By the Batch – Cookies & Cream Bark

Well I am now 38 1/2 weeks along in my pregnancy and life has become a bit uncomfortable! Carrying this baby around has officially worn me out so I’ve been looking for activities and recipes that are quick to complete and don’t require a lot of standing. This Cookies & Cream Bark totally fits the bill and is amazingly yummy!

Cookies and Cream Bark

It’s so easy to make this stuff you can hardly call it a recipe. Simply take 10 ounces of white chocolate, chop it up and melt it using a double boiler (or a bowl over a pot with some water simmering in it like I use). Once it’s completely melted and smooth remove it from the heat and let it sit for a few minutes. While you’re waiting, chop up 15 Oreo cookies. Once the chocolate has had a chance to cool stir the cookie pieces in and then spread the whole mixture on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. You can spread it as thick or thin as you like, just remember it’s harder to break apart if you make it too thick. Pop the whole thing in the fridge until it hardens (about 15 minutes) and then break it up into pieces and enjoy!

Some of the recipes I read said to crumble more cookies or nuts over the top to disguise the grey colour created by the crumbs in the chocolate but, since this batch was just for us at home, I didn’t bother. And I don’t think it looks unappetizing at all!
