  • small mixing bowl
  • baking sheet
  • rubber spatula
  • Measuring Cups


  • 1 box Oreos or other chocolate cookies
  • 12 oz chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
  • 1 cup crushed peppermint candy


  • Melt the chocolate: Pour 12 oz chocolate chips into microwave safe bowl, microwave for about 2 minutes, taking bowl out every 45 seconds to stir. Continue to cook and stir until chocolate chips are melted and silky. Set aside.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or reusable baking mats and pour 1 c crushed peppermint candy into shallow bowl. Dip each Oreo cookie halfway into chocolate, then place on baking pan. Once all cookies are on the baking sheets, sprinkle peppermint candies liberally over cookies.
  • Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, at least 15 minutes. Once hardened, you can distribute them into plastic bags or jars as gifts. Or refrigerate until you eat them.



  • Use your favorite kind of chocolate chips. I prefer semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can also use regular or double stuf oreos.
  • Buy crushed peppermint candy OR place peppermint candies or candy canes in a freezer plastic bag and roll rolling pin over them to smash candies.
