A quick and easy Christmas dessert your kids will love to eat (and help you make!). Try this Christmas cookie dessert idea for your next Christmas cookie exchange.
OREOs may be one of my guilty pleasures, but they can be upgraded to make a deliciously decadent dessert!
I’ve made chocolate covered OREOs before, but this idea combines my favorite holiday flavor…peppermint. I go nuts during the holidays for all things minty including peppermint mocha coffees, brownies, cookies, and of course, peppermint bark. By using OREOs as a base for this peppermint bark, I can create a sweet treat in half the time.
To get started, gather chocolate chips, peppermint extract, candy canes, and of course, OREOs.
On parchment paper, spread out OREOs. Crush candy canes with a rolling pin or a spoon in a plastic bag. Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave carefully until thoroughly heated through. Add peppermint extract for flavor.
Drizzle white chocolate using a squeeze bottle or carefully with a spoon. Repeat this process with regular chocolate chips. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top before the chocolate cools. Enjoy immediately or transfer the cookies to a refrigerator to set faster.
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- ½ tsp peppermint extract
- 24 OREOs
- 3-4 candy canes (peppermint flavored)
- Spread Oreos out on parchment paper. Crush candy canes with a rolling pin or back of a wooden spoon in a plastic bag.
- In microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in 30-second intervals until melted. Stir until smooth, then add ½ tsp peppermint extract.
- Carefully transfer melted white chocolate into a squeeze bottle and then drizzle all over the OREOs in desired pattern.
- Repeat with chocolate chips, omitting the extract this time. Drizzle onto the OREOs over the white chocolate.
- Before chocolate cools, sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top.
- Enjoy immediately or let the chocolate set first at room temperature. Transfer cookies to fridge for fast setting.
