This is a fun and quick recipe I made for our neighbor kids last week. After seeing it on Kristan's blog, and knowing I had a block of candy melt in my pantry, I set out to make it right away. I used Kristan's concept, but decided to leave out the cherry flavoring, since I don't like cherry candy, and I didn't have cherry candy flavoring anyway. So, I just used the dark chocolate M&M's in Valentine's Day colors.
The blocks of candy melts actually come with a microwave safe container to melt your chocolate in. So, this was super easy to clean up. Just melt in the microwave, pour into the lined pan, then toss the disposable container. Easy peasy!
- 1 package chocolate candy coating/melts
- 1 package white candy coating/melts
- pink food coloring (that does not contain water)
- 1 package M&M's
- Assorted heart sprinkles
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate candy melts in the microwave according to the package directions. Pour onto the lined baking sheet and evenly spread into a very thin layer with a spatula. Chill in the fridge until hardened.
- Melt the white candy coating in the microwave according to the package directions, then use the pink food coloring to tint it the desired color. Evenly spread on top of the layer of chocolate and sprinkle the M&M's and heart sprinkles on top. Press lightly to adhere. Chill in the fridge until set, then remove from the parchment paper and break into pieces.
