- Makes: Approx. 15-20 servings
- 2 pounds black candy melts
- ½ purple candy melts
- ½ pound dark blue candy melts
- ½ pound light blue candy melts
- 2 teaspoons edible glitter
- 3-4 teaspoons star-shaped sprinkles
- Melt the black candy melts. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat up the black candy melts until they completely melt, stirring with a spoon every 30 seconds.
- Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with foil. Pour the melted black candy melts on the baking pan.
- Melt the rest of the candy melt colors in the microwave. Repeat the same process you did for the black candy melts.
- Dollop the melted candy melt colors onto the black layer.
- Using a knife, gently swirl the colors around to make it look like a galaxy.
- Sprinkle the star-shaped sprinkles all over the bark.
- Allow the galaxy bark to harden for about 1-2 hours.
- Serve. Sprinkle the edible glitter all over the bark. Slice it into pieces using a knife and serve on a serving plate. Enjoy!
- When adding the edible glitter, consider using gold or silver glitter to match with the galaxy theme.
- You can store any leftover galaxy bark in an airtight container. It can last up to a week.
- For a white chocolate taste, use white chocolate melts instead of the colored candy melts, and then add galaxy-themed food dyes after you’ve melted the chocolate.
- When swirling the colors around, take caution to avoid over-mixing, or the result will end up looking grayish and not galaxy-themed.
