How to Make Rainbow Bark
Full steps and directions are featured below. This is a quick walk through on how it is made.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and setting it aside.
Next, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl by heating it for 30-second intervals and stirring the chocolate between each session in the microwave.
Once the chocolate is melted, spread it onto the parchment paper, being careful not to spread it too thin to avoid brittle areas.
Sprinkle the Airhead Extreme bites onto the top of the chocolate and scatter the colorful sprinkles over it.
Allow the chocolate to set for approximately 20-30 minutes.
You can then cut the bark into pieces using a sharp knife or break them up with your hands, ensuring that each piece has Airhead bites.

Chocolate: Use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or colored candy melts. Feel free to change up the type of chocolate used. If you are vegan or need dairy free then go right ahead and use the type of chocolate that fits your needs.

Tips for Success
Baking tray: Make sure to use a prepared baking tray. Line with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat to create a non-stick surface.
Use high-quality chocolate: Good quality melting chocolate will have a better flavor and texture, and it will melt more evenly.
Chill the chocolate: Once you have spread the melted chocolate on the parchment paper and added the candies, place it in the fridge or freezer to set quickly. This will also help the toppings stick to the chocolate.
Break the bark into irregular pieces: Don’t worry about making the pieces perfect. The charm of chocolate bark is its rough, rustic appearance, so embrace the natural, jagged shapes that come with breaking it by hand.
Store your chocolate bark at room temperature in an airtight container or sealed bag. You can store the chocolate for up to two weeks give or take.
You can also freeze in a freezer bag or freezer container for up to 3-4 months. Thaw on the counter at room temperature for an hour or so before serving.
