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.

Enjoy!

Description:

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!


Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

  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.

Notes:

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

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    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…

  6. 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

  7. ‘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 😉

  8. 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. ; )

  9. 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!!

  10. 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!!

  11. 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!!

  12. 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!

  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. 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 🙂

  15. 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!
