Candy Corn Oreo Cookie Bark

Last week I tempted you with Candy Corn Oreo Truffles, professed my love of Brach’s Candy Corn and prepared you for more delicious Candy Corn Oreo recipes in the near future.

After posting the recipe, I received a few emails from readers urging me to try candy corn mixed with salted peanuts. Say what? Clearly this little combination of sweet and salty bliss is widely known, but obviously I missed the memo!

Since I always have peanuts in the house, I immediately tossed them into a ramekin with a handful of candy corn. And let me just tell you – this combo is no joke! In fact, I think it might just be life changing. Yep, I said it – life changing, my friends. At that very moment, I decided to whip together a batch of Candy Corn Oreo Bark flecked with salty peanuts and pretzels.

The idea of Candy Corn Bark really isn’t anything new – I actually made a version of this recipe a few years back. However, this time, I’ve kicked it up a notch with Candy Corn Oreos.

Halloween just got more awesome, people. The sweet and salty combination, along with that signature Oreo cookie, makes for a delectable treat all your ghouls and goblins will be drooling over.

Candy Corn Oreo Bark

Yield: 20 pieces

Prep Time: 10 minutes


10 Candy Corn Oreos, chopped
1/2 cup small pretzel stick pieces
1/2 cup salted peanuts
12 ounces white chocolate, chopped (see note below)
3/4 cup candy corn
festive sprinkles


1. Line an 8×8 baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Spread the cookies, pretzels and peanuts into the bottom of prepared pan.

3. Melt chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave at 50% power, stirring frequently until almost melted. Remove from the heat while there are still a few pieces of unmelted chocolate; stir until smooth.

4. Drizzle chocolate with a spoon over the goodies in the pan, spreading the top flat to coat evenly.

5. Top with candy corn and sprinkles. Let cool until firm. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


- I used three 4-ounce Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bars. I find that white chocolate chips can be difficult to melt.

    I love recipes that take something pre-packaged, like candy corn, and convert it into something new and cool. Awesome!

    I was just introduced to the “Try eating a piece of Candy corn with a Peanut” Combo myself! My Mother-In-Law called it a “Home Made PayDay Candy Bar”..And that’s exactly what that combo tastes really tripped me out!

    I don’t know about candy corn oreos, but our favorite “trail mix” for fall is a bowl of candy corn, salted peanuts, plain or peanut m&m’s with a few raisins thrown in for good measure! And it’s colorfull too!

    I didn’t know candy corn and peanuts is a combination. I would have never thought of that. But I’m really craving some candy corn. The bark looks fantastic!

    I’m so happy to hear I’m not the only candy corn and candy corn oreo obsessed girl out there! I made fudge with mine, which was incredible, but I didn’t think to add salty peanuts. Awesome idea!

    I adore all things sweet and salty! Candy corn and peanuts is one of my favorite things of the fall. Love that you put them into a fun and colorful bark with the Oreos:-) I just posted a recipe today with these new Oreos too!!!

    OH WOW! I love candy corn! I wonder what it would be like with regular oreos if I can’t find the candy corn oreos?


    • Jamie — October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

      Hi! I think the Golden Oreos would be just as delicious! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  20. sweetraisin — October 1, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    um so…. this looks so yummy & fun too… went to Target to purchase these Oreos… and they are out… and the other location is out too… apparently the idiots at Nabisco did not make enough of these elusive & popular “Candy Corn Oreos” I am wondering though, if I can make this recipe with the vanilla Oreos. of course it won’t be as awesome… but… it’s the only option I now have…. ;-)


    • Jamie — October 1, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      Hi! Yeah, I have heard from numerous people that these are selling out like crazy. I honestly think the Golden Oreos would be just as delicious! Thanks for stopping by!

  21. Mary — October 6, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Hi! What if we don’t have an 8×8 baking sheet? And can we omit the peanuts with something else?


    • Jamie — October 8, 2012 at 7:24 pm

      You can use any small baking dish – completely up to you. Have a great day.

    OMG that’s simply brilliant! Love the recipe!

    Candy Corn is my favorite Halloween candy. I thought I was the only one who loved them.
    I ate a whole bag in one week, boy did I feel guilty. I’m going to definitely make these this week.
