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.
- 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.
