Crater cookies

Earlier this year I briefly wrote about the crater cookies I made for husband’s birthday. I’ve made these seriously simple delights several times since, so I thought it was about time they get their own blog post.  I’ve even made and brought these to parties so one does not attend empty handed, and they’ve gone down a treat every time. Prepare to salivate from the facial region …

I spotted this recipe online earlier this year, to which I can thank and am forever in debt to the Pinterest gods for sending it my way. Originally titled cookies and cream Oreo bark, this recipe could not be simpler. Two ingredients. See?
3 x 100g white chocolate bars, I used Milkybars {or 4 packs, using one to drizzle over the top at the end}
4 x 150g packs of Oreo’s 
Gently melt your white chocolate in a pot on the lowest setting on your stove, stirring occasionally. While the chocolate is melting, chop your Oreo’s into quarters – you don’t want to chop them too small otherwise when added to the chocolate, it turns into a heaping mess of grey. 
When the white chocolate has fully melted, stir in 3/4 of the chopped Oreo’s, saving some to decorate the top. Line a tray with grease proof paper and tumble the contents of the pot onto it. Mush it down a bit so it isn’t one big lump, and add the remaining pieces of chopped Oreo’s to your liking. Should you like to get in touch with your inner Pollock, melt a 4th bar of white chocolate and drizzle over the top for extra hysteria. 
Place the tray into your fridge and allow to cool for roughly one hour. Once cool, chop and pile haphazardly onto a decorative plate, and place at either child level or within reach of someone you don’t particularly like. 

The above is a perfect amount for entertaining, as it is an incredibly rich treat and one would only handle a few nuggets per sitting. For a more personalized stash, halve the quantities shown above. Keep any leftovers in an air tight container in your fridge, where they will eagerly await to be picked at any hour of the day or night. xx A
