  • Pour the melted candy into your 9 x 13 in. cookie pan.
    If needed, use a spatula to smooth out the melted candy.

Step 2: Top the Bark

  • Top the melted candy with pretzel twists, freeze-dried strawberries and granola. For a little color and texture, sprinkle on some nonpareils, confetti and heart sprinkles.
  • Place your bark in the fridge to harden, about 10 minutes.
  • Prepare a decorating bag with 1 oz. (about 2 tablespoons) Bright White candy. Melt the candy in the microwave following the instructions on the packaging.
  • Cut a tiny tip off the end of the bag and drizzle the melted candy over your bark. Place it back in the fridge to set, about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Cut and Serve

  • Once everything has set, remove the bark from the pan. Cut it into pieces and enjoy!
