peppermint bark OREOs

Festive red OREOs are coated in peppermint white chocolate and crushed candy canes to create deliciously simple Peppermint Bark OREOs.

I adore seasonal treats that can be quickly thrown together, tied up with ribbon and gifted at the drop of the hat. I try to keep a few of these ‘recipes’ in my arsenal for last minute gift giving needs that may arise and anything involving melted chocolate is clearly a winner. These Peppermint OREOs are fast, festive and pretty tasty if you ask me!

Yields: 36 cookies
  • 1 package holiday OREOs
  • 1 12-ounce package white candy melts
  • 1 Tablespoon peppermint extract
  • 2-3 candy canes, crushed
  • optional red sprinkles to add color
  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy melts in 30 second intervals. Stir between each interval and repeat until smooth. Add peppermint extract and stir until fully combined.
  2. Dip each cookie in melted chocolate, coating all sides completely. Lift from chocolate with fork and tap to remove excess chocolate. I find running an offset spatula under the fork/cookie helps get the last of the chocolate off for a clean transfer.
  3. Transfer cookies to silicone mat or wax paper, sprinkle with crushed candy canes and sprinkles, and allow to harden completely.
  4. Package in clear cellophane bags tied with coordinating ribbon and share with others to spread some holiday cheer!
