Cookies & Cream (Oreo) Bark

I had these grand plans of doing an entire week of holiday bark recipes for Christmas, kind of like how I did a week of Korean banchan earlier this year. Well...it didn't happen. Time seems to have FLOWN by this month, and I've been insanely busy and stretched thin. 

So, I'll post just a few bark recipes, since Christmas will be here before we know it, which means holiday parties, office parties, and suddenly being accosted with unexpected gifts. NOTHING feels worse than receiving an unexpected gift and having nothing to give in return! Luckily, people still love and appreciate homemade gifts, ESPECIALLY a gift of sweets. I like to make an array of sweets, and have them boxed up in little tins or colorful Chinese-takeout-style containers so I never am caught without a gift. 


The rest of the bark recipes? I'll eventually post those, too - don't worry! 

In years past I've made fudge. Or balls. Or an assortment of cookiestrufflescheesecake bars, and PLENTY of my chocolate pretzel turtles & Saltine toffee!

This year though? I'm doing bark. Today's recipe is a SUPER easy one - it requires only TWO ingredients - white chocolate & Oreo cookies. I think this is probably the one bark that I make that EVERYONE seems to love, considering I don't know a single person who doesn't like cookies & cream! 


Cookies & Cream Bark/Oreo Bark
adapted from Baker's Royale

Ingredients:
10oz white chocolate chips
18 Oreo cookies

Melt the white chocolate chips (microwave or double boiler - your choice). Transfer to a bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. 






Chop 15 of the Oreo cookies and add to the melted chocolate; stir well to combine. Transfer to an 8x8" pan, lined with parchment paper. 








Smooth out the top, then finely chop/crush the remaining 3 Oreo cookies and sprinkle on top. Chill for 10 minutes or until solid, then lift the bark from the pan and chop into shards.
