How fun is this for Halloween? And I'd never even heard of Candy Corn Oreos. (I found them at Target. Where else?) Not being much of a candy maker, let alone eater, I was in the mood to find something candy-ish for a Halloween post this year. The bark looked funky and fun, so I'm passing it out to some of my more mature (ahem) trick and treaters. Honestly, I didn't think I'd like it because I really don't care much for white chocolate, but I was wrong. It's totally addictive. Bad, bad bad.
Wrap it up in cellophane with some black and orange ribbon and you're all set. Big or little kids, doesn't matter. We're all kids at Halloween.
Candy Corn Oreo Bark
From Jamie at My Baking Addition
Yield: 20 pieces
10 Candy Corn Oreos, chopped
1/2 cup small pretzel stick pieces
1/2 cup salted peanuts
12 ounces white chocolate, chopped (Use three 4-ounce Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bars)3/4 cup candy corn
Line an 8×8 baking sheet with parchment paper. (I used a 9" square baking pan.)
Spread the cookies, pretzels and peanuts into the bottom of prepared pan.
Melt chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave at 50% power, stirring frequently until almost melted. Remove from the heat while there are still a few pieces of unmelted chocolate; stir until smooth.
Drizzle chocolate with a spoon over the goodies in the pan, spreading the top flat to coat evenly. (You have to poke it around a bit to make certain all the little pieces get some white chocolate on them.)
Top with candy corn and sprinkles. Let cool until firm. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
