white chocolate bark w/ Oreo's and Cheez Its

white chocolate bark w Oreo's & Cheez Its

Let's call this PMS Christmas bark shall we? :-)
Whoa. I mean whoa dude. This stuff is crazy good. Very addicting. I have a bunch of leftovers at my house. Please come get it? It's free to a good home?
I swear I can hear you all now saying "where in the world does this crazy woman come up with this stuff?" My cravings for sweet & salty run high and deep. I am on a never-ending quest to find the ultimate in sweet & savory.
For those foodies in your life (or you) make them a batch of this for Chrismtas. They will swoon.....they will remember you forever and a day.

print recipe

2 bags or 22 ounces of high quality white chocolate
About 10-12 Oreo's (chocolate filled) cookies cut in half or quarters
2 large handfuls of Cheez It’s cut in half or quarters
2 TB or more of heavy cream
Generous pinch of sea salt

Have all your ingredients chopped up and ready to go as white chocolate does not stay melted long. Place parchment paper on a regular cookie sheet.
Over double boiler melt the white chocolate chips with the heavy cream, add in the salt, stirring a lot until it comes to a nice Ganache. Take off the heat, working fast add in the chopped Oreo’s and cheez its. Mix well and fast, then pour out onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Let harden about 3 hours. Cut into squares.

  24. Whoa is right! You melted down two clashing snacks into a white chocolate bark and it's actually good? I believe you but I am amazed. This sounds like something that would happen accidentally or come together when you're feeling really, really brave.
    Bravo!

  25. Are you kidding me? I think I have to make this pronto. I have loads of white chocolate but no oreos or cheez-its. I see a grocery store run in my near future.

  49. Um, MUST try this! I think I'll make it with white cheddar Cheese-It's though because the orangey color in your pics freaks me out a little.

    ReplyDelete
  50. This looks so strange that all I can think is that it must be fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sorry must leave another comment. Made this for Christmas. My 94 year old grandmother could not get enough of it. She kept asking what the orange pieces were. She's hard of hearing and we kept saying "Cheese It's". She's study her piece and then shake her head. She couldn't believe it. A new one to add to the cookie tray.

  52. this might be the coolest thing ever...

    ReplyDelete
  53. omg get out of here with this. YUM. I wonder how chocolate and potato chips would be...hmmm...www.hardlyhousewives.com.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm going to pretend that I'm making this to include in my assortment of homemade candy that I'm giving out, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll end up eating it all myself.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Here you go again. And I just got done reading an article about how people who lose weight gain it all back, too! This looks seriously dangerous to my waistline. Nice work. :D

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just tried making this, but it was a disaster because the white chocolate chips would not melt into a smooth creamy texture. Instead they melted into a grainy, mealy mass that was very difficult to work with. I decided to use it anyways and am waiting for it to cool right now, but I'm wondering, what did I do wrong in terms of melting the chocolate? I used Ghirardelli white chocolate chips on a double broiler. I didn't have cream on hand so I used 2% milk. I would love your input on this.

  57. Liz:

    sorry that happened. sounds exactly like you melted the white chocolate way too fast over a high heat OR too long. could it be the water was too hot? or maybe you didn't stir it enough while melting? I've had white chocolate seize right up on me if i walked away or heated it too long. Also, adding the cream to the chips before they melt will help it melt better too. If you add the cream in after the chocolate is melted it will seize right up. hope this helps you?
