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 glad to hear it turned out well, Isla!


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


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