My absolute favorite bark EVER – Oreo Peppermint Bark. So easy a kid can make it!

A few weeks ago Jordan got in her “I want to make something” mood so I stopped what I was doing and immediately took her in the kitchen. She rarely wants to bake with me, so I gotta seize that opportunity when I can!

Her requirement was that the recipe include candy canes. She wanted to make something as a “trial run” for Christmas. I swear, this kid is going to be in testing when she grows up. It’s all about “I have to try it to see if I like it.”

{BTW, I have still not found a new monkey bread recipe she deems “suitable” for Christmas morning. Sigh.}

Can you tell who rules my roost? Anyway.

Obviously, I wanted something easy, so I immediately thought of bark. I mean – a kid can make bark without any trouble at all. The hardest part is crushing the candy canes…and not getting them all over the place.

So yeah, pretty much this recipe is so easy a kid can do it…because one did.

I think this is my most favorite bark ever. I can’t stop eating it! And the best part? It was a trial for Christmas Eve… so we get to make it again!

I bet you want the recipe right? Well, you’re in luck. I’m a part of the Handmade Holidays: Bake Craft Sew this year with A Southern Fairytale, and you can find the recipe for the Oreo Peppermint Bark here on her site!

  1. Yum yum! Can’t wait to try this one Dorothy!

  2. Oreos, chocolate, and candy canes. Seriously – how can you go wrong? I like Jordan’s thinking. ๐Ÿ™‚ Candy canes, while boring to some, are one of my favorite candies ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. This bark looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is the perfect Christmas Bark!

  5. LOVE having you involved this year! Thank you so much for joining in! This oreo peppermint bark is AMAZING.

    One of my kids’ favorite breakfasts is monkey bread!!! <3

  6. I think adding oreos to peppermint bark was such a fantastic idea!

  7. This is gorgeous, Dorothy! Peppermint bark is one of my favorite holiday treats – and with Oreos? Swoon!!

  8. Looks amazing!! I’m doing something similar with the green minty Oreos!!! Mmmmm– peppermint/mint + oreos = LOVE

  9. Dorothy, I not only want to make this for Christmas, I want to frame that photo and put it up in my kitchen for a Christmas decoration!

  10. So fun!! Jordan is so going to follow in you foot steps! Already testing recipes!

  11. you have a food blogger in the making Dorothy ๐Ÿ™‚ and I love the candy canes

  12. Oreo, chocolate and candy canes are a wonderful trio! Jordan was spot on!!

  14. I love that Jordan wanted to do a “trial run”. What a pro! Makes me think that I better start doing “trial runs” of all of my Christmas cookies, just to be safe ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Would you believe me if I said I’d never made bark before? Yes, I am feeling shame:) That sugar cookie dough bark sounds incredible! But Oreos and peppermint? Guess I’ll have to sacrifice and make both, just to make sure I like them! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. lol I love Jordan, she’s so awesome! This bark looks so delicious and just screams CHRISTMAS!

  17. I’ve never made bark before. This Oreos and peppermint treat looks so good, I just have to give it a try.

  18. This is so great! I am so making this for my husband’s coworkers for Christmas! I am going to use Peppermint Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s for extra candy cane flavor!!!!

  19. Okay, I’m all over this one.

  20. Loving how easy this recipe is… and pretty!

  21. Bark in a cellophane bag with curling ribbon is the easiest and prettiest gift from the kitchen! Bonus points for the kids being able to make it! I am thinking that Jordan needs a permanent position as flavor suggester in the Crazy For Crust bark department. This crunchy combo is mouth watering!

  22. Aww that’s so sweet (no pun intended?) that Jordan wanted to make something! And even sweeter of you to stop what you were doing that very second and oblige. You’re a wonderful mom — don’t forget that! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Love it! This would be a great gift to send my little sister. You can’t go wrong with oreos! Thank you for sharing!

  24. This sounds awesome! I love that your daughter runs the QA department of your kitchen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Adding Oreos to anything pretty much makes it amazing, so I’m sure this bark is fantastic.

  25. Beautiful and looks delicious! This would be perfect for holiday cookie/candy boxes ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. I am making this today, can’t wait. Thanks!

  35. How would you store this?ย 

    • Store the bark in a sealed container. It’s best eaten at room temperature. In winter, it’s usually okay to leave it on the counter, but if your house is unusually warm (or if you notice it starting to melt) then you can store it in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

  40. Absolutely divine. I just… don’t even have words. A-may-zing!

  41. I love the recipe for Peppermint Bark that Jordan created. ย I would love to publish it in a little e-newsletter that goes to retired teachers, with credit of course to you and Jordan. ย I was planning now for a Christmas issue with several quick, easy, and delicious recipes. ย Would that be all right?

  42. Yes, I can and would be delighted to use your photo as well as the recipe. ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

  43. Oops! ย I have a number out of whack on my email! ย I’m fixing it now. ย So, again, yes I can publish a link back to the recipe and would be happy to do that.
