This Easy Peanut Butter Cookie Bark recipe has SO much going for it! It’s super quick, insanely easy, no baking involved, minimal pots to wash, makes a beautiful gift & tastes oh my God amazing!! And if that’s not enough for you, there’s only 5 ingredients too. Not bad eh? Love a good bark recipe like me? You should check out my toffee popcorn bark recipe too!
Here is what you will need to make a large slab.
First up, line your baking tin/sheet with baking paper and break each Maryland cookie into three. (Or whatever size you like. You could even leave them whole if you want to!)
Now to melt that milk chocolate. The easiest way to temper chocolate is in the microwave. The key is to not overheat it. A little patience goes a long way in making this the perfect treat!
So break the milk chocolate into a microwavable bowl. Then with your microwave on half power, gently heat the chocolate in 10 – 15 second intervals stirring well between each time. When it’s about two thirds melted, the bowl should be warm enough to continue melting the rest so just stir until it’s nice and smooth.
Break the white chocolate into another microwavable bowl and add the peanut butter. Repeat the same process as before until melted & smooth.
Next pour the melted milk chocolate into the prepared tin and spread out as evenly as you can.
Randomly pour over the white chocolate/peanut butter mixture.
Then take a skewer, cocktail stick or knife and swirl it around to make a pretty pattern.
When you’re happy with your marbling, randomly dot over the broken cookies & scatter the dark chocolate chunks. Finally just give them a little press to make sure they will stick into the chocolate. Leave to set completely at room temperature (important if you want to keep your chocolate tempered as any dramatic change in temperature can make the chocolate appear ‘faded.’) for 2-3 hours.
And that’s it!
Once set, break into shards. Store your Peanut Butter Cookie Bark in an airtight container and consume within 7-10 days.
It looks so pretty doesn’t it?! Peanut Butter Cookie Bark is definitely on my list of potential homemade Christmas gifts this year. It’s so quick & easy to make but looks like you spend WAY longer on it. Always makes for a good present in my books!
