Oreo cookies + white chocolate. At last count, there were a gazillion Oreo flavors out there, and they can all be made into super-easy cookie bark.
Puff pastry + sugar. Translated as “pigs’ ears,” this super-easy confection is also known as palmiers, palm leaves, or elephant ears. To change it up, roll the pastry dough with cinnamon sugar, fruit preserves, or Nutella.
Peanut butter + almond bark. So many ways to change up the flavors. How about dark chocolate and crunchy peanut butter next time? And there should definitely be a next time.

Chocolate chips + dried blueberries. Make this with dark chocolate and get a double dose of antioxidants in every bite.
Almonds + chocolate chips. Substitute any other nuts you like in this super-simple confection.
