Oreo Cookie Bark

Oreo Cookie Bark

Oreo Cookie Bark is a simple, no bake treat that takes your love for Oreo cookies to the next level! Two cream layers of dark chocolate, loaded with crushed cookies, filled with creamy, homemade Oreo filling!

*This recipe was originally posted in January, 2013. 

When I first posted this recipe back in January, 2013 (omg how is that 5 years ago?!) I knew it would be a hit. I hadn’t ever seen anything like this before, and of course, any chance I have to make homemade Oreo filling I am all in.

I mean, I am 100% a filling girl…is there even a point to eating a non-Double Stuf Oreo? I mean, unless you’re on a diet or something? I did create a whole recipe for Cookie Filling Dip…it’s really the best way to portion control your filling to cookie ratio.

Anyhow, this is really a next level Oreo treat. You have chocolate, Oreo cookies, AND a heavy-handed helping of cream filling. Plus, you don’t have to turn on your oven, and I actually keep mine in the freezer during the warm months for a sweet treat when I’m in the mood. Which, lets be real, is pretty much always.

Oreo Cookie Bark

I am all about bark.  It’s like a lazy person’s candy.  No molds necessary.

Start by chopping up some nice dark chocolate. I say “nice” because the better quality chocolate you use, the better this will be. PhotobucketThen grab some Oreos. This will be one of the only times I say to use diet Oreos. You don’t need the extra filling in the crushed bits, because you’re going to take care of the filling situation on your own…PhotobucketAnd chop them up very finely. You can use a food processor, a blender, or a knife and a cutting board, just make sure there aren’t large pieces.

Melt half the chocolate and stir in your crumbs.

Spread that on a lined baking sheet and place it in the freezer to set up.

While the chocolate is chilling, make the filling.

Oreo should really package their filling and sell it on its own…I mean…


When your chocolate is set, spread the filling on top…


All the way to the edges, and chill this while you prepare the remaining chocolate and cookies.

Now repeat the process again. Melt the remaining chocolate and crush up seven more Oreo cookies. Spread this on top of the filling…PhotobucketSeriously.

Let that whole situation set up (I do place it in the freezer to speed up the process) and then cut it into pieces…

It might break up a bit, but that’s fine…it’s a messy, delicious excuse for dessert.

You can make this as thin or thick as you prefer, just don’t spread the chocolate too thin, as it won’t hold together very well.

Oreo Cookie Bark is a simple, no bake treat that takes your love for Oreo cookies to the next level! Two cream layers of dark chocolate, loaded with crushed cookies, filled with creamy, homemade Oreo filling!


  • 16 ounces good quality dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 14 Oreo Cookies
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar


  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Finely crush or chop the Oreo cookies, divide in half and set aside.
  3. Chop the chocolate and divide in half. Place half the chocolate in a medium, heat safe bowl. Bring an inch of water in a medium pot to a simmer. Place the bowl on top of the simmering pot (making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water) and melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. Alternately, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30- second increments, stirring in between each until melted and smooth.
  4. When chocolate is melted stir in half of the crushed Oreos. Spread the mixture evenly in a thin layer on your prepared pan.
  5. Place in freezer to set, 10-15 minutes.
  6. In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the butter and shortening until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the powdered sugar. Turn the mixer up to medium-high speed and mix for 1 more minute, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Set aside.
  7. Remove chocolate from freezer and spread the filling on top of the chocolate using an off-set spatula. Place back in freezer for another 15 minutes.
  8. Melt the remaining chocolate and stir in the remaining Oreo cookies using the same method as before. Spread this evenly on top of the chilling filling layer. Place back in the freezer for another 10-15 minutes until top layer of chocolate is set.
  9. Keep frozen or refrigerate until ready to serve.
  10. Cut into pieces.


Cut when chilled.
Store in refrigerator for up to 5 days

      Oh, I just meant that I post 3 times a week.. you should be getting them all in your reader. I think the unsubscription notifications come from email subscribers. So sad πŸ™

  1. Unsubscribers?? Are people confused and think that now it’s 2013, things have gotten so futurey that we gain weight from looking at pictures online?


    Trust me when I say that I’m a firm believer in dessert. Always dessert.

  2. I have been saying they should sell filling for years now. I mean, really. It’s a totally untapped market. WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM OREO?

    Also, please put this in my face now.

  3. Mary Lynn

    I will never leave you….. My family would disown me…Your desserts are amazing!!! Love desserts that are quick and easy… I am not a fan of oreo cookies. I know, what is wrong with me? This looks so yummy, that I will stop on the way home and pick up a bag. Thanks for the extra five pounds I gained over the holiday……It was well worth every pound……

  4. I still love you! You can come over and smother me with sweets if you like!!!!! Poo on those unsubscribers, they will never know what they are missing. Unless they resubscribe and look at your archives. Which they will because you are so awesome I’m sure they can’t stay away for very long!!!!

  5. Marcia

    I’m trying to eat healthier and exercise like I was before the holidays. That doesn’t mean that I can’t still read your blog and save the recipes for when I want to eat treats. Your recipes are my favorites to try! They’ll be back!

  6. Caley

    Um…how the heck does getting emails from a hilarious, delicious baking blog make a person gain weight? Anyway, this looks great. I love reading your posts! I don’t know how widespread it is, but sometimes the Coldstone in my town has Oreo-filling-flavored ice cream. I think you’ve said you aren’t crazy about ice cream, but I thought I’d mention the flavor. πŸ™‚

  7. Melissa

    I have no idea why they would leave you! They’re insane in the membrane! They’ll be back…and maybe we won’t let them in the cool club then.

  8. It makes me sad when people diet and don’t think they can have dessert. Even if it is a very indulgent recipe, there are usually ways to lighten it up. And I could never unsubscribe dessert from my blog-reading diet. Absurd!

    Here’s the thing, I give it two weeks tops. They’ll be back in hordes. Especially when they need a knockout recipe like Oreo bark to impress guests or take to a potluck.


  9. Kasey

    I love reading your posts almost as much as I love what you fix so you won’t be losing me! These look absolutely delish. Oreos are a big love of mine and I am one of the crazies that just started dieting (again) so I’m going to have to wait a wee bit to make these. Can’t wait to try them though!

  10. stacy

    I absolutely LOVE your blog and your recipes, but my advice would be to make your full posts show up in Google reader. Most of us subscribe to so many blogs, that we just don’t have time to click on everything! Sadly, I often end up unsubscribing when someone changes their blog to where the full feed is not available.

  11. Skinny is overrated. Also, the skinniest girls are typically some of the grouchiest and meanest girls. Coincidence? I think not. πŸ™‚ What the world needs more of is THIS dessert and your many other delicious treats. Keep them coming. I shall not leave you!

  12. For what it’s worth, I don’t subscirbe to anyone’s blog just b/c I don’t want the extra email. It’s nothing personal … I still visit faithfully and love your desserts, pictures, and writing!

    THIS I have to make soon πŸ™‚

  13. personally..I’ve been on a diet already for over a year however…I LOVE to bake..so I continue to bake for others..and take pleasure in seeing them enjoy it..win/win! They win b/c they enjoy the tasty treats..and I win b/c I don’t get the calories but still get to keep my hobby.

    Hang in there! They’ll either be back..or new folks will find you (like I did).

    Happy New Year!!

  14. Lori

    Well I just adore you, I went out today to buy all the ingrediants for this and will be making it shortly. Thank you for all you do!

  15. Vicky

    All I can say is YUM! And I don’t make resolutions because I know I’m not going to stick to them. I like my sweets tooooo much!!

  16. Debbie

    My daughter makes fun of me because even when I am on a diet I LOVE to look at all the yummies. The pictures alone can satisfy a sweet tooth. Most of them I make for my kid’s class parties and holidays and the rest of the time they are my tri-weekly dose of eye candy!! Keep your chin up and the yummy pictures and recipes coming!!

  17. Liz Lovely

    I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t eat dessert. New Years to me means, workout more, eat more!! Keep doing what you do best!!

  18. Heather M.

    Never fear, Shelly! Your loyal fans are still here…and here to stay! Your blog is awesome. End of story. All those New Years resolution people will be back after they go off their diets. ; )

  19. ‘Nothing taste as good as skinny feels’….is bullsh*t. I’m all for getting skinny…but it’s not like I’m going to stop eating dessert. Let’s be real people. They’ll be back πŸ˜‰

  20. joann drye

    Well I hope all those skinny built like a sack of coathangers have fun…. What is life without some desert, how boring.. who needs em? they can go look at salads… I will stick with the good stuff…

    big hug from Oklahoma

  21. Angeline Pitts

    That seems so simple. I figured there had to be more to it, but it doesn’t even involve a lot of ingredients! I love it! Going to now find a time to make it and then figure out what to do with the leftover Oreos…hmmmmm…

  22. Veronica

    “…no one likes to hug skinny people. All the bones and sharp edges aren’t what good hugs are made of”. Thank you, Shelly, you are soo right!!! =o)

  23. Crystal

    It is all about moderation people! Feed your kids, friends, neighbors, postman-whoever! Strengthen your will power, you can do it!

    Can’t wait to try this one, thanks Shelley!

  24. Julie

    I’m sticking with you my friend! I’ll take a friend who gives me sweets any day over one who gives me salad πŸ™‚ Keep up the great work, I love your ideas!

  25. Maggie

    I went back on weight watchers but am still visiting your site daily πŸ™‚ It’s all about moderation…and giving a ton of goodies away after I’ve had my baking fix πŸ™‚

  26. elizabeth

    I will never leave you. Last year I unsubscribed from a half dozen less-fat, no fun, weight watching blogs that stole my joy. I look forward to your blog each and every day!!! Don’t go anywhere!!!

  27. Marilyn M.

    People r crazy! Dont they know the secret….everything in moderation. Whatever they lose now they will gain back by summer!! Keep these great recipes and sarcasm coming πŸ™‚

  28. Leila Rockwell

    I just finished coping your Oreo Cookie Bark and am anxious to make it. I’ve also looked at some of the rest of your recipes and read the comments and plan on putting it on my favorite lists. Thank you for posting such great looking sweets. Leila

  29. Courtney

    I think your wonderful, amazing, talented, genuine, beautiful, hilarious (1. Extremely amusing 2. Boisterously merry) and dedicated! I’m stayn’ right here!

  30. Sheila

    I LOVE ogling your goodies! I might not fix them because I would be 200 plus pounds again, but I love your recipes and your writing. Keep it up Sister! Some people have no self control.

  31. Nancy L. Bowen

    Some people just carry things a bit too far. {eople should remember—“everything in moderation.” You don’t have to eat everything, and you don’t have to eat the WHOLE thing (dessert). A little bit never hurt anyone, AND might improve your mood! Thanks for all you do! The recipes are woderful.

  32. Christina M

    “Everything in moderation.” That is my motto. PLUS, I view recipes like this for scrumptious wonderful desserts as a reason to get a crowd together, make the dessert, and SHARE IT. I don’t want to die tomorrow and have had a protein bar, small salad, and poached chicken breast with broccoli the day before. Know what I mean? HAHA. So keep your wonderful recipes comin’!!!!

  33. You are the best!! I made these today… only difference was adding 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to the filling and BOOM– football treats for the playoffs!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

  34. kelly

    I just love your blog! Ilove the recipes (especially the oreo recipes-unfortunately I love them) but I reallly enjoyed reading your stories and comments! You are so funny and I can relate!! Thanks for making me smile!! This is the first time I have ever commented – I just really enjoyed reading it! I will be back!!

  39. Question……..what brand names of good quality chocolate do you recommend? And what can you use in place of shortening since I don’t keep that in the house and prefer not to buy……..I am looking forward to making this however! Thank you!

    1. Shelly

      You can use all butter in place of shortening. And I would use Guittard, Ghirardelli, even Trader Joe’s sells a pound size chocolate bar perfect for melting. I wouldn’t recommend using regular chocolate chips. My favorite is Callebaut.

    I loved the recipe but got a lot of separation of top layer of chocolate as I was cutting ( and I also tried breaking ) into pieces– The bottom 2 layers held together well though. Will you please provide any tips to prevent this from happening next time?? Thank you!
    I love your book and site!!
