Do you ever have one of those days when you just want to make something for a friend instead of going out and buying an impersonal gift? When I get that feeling, I whip up a batch of this Oreo Cookie Bark recipe – it’s so easy to make and everyone goes nuts for it!
It started about 10 years ago when I was attempting to make peppermint bark outside of the holiday season. Have you ever tried to buy Peppermint Bark in July? It’s virtually impossible!
I began experimenting with different recipes and finally came across an old Peppermint Bark recipe for using Baker’s Chocolate Squares. Once I figured out how to make the Peppermint Bark, I began trying other additions…and thus this Oreo Cookie Bark Recipe was born!
This is always a big hit and I loved making it for my coworkers year after year – as well as for Chris’s coworkers, Angeline’s teachers and even friends and family as gifts!
It is so easy to make that you are going to wish you’d known about this years ago!
Oreo Cookie Bark Recipe
8 squares (1 full package) Baker’s Chocolate Squares
6 squares (1 full package) Baker’s White Chocolate Squares
2 tablespoons peanut butter
10 Oreo Cookies, crumbled
In separate bowls, microwave white chocolate and chocolate for 2 minutes, stirring until completely melted through.
Add 2 tablespoons peanut butter to white chocolate and mix thoroughly.
Add 5 crumbled Oreos into chocolate and 5 Oreos into melted white chocolate and stir until Oreos are completely covered in chocolate.
Lay a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Pour white chocolate mixture onto wax paper and smooth to about 1/4 inch thickness with the back of a spoon.
Pour chocolate on top of white chocolate and smooth over with the back of a spoon, then slide the tip of the spoon around in the chocolate to obtain a marble effect.
Put into the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden and then break into pieces about 2 or 3 inches across – the size really depends on how you are giving it away!
When I send this Oreo Cookie Bark Recipe to Chris’s office or to Angeline’s school, I break it into smaller pieces so that it’s easier for people to share. When I am giving a batch to one person as a gift, I break them into larger pieces because let’s face it – you’re going to eat a lot anyway, right?
Tip: You can substitute crumbled Milano cookies for the Oreos and it’s also quite delicious!
