This crowd pleasing, super-simple bark with crushed Oreos and white chocolate is so ridiculously easy, you'll almost feel guilty when you're showered with praise an undying love by those who devour them.
1 18-ouncepackage Oreo cookiesabout 40 cookies
2bagsabout 4 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (I use Ghiradelli chips)
Line a 13'' x 9'' pan with parchment paper, and spray with a little non-stick cooking spray.
Place Oreos in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and give them several good whacks with a rolling pin until each cookie is broken up. Alternately, you can place them in a large bowl and break them up with a wooden spoon.
Put the white chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl and add the shortening. Cook for 30 seconds on half power, removing to stir. Cook in 15-second increments on half-power, stirring each time, just until the chips have mostly melted. Remove from microwave and stir until the chips are all the way melted. This took me about 2 minutes total time, but microwaves vary, and you don't want to overcook the chips.
Add the broken-up Oreo cookies to the melted white chocolate chip mixture. Mix well, then spread as evenly as possible into the 13'' x 9'' pan.
Allow to harden. This might take a couple of hours at room temperature, or you can place the bark in the fridge to speed up the process.
When completely hard, remove bark from the pan and carefully peel off the parchment paper. With a sharp knife, cut in to pieces. The pieces will likely be imperfect and you'll end up with some crumbs; save them to sprinkle over ice cream.
