Is there anything more cozy that blogging on the laptop next to the fire in the kitchen, watching the cold, gray drizzle and ..uhh..listening to the kids argue over the breakfast dishes?
Texas is such an odd climate. I spent the first 12 years of my life in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and I always have a hard time associating this weather with Christmas! It was 80 degrees three days ago..then we had some snow flurries..then it was in the 60′s and now, today, it is in the 30′s again. I miss the Currier and Ives Christmases of the North East!
Today, at my house, we are going to make cookies and cream bark. It is easy, delicious, and makes an awesome gift. The kids have a great time doing it too! Give it a try and see what you think. It may well become a yearly tradition.
Mint Oreo Bark
- 2 lbs white chocolate
- 1 half package mint oreos, cut in pieces. Use more if you like.
- Spray a large cookie sheet or casserole pan with PAM or any cooking spray. Line it with waxed paper. Spray waxed paper with more spray.
- Melt 2 lbs of white chocolate and spread over the waxed paper.
- Quickly sprinkle chopped oreos over the top and press in carefully.
- Allow to set in the fridge. Remove and break into pieces.
- You can, at this point, melt milk chocolate and spread it on a prepared cookie sheet and lay the cookies and cream bark on it for a second layer of chocolate.
You can use nearly anything in place of the oreos:
regular oreos, m & m’s, peppermints, macadamia nuts, etc.
