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.)
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!
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.While 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!
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. After each cookie was decorated, I placed it on top of foil and allowed the chocolate to cool and harden. 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!
