My grandfather’s birthday always falls quite close to Father’s Day, so my grandma usually holds a dual celebration to commemorate both events. The one thing that stuck in my head every time we would visit my grandparents, is how much my grandpap really adored Oreo cookies. There was always a cookie jar filled to the brim in their kitchen, and it never held anything other than Oreos. As a result, for the last handful of years, I’ve tried to concoct different desserts using Oreo cookies for our June celebrations.
I’m a huge fan of chocolate bark and all of its variations (although I suspect my favorite will always be peppermint bark – it’s just not Christmas without it!), as much for the flavor as for the simplicity of the preparation. It doesn’t get much easier than melt chocolate, spread on baking sheet, sprinkle with delicious add-ins. That’s it!
For this Oreo chocolate bark, I used white chocolate, as I think it’s a good pair for those iconic chocolate sandwich cookies, but if you prefer a different type of chocolate, by all means, go for it!
If you love Oreos, or know someone who does, this 10-minute recipes is well worth the minimal effort! A tin filled with this bark would make a fabulous homemade Father’s Day present, or a great “just because” gift on any old day of the week.
