Cookies and Cream Candy Bark

On my second trip to Home Goods this week I found these…

…darling brown and white mugs. (Yes, I think I need some type of intervention!)

What do my new mugs make you think of?

To me they just screamed Cookies and Cream!

So they became the inspiration for today’s candy bark recipe – Cookies and Cream Candy Bark!

I used a combination of white almond bark (or vanilla melts) and semi sweet chocolate melts.  You could also use milk chocolate.

I used 2 cups of each and melted them separately in the microwave.  Crush 12 – 14 Oreos in the food processor and reserve about 1/4 C to sprinkle on top.  Add the rest of the crushed Oreo cookies to the chocolate dividing evenly between the semi sweet and the white.

For a little extra flavor you can add 2 Tbsp of peanut butter into one of the chocolates, mix well.

On a wax paper covered cookie sheet spoon each of the chocolates into little mounds.

Then use a knife to swirl the two chocolates together to create a marbled effect.  Sprinkle the remaining crushed Oreo on top!

Allow to harden and then break into pieces and put into a cute container like my new mugs!  If you are not going to consume it all in one sitting be sure and store in an airtight container.

Doesn’t it look just darling!?  Good enough to eat!  How am I ever going to give this stuff away!?

I think this yummy cookies and cream goodness would be a perfect trio with the Lemon Bark and the Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark.

    Good morning. I am just wondering where you get vanilla almond bark? I went to the baking aisle of my local grocery store after reading the recipe for the lemon bark yesterday and had no luck. Thank you for all the fun holiday recipes.

      My grocery store has it in the baking aisle – it is just the white one. It usually comes in vanilla and chocolate. Most grocery stores have it, especially this time of year. You could also try your local craft store or cake decorating store and buy the Wilton Melts. They work great too.

    Oh my!! I am going to use this one for sure this year….my boys are Oreo lovers. And this looks so pretty, too!! You’ve outdone yourself once again! Kuddos to you!

    You are a woman after my own heart…I love Homegoods (it’s probably a good thing that the closest one is over an hour away), pretty placesettings (which means lots of dishes), parties (more dishes) and cooking. You, however, seem much better than I at implementing ideas. Were you able to do as much when your kiddos were younger?

    Pretty and yummy… thanks for the inspiration for a fun new treat to make with the kiddos next week! They are not going to believe their eyes… chocolate, more chocolate and Oreos!

    Just thought I’d let you know that I made the bark. This recipe is a real keeper! Everyone who tasted it LOVED it and can’t wait to make it themselves. I did substitute milk chocolate for the semi sweet chocolate melts and it wasn’t an overkill in sweetness, probably because of the peanut butter! PERFECT! This recipe is going to be a new holiday tradition… although we may not be able to wait that long to make it again! Leigh I linked folks back to you for the recipe on my blog!
