EASY OREO PEPPERMINT BARK — Oreo cookies are coated in peppermint infused white chocolate, then sprinkled with crushed peppermint candy in this easy variation on peppermint bark.
If you love peppermint, chocolate and Oreo cookies, then you are going to love this Easy Oreo Peppermint Bark!
Peppermint bark is one of my favorite holiday treats, but for some reason, I’m never very successful at making it from scratch. In theory, it should be pretty easy.
But somehow, I never get those pretty layers of dark and white chocolate. I always end up with everything kind of swirled together in one big blob. It still tastes great, but doesn’t exactly look great.
Which is why I came up with this shortcut peppermint bark recipe, using Oreo cookies for the chocolate layer. Just dip them in white chocolate mixed with peppermint extract, sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy, and you’re done!
I just love the festive colors and flavors in this ridiculously easy to make holiday treat!
I really love using the Oreo Thins in this recipe. I prefer the thin, crispy texture. But you can absolutely use regular Oreos, or even Double Stuff Oreos if you like.
And milk, dark, or semi-sweet chocolate is perfectly acceptable too. I just love the pretty layers of white and dark chocolate I get when I make the recipe as stated.
Almond bark or candy melts will work just fine in this recipe. I always use the Ghirardelli melting chocolate (white or semi-sweet) for dipping. I prefer the quality and flavor over bark or candy melts.
Whatever you use, you’ll have these pretty chocolate peppermint treats ready to share with family and friends in practically no time. This is also a great recipe for kids to help with in the kitchen!
Be sure to save this Easy Oreo Peppermint Bark recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
