Quick and easy, 3-ingredient peppermint chocolate covered Oreos. Classic Oreo cookies combine with melted white or dark chocolate and minty crushed candy canes for a festive and decadent, no-bake holiday treat.
If you’re by chance feeling a bit of holiday overwhelm (I’m not the only one, right?), or just looking for a quick and easy last minute treat, allow me to introduce to you the easiest, most festive little no-bake Christmas cookie: peppermint chocolate-covered Oreos,
One part cookie, one part candy, and entirely decadent and delicious, these chocolate dipped sandwich cookies are nearly foolproof to make (even with little ones), and perfect for edible gifting. Eleventh hour, or not 😉
What you’ll love about these peppermint chocolate covered Oreos:
Let’s start with the fact that only three simple ingredients (!) and about 30 minutes stand between you and these indulgent Christmas cookies.
Then you can choose white, milk, or semisweet chocolate for dipping. White chocolate is especially festive, but flavor-wise, I’m partial to super dark chocolate with some natural bitterness to complement the richness of the Oreo filling. I often end up making a mix, so everyone can pick their favorite combination. And finally, the finishing touch: some crushed candy canes or peppermint candies to sprinkle on top.
Yep, that’s it.
It’ll take about half an hour to dip the cookies and then wait for the chocolate to set. That leaves lots of time for playing in the snow, steamy mugs of hot cocoa, wrapping presents, and cheesy Christmas movies. Or maybe just making more cookies… Happy baking!!Print
