I know you’ve all been waiting for this! After having the Holiday Cookie Exchange with the bloggers two weekends ago, I’ve been hounded for this recipe! I never thought people would be so interested; it’s so easy! It’s actually an adaptation of the Oreo Bark Recipe I used to make almost every single day when I worked at the chocolate store years ago…oh the things I could make for you…((smirk))
24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
24 oz white chocolate chips
One box of TJ’s Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s
1. Line an extra large cookie sheet with waxed paper. Set aside.
2. Empty Joe-Joe’s (Ok, this picture isn’t of Joe-Joe’s because I didn’t have a box and just some mint oreos. Sorry). onto a chopping board and chop into coarse pieces.
3. Reserve 1.5 C of the chopped pieces, the largest ones you can get from the pile of chopped ones.
4. Carefully melt the white chocolate first (ie I don’t use a double broiler because of water contamination threat, so microwave on medium for 30 seconds at a time to melt the chocolate w/o burning it). Add in the cookie pieces minus the reserved cup and a half.
5. Immediately transfer the white chocolate cookie mix to the waxed paper on the cookie sheet and spread out evenly.
6. Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in the same way you did the white chocolate and spread evenly on top of the white chocolate cookie mixture.
7. Take the reserved 1.5 C of cookie pieces and spread over the top of the semi-sweet chocolate layer. Press down the cookie pieces with the back of a spoon.
8. Let cool at room temperature until it’s slightly hardened by not all the way. (if you stick it in the fridge, it might cause the chocolate to bloom = white streaks on the chocolate) and cut into blocks.
9. Store blocks in an air tight container and enjoy!
You can use all sorts of cookies in the mixture along with dried fruit and pretzels/crackers. The bark world is open to anything!!!
