Vanilla Almond Bark Oreo's


Vanilla Almond Bark Oreo's
 
We will begin our Holiday Market at Dothan Nurseries this Friday.  In addition to my jellies, I will be selling these cute bags of delicious Vanilla Almond Bark Oreo's.  During the holiday season, there are numerous food items that are quite good dipped in Vanilla Almond Bark.  To name a few, pretzels, ritz crackers with peanut butter, and double stuffed oreo's. 
 
For Vanilla Almond Bark Oreo's, you will only need a package or family size box of Double Stuffed Oreo's and a package of Vanilla Almond Bark.
 
I break apart the almond bark and place it in a glass mixing bowl.  To thin the almond bark for dipping consistency, I add one tablespoon of crisco shortening before placing the bowl in the microwave for 90 sec.  I remove the bowl from the microwave and stir.  I return the bowl to the microwave and microwave for 30 more sec. and then stir.  If all of the lumps are melted, the almond bark stirs easily, and is as thin as I would like for dipping, I begin adding Oreo cookies one at a time.  I use a wooden spoon to move the cookie around until coated well.  I then use the wooden spoon to remove the cookie and place it on wax paper until the almond bark is set.  After the almond bark is set, I use a knife to trim around the base of the cookie to make it more attractive.
 
Vanilla Almond Bark Oreo's are delicious.  They make nice teacher gifts as well as welcome  gifts for friends for Christmas.   Husbands like them, too.
