Oreo Bark is the simplest treat you could ever make. Just be careful not to eat the whole tray!
I feel like I’ve been talking to you guys about boxes for eleventy million years. First it was filling them. Then unpacking them. Everywhere we looked in the new house, there were boxes. Opened, unopened, half full, empty and waiting to be broken down. And now they’re almost all gone and I couldn’t be happier.
We’re finally settling into our new home and it’s just starting to feel as though we actually live here. For weeks, it felt like we were staying at a rented vacation home. Only instead of a gorgeous beach view, we’re staring at a construction site with mounds of dirt, rocks and lots of mud.
One of the best things about moving is that we’re so close to family. My dad is super happy because he’s able to get his daily Elle fix, home-cooked meals and delicious stuff like this Oreo Bark.
If I’m totally honest with you, the inspiration for this bark came simply from needing to use up a few bags of white chocolate chips and the rest of a pack of Red Velvet Oreos I bought (or over-bought, as the case may be). If you can’t get your hands on Red Velvet Oreos, really any Oreo will flavor will do. I’m kinda daydreaming about a milk chocolate and peanut butter Oreo combo – just sayin’.
That’s literally all there is to this recipe – white chocolate and Oreos make a crisp, crunchy-yet-melty satisfying treat that any Oreo fan will adore. You can whip it up in a matter of minutes, and then just pop it in the fridge for a while. It’ll be ready for an after dinner dessert, or with your coffee break tomorrow afternoon.
It’s simple sweets like this that are easy to make on the fly when family stops by and starts raiding the kitchen for a sweet treat. I have a feeling it’s going to take me a hot minute to get used to the new kitchen too, so you may see some simple desserts in the coming weeks while I get my bearings!
