About this recipe: A simple, yet delicious treat that's a cinch to make. White chocolate cake covering is melted, spread into a tin and scattered with jelly beans. Break into pieces and enjoy.
Can be purchased online if your local supermarket doesn't stock it. Failing that, you can use white chocolate, but the finish won't be the same.
Melt a little dark chocolate and drizzle all over.
The chocolate referred to in the recipe is the white confectioners' coating. Although they are slightly different, i.e. white chocolate is made with cocoa butter and confectioner's coating is made with vegetable fats. Some people use them interchangeably in certain recipes, especially if it is being used for coating. I think they say the confectioners' coating melts better than the white chocolate itself. Hope this helps! - 21 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fun to make. I also use Starburst jellybeans. Sometimes, I even use a little red food die to make the coating pink and used the Red Fruits Starbursts for a Valentine's Day/Breast Cancer fundraiser, broken into bits and portioned out into see-through gift bags and tied with a pink ribbon. My kids especially love to make this. VERY sweet. - 30 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Instead of pouring the chocolate onto a jelly roll pan, I decided to try something different. I put 4 jelly beans into an egg mold and then spooned the coating around them. What I ended up having was jellybean eggs. I think the kids will love these at our family Easter celebration. - 31 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
