I grew up with The Smurfs. They were my favorite in my Saturday morning cartoons lineup. I even have my OG (original grandchild) toys still at my Grandparent’s house. My Gram has all of my old toys in a playroom that is now enjoyed by her great-grandchildren. We gathered up all of the remaining Smurf Village that’s still hanging in there from decades of play. Waves of nostalgia rush over me whenever I dig out any of my things from childhood. My vintage Smurf toys bring back all kinds of happy memories.
Shelley remembers a whole lot more than I do about Smurf details. It was her idea to create Smurfberry Bark. Candy bark recipes are always fun and easy to make. This sweet candy creation is smurftastic for any Smurf-themed birthday party, boy baby shower, 4th of July (just leave the base white), Smurf movie watching snacks, or just because!
Smurfberry Bark Recipe
We originally used blue Jell-O, but realized it wasn’t necessary. It didn’t give the blue color we were looking for, nor did it add much flavor. The blueberry flavor provides the burst of deliciousness we were after.
What you’ll need:
- ¼ cup Dried cherry cranberries (Smurfberries)
- 9 squares Vanilla Almond Bark
- ½ tsp blueberry flavor
- Blue food coloring
- Melt almond bark in a double boiler.
- Once melted, stir in blueberry flavoring and a 5-6 drops blue food coloring (to get a light blue base color).
- Then put 4-5 drops of blue food coloring in and only mix so there is a swirl of color.
- On a wax-paper lined cookie sheet, pour the melted almond bark and spread evenly, adding blue food coloring as desired to create darker blue swirls.
- Gently press cherry craisins into the bark, evenly distributing them throughout the cookie sheet.
- Freeze until fully hardened and then crack into desired size pieces.
