Cookies and Cream Chocolate Bark

I had an extreme craving the other day for something that was cookies and cream flavour. I have an amazing cookies’ and cream ice cream recipe but I didn’t want to wait hours to dive in and calm my craving. Then I remembered in the shop the other day I saw a chocolate bar with crumbled Oreo’s in it. It was like a light bulb moment, I had plenty of chocolate in the cupboard I always have Oreo’s in stock, hey who doesn’t? And I had lots of fun not so long ago making my strawberries and cream chocolate bark. So I ran to the kitchen at double speed and set about making cookies and cream chocolate bark.

Chocolate

I used two types of chocolate for this bark, a creamy milk chocolate and a creamy white chocolate.

The beauty of homemade chocolate bark, especially if you are just going to sit at home with your partner and devour most of it while watching a movie – me? No, never 😉 You don’t need to get too snobby with the chocolate you use. I used Cadburys, which here in the UK is available everywhere and is the most mainstream chocolate you can get. And it’s never really very pricy. Same with the white chocolate I used Milky Bar, which is available everywhere at reasonable prices.

I don’t see the point in spending a lot on an expensive chocolate that is going to be smothered in toppings. Unless you really like the good stuff, then by all means enjoy 😀

Oreo’s

Everyone knows you can’t have cookies and cream without lashings of Oreo’s. I am sure if you look into it, somewhere there is a law about it! They give this bark a lovely crunchy texture and every bite is just a chocolate cookie heaven.

I am sure last time I was in America they were selling chocolate covered Oreo’s. If you have ever had the pleasure then this is like eating them 😀

Author:
Recipe type: Sweet/Candy
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 slab
Ingredients
  • 200 grams milk chocolate, (7 ounces)
  • 150 grams white chocolate, (5 ounces)
  • 8 Oreo cookies - broken into small pieces
Instructions
  1. Put your Oreo’s in a plastic zip lock bag and bash them into small pieces then place to one side.
  2. Place a large piece of parchment paper around 15 inch square (38x38 centimetre) square on your work surface in preparation.
  3. Break your chocolates up into squares; place the milk in one microwavable bowl and the white into another microwavable bowl.
  4. First melt your milk chocolate on a medium heat initially for 30-second bursts stirring after each one. After 3 bursts of 30 seconds drop to 15 seconds at a time checking after each burst to see when your chocolate has fully melted.
  5. When it has fully melted pour it onto the parchment paper and using a spatula spread it out in a rectangular shape till it is only about 1 centimetre thick.
  6. Quickly pop your white chocolate in the microwave and start on 30-second blasts on a medium heat. The white chocolate will take less time to melt so only do two 30-second blasts then drop to 15 second blasts.
  7. Once it has melted pour it on top of the milk chocolate slab and give it a few swirls with your spatula to help the white chocolate cover most of the milk chocolate and mix it together a little to give it the attractive swirly pattern.
  8. Quickly grab your broken Oreo’s and scatter them all over your chocolate, giving them a gentle press in to help them stick.
  9. If placed in the fridge this slab should be set within 2 hours and will give you that lovely snap when you break it. Kept in an airtight tin in the fridge this chocolate bark will keep for up to 2 weeks.

  2. I always have Oreos in my pantry too…whether I should or not! 🙂 The chocolate-covered ones are usually sold in the US at Christmastime and they’re pretty spectacular, so I know this bark must be just as delicious. I’m pretty sure I could eat the whole batch alone in one sitting! It looks completely addictive.
