Peppermint Oreo Bark

This recipe makes almost 2 pounds of candy.
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time17 mins
Servings: 40 pices

Ingredients

  • 16 oreo cookies any kind
  • 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips use a high quality chip for best results
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy cane pices for the bark
  • 3/4 cup crushed candy cane pices for the topping

Instructions

  • Line a pan about half the size of a standard cookie sheet with foil.
  • Place the Oreos in a one gallon sized Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and use a rolling pin to whack the cookies until each cookie is in about 5-6 pieces. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate in double boiler, stirring occasionally. Remember that it has to be perfectly dry - a tiny bit of water can cause the chocolate to become grainy and yucky.
  • When chocolate is melted add 1/2 cup of crushed candy cane pieces and the smashed Oreos. Stir until fully mixed.
  • Spread the chocolate mixture out on the foil lined pan until it is evenly distributed.
  • Scatter about 3/4 cup additional crushed candy cane on top of the bark. Press it gently to the melted chocolate to make it adhere.
  • Place bark in the refrigerator to allow it to set fully, about 1-3 hours.
  • Use the edges of the foil to lift the bark out of the pan. Peel off the foil and put the bark on a wooden cutting board. Break into pieces with the tip of a sharp knife.
  • Store bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
