Hello, glorious Nerdship! I hope the snow is melting at your house. We got quite the glorious reprieve recently. The snow melted and we got nearly 2 weeks of light jacket to short sleeve weather. I will quit bragging now, before you all start pelting me with rotten produce.
Anyway, I am a lover of junk food. I will go for weeks with none in the house, then BAM! ALL THE THINGS. I do my best to meter it out and give it to friends, so I don’t get crazy. I bought some Oreos a few weeks ago, and rather than eating the whole package, I decided to make some bark for you fine folks.
Cast of characters: small sheet pan, sheet of wax paper, 4 oz each of white and bittersweet baking chocolates, Oreos. Not pictured: microwave safe bowls, spoons.
- Start by unwrapping the chocolates. Break the bars up into small pieces and place in separate bowls.
- Break up your Oreoes. I used between a third and half of the package. Place cookie pieces on your wax papered sheet pan.
- Microwave the chocolate in 30 second bursts, until melty.
- Stir until smooth and glossy.
- Pour chocolates over the cookie pieces. Use a scraper to get all the chocolate out of the bowl, and also to better combine the cookies and chocolate on the pan. Once cookies and chocolate are good friends, go ahead and pop the pan into the fridge to set.
- Once cooled and set completely, break the sheet of chocolate cookie goodness into pieces.
Do your best to not eat it all while you set up a picture.
You can do this with pretty much any crunchy food (imagine caramel popcorn or pretzels…. *Homer Simpson drool face*). 10 minutes and you look like a hero of snack time. Hop to it! Then send us a picture or a tweet of your creation so we can drool along with you!
