Oreo Halloween Bark

I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it looked so fun. Little did I know how addictive it is too! You can modify the Oreos and candy used by season too (ie: Christmas – use green mint Oreos and candy cane pieces with red and green sprinkles)

1 bag Oreos, broken up into quarters (use Halloween Oreos if you can find them)
2 cups pretzels – any shape, broken into pieces
24 ounce bag of almond bark (vanilla or chocolate)
1 cup candy corn
Black and orange colored sprinkles

Instructions:
Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 cup of the candy corn onto the prepared cookie sheet in a 9×13 shape. Place almond bark in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth.

Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly. It may seem like it’s not enough but just try to evenly spread it. Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the almond bark while it is still wet. Do not let it harden before adding the toppings. Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces. Store in air tight container. Recipe modified from the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

This year I tried something new and used the chocolate Almond Bark. Awesome!

I’ve had a few people ask about the Almond Bark. It’s a vanilla candy coating that is pretty easy to work with. I get it at Walmart in the baking section. I’ll include a photo below!

    • Hi Rachel, you absolutely can sub the almond bark with a nut free alternative. We have very dear friends who used Bakers chocolate for their nut free Oreo bark. Just look in the baking chocolate section of your grocery store. Good luck! 🙂

    • Hi Heather! Not a silly question at all! Almond Bark is basically a vanilla flavored candy coating… Does not actually have almonds in it (though it does contain Soy and Milk if there is an allergy concern) I guess you just use it for bark so that’s how it got the name? I personally find it a lot easier to work with than chocolate as chocolate can be pretty temperamental. You can absolutely use Bakers chocolate and I have used the semi-sweet and white chocolate in the past. Good luck! 🙂

  2. I’m late to the party and just seeing this but will make it NOW!! This is a bit different than most bark recipes I’ve seen cause you pour the bark on TOP of the goodies, not make the chocolate and then put the goodies on. Interesting!!!
