Here's what you do: Microwave almond bark, white baking chips, or white chocolate with a little bit of coconut oil until you can pour it into a puddle on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Then add crushed Oreos, crushed pretzels, chopped toasted almonds, festive sprinkles, and chill. That’s it!

How To Make This Fun Candy For July 4th

The white candy base ingredients are interchangeable in this recipe. You can use white almond bark or white baking chips. Either one is a chocolate-like confection made with vegetable fats instead of cocoa butter and with coloring and flavors added.

If you check the labels on both products, you will see they are essentially the same thing. White baking chips are far faster and easier to melt than almond bark, so I always pick the easy way!

I almost always have inexpensive white baking chips in the cupboard because they are an amazing addition to cookies of nearly every kind (try them in oatmeal cookies!) I always use them in my super Easy Cake Mix Lemon Bars for the creamy texture they add!

Of course, you can also use white baking chocolate if it’s real chocolate you crave. Here’s solid information from America’s Test Kitchen about which to use and why.

Here’s What You'll Need To For This Yummy Candy

I had no idea that Oreos have so many varieties or such a robust website! I was amazed! I became intrigued when I made an Oreo Dirt Cake earlier in the week!

I had forgotten just how good Oreo cookies are, so I looked for more inspiration. I found this fun idea for Oreo candy on the Oreo website.

I was amazed at how many recipes I found using America’s number one cookie! Wikipedia has this to say about Oreos: "Oreo is a brand of sandwich cookie consisting of two chocolate biscuits or cookie pieces with a sweet creme filling."

The iconic cookie was introduced by Nabisco on March 6, 1912, over a century ago! Today, Oreo cookies are available in over one hundred countries and are still the best-selling cookie in the world!

Here's a little-known fact about Oreos: they are a copycat cookie! If you'd like to know more, here's the back story of Oreo's origins!

How To Make Oreo Candy Bark

Prepare the toppings and have them ready to sprinkle on before the chips cool and set. Crush the Oreos and the pretzels into small pieces. Chop the almonds coarsely, and if you like, toast them in the microwave for a minute and a half in thirty-second increments, stirring in between.

I used my trusty Pampered Chef Batter Bowl to melt the white baking chips. It works great in the microwave and has a convenient pouring spout! I used one bag of white baking chips for my recipe for the base. The package says the bag contains about two cups. I added about a teaspoon of coconut oil to help them melt better.

Ready Set Go Let’s Make This Fun Oreo Candy

Cover a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and melt the baking chips in the microwave. Melt them in thirty-second bursts, stirring in between, until it’s pourable.

Pour the melted chips onto the parchment paper and use a spoon to spread it out to about 1/4 of an inch thick. Working quickly, sprinkle the toppings on the soft candy base and gently press them into place.

Finally, melt one cup of the chips and drizzle it over the top, adding more toppings and sprinkles if you like. This will help “glue” the toppings in place. All that’s left to do is refrigerate the candy until it is firm and break it into pieces to serve.

Keep the Oreo bark in a tightly sealed container; if it’s not all gone within two weeks, you can freeze it for up to six months!
