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


  • Add chocolate chips to microwave safe bowl, microwave for about 2 minutes, taking bowl out every 45 seconds to stir. Continue to cook until chocolate chips are melted and silky. Set aside. 
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or reusable baking mats, pour 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.
