I’ve been making peppermint bark for as long as I can remember, and the other day when I baked a batch of cookies, I started thinking…hmmmm, I wonder if I could make cookie bark.
And so I decided to try chocolate chunk cookie bark! It turned out incredibly well and my family loved it!
It also makes a great holiday gift, but don’t give it all away. You’ll want to keep some for yourself too. It’s delicious!

How to make triple chocolate chunk cookie bark
When it comes to cookie mixes, Krusteaz has got the homemade taste thing figured out, so start by baking a batch of their Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
They’re in.credible, but don’t get carried away and eat them all.
Ok, you can have one…
Then you’ll melt some almond bark in the microwave and spread it in a thin layer on waxed paper. Go thinner than you think because it always looks thinner than it really is.
The cookie bark will be rich, so don’t overdo it with thick pieces.
Now crumble those cookies into big chunks and gently press them into the candy. It might seem like there’s an awful lot of cookies, but trust me, you’ll be glad when all is said and done.
Really fill it up with cookies!
Next melt the other half of the almond bark. Pour over cookie chunks and spread with a spoon or spatula to cover them smoothly.
All that’s left is to refrigerate it until firm, and then break it into irregularly shaped pieces.
It’s sooooo good! And it looks really pretty when packaged for a gift.
