OREO PEPPERMINT BARK


~ A Southern Fairytale

1 c. milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 Oreos, chopped
1 1/2 c. white chocolate chips
10 mini candy canes, crushed (about 1/2 cup)

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Heat chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each increment, until melted and smooth. Pour onto wax paper  and spread flat. Sprinkle with crushed Oreos. Chill for 10 minutes. 

Heat white chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each increment, until melted and smooth. Pour over Oreos and spread to edges of milk chocolate. Sprinkle with chopped candy canes. Chill until set. Break into pieces and serve or package.

Notes: I heat the two batches of chocolate chips on the stovetop instead of using the microwave. The chilled bark crumbles when I try to break it, but cutting it in irregular pieces with a knife works better. The friend who shared the recipe with me says she just lets it sit out to harden at room temp overnight instead of chilling it, but I haven't tried it that way yet.
