Oreo bark

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

So, I made what some people would consider to be a "mistake." I told my husband, "Oh, babe, I love you soooo much that I'm' going to make treats for all your co-workers! It's going to be awesome and they're going to love you and love me and it will be fabulous." Then I casually asked how many co-workers he had.

"18."

That is a LOT of baking. And time. And money. So I decided to fill a few large $1 Christmas plates up with mostly no-bake goodies for those fabulous folks at the church. I also decided to be selfish. See, I don't do anything mint-chocolate. Nothing. That's blasphemy, to taint the flavor of my beloved chocolate with anything other than peanut butter.

Who does that? This is a rhetorical question since I realize I am the 1% of the world that hates this combo. Moving on.

This is such a cool recipe, and as someone who is not a fan of white chocolate, I can say this is delicious. So give it a try.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bags white chocolate chips
  • 18 regular Oreos
Directions:
  • Melt the chocolate chips in a double broiler on a very low heat, stirring constantly until completely melted.
  • Pour chocolate into a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes to cool.
  • Crush 15 of the Oreos in a large ziploc bag and add to the chocolate. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • Place a piece of wax paper in a shallow baking pan and pour chocolate/Oreo mixture in it. Using a spoon, spread evenly.
  • Crush the remaining 3 Oreos and sprinkle on top of the mixture.
  • Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until very hard.
  • Lift hardened Oreo mixture by lifting the wax paper out of the pan and placing on the counter.
  • Use a knife (carefully) and break up bark.
  • Remove the actual chunks and dispose of all the crumbs. Yes, you may eat them off the counter. No one is watching.

To answer your question, yes, your counters will be a mess. And it will even get on the floor. But it will be worth it when you see...well, hear about...the looks on your husband's co-workers' faces.

It might not be worth the thirdhand experience for me, but it will be worth it for you.

Love and no-bake,
Rachael
