A great Christmas treat or gift

picture from
Oreo Cookie Bark

  • 1 (20 ounce) package chocolate sandwich cookies with creme filling
  • 2 (18.5 ounce) packages white chocolate

  1. Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with waxed paper. Coat paper with non-stick vegetable spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, break half of the cookies into fourths with fingers or the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. In a microwave safe glass or ceramic mixing bowl, melt one package of the white chocolate according to package directions. Remove from microwave and quickly fold in broken cookie pieces. Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread to cover half the pan.
  4. Repeat process with remaining chocolate and cookies, spreading mixture into the other half of pan. Refrigerate until solid, about 1 hour.
  5. Remove bark from the pan and carefully peel off waxed paper. Place bark on a large cutting board and cut with a large chef's knife. Store in airtight container.
We gave these as gifts last Christmas and though it takes a little practice to make the pieces look more like art than an odd-looking homemade treat, presentation can help a lot. So put them in Christmas cellophane paper and add a nice ribbon for the finishing touch. It should be a given but the taste is wonderful! Mix it up- mint oreos w/milk chocolate, candy cane cookies (do they make those?) in white or milk chocolate...the possibilities are many!

why didn't you take a picture of how ours looked last year? Nobody commented on them so I didn't think it was a keeper, but now that I think should've been a dang good tasty treat.
