I recently realised how much I like to cook and I decided to make an online collection of recipes I've collected and tried. These are all pretty easy, and I have made many of them while watching a toddler, or at least during nap time.

Peppermint Oreo bark

This treat is named 'Peppermint Oreo Bark' for 2 reasons: it looks like an Oreo and has a peppermint flavour and it contains Cool Mint Creme Doublestuf Oreos.

Here's what you'll need:
16 oz (1pkg) chocolate flavoured Candiquik/bark/dipping chocolate
12 oz (12 squares, or 3/4 pkg) white chocolate Candiquik &tc.
1/2 c crushed candy canes/starlight mints
8 crushed Mint Oreos
Peppermint oil (don't use water based flavourings!)

This recipe should fill a 9x13 pan (I used a 9 inch cake pan for about a third of this amount and it didn't quite fill it) . A cookie sheet will also work

Line the pan with wax paper

Melt half the chocolate according to the directions (just use a microwave!)
Mix in half the crushed Oreos, spead in a thin layer on the pan. Place in fridge until hardened (5-10 min)
Melt the white chocolate, stir in crushed candy canes, and a few drops of peppermint oil (a chopstick works well to catch a single drop at a time) and spread directly over the chocolate. Place in fridge until hardedned. Melt the remaining chocolate, mix in oreos, and spread across the white chocolate. Place in fridge till hardened, the break apart into small pieces.
