Last Minute Holiday Treats

Here's an easy and yummy treat if you need to make something to take to a holiday gathering. I found the original recipe at the Family Fun website.

Chocolate Cookie Bark
You will need:
20 Oreo-type cookies
2 2/3 cups chocolate chips (I mixed semi-sweet and milk chocolate)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Step 1:
Crush the cookies
It might help if you wear pajamas and a cape!

   Step 2:
Melt the chips in the microwave, then add the vanilla.
I checked on the chips and stirred at one-minute intervals.
   Step 3:
Combine the melted chocolate and cookies.
Step 4:
Spread the mixture in a 9x9 pan that has been lined with waxed paper or foil (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray). Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Step 5:
Break the bark into pieces and enjoy!
This tasted fine as-is, but I thought of some other combinations that might be interesting:
  • oreos with white chocolate chips (omit the vanilla)
  • mint oreos
  • regular oreos with peppermint extract
  • regular flavored oreos with the green filling
