I found this recipe on Your Homebased Mom, but I think the original post was found on Recipe Girl. I made it last year and it was such a hit that I decided to whip up another batch this weekend. The candy bark is super easy to make and so yummy. I love that it doesn’t take much fuss to make it look good. This is a great treat to give send to school for a class party, give as a little teacher treat, bag up and hand-out to those special kids in your life or just keep it for your own family to enjoy!
CANDY CORN COOKIE BARK
- 14 whole Oreos, broken up
- 1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
- 1 lb. white chocolate melting discs (I used about 1 1/2 pounds for mine)
- 1 C candy corn
- brown and orange colored sprinkles, Halloween edible sequins or coloured sugar (Bulk Barn has a great selection.)
- Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper
- Mix the broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 C of the candy corn in a bowl
- Spread the candy mixture onto the waxed paper
- Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes
- Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth
- White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate
- Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula to coat evenly
- Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the chocolate quickly before it sets
- Place the cookie tray in the refrigerator until set and firm
- Remove and gently break bark into small pieces
- Store in air tight container or place in cellophane bags if you wish to share!
One thing I notice is that if you spread your candy mixture out too much, you will not have enough chocolate to cover the base. If you look at the difference between Leigh Anne’s and mine, you will notice that her’s seems to have a thicker chocolate coating over the top of her candy corn cookie bark than mine does. I think the key is not spreading it out so much that your chocolate will not cover the crumbs adequately.
