Fabulously Delicious: Frosted Circus Animal Bark

Over the weekend I helped plan a flamingo-themed birthday party and we were in dire need of a pink dessert, so I found this awesome recipe by Sugar & Cloth: Frosted Circus Animal Bark

I mean, this is just the cutest dessert I've probably ever seen!! Also, it's VERY easy to make!!  This recipe would be fun to make with the kids, or for a girl's night over some wine or just by yourself while you binge on your favorite show!  I think the only problem you'll run into is trying not to eat all the cookies while placing them on the chocolate! Ugh, my weakness!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds white melting chocolate (White chocolate chips work just as well too!)
  • Nonpareils sprinkles
  • Pink gel food coloring (Yes, this exists)
  • 1 package Frosted Circus Animal Cookies (One is enough...I bought three bags and REALLY didn't need them!)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.  I recommend a large baking sheet because you'll have more room to spread the chocolate.  Also, foil works fine if you don't have parchment paper.
  2. Melt chocolate in microwave at 30 second intervals at 50% power until completely melted.
  3. Divide chocolate into thirds. Use the food coloring to tint one portion dark pink, and one portion light pink. Leave the final portion white.
  4. Spoon large dollops of chocolate randomly across pan.
  5. Using a knife, make circular motions all over the pan to combine chocolates together.
  6. Sprinkle on nonpareils and animal cookies.
  7. Place in the fridge until firm, and then break into pieces and serve.
