The recipe from the CandiQuik blog only calls for three ingredients: vanilla CandiQuik coating, mint Oreo cookies and green sprinkles.
To make this yummy dessert, you’ll start by melting the chocolate and mixing it with crushed Oreo cookies. Once combined, spread onto a pan that’s covered in wax paper and top with even more crushed Oreos and sprinkles. Allow chocolate to set and then cut or break the bark into pieces to serve. Enjoy immediately or wrap in little baggies to have individual sets ready to share with others.
You can’t go wrong with a mint and chocolate combo, which is precisely why this recipe calls for mint Oreos. That, and the extra addition of green color thanks to the frosting in these cookies. But, you can really use any kind of cookie you’d like here. Try your favorite Girl Scout cookie, Thin Mints, instead of Oreos, for example. Yum!
This recipe for marshmallow swirl Thin Mint bark from Something Swanky found a way to incorporate everything there is to love about March into one dessert: Thin Mint cookies and St. Patrick’s Day fun. The mint and chocolate flavor we know and love is present without sacrificing a pop of green color.

If you really want to go all out for St. Patrick’s Day, you can also try this recipe for Leprechaun Bark from Classy Mommy, which really allows you to add in anything your heart desires. Rainbow-colored candies, green M&Ms and gold sprinkles were used in this version to resemble that lucky pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, but the more mix-ins you include, the better — especially if you still include a bit of mint and chocolate flavor. Every bark recipe is better with mint and chocolate cookies, after all:
