Homemade Peppermint Bark Oreos are a great Holiday treat. Chocolate creme cookie sandwiches (Oreos) are coated in a peppermint flavored melted white chocolate and then topped with crushed candy canes. These cookies make a great edible gift - don't forget the free printable gift tag, linked below!
14.3ozpackage of chocolate creme sandwich cookies (Oreos or similar cookie)
(2)12 ozbags white chocolate melting wafers
3-4candy canes, crushed
Grab a rimmed baking sheet that will fit in your fridge. Line it with parchment paper or a reusable silpat.Crush the candy canes and set aside.
Melt the white chocolate wafers using one of two methods:A. Double boiler method - heat safe bowl filled with white chocolate wafers over simmering water. B. Microwave - heat for 60 seconds. Stir. Then heat for 30 second increments, stirring between, until melted.
Stir the peppermint extract into the melted white chocolate.
Using a fork dip the Oreos in the melted white chocolate and flip around until coated. Lift the cookie out of the chocolate with the fork and lightly shake back and forth to smooth the chocolate and get rid of excess.Lay on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle the top of the chocolate covered Oreos with the crushed candy canes. Make sure you sprinkle the candy canes on while the chocolate is still wet so it sticks. (kids can totally help with this step!!)
Pop the baking sheet of Oreos in the fridge for 15-20 minutes for the chocolate to set.
You can store the Homemade Peppermint Bark Oreos in an airtight container at room temp or in the fridge for up to a week.
