OREO PEPPERMINT BARK


 



OREO PEPPERMINT BARK





Delicious white chocolate peppermint rind garnished with crushed oreos and candy canes! This holiday treat takes just 7 ingredients and 10 minutes to prepare!

Ingredients

  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 12 Oreo cookies, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon canola, coconut or vegetable oil
  • 16 ounces of high quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 16 ounces of high quality white chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract, divided
  • 6 candy canes, crushed

Instructions

First, line bottom and sides of 9x12-inch rectangular pan with parchment paper, smoothing out folds; put aside.

Then, place semi-sweet chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. Melt in microwave, in 20 second increments, stirring with a rubber spatula and scraping sides after each increment, until chocolate is completely melted and can be stirred completely smooth. Once melted, add 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Quickly pour the melted semi-chocolate into the prepared baking dish, spread it with a spatula in a thin, smooth layer. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator for 20 minutes; it will not be completely resolved.


In the meantime, prepare the next layer of chocolate. Combine the white chocolate and oil in a medium heat and microwave resistant bowl according to the same instructions you followed for melting the semi-sweet chocolate. Once melted, incorporate 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract and beat with a whisk.

Sprinkle half the crushed candy canes and half the chopped Oreo cookies over the semi-cooled chocolate. Then pour all the white chocolate over it. Spread carefully into a smooth layer. Sprinkle remaining crushed candy canes and Oreo cookies evenly over wet chocolate. Refrigerate the bark until completely hardened, about 1 hour. Once completely set, remove the chocolate from the pan and discard the baking paper.

Break it into large or small pieces, or use a very sharp knife to cut it into small or large squares. Store the rind in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature just before serving. Happy Cooking Time.
