Oreo Bark is a quick and easy dessert made with only 4 simple ingredients. It’s no bake and a fantastic last minute treat for Christmas parties and gifts!
Oreos are my downfall – and I mean that in the most affectionate way. If there’s dessert, I can find a way to put an Oreo spin on it. S’Moreos anyone?
Peppermint and chocolate are classic flavors at Christmas time, so it’s no surprise how popular peppermint bark is. How about if we add some Oreo cookies to the mix?
For this Oreo Bark, swirls of marbled chocolate, crunchy cookies, and bits of cool peppermint come together for an easy holiday treat. Put some on a cookie tray next to these Oreo Truffles and let all the Oreo lovers rejoice!
Oreo Bark Recipe
Chocolate bark couldn’t be easier to make and you can break up the pieces as big or as little as you want. For this chocolate bark recipe, all you need are 4 ingredients:
- Vanilla candy melts
- Chocolate candy melts
- Oreo cookies
- Peppermint candies
How to Make Chocolate Bark
It couldn’t be easier to make bark! (Scroll down for the detailed printable recipe card.)
- Melt white candy melts according to package directions until smooth and completely melted. In a separate bowl, repeat the process with the chocolate candy melts.
- Stir crushed Oreos into the white chocolate until combined.
- Spread mixture onto a lined baking sheet in an even layer, about 1/4-inch thick. Top with some crushed Oreos and crushed peppermint candies, then drizzle with melted brown chocolate.
- Chill in the refrigerator to harden, then break into pieces and enjoy!
Candy Melts vs White Chocolate Chips: I prefer Wilton candy melts or Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers for making this chocolate bark. I love regular white chocolate chips, but they are manufactured with additives to hold their shape, so they don’t melt as easily and also once hardened, the bark can soften up at room temperature.
Variations: add in some crushed up pretzels or top with sprinkles. You can use different Oreo flavors, like golden or peppermint. Or even try a different type of cookie.
Breaking it up in to pieces: I simply break the bark up with my hands because I like the rustic look of uneven pieces, but you can also cut the bark into perfect squares with straight edges, if you prefer. To do this, place the blade of a sharp knife in hot water for 30 seconds, then dry the blade and place it against the bark to score the sections. Let the heat of the blade melt a line into the bark, then cut.
How to Store Oreo Bark
Store pieces in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week, in the refrigerator for 2 weeks, or in the freezer for about 1 month.
Chocolate bark is not only delicious, but it’s so easy to make and can be a wonderful edible gift for family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and teachers. It’s so pretty stacked between pieces of parchment paper and tied with a festive bow.
