Double Peppermint Oreo Bark

What do you do with Chocolate, Oreos and Candy ?  Well, you make some Bark ! I have made 2 batches of this double Chocolate Oreo Bark already and both times, they were gone in a flash.

Bark is one of my favorite sweet treats as I can control what goes into it and what not. Of course there are like a zillion different kinds of Chocolates with various ingredients and combinations, but I think when we crave a certain flavor {or texture} it is best to make it yourself.

Making Bark is also so convenient and versatile because there are no strict rules or any kind of rule really.

Add as much or as little of an ingredient as you like, or leave out something you do not specifically like and trade it for something else you'd rather have.

I wanted mine very Pepperminty, hence the added Peppermint Crunch which also adds color to the Bark and at Christmas time everything is really about color and fun, of which the primary colors are red and green.

In the above photo you can see I have packed a largish chunk of the Double Peppermint Oreo Bark in a plastic gift bag. I think this is the perfect gift for neighbors or colleagues at work. Quick, simple to make but a bit more personal than a store bought slab of chocolate.

One thing I need to mention {if you are new to making Bark} - use enough melted Chocolate to help set all the toppings - don't skimp on that.

DOUBLE PEPPERMINT OREO BARK

INGREDIENTS:

200g Dark or Milk Chocolate, melted
8 Oreos, chopped roughly
100g White Chocolate, melted
1/3 cup Candy Cane, crushed
2 - 3 TB Peppermint Crunch

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Place a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet.
2.) Pour the Dark or Milk Chocolate in the center of the wax paper - using a tablespoon, spread the Chocolate out to your desired thickness {mine was about 20 x 30 centimeters}.
3.) Sprinkle immediately with the Oreos - use the back of the spoon to lightly press down the Oreo pieces.
4.) Pour the White Chocolate over the Oreos {try to reach all the areas where the Oreos might not have adhered to the bottom layer of Chocolate}.
5.) Lastly sprinkle over the Candy Cane and the Peppermint Crunch - pressing down with the spoon again {gently!} - chill for 20 - 30 minutes or until hardened.

Remove the wax paper, break into pieces and enjoy !
