People this time of year are rushing around trying to find the perfect gift and don’t think about the traditons of the holidays. The sweet smell of peppermint and fresh cookies can change all of that. We sometimes just need to step back and enjoy the finer things: like these choclatey peppermint oreos. In addition, these are an easy-to-create treat.
All you need are some candy canes, regular Oreos and semi-sweet chocolate chips. After assembling your ingredients, break up the candy canes in a blender or food processor. Blend until they are a fine dust or powder. Next, grab a pan and fill it with water and place it on the stove and place a metal bowl over the water. Heat on medium and fill the bowl with chocolate chips. Stir until melted.
While the chocolate is still melted and hot, dip half of an Oreo cookie in it. Then, quickly dip the chocolate covered Oreo into the peppermint dust. Dip before the gooy chocolate dries, otherwise the sweet peppermint will not stick to the cookie. Set them to dry on a sheet of wax paper. After 15 minutes, you are free to enjoy your sweet treat!
