Oreo Peppermint Bark

Oreo Peppermint Bark (2 of 4)w

Hello there Southern Fairytalers! This is Dorothy, from Crazy for Crust. You know, the dessert blog where I’m crazy for crust…and talking. ;) I’m so excited to be here hijacking Rachel’s blog today for the Handmade Holidays: Bake. Craft. Sew! There is nothing I like more than giving handmade gifts for Christmas. It’s so much easier and more personable than something from the store. And well, if you’ve read my blog at all, I bet you know what my handmade gifts are…dessert!

This Oreo Peppermint Bark is the perfect gift to give (or hoard). Everyone loves peppermint bark this time of year – and this has Oreos inside. So, um, it’s like 1,000,000x better than regular peppermint bark. And bark is so easy to make – it literally takes 10 minutes start to finish.

This bark is actually the brainchild of my daughter, Jordan. She’s 8 going on 16. She doesn’t get in the mood to bake with me all that often, so when she comes and says “Mom, I want to make something,” I drop what I’m doing and go running! That’s how this Oreo Peppermint Bark was born – she loves mint. She wanted something she could make that we could “test” and then she could make it again for our annual Christmas Eve party at her aunt’s house.

So yeah, an 8 year old made this. That’s how easy it is! Just two kinds of chocolate chips, Oreos, and candy canes. Easy-peasy!

This bark would be a perfect gift for your kids to make for their teachers. Or you can make it for you. And hide with it in the closet. (Not that I’ve ever done that or anything…)

I hope you enjoy! And come on over and visit me at Crazy for Crust sometime. I’ll ply you with sugar and talk your ear off. That’s a promise! {You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m all of those places obsessively.}

Peppermint Oreo Bark

10 mini candy canes, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
12 Oreos, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 cup milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet)
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  2. Add milk chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Pour onto prepared cookie sheet and spread flat. Sprinkle with chopped Oreos. Chill for 10 minutes.
  3. Add white chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. (I use 50% power for white chocolate because it’s so temperamental!) Pour over Oreos and spread to the edges of the milk chocolate. Sprinkle with chopped candy canes. Chill until set, break into pieces and serve or package to give!
