Oreo Cookie Bark

So the past few days I may have gotten a fairly significant amount of emails telling me that some of you lovelies have “unsubscribed” from my tri-weekly updates.

I also may now be in a deep dark depression.


You wanna know who I blame here?  I blame the numskulls who came up with New Year’s resolutions.


I’m not trying to be the Grinch who Stole All Hope…but people, ME?  You’re leaving ME???

I LOVE you!

I want to MARRY you!

I want to make your tummies HAPPY!

I want to give you recipes that will make your FRIENDS tummies happy.


I am a happy giver, not a hope stealer.

Please believe me.

I want to come over and brush your hair and say all soothing-like that no one likes to hug skinny people.  All the bones and sharp edges aren’t what good hugs are made of.


You work so hard, you deserve a bite or 20 of dessert.

You deserve to be a cozy hug-giver.

Please come back to me.


Fine, whatever…go get skinny.

I’ll see you in a month.

Clearly I have abandonment issues…more on that another day.


In the meantime, all of my very best friends who know unconditional love and are still here, let’s make some candy.

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…

PhotobucketThen grab some Oreos…
PhotobucketAnd chop them up too…
PhotobucketMelt half the chocolate and stir in your crumbs.
PhotobucketSpread that on a lined baking sheet…
PhotobucketWhile the chocolate is setting up make the filling.
I don’t know about you, they should start selling Oreo filling on it’s own. Just a thought.
PhotobucketWhen your chocolate is set, spread the filling on top…
PhotobucketAll the way to the edges.
PhotobucketNow repeat the process again wit the rest of the chocolate and cookies…
PhotobucketLet that whole situation set up and then cut it into pieces…
It might break up a bit, but that’s fine…it’s a messy, delicious excuse for dessert.

Um what?! This is amazing. Those people with their diets don’t know what they’re missing.

Colleen @ What

The simple ingredient list of this recipe is so awesome! And dangerous… This bark could be whipped up in no time…and eaten in no time too. 🙁

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

Triweekly updates? I subscribe to your daily updates through RSS! Is there something else I am missing out on? I am just glad I didn’t miss this wonderful bark

Cookbook Queen

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.


Can’t wait to make this! U are my hero btw!!

Glory/ Glorious Treats

From one dessert loving blogger to another…. change your e-mail notifications so you don’t know when a few silly people unsubscribe.

This looks SO amazing!!! Keep up the beautiful, sweet treats!


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.

Robyn Stone | Add a Pinch

Well, if we pin it, print it or bookmark it, then when we go get skinny, we can make it. Right? Is that how it works?

How in the world could anyone abandon you!?


The more broccoli they eat, the more cake they leave for us! Who needs them!


So sorry for those other people, but more treats for us!!!

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……

Kim@Treats & Trinkets

I’m not all that chuffed about being skinny. Hand me some Oreo cookie bark. That looks insanely good.


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!!!!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet

I won’t stop reading but man oh man does this make dieting hard!


Bah, who needs to be skinny when you can eat Oreo cookie bark?

Aimee @ ShugarySweets

Clearly they will be back. When they realize you made them Oreo Cookie Bark. If not? MORE FOR ME! And yes. I will marry you. Thanks for asking!


I’m into getting fit- I’m just going to exercise more and still eat dessert! (and still read your blog)


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!

Elizabeth Ann

Oh delish! 🙂

tracy {pale yellow}

Thank you for posting delicious desserts! You can can skinny-people food anywhere.


Preachin’ the truth! You keep on with your bad self girl! I love it!


Oh wow! I have a major weakness for Oreos. Too bad for those folks who aren’t getting your updates because this recipe looks amaaaazing!


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. 🙂


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.


dump you… this? are you kidding me. Never!!!
You are too funny, real, and provide wonderful dessert, gift, and gluttony-fullfilling ideas!


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.



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!

Averie @ Averie Cooks

Don’t worry, folks will be back by the end of the month 🙂 Plans to overhaul one’s life generally wane quickly when the cravings for chocolate set in 🙂

Emily @ Life on Food

Just because you read and look have doesn’t mean you have to eat. I will probably be eating but still…keep on the desserts!

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

Oh dear.
I mean that in the best way possible.

Luv What You Do

I love all of the layers in this bark. Oreos are my favorite by far, so I will definitely add this to my holiday list!


Lol!! Who wouldn’t want this? Oreo anything is a balanced part of every diet.

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

This is so genius. Like, SUPER. Those people are cuh-razy. Certifiable. 🙂


Girl, I could never leave you. Resolutions, be damned.

Mikayla Sweitzer

don’t worry, i shall never leave you silly!
what are resolutions? skinny people? diets? huh? i don’t understand.


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.


YUM! Oreos are my favorite!

Katherine @ Grass Stains

I’m still here! Happy new year!

sue @ cakeballs, cookies and more

aw I’m sorry you lost some people this month, they will be back. My resolution was to not lick the computer screen when reading posts like yours, and so far I am doing it;p But it’s hard, this looks so good.


I’m still here!!! I’m trying to gain weight before my wedding! I’ll never leave you or your recipes 🙂

Belinda @themoonblushbaker

How dare they!? You blog is the only thing to keep me sane in the world of dieting right now. keep the chocolate butter and sugar coming

Prairie Princess

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


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 🙂


You know what we SHOULD do? We should pin desserts like crazy. Just explode Pinterest with dessert pins. That will show them.

Miss Overballe

Great Idea!! I’m in 🙂


i am so doing this!

Sue {munchkin munchies}

INCREDIBLE! For what it’s worth, I will never leave you:)

Judit & Corina @WineDineDaily

Sounds so divine you Oreo Cookie recipe!!! Had to smile over all the dessert lovers comments and here is our 2 cent…Life is uncertain, eat dessert first 🙂


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!!


LOL They’ll be back!


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!

mary friederichaen

I am not going anywhere! And after this recipe my husband is going to want to marry you!! Hmmmm…that may not be good! LOL! Can’t wait to try this….all things in moderation!
Happy New Year!
