Today is January 14th...which means that Valentine's Day is exactly a month away! SQUEE! Even though I am in the middle of a not-so-pleasant divorce, I am still a hopeless romantic at heart and while I may be alone right now, I am still looking forward to Valentine's Day. Yeah, I'm a sucker for romance and all of that sweet stuff! My friend Cat shared this awesome Valentine's Day Oreo Cookie Bark Recipe with me last week and I am so excited to share it with you guys!
I'm hoping to make her a regular foodie contributor on the blog because this chick KNOWS her stuff when it comes to sweet treats!
I love all things chocolate (if you're a Pinterest follower of mine, you already knew that!), so this is not my first foray into sharing cookie or candy bark recipes with you guys. Remember this yummy Valentine's Day Chocolate Bark I did a year or so ago? But of course there's always room on the blog for more bark recipes - especially when Valentine's Day rolls around and we are all scrambling to find the perfect treat to share with our kids and friends!
Valentine's Day Oreo Cookie Bark Recipe
- 12 OREO cookies
- 24 oz almond bark cut into chunks
- ⅓ cup Wilton red candy melts
- ⅓ cup Wilton bright pink candy melts
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
- ¼ cup Valentine's Day M&M candies
Twist the OREO cookies in half and arrange in a rectangle 6 cookies long by 4 cookies wide on a Silpat or wax paper lined baking sheet.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt almond bark for one minute, stir. Melt for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until fully melted.
In one small bowl add the red candy melts and half the oil. In another small bowl add the pink candy melts and the remaining oil.
Microwave both bowls of candy melts for 30 seconds, stir both with different spoons and continue to heat and stir every 30 seconds until fully melted.
Starting in the center, slowly pour the melted almond bark over the cookies, covering all of them completely, careful not to pour the candy off the edge of the Silpat or wax paper.
Use a spoon to randomly drizzle the red and pink melted candy over the white candy.
Drop the M&M candies randomly over the melted candy.
Cool in the refrigerator for one hour.
Use a knife to cut the candy into random shapes and triangles.
