This Christmas Bark recipe is filled with so many delicious sweets. White chocolate bark mixed with peppermint chips, Oreos, M&Ms, and pretzels makes the perfect treat for the holidays, and it's so fun to make. This Oreo Peppermint Bark makes a great homemade gift too, and it's perfect for parties!
Print Recipe



  • Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. (I didn't have any wax paper, so I used parchment paper and lightly sprayed it with cooking spray. I recommend wax paper but this will work if you're in a jam)
  • Spread broken cookies, pretzels, peppermint chips, and about 3/4 of the M&M's onto the baking sheet.
  • Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on medium power. Stir and then microwave for another minute until melted and smooth. Watch it carefully to make sure it doesn't burn
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the cookie/candy mixture, spreading with a spatula if needed to coat completely.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the M&M's and red and green sprinkles over the still-wet chocolate. This wont work if it has hardened.
  • Chill the tray of bark until set and firm--about an hour. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces.


Note: In the spirit of transparency, I want to note that some of these ingredients are trademarked products. Oreos, M&M's, Andes Mints, and Ghirardelli Chocolates are proprietary brands that I want to acknowledge and give credit to.
