Today’s post is part of a blogger Easter “virtual party”! Check out great Easter recipes from my blogger friends! Links are at the bottom of the post!

A couple of weeks ago I posted my rosemary sea salt chocolate bark, geared more towards adults. Today I want to share a fun chocolate bark activity for kids!

How many of you parents like to cook with your kids? I’m in the kitchen so much, you would think I’d let my kids join in once in a while, right? I’m actually guilty of the opposite. I’m constantly telling my kids to “go play”, “go outside”, “shall we turn on a movie?”(their favorite).

Pour chocolate into cookie cutter shapes and use the cookie cutters as chocolate molds!

The problem is, when kids mix things in a bowl… some of it always ends up on the table, and the floor, and their hair…

I let them help me occasionally, when I’m feeling extra patient. It often turns out well, and is a positive experience for us all. On the flip side, I’ve also found myself snapping and nagging at them, and I’m afraid that I will make the kitchen a negative place for them. How sad would that be?

But THIS cookie cutter chocolates recipe, if you can even call it that, is perfect for kids! It’s such a fun and easy project where you can give your kids lots of creative freedom. Be prepared to do a little sweeping afterwards, but you don’t have to worry about spills “messing up” your final product.

It’s really really simple. Melt the chocolate, pour into the cookie cutters, and top top topping away! Depending on the age of your children, they can even pour the chocolate into the molds!

The two issues I ran into are: 1. I didn’t get the milk chocolate melted enough to pour well, so it was a bit more blobby and I had to spread it out with a spoon. No problem, still turned out fine. 2. If a child bumps the cookie cutter after you put the chocolate in, it will have a little bit that sticks out. You can see that in several of the pictures. Also no big deal.

Really, this recipe is easy and fun, and you can get SO creative with the toppings on the cookie cutter chocolates!

Here are the toppings I chose:

Jelly beans, freeze dried fruit (strawberries, mangoes, bananas), shredded coconut, crumbled bacon, potato chips, granola, chopped almonds, crumbled oreo-type cookies, and candied ginger.

Honestly, my kids would’ve been even happier if I had sprinkles and more candy.

So what are you going to put on yours?
