If you are looking for a quick and easy holiday treat to give as a gift to friends and neighbors, add to a cookie plate or just enjoy as a treat, cookies and cream bark is the answer. It really couldn’t get any easier!
This cookie bark has all the flavors of your favorite chocolate sandwich cookie and it has cookies too!
How to Make Cookies and Cream Bark
- Use a combination of white almond bark (or vanilla melts) and semi sweet chocolate melts. You could also use milk chocolate melts. You can also use chocolate chips if you prefer but I find that the chocolate melts, melt more evenly and easily. Use a 1:1 ratio of white chocolate to semi sweet or milk chocolate. Melt in the microwave.
How to Melt Chocolate in the Microwave
Melt 2 cups of each chocolate separately in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. Cook on high for 20-30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until chips are completely melted. You could also use a double boiler on the stove top for a slower, safer melt.
- 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.
- Spoon chocolate onto a parchment lined baking sheet, alternating the white with the semi sweet.
- Using a knife, cut through the chocolate to swirl it together to create a marbled effect.
- Immediately sprinkle the remaining crushed Oreo on top! Use your fingers to lightly push the cookie pieces into the bark.
- Refrigerate for 10 minutes after adding the toppings to set the chocolate.
- Refrain from touching or handling the bark until it is fully hardened. You will leave fingerprints on the chocolate if you touch it before it is hardened.
How to Store Cookie Bark
After cookie bark hardens, break into pieces and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. It will keep for several weeks and does not need to be refrigerated. If you do refrigerate it make sure it is in an airtight container so no moisture can get it which can ruin the chocolate.
