Salted Caramel Cookie Frozen Yogurt Bark

Post in collaboration with Maryland Cookies

This frozen yogurt bark with salted caramel cookies, pistachios and dried cranberries is quick to put together and tastes delicious. A no bake treat that's fun to make and an ideal recipe for kids to help out with. The perfect combination of crisp, creamy, and barely sweet.





Cookie Monster will do anything for a cookie and after trying the new Maryland Thins I'm on pretty much the same wavelength! Maryland are the UK's no.1 cookie brand with just the right balance of chocolate chips & cookie dough. Their new offering is ideal for anyone looking for a lighter snacking option. At half the thickness of a standard Maryland Cookie the Thins weigh in with less sugar and calories but all of the taste. They are available in two variants - Milk & Dark Choc Chip and Salted Caramel (rrp £1.49/128g). Now I'm a complete sucker for all thing salted caramel so no surprises what my favourite is. Two cookies come in at a respectable 79 calories (or 4 syns on Slimming World), of course the only issue is stopping at two... Their taste and texture is undeniably moreish.



When it comes to eating a cookie there are plenty of options - not just popping it into your mouth whole. Dunk one in a dessert, sandwich with Ice cream for a Cookiewich or dip into a hot cuppa. Cookie Crumbs can be used to form the base for a pie or cheesecake, to pimp up a milkshake or as a garnish for a cocktail - I'm thinking Espresso Martini with a Salted Caramel Cookie Crumb Rim! But that will need to wait for another today. Today's recipe is for Salted Caramel Cookie Frozen Yogurt Bark. This is such a delicious recipe that is super quick to make. It's a great snack and much healthier than chocolate bark or ice cream. Once you have the basic principle you can ring the changes with what you add in terms of fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, seeds, coconut, granola etc.  Frozen Yogurt Bark works well as a snack, dessert or even for breakfast. Any legitimate excuse to enjoy cookies for breakfast and I'm there. Such a great recipe to make with kids too - providing they have the patience to wait until it's frozen. 


Salted Caramel Cookie Frozen Yogurt Bark 

2 x 400g Tubs of Vanilla Yogurt 
60g Pistachios, roughly chopped 
60g Dried Cranberries 
12 Salted Caramel Cookies 

Line a 23cm x 32cm shallow baking tray with greaseproof paper and create a space in you freezer where it will fit.
Mix together the yogurt, 40g of the pistachios, 40g of the cranberries. Crumble in 6 of the cookies and combine well. Tip into the lined tray and smooth out. 
Decoratively arrange the remaining pistachios, cranberries and broken cookie pieces on top of the yogurt base then freeze for at least 2 hours. (make sure that it's sitting perfectly horizontally) 
Remove from the baking tray and chop into large shards.
Eat immediately or store in the freezer in a sealed bag or tub until required. (can be frozen for up to 2 months)

    1. The colours all works so well together. Not sure my OCD tendencies would actually let kids go wild to create their version!

    1. Makes them last a longer too as you need a wee bit of patience for the bark to soften before you bite.

  3. It looks great and has also made me want to try and make some frozen yoghurt bark with my kids. It's one thing we've never tried and it would be a slightly healthier treat than ice cream. Well, depending on what we put in it!

  4. Ooh this looks fantastic for the after school munchies - Great idea to have already chopped and ready in the freezer. The colours of those cranberries & pistachios are wonderful.

    1. Perfect for after school snackage. I do love the flavour and colour combination of pistachios and cranberries. I've blogged and adult bake that uses them in Bailey's Fudge!
