First unicorn food was all the rage, and then it evolved into another, equally magnificent mythical creature: mermaid food. Mermaid food is just as fanciful—it has the same sprinkles and sparkles—only it’s blue-green instead of pastel-rainbow. This bark is a quick, fun way to jump on the trend. Resist the urge to use white chocolate chips, which are much trickier to melt and are prone to scorching. If you don’t own an offset spatula, you can also use a wide flat metal spatula to spread out the melted chocolate. Use long strokes to distribute the chocolate into a smooth even layer. Finally, don’t be afraid to get creative with your gummy sea creatures; we used gummy sharks, lobsters, and florescent blue and pink minnows.

  • Pour the melted chocolate on a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread ⅛-inch thick.

  • Space eight drops each blue and green food coloring evenly over the chocolate. Swirl drops with a toothpick to marbleize and decorate with gummy candies.
