Fruit Punch Jelly Bean Bark: easy Easter treat that even the kids can make! Made with Duncan Hines fruit punch Frosting Creations packet! @shugarysweets

I love Duncan Hines products and being a part of their Passionate Bloggers program has been fun so far! I’ve seen people making Jelly Bean Bark using white chocolate and jelly beans (on Pinterest). So I thought I would kick it up a notch by adding in a packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations FRUIT PUNCH flavor mix to my white chocolate.

OMG it turned out so delicious! If ever given the choice in a candy aisle, my kids know I always choose a fruity, chewy treat (Skittles, Mike & Ikes, Starburst, etc). But it’s hard to bake with these kinds of treats. Nobody usually wants to bite into a cupcake and find a gummy bears in the center.

But adding fruity chewy candy with white chocolate? GENIUS. It turns out that it tastes absolutely amazing. And with the swirls of fruit punch flavor with the white chocolate? Seriously, no words. This would be a super easy treat to make for a classroom party or Easter baskets. Kids can totally help on this recipe!

And feel free to call this candy whatever name your family chooses. Some of the names given by my family and friends were “Bunny Chow, Unicorn Poop and Fruity Tootie Bites.” I however stuck with Jelly bean Bark. Honestly I was afraid to go with Unicorn Poop and Bunny chow for fear of getting nasty emails…”not meant for animals, that’s a gross name, disgusting name for disgusting food.” Ahhhh, the emails I receive…

So let’s go with Jelly Bean Bark, cool?
