Is my birthday! Hooray for 27 and getting older (ha…right…)
This is me 20 years ago on my 7th birthday. Apparently 7 year old Nicole doesn’t remember to look at the camera when someone is taking a picture – this is still a problem I have today so not much has changed . But heck was I cute in that little flowered jumper. It sure doesn’t feel like it was 20 years ago!
In honor of my Oreo’s Birthday they came out with these delicious birthday cake Oreos.
They taste like sunshine on a cloudy day!
But they really do taste kinda like cake – and that got me thinking of what I could make with these little gems. I had all sorts of ideas (cuz really, what can’t you do with an Oreo..) but I decided on making some Oreo bark.
This isn’t just ordinary Oreo bark either – its got cake mix stirred into the white chocolate and is topped with birthday cake Oreos and fun colored sprinkles. And it’s really delicious :) I urge you to snatch up a package of these special edition Oreos and make a batch of this bark. You won’t be disappointed!
- 12 oz. milk chocolate
- 12 oz. white chocolate
- 3 tablespoons yellow cake mix
- 10-12 Birthday Cake Oreos, crushed
- Multi-colored sprinkles
- Line a rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
- In a double boiler or microwave melt the milk chocolate. Pour melted chocolate onto the parchment paper and spread evenly. Place baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate in the double broiler or microwave. Once white chocolate is melted, stir in the cake mix. Stir until well combined. If chocolate appears to be too thick, melt 1 tablespoon of Crisco in the microwave, then gently stir the melted Crisco into the chocolate to thin it out (Do not use water or anything else to thin out chocolate).
- Remove baking sheet from the freezer and pour the melted white chocolate over the milk chocolate, spreading with a spatula to cover the entire area of milk chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies and sprinkles. Put into the freezer to set for 15 minutes.
- Remove from freezer and break apart or chop into triangles. Store in the refrigerator.
