The smooth texture of candy melts makes this bark a deceptively easy project.


  • 4 cups white candy melts
  • 1/4 cup navy candy melts
  • 1/4 cup light blue candy melts


  • Set an 11 × 17-in. piece of parchment on a baking sheet.
  • Arrange white candy melts, navy candy melts and light blue candy melts in separate bowls. Microwave each 1 to 2 min, stirring halfway, until smooth.
  • Pour white candy onto parchment. Spoon dime- and nickel-sized dots of navy and light blue all over white candy. Drag a skewer through colours to make abstract swirls.
  • Refrigerate until firm, 30 min. Break or cut into pieces.

Kitchen Tip

Candy melts come in an infinite array of bright hues. Go with any colour combination you like and let your inner abstract artist out!
