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.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups red candy melts
  2. 1/2 cup white candy melts
  3. 1/2 cup milk chocolate candy melts
  4. 10 Oreo cookies, roughly broken into pieces
  5. 3 tablespoons sprinkles (I used 1 tablespoon of three different types including red and pink hearts)
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. 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.
  3. Randomly place the milk chocolate and white candy melts over the top of the red candy melts.
  4. Place the baking sheet in the oven and turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
  5. 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.
  6. Sprinkle over the broken Oreo, pushing them slightly into the melted chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle over the candy sprinkles.
  8. Transfer to the baking sheet to your refrigerator for 1 hour to set.
  9. Break into bite sized pieces. To store, simply stack in a food safe container and freeze or refrigerate.
Notes
  1. 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.

  1. I make a ton of barks around Christmas because they are easy to prepare and super tasty. This Valentine’s Day themed bark looks like it is chock full of yummy stuff!

  2. What would Valentine’s Day be without a sweet treat?! I agree that store-bought ones are just ridiculously expensive, l was looking for some posh(er) chocolates the other day and one tiny little box with only 4 chocolates was Β£5. What a rip off! So, yes, home-made all the way!
    We are not too familiar with chocolate bark in the UK, at least not as l’m aware of, but your recipe looks like a dream, especially with those oreo cookies added. A real treat!

  3. I love how easy this is – you don’t even have to melt the chocolate first! But I’m just a little concerned about the recipe. How are 10 oreos possibly enough?! Isn’t the answer to everything in life “more oreos!” πŸ˜‰

  4. I’m the same way about cooking. It is therapeutic to me as well. I kind of go into my own little world when cooking. This Valentine oreo bark would be great for Valentines day and I personally have a family member that I know would love for me to make them some πŸ™‚

    1. Same here. And, I get totally annoyed when someone comes into the kitchen and interrupts my groove. πŸ™‚

  5. Mmmm… this looks delectable. I saw earlier today somewhere was charging $2 for a chocolate covered strawberry! I can buy a whole pint for less than that and do it myself. So I’m all about the DIY Valentine treats! I’m loving this bark. It’s festive, has chocolate and sprinkles and OREOS! Can’t go wrong when those delicious cookies are included! Can’t wait to make this with my kids!

    1. These insane prices are exactly why we do all of our treats the old fashioned way – at home!

    1. Believe it or not, Oreos are not a common item in our pantry. I bought a bunch on sale at Christmas time for another recipe, and the left over bags made it all the way to February. Not bad!

  6. This looks a absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day! My hubby loves chocolate bark- well he loves anything chocolate. The Oreos on top is like the icing on the cake for him too! Can’t wait to make this!

  7. I find cooking and baking very relaxing as well and that;s the reason I am in kitchen so much. Love simple recipes that are quick to make with few ingredients. We only recently got to taste chocolate bark and got very addicted to them. My boys (including the husband) would love this oreo topped bark.

    1. Being in the kitchen, preparing recipes for family provides such pleasure; does it not? πŸ™‚

  8. Whoa this looks unreal. I usually just make regular chocolate bark but I’m loving the red. Need to source some vegan candy so I can give it a try! (Luckily, Oreos are accidentally vegan πŸ™Œ )
