Color Blocked Chocolate Bark with Edible Flower Sprinkles

Color Blocked Chocolate Bark Recipe with Edible Flower Sprinkles

If you’ve been around here long, you know that I love flowers and I love food (specifically of the sugary variety). So, I thought I would combine the two in a colorful DIY recipe that is oh so sweet. You game?

Here’s how to make color blocked chocolate bark with edible flower confetti…

Chocolate Bark with Edible Flower Sprinkles

Supplies and Ingredients:

white chocolate candy melts // gel food coloring // edible flowers (I found mine at Whole Foods) // colorful sprinkles (optional) // wax paper // sheet pan // wooden spoon // flat spatula // wooden skewers

How to Make Color Blocked Chocolate Bark


1. Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the packaging, either on the stovetop or microwave.

2. Separate the melted chocolate into 2 containers and add gel food coloring to each one. I chose violet and pink for my colors.

3. Then, pour the melted chocolate onto a sheet pan that has been covered with wax paper. Keep the half of the pan one color and the other half the second color to get a color blocked look. Smooth with a flat spatula, if needed.

4. Next, remove the petals from your edible flowers. And while the chocolate is still in a liquid state on the pan, sprinkle the flower petals over the top of the chocolate.

5. Add colorful sprinkles as well, if desired.

6. Then wait for the chocolate to harden completely. You can speed this process up by putting the pan into the fridge.

7. Once the chocolate is completely hardened, use the back of a wooden spoon to break the chocolate up into pieces of bark, as shown in the photos.

So-this is spring all wrapped up in what looks like a delicious a block of awesome! I love it. I would have never thought of using flowers to “decorate” a chocolate bar. Sadly, I will probably never get around to making it. It’s going on a “things to try” list anyway.

This looks like fun. A great set of simple instructions that even I can follow. Will melting chocolate in the microwave be ok or does it get too messy? Any advice please… Thanks

How much white chocolate do you use for this recipe? Are you using “almond bark” or “white chocolate”?

Kathy | June 10th, 2015 at 2:52 pm

Hi Kathy. You can use white chocolate chips or Candiquik. Hope that helps.

Did this and loved it!!
I had to melt a bit more chocolate than I thought I would need but this turned out really well. I also just used plain white melting chocolate and it seemed not to make a difference in the final product. A brilliant centre piece.
Will do again!!!

Hi! May I know if you used edible preserved flowers or fresh flowers? If you used fresh, are they going to stay this way?

candy | June 3rd, 2016 at 3:30 am

How far in advance can you make? Do the flowers wilt or brown?


Kat | June 19th, 2016 at 10:35 am

This is really beautiful**as someone who grows edible flowers I use them often in salads & to garnish cakes but I preserve mine so my question is: Are these intended to be eaten the same day because they will lose their color rapidly otherwise ??❤️?

Jody | June 25th, 2016 at 12:42 pm

Hi Candy, Kat and Jody. Yes, its best to eat the bark the same day, if using the edible flowers. It’s so easy to make though, you could make it right before an event and get together without feeling rushed. Hope that helps.

Brittni | June 25th, 2016 at 4:44 pm

I’ve only seen bark done for the holidays using milk or dark chocolate. Its interesting to see this new twist on holiday bark!

Hi Malinda. I used 16 oz of chocolate for what you see in the photos. It just depends on how much bark you’d like to make.
