  • 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.
