Jelly Belly Swirl Bark



  1. Pour chocolate chips in a 2 cup glass measuring cup and microwave 2 to 4 minutes until barely melted being careful not to overcook. Or, melt chocolate on top of a double boiler.
  2. Stir to be sure all the chips are completely melted.
  3. On wax paper pour out chocolate into a 2-inch puddle, spreading to about ¼-inch thickness. While still hot, drop a few drops of desired food coloring randomly through pan.
  4. Take a toothpick and stripe white chocolate bark to create whimsical designs. Then sprinkle a handful of Jewel Jelly Belly jelly beans, and press beans lightly into the chocolate.
  5. Allow to cool completely.
