Ingredients

-One pound of chocolate (Look for bars, not chocolate chips)

-Pretzels

-White chocolate chips

-OREO cookies with festive-colored creme

–M&M's in a fun color

Other supplies:

-Cookie sheet

-Parchment paper

-Microwave Safe Bowl

-Spatula

Step One

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then start snapping pretzels into small pieces. Try not to pulverize them! Then take 8-10 OREO cookies and cut into quarters. Don't worry if they don't cut cleanly, it's ok if they crumble! Just be sure to evenly scatter both the pretzels and the cookies on the baking sheet.

 

Step Two

Break chocolate into smallish pieces and place in microwave-safe bowl.

Step Three

Microwave for 45 seconds, then remove and stir. Continue microwaving in 30 second intervals, and stirring until the chocolate is completely smooth.

Step Four

Pour chocolate over pretzel and OREO pieces, coating in an even layer so everything is smothered in delicious chocolate.

Step Five

This is the fun part! Grab the kids and start sprinkling the chocolate with M&M's and white chocolate chips.

Step Six

Place your baking sheet in the refrigerator for about an hour, or until the chocolate has cooled and hardened. 

Step Seven

Once your bark is completely solidified, carefully cut into smaller pieces with a sharp knife. Keep portioned bark in the fridge until you're read to enjoy!
