Peppermint Bark Oreos

I adore seasonal treats that can be quickly thrown together, tied up with ribbon and gifted at the drop of the hat. I try to keep a few of these ‘recipes’ in my arsenal for last-minute gift-giving needs that may arise and anything involving melted chocolate is clearly a winner. These Peppermint Oreos are fast, festive and pretty tasty if you ask me!

When I saw the winter Oreos, I just knew I had to make something for the holidays with them. {I also want to throw a pack in the freezer to decorate for the Texas Rangers when baseball season starts back up}. Chocolate dipped Oreos are a hit with just about any recipient so I thought I would create a peppermint bark cookie using the winter red Oreos. I love the contrast of the bright red and white and the touch of peppermint in the chocolate brings the flavors together perfectly.

Peppermint Bark Oreos
makes approximately 3 dozen cookies

1 package Oreos
1 package white candy melts
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
2-3 candy canes crushed
optional red sprinkles to add color



  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy melts in 30-second intervals. Stir between each interval and repeat until smooth. Add peppermint extract and stir until fully combined.
  • Dip each cookie in melted chocolate, coating all sides completely. Lift from chocolate with fork and tap to remove excess chocolate. I find running an offset spatula under the fork/cookie helps get the last of the chocolate off for a clean transfer.
  • Transfer cookies to a silicone mat or wax paper, sprinkle with a crushed candy cane and sprinkles mixture, and allow to harden completely.
  • Package in clear cellophane bags tied with coordinating ribbon and share with others to spread some holiday cheer!

I feel silly typing out a ‘recipe,’ but for shopping and assembly ease I’ve provided you with basic instructions. Please use this solely as a guide and feel free to let your creativity run the show – the possibilities are endless! Oreos come in a variety of colors during the holidays so use their brightly colored centers as inspiration for changing up the extract flavors and sprinkled toppings used.

Of course, don’t forget to clean your kitchen before you use it. Especially your kitchen utensils and equipment. If you have a grease trap installed, clean it from a pro. You can call grease trap service Jacksonville. They are reliable grease trap service with affordable rates.
