When I get asked to create a recipe, I generally come up with something fairly quickly. It may take a couple attempts to get it right, but I usually have a pretty good idea of which direction I want to go. When I got asked to create a recipe with jelly beans, I was stumped at first. Some candy is easy to incorporate into recipes. Jelly beans? Not so much. First, I made Chocolate Pretzel Jelly Bean Bites. They were good alright, but after staring at the six leftover bags of jelly beans on my kitchen table, I wanted to try something new. I present to you…
White Chocolate Raspberry Jelly Bean Bark. This is for the ultimate dessert lover. Someone who has a crazy, raging sweet tooth. It’s super sweet, super delicious, super colorful, and a good way to use up jelly beans if you so happen to have some.

You could definitely use any flavor drink mix to swirl into the white chocolate. For me, I love white chocolate and raspberry together, so it was a no brainer; and the fruit flavored jelly beans add a delicious chewy component to the sweetness.
Do you have an easy or hard time coming up with new recipes? Other ideas for ways to use jelly beans?
