Today, I made this Cookies and Cream Bark and am over the moon. 🙂 Let me start at the very beginning.

I am a big fan of white chocolate in all its forms. I also like chocolate biscuits. Knowing this you can imagine my absolute happiness when I discovered Hershey’s Kisses – Cookies and Creme a few of years ago. That I went bonkers  over them is an understatement. 😀

Alas, this divine chocolate is not very easily available in Mumbai and I tend to pester anyone travelling to US or Europe for them (and for Sour Cream and Onion Dip 🙂). I was determined to make this wonderful dessert for myself and a simple search on the internet led me to the Cookies and Cream Oreo Bark recipe at Bakers Royale. I have adapted this recipe to make this White Chocolate and Oreo Bark.

There were many reasons I made this White Chocolate and Oreo Cookie bark yesterday.

  1. My friend Hetal (she of the Fusion Delight fame) has been plying me with goodies and I wanted to do make something nice for her son and her.
  2. As many of you may have noticed, my posts have not been appearing in the WordPress Reader. I think I have finally resolved the issue {fingers crossed} and so I needed something to celebrate.
  3. There was an animated discussion at work about how divine Vanilla Ice Cream with Crushed Oreo tastes.

Time: 30 Mins

Makes: 25 to 30 Pieces

Ingredients

  1. White Chocolate – 500 gms
  2. Mini Oreos – 10 to 12

Method to Make the Cookies and Cream Bark 

  1. The Preparations
    1. Chop the white chocolate compound to 1/2″ pieces.
    2. Chop the Oreo cookies into small pieces. Be careful and do not crush them to a powder.
    3. Line a 8″ pan with parchment or butter paper. Ensure that parchment paper is larger than the pan and overhangs the edge of the pan by at least 1″.
  2. Making the Cookies and Cream Bark 
    1. Using the double-boiler method, melt the white chocolate.
    2. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
    3. Set aside about 3 tbsp of the crushed Oreos.
    4. With a gentle hand, mix the rest of the crushed Oreos into the white chocolate. Do not mix too much. If you do then Oreos will disintegrate further and make the bark very dark.
    5. Pour the chocolate into the lined pan and ensure it forms an even layer.
    6. Sprinkle the rest of the crushed Oreos on the top.
  3. If you wish to cut the pieces:
    1. Refrigerate for about 5 to 7 minutes till the white chocolate hardens just a bit. Use a knife and cut the pieces.
    2. Continue to refrigerate for about 15 mins till the White Chocolate and Oreo Bark hardens completely.
    3. With the help of the parchment paper, lift the chocolate out.
    4. Use a sharp knife to cut/separate the pieces.
  4. If you just want to break the bark into uneven pieces (like I have done):
    1. Refrigerate for 20 minutes till the white chocolate hardens.
    2. With the help of the parchment paper, lift the chocolate out.
    3. Break the bark by hand or then use a sharp knife to cut uneven pieces.
  5. Storing the White Chocolate and Oreo Bark
    1. Let the pieces come back to room temperature.
    2. Store in an air-tight tin in a a cool place.

    1. Thank you. Thank you. More than that I am pleased that my tech skills are not rusty.

      When I dedicated 30 mins to the problem, I solved it. 🙂 🙂

    1. Dangerous it is. I must have eaten quite a bit during the “tasting”. To avoid further damage, I distributed most of it to my neighbours and colleagues at work. 😀

Hey! I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Do leave me a comment.
