How To Make Christmas Bark

  • Crush Oreos – Using about 1 row of Oreo Cookies, chop into small pieces and arrange on a lined baking sheet. You can use more Oreos if you want to make a larger batch.
  • Melt Chocolate – Microwave chocolate for about 1 minute, stir and heat for 15 second intervals until completely melted. Pour over the Oreo cookies.
  • Decorate – Sprinkle M&M’s and sprinkles over the top of the chocolate. Get creative with whatever toppings you want.
  • Let Set – Let the chocolate set up for a couple of hours until it is solid. Use a knife and cut into small pieces.

How Long Does Christmas Bark Last?

Store your bark in an airtight container and it will last for about 2 weeks!

Can I Freeze Christmas Bark?

Absolutely! Once the bark is set up completely and you cut into pieces, you can store in an airtight container for 2-3 months. Just let it thaw on the counter before serving.

Recipe Tips & Suggestions

  • Get creative! I uses M&M’s and Christmas sprinkles to make this, but you can get super creative and use anything that you like. For Christmas I wanted to stick with red and green, but you don’t have it. You could use colored chocolate, candy canes, Andes’ mints or anything else you like.
  • Sweet & Salty. I used Oreo cookies so it is a sweet on sweet combination, but if you like sweet & salty swap out pretzel pieces for a twist.
  • In a hurry. Let your chocolate set up in the fridge for it to set up faster.
  • Gift as a gift. Place pieces of Christmas bark in a clear plastic bag and tie with a ribbon for a fun holiday gift to give friends and neighbors.

Melting Chocolate

I like to use the bars of White Almond Bark for this recipe because it melts quickly and very smooth. But you can use any white chocolate that you like.

  • Break or chop the chocolate into chunks and place in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Place in the microwave and heat for 1 minute. Use a spatula to stir the chocolate, it will still be mostly solid.
  • Heat at 15-20 second intervals, stirring after each time, until it is completely melted and smooth.

You can also use a double boiler, and heat on the stovetop if you prefer.
