Peppermint & White Chocolate Covered Oreos

Serves 15
Prep time 35 minutes
Cook time 2 minutes
Total time 37 minutes
Meal type




  • 1 Package OREO cookies (If desired, get the ones with red or green creme filling to make them more festive.)
  • 8 Ounces white chocolate baking bar or pieces or white candy melts
  • crushed candy canes or peppermint candies


Step 1
Melt the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat for 30 second intervals (stirring between) until chocolate is nice and smooth.
Step 2
Dip the Oreo cookies into the melted chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off into the bowl, and place them on wax paper or parchment paper.
Step 3
Sprinkle each cookie generously with the crushed candy (do this before the chocolate is completely set so the candies will stick).
