Oreo Peppermint Bark

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!

    1. 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!

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

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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!
