[Christmas Desserts and Tacky Sweaters : The Recipes] White Chocolate Oreo Peppermint Bark

Thursday, December 3, 2015

It's here! Recipe share day! If I'm being honest, I've been excited about this day since we announced this link up because... well... I love dessert :)

For my recipe, I chose to incorporate Oreos, which shouldn't surprise you if you've been reading my blog or following me on Instagram for any period of time. I pretty much love them. So when I came across a Christmas bark recipe that included Oreos, I was sold.

I altered the recipe a little, but it was basically by accident. However, I do like the additional Christmas-y touch that it gave it.

White Chocolate Oreo Peppermint Bark
(recipe originally from above link)




Ingredients

- 20 ounces white chocolate candiquick or white chocolate morsels 
(I used 2 bags (24 oz total) of Nestle's white chocolate chips)
- 16 Oreos, roughly chopped
(I used red Christmas Oreos)
- 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy canes 
(I used regular peppermints found at the grocery store since they didn't have any candy canes out yet)



Preparation Instructions

1 // Line a 13 x 9 baking tray with parchment paper, making sure that extra paper hangs over the sides for easy lifting once chocolate is hardened. Set aside.

2 // Assemble Oreo cookies and crushed candy canes so that toppings are ready to use.



3 // In a medium bowl, break 8 ounces of white chocolate into pieces and microwave until fully melted and smooth. Be sure to stop and stir every 30 seconds so that chocolate doesn't burn. It probably took me about 1 1/2 minutes to full melt the chocolate, microwaving in 30 second intervals.

4 // Once chocolate in melted, spread onto prepared tray using a spatula or knife. White chocolate should cover entire pan in a thin layer.

5 // Top white chocolate with crushed Oreo cookies.



6 // Place pan in refrigerator for 10 minutes to harden.

7 // As chocolate mixture is hardening, melt remaining 12 ounces of white chocolate in the microwave until smooth.

8 //  Remove pan from refrigerator and spread remaining white chocolate over the top in an even layer, coating the entire pan.

9 // Sprinkle crushed candy canes over top of chocolate.



10 // Place into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to harden completely.

11 // Once ready, lift parchment paper by overhang and set on counter. Chocolate will lift right out of paper.



12 // Break into pieces by hand or using a knife.




13 //  Bark will keep in an air tight container for up to one month if left on the counter, or will keep in the refrigerator for several months.


This bark is seriously SO GOOD. I swear it tastes just like those white chocolate covered Oreos with a hint of peppermint. I can't get enough. I'd love to show you how much we actually have left of this in our fridge but... I'm a little embarrassed to show how much I've eaten :) If you're looking for something quick, easy, and delicious to take to a holiday party, give this a try!
