White Chocolate-Dipped Festive Oreos

Just trrrrrry to resist these lil’ babies!chicken soup 018Tonight I am bringing these festive Oreos to my friend Laurel’s apartment for a holiday cookie exchange.

I can thank Ryan for the inspiration for these cookies, as he is perhaps the biggest fan of Oreos in the world. (Actually, my sister may hold that title, but it’s a pretty close call.)

Whenever Ryan and I stroll down Park Avenue in Winter Park, we always stop in Peterbrooke, a chocolate shop with the most amazingly delicious chocolate covered butter popcorn. It’s unreal.

While the chocolate-covered popcorn has my heart, Ryan loves the white chocolate-covered Oreos.

I figured I would try to recreate his beloved Oreos, but add a little festive flare to to the mix by adding crushed peppermint candy, red and green sprinkles and peppermint hot chocolate shavings from my favorite tin of hot cocoa made by Williams-Sonoma.

Second to the delicious taste, the best thing about these delicious-looking holiday cookies is just how EASY they were to make!

I only needed these key ingredients: chicken soup 003 

You really only need one package of Oreos and 1.5 bags of white chocolate chips, but adding crushed peppermint candies, chocolate shavings and sprinkles kicks the cookies up a notch.

To begin, I followed the melting directions on the back of the bag of white chocolate chips and heated them up until I had a thick bowl full of white chocolate.chicken soup 004While the white chocolate chips were melting, I crushed the peppermint candies and made sure all of my decorating essentials were readily available, as chocolate hardens quickly!

Once the chocolate was melted, it was time to dip!  chicken soup 006I chose to only dip half of the cookie in the chocolate but you can dunk the whole Oreo in there if you’re a white chocolate fiend. Don’t be shy!

I then topped the white chocolate with a random assortment of my toppings, typically alternating between the crushed peppermint candies, sprinkles and chocolate shavings so I would have a nice variety of decorated cookies in the end. chicken soup 007After each cookie was decorated, I placed it on top of foil and allowed the chocolate to cool and harden.chicken soup 011chicken soup 013 Please make these for the Oreo lover in your life… even if that person is you! They will thank you… or you will thank yourself!

Happy Holidays! 😀

    I recently made these also with peppermint oreos, they are so yummy! I then drizzled the tops with melted chocolate to make little designs. The best ones are from Trader Joe’s but Oreos also makes some also!

    When it comes to store bought cookies, Oreo’s rule every single time! And they are my absolute favorite fro-yo topping. These look awesome, Julie.

    Hey JB!

    Speaking of Oreos, I just recently ate and then made the most tasty treat – Oreo balls!

    Here’s the recipe in case you want to try it:

    1) mash a pack of oreos into a bowl
    2) mix the crushed oreos with a block of cream cheese (this is a bit tough but starts to mix after a while)
    3) form the mixture into balls and refrigerate for at least an hour
    4) bring them back out and dip them in melted milk, dark, or white chocolate (your choice)
    5) refrigerate again and then serve!

    It’s a delightful taste – you’re gonna love it – super healthy as well! 😉

    These are adorable! I am a fan of ANYTHING dipped in white chocolate. If anything could improve the deliciousness of an Oreo, it would be white chocolate.

    Cute! I’ve done chocolate dipped oreos before but never holiday ones, love it! You should make homemade oreos for your hubs. They are kinda time consuming to make, but they’re a fun treat to make for an Oreo lover!

    These looked soo delicious I HAD to make them for my Christmas gatherings. I can’t believe it took me FOUR stores to track down a bag of white chocolate chips!! This must be a hot item this season. I dipped mine in sprinkles, crushed mint chocolate candy canes, and coconut. The coconut ones are soo delicious and they look kind of wintery and festive!
