Sometimes life demands a little sweetness, and Valentine Oreo Cookie Chocolate Bark is exactly what you need to satisfy that craving. Easy to prepare and next to no clean up; treat your Valentine to a homemade goody this year!
I cannot tell you how simple this recipe is to make! I know I say that in many of my posts, and it’s probably the result of me loving being in the kitchen so much. I find cooking and baking to be extremely therapeutic and relaxing. It’s my de-stress technique of choice.
Truth be told, for this recipe to come to life, all you need are the ingredients, a baking sheet, and parchment paper. No microwave or double boilers needed to melt the candy melts – just an oven set at 350 degrees and you’re all set!
So, there’s really no excuse not to present your loved one(s) with a homemade Valentine’s treat, rather than spending a small fortune on store-bought chocolates and confectioneries. We all know, Dear Reader, the Valentine’s Day mark-up for most retailers can be astronomical. Save your hard-earned money and make your own chocolates.
Valentine Oreo Cookie Chocolate Bark
- 2 cups red candy melts
- 1/2 cup white candy melts
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate candy melts
- 10 Oreo cookies roughly broken into pieces
- 3 tablespoons sprinkles I used 1 tablespoon of three different types including red and pink hearts
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Using only the red candy melts, line each melt up, one by one, in a single layer until the entire surface of the baking sheet has been covered.
Randomly place the milk chocolate and white candy melts over the top of the red candy melts.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
Once the oven reaches 350 degrees, remove the baking sheet from the oven and using the back of a metal spoon, smooth out the melted candy melts.
Sprinkle over the broken Oreo, pushing them slightly into the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle over the candy sprinkles.
Transfer to the baking sheet to your refrigerator for 1 hour to set.
Break into bite sized pieces. To store, simply stack in a food safe container and freeze or refrigerate.
This is a thinner bark than you'll usually see. Candy melts are extremely sweet in comparison to melting chocolate, so a thinner bark is a better option, otherwise, the bark will be too rich.
