A fun candy adventure. Vanilla Cherry Bark is an easy treat, filled with great cherry flavor. Makes a great gift idea, simply wrap in plastic and tie with a bow. Hang a sweet tag and give to your loved one.
I love making bark and it’s fun to have around for holiday’s. We’ve made all sorts of flavors and color combinations.
I didn’t make this for a holiday though. I made it because after Valentine’s Day, Target had a huge sale on candy and other supplies.
I got a bag of Cherry Valentine’s Day lollipops for .45 and bags of pink candy melts for 1.00 each. You can’t beat that and we knew what we were doing with it before we even got it home.
This Vanilla Cherry Bark recipe will make a large (jellyroll) pan that can be cut or broken into pieces.
I do have to tell you, that crushing the cherry candy was kinda therapeutic. I should do that more often.
The kids were thrilled to get home and have this as a treat, and with Thursday and Friday being possible snow days (though I have my doubts), I’m sure we’ll be making more candy (not bark) over the coming days.
Did you see the Cactus Fruit Prickly Pear Gum Drops we made yesterday?
Let’s make some Vanilla Cherry Bark!
