Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark

Reindeer Corn Bark

Remember that yummy, fun Candy Corn Cookie Bark I made at Halloween???  Well if you don’t, you will want to remember it next Halloween because it is so good!

It was so good I decided we needed a Christmas version – thus was born Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark.  Who knew there was Reindeer Corn?  I didn’t until I was perusing the bulk food bins at the grocery store the other day and there it was!  Red, green and white candy corn!  Love it!!

I picked up a bag of holiday Oreos with red filling, some pretzels, almond bark  and red and green sprinkles and I was good to go!

The process is still the same.  Crush and chop up the oreos and pretzels and spread them along with 3/4 of the reindeer corn on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Melt the 1 pound package of white almond bark in the microwave and pour over the top of the broken up goodness.

I then push the sides of everything in to make it a little more compact.

Sprinkle the remaining reindeer corn and red and green sprinkles on top before the almond bark sets up too much.

Let it harden up at room temperature or if you are in a hurry like I usually am pop it in the refrigerator for a bit.

After it hardens break it into pieces and enjoy!  I found this cute little holiday polka dot bowl at Home Goods which makes the perfect container.

Isn’t it pretty enough to eat!

I bet Rudolph would love a bowl of Reindeer Corn Bark left out for him on Christmas Eve along with Santa’s cookies – much better than a carrot!

Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark

Ingredients

  • 14 whole Oreos, broken up. I used the holiday ones with the red filling but regular will work fine
  • 1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
  • 1 lb. white chocolate, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
  • 1 C reindeer corn
  • red and green colored sprinkles

Instructions

  • Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper
  • Spread broken cookes, pretzels and about 3/4 C of the candy corn onto the waxed paper
  • Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes
  • Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth
  • White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly
  • Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet
  • Do not let it harden
  • Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm
  • Remove and gently break bark into small pieces
  • Store in air tight container

      Melanie, I had originally bought red and gree M & M’s to use but then I found the Reindeer Corn in the bulk food section of Winco and had t use it but M & M’s would be great!!

    Oh no… I’m still trying to lose the extra weight I gained from the Halloween Candy Corn Cookie Bark! I have not seen the red/green/white candy corn around here, but I like the idea about substituting with the red and green M&M’s! This will be a great treat to make and give out to friends this year!

    P.S. Love the bowl too! Very cute!

    Love this! I made a version of this for my little girl’s birthday party a few weeks ago. Her party decorations were bright colors – orange, blue, sunshine yellow. So I made the bark from orange chocolates and used brightly colored sprinkle flowers. I didn’t want to add the candy corn because I thought it made it too Halloween-ish for a birthday party, so I substituted small marshmallows and peanuts. My guests loved it!

    yummy! It’s addicting though. Leigh Anne, I just discovered Home Goods two weeks ago. I was in the store for over an hour!

    Well, I am supposed to be “unpacking” (when my husband left for work he commenedt, “Don’t spend too much time on the computer”), but I am drooling over this yummy recipe. I will have to stop and gn get the ingredients this afternoon. THANKS!

  5. Stephanie says

    The kids and I just finished making this. It’s in the refrigerator hardening up. Doesn’t look nearly as neat as yours, but I am sure it will taste fine. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I’ve enjoyed all you candy bark ideas! I first tried your Candy Corn Cookie Bark at Halloween. I made it multiple times and everyone I shared it with loved it. I came up with my own variation for Christmas Bark a couple weeks ago. I used Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s (Trader Joe’s version of oreo cookies), pretzel sticks, and crushed peppermint candies, with white chocolate and toped with holiday red/green sprinkles. Thanks for the new suggestions…possibilities for candy bark are really endless.

    Leigh Ann –

    Thank you for another great recipe!! You are my place to check for fun, easy and GREAT recipes! I didn’t want to make a separate stop to get the Christmas candy corn. So I used holiday M&M’s instead. YUMMY! So good in fact, my daughter wants to make some to give her Kindergarten class for Christmas. And both my girls, ages 2 and 5, loved to help make this. I love recipes where I can use their help. Thanks!!

  8. says

    The Halloween Bark was such a hit with my family and friends that I just purchased all the stuff to make more for Christmas. However, I am having a super hard time finding any of the Reindeer corn. I’m happy to read that I can substitute M&M’s instead if I can’t find the corn. I’m just not sure it will be as yummy!! :)

  9. Cristina says

    I just made this with the help of my 3 year old, it was a great project to have him help with! Mine didn’t turn out as pretty as yours, though. I used the candy cane oreos that are out now, and they kinda turned the white chocolate to pink chocolate…I’m sure it’ll still taste good and my neighbors will accept it! :)

  10. Ellen says

    I have all the other ingredients, and have been looking all over for the Chirstmas candy corn…no luck. I knew I could find inspiration if I read the comments! I’ll use M&M’s instead. Hope we still have some Oreos left :)

  11. Cristine says

    I tried to make this with my kids, but when we spatuled everything together, the red oreo’s bleed all over, what is your secret to keeping the almond bark white, and not red?

    Thanks!

  12. Susan says

    I found the Reindeer Candy Corn, in the Seattle area, at Fred Meyer, called Holiday Corn by Zachary in the seasonal candy section. Could not find the Reindeer Candy Corn at the closest Winco to me. I am going to make this week-end it looks delicious.

  13. says

    thanks for these corn bark recipes!! :) i made the candy corn version last weekend for a little church party. very fun and tasty! i thought i’d mention that i added salted peanuts to mine and loved it. we needed a little more salty (besides just the pretzels) to balance out the sweet. maybe i used less pretzels than you did? anyway – peanuts are a great addition! thanks again :)

  14. Joy says

    How long does it take to harden? I want to make these with my girl scout troop and we would have an hour before we would need to serve.

      Depends on how cool your house is – if you are in a hurry you can put it in the refrigerator to firm up faster or I have even put it out in a cold garage or even outside!

  1. […] I am a big bark fan.  One of the reasons I like bark so much is that it is easy candy to make – no candy thermometer required.  It goes together quickly and you can get creative with what you put it in.  One of my favorites is one I shared last Christmas – Reindeer Bark. […]
