Cookies ‘N Cream Birthday Bark

Oops. I did it again…another birthday dessert. I promise this isn’t a birthday blog! Lately, it just seems like one of my friends has a birthday each week. But another birthday means another excuse for a new dessert. I won’t say no to that!

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve made a trip to the grocery store, so I had to make do with what I had on hand. Somehow, I mustered up dark chocolate, white chocolate, oreos, cake mix and rainbow sprinkles. It did the trick! Within 30 minutes, I whipped up a new favorite “bark” dessert This is a spin off of the cake batter bark I made a few weeks ago, and it’s even more decadent. What do you get when you add two layers of oreos, and double the cake mix? DOUBLE COOKIES ’N CREAM CAKE BATTER BARK. Good thing I had a ribbon on hand…I had to tie the package shut to stop snacking. Get this stuff out of my apartment…it’s addicting!

4) Remove baking sheet with chocolate from the freezer and immediately pour the white chocolate on top. Sprinkle on remaining oreos, and then the sprinkles. Freeze for another 15-20 minutes.

5) Once set, break into chunks. Keep refrigerated, and if these are a gift, consider taping the container shut.

happy birthday :)

The best part about making this dessert (besides the end result of course), is the minimal cleanup. I used 1 bowl, 1 spatula, and a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet wasn’t even dirty. Parchment paper is a blessing!

What’s your favorite birthday dessert?
