Chocolate Cookie Bark

I love chocolate. Chocolate is simply the best food in the world, and this Bark just enhances my love. My Good friend "Ish" made this first, and once I tried it I was completely inspired. I had to make it! Not only is it delicious, it is pretty too! I think the swirls of chocolate look really cool. I have to say that the best part of this is that it is super simple to make! I seriously made it in 10 min! So the first thing you do is get your chocolate.
Then you melt the White chocolate, then Semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave for about a min or two at power 5.Then you take a bunch of Oreos and chop them up.Ok, so do you like peanut butter or Nutella? Ish doesn't like Peanut butter, so she used Nutella. I like both so I then divided my white chocolate into two bowls. I added a tablespoon of peanut butter to one bowl, and a tablespoon of nutella to the other. Then I added half the Oreos to the Semi-sweet chocolate. Then I split the rest and added it each bowl of white chocolate. Take a baking sheet and cover it with parchment paper. Drop blobs of the chocolate mixture next to each other.You can see that the chocolate to the left, that is the most white is made with the addition of peanut butter. On the right is the Nutella. Take a knife, and swirl the chocolate together.Pop it in the fridge and wait till hardened. Break into pieces.
Store in an airtight container. I wouldn't know how long it will last because mine were gone long before I had to worry about it!Enjoy.

This looks so cool! Love how one minute, it's blobs on wax paper, and the next it's beautiful marble. It looks like it would make a fantastic gift. I'm definitely in the Nutella corner, though! Mmmm.... :)

Oh man, you're killing me. These look insane! I like the inclusion of peanut butter! I made dark chocolate cookie bark for my sister this past Christmas using the mini Oreos broken in half.

Even better, however, was what I made for my Dad. I made a dark chocolate gingersnap bark. I broke up store bought gingersnaps and coated them in dark chocolate. What really made them special though, was to sprinkle sea salt on top before the chocolate cools, it adds a wonderful flavor! That was by far the best bark I have ever had.
