Easter Marshmallow Bark

This recipe has been sitting in my Pinterest archives for a couple of weeks now.  It comes from the blog Butter with a side of Bread.  I however will not be making this recipe this year, since it will only be Hubby and I for Easter. But maybe you will!  A big pan of white chocolate deliciousness is just too much for us.  It looks sooo good though.  If you do happen to make this, please let me know how it tastes!

Photos and recipe come from Butter with a side of Bread

1 bag white chocolate chips (12 oz)
3 cups multi-color miniature marshmallows
about 1 tablespoon shortening (makes melting the chocolate a lot easier)
Easter sprinkles or any fun sprinkles you have for decoration

Measure 3 cups of marshmallows.  Line an 8x11 glass dish or half sized cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place the white chocolate chips and shortening into a medium sized glass bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute. Gently stir the chocolate chips, and return them to the microwave for 30 second increments until the chocolate is fully melted when you stir it. 
After the chocolate has melted, add the marshmallow and stir to coat. You'll want to do this quickly and be sure the chocolate coats all the marshmallows. If you take too long, the marshmallows will begin to melt, which you do not want.
Transfer the chocolate marshmallows to the prepared pan. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread out the mixture to the sides of the pans. Decorate with any sprinkles you'd like and immediately place the pan in the freezer for 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to cool. You'll want to use the freezer because this will prevent the marshmallows from melting. 
Remove from the freezer and allow to return to room temperature. If you want cut out shapes, use metal cookie cutters, or cut them into squares.
