Peanut Butter Oreo Chocolate Bark

I’m currently writing to you knee deep in chocolate covered creamy peanut butter Oreo mania right now. Do NOT send help. I’ll find my way out. Reese’s Peanut Butter White Chocolate Bark’s darker twin sister is ready to be shared with the world. Warning: this stuff is messy, addicting, and indulgent – in every wonderful way.

I love making chocolate bark. It’s a mindless, no-bake way to add anything you want to chocolate. All the little do-dads hiding in your pantry. Chocolate bark is a kiss from heaven when you have some holiday treats to make without all the time in the world. Or when you just need a chocolate break – and you need it fast.

Peanut Butter Oreo Chocolate Bark

I personally love (read: loooove) peanut butter and Oreos together. I know I’m not the only one who spreads peanut butter on top of Oreos. The combination of peanut butter and Oreos is what dreams are made of and you’re getting a whole lot of both in today’s recipe.

While bark is typically made free-form on a baking sheet or sheet pan, I made this bark in a 9×9 square pan so that the Oreo crust could compact together easily. It does take some time to chill and set – about 2 hours all together. The crust is a simple 2 ingredient mixture of melted butter and Oreo crumbs. 24 Double Stuf Oreos pulverized into crumbly oblivion. It is the exact same recipe (both ingredients and quantity) I used for my Skinny Peanut Butter Pie.

But there is absolutely nothing skinny about today’s recipe.

The bark is messy! Crumbly crust, creamy & sticky peanut butter, stiff chocolate – which is why this is a “bark” recipe and not a “bar” recipe. Uneven edges, misshapen pieces, small, large. Anything goes here! I broke up the bark with a knife and then used my hands to break smaller pieces. Have fun when you break it up and don’t afraid to get a little messy.

It’s important to keep the bark chilled when you are storing it so the layers stick together. I’ve been loving snagging small pieces here and there, freshly chilled in the refrigerator. Can someone take this bark away from me? No don’t. But please do. Wait, I can’t stop eating it.

 

Peanut Butter Oreo Chocolate Bark

This no-bake dessert is a chocolate and peanut butter lover's dream! Layers of crush oreo, creamy peanut butter filling, and rich chocolate.

Ingredients:

Bottom Layer

  • 24 whole Oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Topping

  • 5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, like Bakers or Ghirardelli brands

Directions:

  1. Line an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with parchment paper, with overlay on the sides. Spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Make the Oreo cookie crust by crushing the Oreos into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. Mix the crushed Oreo crumbs and melted butter together in a large bowl. It may look like there is not enough butter, but it will come together. Place into the prepared baking pan, pressing the crumbs down into the pan to create a somewhat even layer.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a handheld mixer, mix the peanut butter, butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and salt until the mixture is completely combined and smooth. Spread over the crumb mixture, smoothing the top with an offset or rubber spatula (sprayed with nonstick spray, for ease). Chill the bars for at least an hour, until the filling is set.
  4. Melt the chocolate in medium microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 15 seconds. Or use a double boiler. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter filling and evenly spread. Chill the bars in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until the chocolate topping has set. Remove bark from the baking pan using the parchment paper and cut into uneven pieces (or use your hands to break it up).
  5. Store bark in the refrigerator.

  1. Are you even kidding me with this?! This might be the best bark recipe I have ever seen!

  2. This bark has everything I love. You know I love Oreos and PB… http://backforsecondsblog.com/2012/05/trouble-on-a-plate-oreo-style/
    It’s addictive stuff. Diet food, lol. A chocolate peanut butter diet sounds perfect to me! Bark is on my must make soon list. This one looks perfect!

    • i dont think i’ve ever seen that recipe – thank you for linking up! wow. 😉 and yes, you must make bark soon! can’t wait to see what you come up with. 😉

  3. I’m sorry, I don’t even really know what just happened. You lost me the second I saw peanut butter on top of an oreo crust. I’ll be back when I’ve swam out of my drool puddle….

  4. I love the free-form shape of these! How perfect for setting out to share with a crowd. Can you believe I’ve never put peanut butter on an oreo? I’ve got to try that stat.

  5. Oreos, PB filling, top coating of chocolate- and no bake. You cannot go wrong, Sally! Sounds perfect, especially when you need something fast to make with delish results!

    By the way I noticed that your favicon is new. Blue background w/ a cupcake. I have a random glitch with mine and sometimes it shows up with a blogger/blogspot one I had like 3 yrs ago and sometimes it’s my current logo. Weird. But I noticed yours right away!

    • good eye averie! yes, that’s new. Cory did that last night – I just always thought sites with favicons were cooler than mine. I didn’t even know what they were called until 10 hours ago. that’s weird about yours! I always always always see the pink circle/heart.

  6. Let me see. A sweet, calorific, OMG chunk of heavenly chocolate & peanut butter?

    I’m thinking FABULOUS!

  7. This would make an awesome holiday gift or something to bring to a party! Or… something to eat all by yourself. 😉 PS, just noticed your cute little cupcake icon in my web browser tab, I love it!

  8. This is clearly an addiction waiting to happen! Aaaaaah!
    😀

  9. Holy moly. My husband would go crazy for this! Okay, fine, I’m going crazy for it too. Tummy, growling.

  10. I am perfectly okay with the lack of healthy going on here O:-)

  11. Stopppp it. Looks deliciously messy Sally! I like.

  12. Oh my, this looks just heavenly! And I love that it’s not “skinny” – sometimes we all need a truly decadent treat, especially around the holidays! =)

  13. Ok, confession: my go-to snack my freshman year of college was Oreos dipped in peanut butter. Can we say freshman 15? Ha, but seriously, there isn’t anything much better. LOVE these bars. Easy, rich, and full of chocolate and peanut butter. Can’t ask for much more!

  14. This is now the THIRD recipe of yours that is going on my Christmas 2012 baking list. I need to stop visiting your blog. I feel fatter each time I do . . . where did I put my maternity pants . . . ? : )

  15. OH.MY.WORD!!!! This is seriously amazing stuff right here. I puffy heart love peanut butter and oreo together! You have outdone yourself with this simple easy AWESOME recipe!!! I must have some of this for sure:-)

  16. um…so….um.

    well…

    there are no words. Just drool. And hunger. And the desire to grab through the screen to shovel those things into my mouth ASAP.

    I love oreos & peanut butter together *sigh*

  17. OH. MY. WORD. Sally, you are incredible! Look how delightfully fat these pieces of sinful bark are! Loaded with all that creamy, thick peanut butter filling and those buttery crumbs of chocolatey goodness… I don’t even bat an eye at chocolate usually, but this I am alllllll over.

  18. OMG, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven, and I haven’t even made these (Cookies ‘n’ Cream Peanut Butter Bark) yet!
    I’m going to have to change the name of my foodie pinboard from “Food I Lust After” to “Sally’s Baking Addiction Goodies”!!!!!
    Can’t wait to do these –and they even look easy!

  19. Chocolate and peanut butter together? I could eat this ALL day! Although I’d have to throw in some of your Reese’s Peanut Butter White Chocolate Bark to mix it up 🙂 YUM!

  20. Holy moly Sally. This bark is genius. I LOVE the combination of oreos and peanut butter. I need to make this immediately (no really, I think I need to leave work early to go make some.. if only lol).

  21. You’re blowing my mind Sally! Double stuff Oreos…seriously, a girl after my own heart. These look incredible, I want to eat my computer screen.

  22. All your recipes look AMAZING and to die for!!

  23. I’m afraid to make this because i know my hubby and I would fight over it! We tend to do that with chocolate and peanut butter desserts 🙂

  24. Yum yum yum yum. Yum 🙂 This looks so good! You know me, anything with peanut butter & chocolate is a winner!

  25. Girrrrrrrrl, I’ve been staring at your pictures for the last 5 minutes in a sugar coma. Drooling is acceptable when you’re home alone, yes? 🙂

  26. The Oreo + PB combination is seriously to die for. This looks like pure heaven, definitely a step up from a smear of PB on top of an Oreo!

    • kinda like a peanut butter smeared Oreo, but kinda not. takes that little indulgence to a whole other level, thanks miss Meghan 🙂

  27. I’m always in need of a chocolate break so this here is a must! I thank you in advance for eating too much of this and gaining some holiday wait 🙂

  28. I love the texture of these. That bottom layer is screaming my name!
