HOW TO MAKE THIS OREO PEPPERMINT BARK RECIPE

STEP ONE: Melt chocolate in the microwave or double boiler. If using the double boiler, keep it on low heat. It should take about 8 minutes to melt.

PRO TIP:

If you are using the microwave, be sure to do it in short bursts so you can check on the chocolate. You don’t want to burn it!

STEP TWO: Place a silicone baking mat or wax paper over a cookie sheet and pour the melted chocolate onto the sheet.

STEP THREE: Using a rubber spatula, spread the chocolate evenly across the cookie sheet to form a 9×12-inch rectangle that is ¼-inch thick.

PRO TIP:

Use a cookie sheet instead of a pan so you can adjust the thickness of your bark depending on your preference.

STEP FOUR: Sprinkle crushed peppermint and Oreos on the chocolate. Depending on how full you like your bark, you may have extra crushed Oreos and peppermint. 

PRO TIP:

You can crush the Oreos either in a food processor or in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin. Crush your candy canes into peppermint bits in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin.

STEP FIVE: Take a piece of wax paper and gently press the sprinkled candy cane pieces and Oreos into the chocolate.

PRO TIP:

Save any extras of the candy canes and crushed Oreos in a sealed bag and use them at a later time to make another bark.

STEP SIX: Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes or until set.

STEP SEVEN: Break the chocolate into pieces.

HOW TO SERVE

Once the chocolate bark is in smaller pieces, you can serve it in bowls at holiday gatherings along with our original peppermint bark. It would also be a great addition to little gift buckets filled with various candies, cookies, and treats for a cookie exchange or holiday gifts. 

STORAGE

ON THE COUNTER/IN THE FRIDGE: Store this easy treat either at room temperature or in the fridge in an airtight container.

IN THE FREEZER: You can also freeze this easy holiday treat in a sealed container for up to three months.

With just three simple ingredients, this peppermint Oreo bark is so pretty with the beautiful, bright red peppermints against the black and white Oreos and white chocolate. It’s perfect for entertaining or even as the perfect DIY holiday gift for Christmas. You can make it in batches for gifting to teachers or sharing at parties and potlucks.
