Easter Marshmallow Bark - A Sweet Treat

This months Center Parcs challenge is all about chocolate and sweets, particularly as it's Easter soon.
I've got my kids to work and together we've made some delicious Marshmallow bark and cut it out using Easter shaped cookie cutters. We had lots of messy fun as you will see.

First up, our recipe:

Ingredients:
200g white chocolate
100g mini marshmallows, preferably in different colours
some sprinkles

Method:
First you need to melt the chocolate. This can be done in the microwave in short bursts, stirring in-between. I don't own a microwave so I did mine in a bowl over a pan of hot water, stirring frequently.

When the chocolate is melted remove from the heat.
prepare a long tin, like a swiss roll tin, by covering it with greaseproof paper.
Add the marshmallows to the chocolate and stir through.
Put the mixture onto the tray and sprinkle over the sprinkles.
Work quickly because you don't want the marshmallows to melt.

Quickly put the tray in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Leave for about 5 minutes after taking out from the freezer then use cutters to cut out shapes. (or you can cut into squares)
marshmallow mess!
