Hi there! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m back with another delicious and easy to make treat! Believe it or not, until I made this yummy Oreo Bark, I had never made any sort of chocolate bark recipe. And now that I think about it, I actually have never eaten it either!
When I was at the store the other day, I noticed the spring colored M&M’s were out and I decided it was high-time I made some of this infamous chocolate bark. And it was one of the easiest treat recipes I have ever made.
1 bag vanilla flavor candy melts
8-10 Oreo cookies
1/2 cup M&M’s
To get started, crush up the Oreos into small pieces. I find the easiest way to do this is put them in a ziplock baggie and crush them by hand. You can also try crushing them with a meat mallet, but don’t get carried away pounding them like I did and end up with a mess.
Next, melt the candy melts in the microwave or on the stove. Usually I melt them in the microwave at 50% for 30 seconds at a time, stirring until they are fully melted.
Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and pour the candy melt over it, spreading it around with a spatula or spoon. Sprinkle on the crushed Oreos, M&M’s, and sprinkles.
Now for the hard part…the waiting. Pop the baking sheet into the fridge for about 10-15 minutes so the candy melt sets. Once it has hardened, break it into pieces for eating! Yum!
This would be a fun “baking” project to make with the kids – simple ingredients and easy clean-up. And the end result is delicious! I plan on making a batch to take to our Easter dinner. I also like how it can be made for any holiday or season since M&M’s always have different colors and flavors available.
Here are a few more yummy recipes using M&M’s and Oreos.
