This is such a great recipe to make for any holiday because it’s completely customizable and ready in minutes. The only ingredients which remain constant are the Oreo cookies and chocolate, a combination which is delicious even on its own. However, with different candies and food coloring you can change the appearance and flavor according to the time of year.
During the Christmas season, I keep the chocolate white and add candy cane pieces to the recipe. For a Valentine’s Day treat, you can add red food coloring and incorporate cinnamon hearts into the mix. At Easter, you can color the chocolate to light blue or purple and add Smarties to the recipe. Or at Halloween, orange food coloring and mini marshmallows will provide a tasty variation. Experiment with whatever toppings you like to create your own holiday bark.
- 2 packages white chocolate chips (or a combination of white & dark)
- 1 package of oreo cookies, crushed
- 1 cup candies of your choice, crushed if needed
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Spread the Oreos and any additional toppings onto the paper in a thin layer. Place the chocolate chips into a large microwave safe bowl and heat for 1-2 minutes. Stir and heat for another minute or two until melted. Alternately you can heat the chocolate in a saucepan on the stove. Pour over the cookies until completely covered, spreading into a thin layer 1/2 inch thick. Chill in the freezer for about 20 minutes or until the chocolate becomes solid. Break into 2 inch pieces and serve.
