Confetti Cookie Bark

Confetti Cookie Bark

Recently I tried a new snack: Chocolate bark, a mix of chocolate, nuts or more ingredients combined into irregular pieces, yummy snacks that are so different than any other. But then I realized that there are other types of "bark" snacks like cookie bark for example, so I definitely wanted to try and make my own combinations of that.

And because I have to admit, I love quick and easy recipes, I was attracted to making something like that. So I made these confetti cookie barks by just use ready-made cookie dough and had fun deciding how to combine and decorate it with other ingredients.

This is my first cookie bark idea, I came up with it by thinking on a cookie bark attractive for the kiddos. It can go nicely at a kid's party or even a baby shower.

What you'll need

  • 1 pouch (16 oz - 1 lb) of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla baking chips
  • colorful confetti
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable oil

How to make it

  1. Heat oven to 350°F or as directed in the cookie dough package. 
  2. Spray an oven tray with sides with cooking spray or use a sheet of parchment paper. Place all cookie dough rounds on the tray and press them together so you form a big flat cookie dough rectangle on the tray. 
  3. Top the dough with sprinkles. Place in the oven and bake for 11 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take out and cool for about 30 minutes.
  4. Microwave the vanilla chips and oil for 30 seconds, take out and stir. Repeat this process until is melted.
  5. Drizzle the melted chips carefully with a fork on the cookie bar. Add some more confetti (it's better if these are bigger than the first ones you used) and let stand until set. 
  6. Break in irregular pieces and store in an airtight container.
