Bubble Gum Bark

I made this pink Bubble Gum Bark for the Peace, Love, and Chocolate party, but it would be perfect for a little girl’s birthday party, or even a baby shower or bridal shower.

Bark is soooo easy to make, and you can do anything with it.

I use either Wilton melts or a high quality melt like Ghirardelli.  For this Bubble Gum Bark, I used Ghirardelli white chocolate melts and a package of Duncan Hines bubble gum flavoring.





Once the chocolate was spread onto the parchment, I added large edible pink beads on top.

This only tastes like bubblegum, you can’t chew it like bubblegum.  It’s just candy.

Here’s the recipe.  I would recommend using 1/2 package of the bubblegum flavoring and taste it first before adding the remaining flavoring.  It’s a pretty potent bubblegum flavor.  Click on the recipe card to open a new window to print.

What about you?  When was the last time you had something bubble gum flavored?


Love, hugs, and not blowing bubbles with this candy.

    I love bark but I’ve never had the pink version! Must try this! :)

    1. Holly

      Hi Emma – It’s definitely a FUN recipe! Happy Valentines Day! Hugs, Holly

  2. Susan

    How pretty and how fun. I know my kids would love helping me make and eat this bubblegum bark.

    1. Holly

      Hi Susan – Oh they would definitely eat it all up! Stepson loves it.. even though it’s PINK… LOL! Hugs, Holly

  3. Sue

    This wins the most fun I think plus it looks so pretty, Happy Valentines Day and hope your day is filled with sweetness.

    1. Holly

      Hi Sue – Thanks so much, it was a lot of fun to make (and eat… I mean sample too)! Hugs, Holly

  4. Ida

    Love all the pink and they look so yummy!!!

    Stopping by with comment love from the SITS girls!!

    1. Holly

      Hi Ida – Thanks so much for visiting and hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Holly

  5. Corinne

    This is so cute. My daughter (whose favorite color is pink) is going to love this! I haven’t seen the bubble gum flavored frosting creations yet. Heading to the store now to get some!

    1. Holly

      Hi Corinne – It’s the frosting mix-in, so I went out on a limb to try it with the melts and it works just as good. And it really does taste like bubble gum! Hugs, Holly

  6. Elle

    Wow! This is fabulous… love the bright pink and I bet it is delicious!


    1. Holly

      Hi Elle – Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Hugs, Holly

  7. Helen

    Wow! That color is amazing- I can’t believe it came from just that flavor pack. I’ll definitely have to check those out some time.

    1. Holly

      Hi Helen – The color was entirely from the flavor packet. I did not add any food dye at all. Hugs, Holly

  8. Cynthia L

    Big would just love this! Bubble gum is her thing! I think I might be able to make this in a hurry for a sweet dessert on this special Valentines day! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

    1. Holly

      Hi Cynthia – Oh my goodness that is too much. It’s very quick to make and the only “time” involved is for it to set for a spell in the fridge to harden up. Happy Valentines Day! Hugs, Holly

  9. Alexis AKA MOM

    Reminds me of the icecream I use to love as a kid :).

    Stopping by from pin me :)

    1. Holly

      Hi Alexis – It is sooooo sweet! Only for those serious about their sweet desserts. Hugs, Holly

  10. Gina Jacobs Thomas

    I have a pink-loving girl that would absolutely love this recipe! Could you put in something like M&M’s or chocolate chunks before it cools?

    1. Holly

      Hi Gina – Oh goodness, the only limit to what you can put in it is your imagination. My recommendation is to mix the chocolate and flavoring first, spread it out, and put your toppings on top. I tried before to mix them in, but they get lost and you can’t see them on top. Enjoy! Hugs, Holly

  11. Earl-Leigh

    This is so pretty! I love that it’s bubblegum flavor!

    1. Holly

      Hi Earl-Leigh – Thanks so much for visiting! Hugs, Holly

  12. Drea

    It’s been so long since I’ve had bubble-gum flavored anything! And I’ve never had bark. But I love this recipe. I have to bookmark this so me and my daughter can get together and make these. They’re so pretty!

    1. Holly

      Hi Drea – It’s sooooo easy and fun to make. Enjoy! Hugs, Holly

  13. Gracielle

    I love the pink bark! How appropriate for Valentines day or even a baby girl shower. My kids would love the bubble gum, too! Stopping by from #SITSBlogging

    1. Holly

      Hi Gracielle – If you like the bubble gum flavor and want a little sugar high, it’s the perfect treat for any occasion! Hugs, Holly

  14. Jennifer Johnson

    How clever!!! My daughter would love this!!

  15. Run DMT

    1. Holly

  16. Felicia

    This looks like so much fun to make and to eat! I’m a big fan of bubble gum too, so I know it’s something that I would probably love. I can’t wait to try this out!

    1. Holly

      Hi Felicia – I used to love blowing bubbles with bubble gum and you can’t do it with this candy but it’s still a lot of fun. Hugs, Holly

  17. Mommy Mafia

    WOW! The color is just fantastic!! This would be perfect for any little girl wanting a pink princess party! Love it! Pinned!

    1. Holly

      Hi Mommy Mafia – The color is even more amazing in person. I made this for the fundraiser I’m hosting, and the little ladies get their own (much smaller version) princess party to go along with the older ladies. Fun! Hugs, Holly

  18. Emily M. Hammann

    Wow… this looks and sounds like something my kids would go gaga over! It is probably too sweet for my tastes, but the kids would have a blast making this with me for them! Visiting from SITS!

    1. Holly

      Hi Emily – You are correct it is VERY sweet, but the kids will love it! Hugs, Holly

    This looks so yummy! I had no idea there were frosting flavorings like bubblegum. Such a fun party idea!

    1. Holly

      Hi Katie – I know, right? It was a recent find and the feedback was that folks either loved it or not so much (VERY sweet). I was in the love category! Hugs, Holly

    […] totally reminded me of that ice cream.  I’m sure I will love this Bubblegum Bark from Coconut Heads Survival Guide as much as my boys!  I may have to make a blue version for them and a pink just for […]
