Marbled Oreo Bark


Oreo BarkKicking off my holiday baking!  Oreo bark always seems to be a favorite.  I make it marbled with dark chocolate to cut the sweetness of white chocolate.  It’s also one of the easiest things to make for my holiday cookie trays.  No baking, no stove top, easy to make ahead.. so many reasons why it’s good!  My favorite seasonal variation is to use peppermint Oreo cookies (which is what is in the picture).  The only tip I have is: have everything ready, and move fairly quickly to get the marbled effect.  You don’t want one chocolate to harden too much while you are working on the other one.

Ingredients

20 oz Oreo cookies (I often use Trader Joe’s Joe Joes)
16 oz white chocolate
16 oz dark chocolate

Directions

1.  Cut the Oreo cookies into quarters.

2.  Line a large baking tray (I use a half-sheet pan) with wax paper.

3.  Melt the white chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave.  Do this by heating it at 15 second intervals, and stirring in between.  Stop heating it when most (not all) of the chocolate is melted.  Stir it until all of the chocolate is melted.  Then mix in half of the Oreo cookies.

4.  Drop scattered spoonfuls onto the wax paper.

5.  Repeat step 3 with the dark chocolate and remaining Oreo cookies.

6.  Drop the dark chocolate mix in the empty spaces on the wax paper.  It will be lumpy, so place another sheet of wax paper on top and press down lightly with your hands to make it flat and push out the air bubbles.

7.  Place the tray in the fridge to harden.  Once hard, cut into desired size squares.  Store in an airtight container.
