About This Recipe

Bark, in food, refers to a combination of chocolate and other ingredients melted together and spread into a thin layer. The candy is then broken into pieces and devoured. This recipe for Cookie Bark is one of the best and so, so easy!

You can make chocolate bark out of just about anything, but this simple two ingredient recipe tastes like something from an expensive bakery. I like my bark to be made with milk chocolate, but you can use any type of chocolate you prefer.

And I prefer using Guittard milk chocolate chips. Those chips are big and luscious and melt beautifully into a velvety and smooth puddle.

Any cookie would be delicious in this recipe, but for the ultimate Cookie Bark, use my Browned Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. You could use store bought cookies, of course (try Oreos or shortbread cookies or Mint Milanos), and this recipe is still incredible.

Keep this recipe in mind when you have a chocolate craving and eating a handful of chocolate chips just won’t do! In about 30 minutes (if you use the fridge to set the candy) you will be biting into one of the best recipes ever. Ever.

Tips for best results:

  • It’s really hard to mess up this recipe. I would think the only way would be to overheat the chocolate chips or to get some liquid into the chips. Chocolate will seize (trust me, this doesn’t need a description: you will know if it happens) if any liquid gets into it as it’s melting. So guard against that.
  • Watch the chips carefully in the microwave, because they can burn fairly easily, especially if you have a powerful appliance.

Why this recipe works:

  • The recipe couldn’t be simpler, but there are some things to avoid.
  • Never melt chocolate with a little amount of butter. The butter contains water, which will make the chocolate seize. See above.
  • The combination of crunchy and flavorful cookie with smooth and rich melted chocolate is sublime. The contrast in flavor and texture is what makes the recipe.

Steps

1
Done

Put the milk chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate on medium power for 1 minute, then remove and stir gently. Continue microwaving the chips for 30 second intervals on medium power, taking the bowl out of the microwave and stirring after each interval, until the chocolate is melted.

2
Done

Stir in the cookie pieces until combined.

3
Done

Spread parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the paper and spread into an even layer. Let stand until cool, then break into pieces. If you really want to eat this fast, put the bark into the fridge for about 15 minutes. Then devour!
