Chocolate Cookie Candy Pretzel Bark

An easy and decadent Chocolate Cookie Candy Pretzel Bark recipe - perfect for a summer party!

This Chocolate Cookie Candy Pretzel Bark is another recipe that we made over Memorial Day to rave reviews!

As you can tell by the name – it’s a decadent combination of cookies (we used Oreos) and pretzel sticks smothered in melted white chocolate, then topped with candy-coated chocolates and some patriotic sprinkles for color and decoration – as well as added sweetness!

We brought a batch of this chocolate cookie candy pretzel bark to our neighbor’s Memorial Day weekend barbeque.  I knew it was a winner – first – when one of the guys at the party (don’t worry, I won’t name names!) kept sneaking into the dining room and eating a piece of this bark while everyone else was still eating lunch!   Then, when the desserts were finally served, all of the kids ended up fighting over who got the last piece of this fabulous treat!!

This is a delicious salty-sweet (mostly sweet!) dessert that will please both grown-ups and kids alike!  It’s so good – we’re already planning to make this chocolate cookie candy pretzel bark again for our July 4th celebrations!

This recipe was adapted from one that appeared here (who adapted the original recipe here).  I, for the life of me, couldn’t find red, white and blue M&M’s at the store (and didn’t have time to mail away for them), but luckily I was able to find similar candy-coated chocolates at our local party store.  Other types of candies, as well as other types of chocolates or cookies can easily be substituted based on your personal preferences.

Chocolate Cookie Candy Pretzel Bark
 
Serves: 24-36 pieces
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
 
Ingredients
  • 14 whole Oreo cookies, broken up into quarters
  • 1 ½ cups pretzel sticks, broken into pieces
  • 1 pound white chocolate candy melts (such as Wilton White Candy Melts)
  • 1 cup Red, White, and Blue M&M's or other candy-coated chocolate candies
  • Colored sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Cover a large cookie sheet with a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat or a large piece of wax paper.
  2. Spread the cookie and pretzel pieces evenly onto the mat or wax paper.
  3. Melt the white chocolate – either in the microwave* or over a double boiler – until smooth and fully melted. (*Anytime you melt chocolate in the microwave, it’s best to heat the chocolate in 30-second time increments, then stop to stir the chocolate before heating it more. Chocolate melts very quickly in the microwave and it can easily burn!)
  4. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie-pretzel mixture, making sure it evenly coats the cookie and pretzel pieces. If necessary, use a spatula to evenly spread the melted chocolate.
  5. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the candy pieces and sprinkles evenly over the chocolate, pushing the candy down a bit if necessary to make sure that it is embedded in the melted chocolate.
  6. Let cool until the chocolate firms up. Peel the bark from the Silpat mat or wax paper and break into small pieces.
  7. Store in an air tight container.

  3. I saw this on a 4th of July roundup and just had to pin it. I hope you’ll share your best post of the week on my Friday Flash Blog Linky Party going on ALL weekend at The Jenny Evolution.

  4. I just came across this via pinterest… LOVE the idea! I have dessert duty for a 4th of July party Saturday and think this will be perfect! Did you lay out the oreos and pretzels mixed together or flat out? I mean are the pieces you break off a little bit of oreo and pretzel? Does that make sense? I cook mostly meals and rarely do desserts so I want to make it right.

  5. Oh and where do you get the chocolate melts?

    • Hi Kait!! You can get the candy melts at Walmart or Michael’s! And yes once you’ve broken up the oreos and pretzels just spread the all randomly and mixed together on the sheet so that every bite gets a little taste of each ingredient! Hope that helps! Thanks for visiting our site!

  6. Just bought red, white and blue M&M’s at Kmart this morning!

  7. This will be perfect for those 4th of July parties! And as I can melt the chocolate in the microwave, I won’t need to turn my stove on!! Another plus in this heat wave we’ve been having. I can’t wait to make these.
