicity, check these Easter Egg Treats are a fun twist on marshmallow crispy bars - the kids can help shape the eggs and sprinkle them with pretty toppings. It will be a little messy, but what a fun memory to make together!
