Recipe Tips & Notes

Before ending this post, I have to point you in the direction of my inspiration to this bark. My friend Christi (the one who wrote Smart Cookie) over at Love from the Oven made THE MOST incredible swirled chocolate bark I have ever seen for a birthday cake topping (the birthday cake itself is stunning too)! She has put together a fabulous step-by-step photo guide which I used to make this rainbow bark. So be sure to swing by her post for the full set of how-to on making this bark, and check out her truly amazing birthday cake-making skills. It’s seriously jaw-dropping.

Golden Oreo Rainbow Bark

Rainbow colored bark with gold coin sprinkles.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup red Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup orange Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup yellow Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup green Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup blue Wilton melting candy
  • 1/4 cup purple Wilton melting candy
  • Wilton gold sprinkles

 

Directions:

Place each color of melting candies in a separate piping (or gallon-sized ziptop bag).

Line a 10x13 jellyroll pan with tin foil. Melt the white candy melts according to the directions on the package. Spread the melted candy in the pan. You can keep it from hardening while you're working with the other colors by placing it in a warm oven (100º or less) when you're not using it.

Start melting the colored candy: place one bag at a time in the microwave for one minute. Remove and "smush" the candy in the bag until melted and smooth. You may need to heat for an additional 30 seconds to melt completely.

Snip the corner of the bag off and pipe large dollops of the melted candy randomly on the melted white candy in the pan (remember to check out Christi's guide if you need a visual).

Repeat with the remaining colored candy.

Lightly tap the baking sheet on the counter to spread the dollops of melted candy and smooth things out a bit. Use a chopstick or the blunt end of a toothpick to swirl the candy until you like the appearance.

Add the gold sprinkles.

Allow candy to cool completely until hardened, before breaking into pieces for serving or packaging.
