Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Pour white chocolate chips in a 2-cup glass measuring cup and microwave 2 to 4 minutes until barely melted, being careful not to overcook (chips may not look melted; stir before microwaving again). Or, melt chocolate on top of a double boiler. Stir to be sure all the chips are completely melted.
  2. On wax paper, pour out chocolate into a 2-inch puddle, spreading to about ¼ inch thickness.
  3. While still hot, sprinkle about 15 Jelly Belly jelly beans on each, and press beans lightly into the chocolate. Allow to cool completely.

MAKES 8 PIECES, ABOUT 16 to 20 SERVINGS.


Variations:

Chocolate & Cherry Bark: Use milk chocolate chips and Very Cherry flavor of Jelly Belly jelly beans.

Peanut Butter Bark: Use peanut butter chips and Grape Jelly, Top Banana or Blueberry flavors of Jelly Belly jelly beans. Or, try a combination of fruit flavors of jelly beans.
