How To Make The Peppermint Chocolate-Covered Oreos

  1. Gather all of your ingredients together so that you are ready to go. Then place the parchment paper on a baking tray.
  2. Melt the almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl for 30-second increments, stirring in between. Continue to stir until melted. Be careful with this method. While it is quick it can also burn the chocolate or almond bark. Keep an eye on it. 
  3. Dip the oreo cookies into the almond bark. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off the cookies, then place the cookies on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, making sure to give a little space between to allow for space for the chocolate to spread. You don’t want any cookies sticking together.  
  4. Sprinkle the tops of the almond bark with crushed peppermint. 
  5. Allow the almond bark to set. This can take up to 30 minutes to an hour depending on how humid your home is. 
  6. Voila! Your peppermint chocolate-covered oreos are done. Yum!

Recipe Variations

Want to add some different toppings? Why not! This is great with edible glitter and other candies that you might want to add. You could even add crushed biscuits or even some more crushed Oreos if you wish. You don’t need to stick with the peppermint flavor, but that is on point with the festive season. If you still want the peppermint flavor then you could add peppermint extract to the almond bark.

Why not get some food coloring involved? You could add a few sprinkles of red or green food coloring to portions of the melted almond bark or white chocolate. This will change the whole appearance but it definitely screams Christmas treat. 

Don’t want to use almond bark? Then why not use, melted white chocolate chips, milk, or dark chocolate instead? It can still be made in the same way it will just look a little different and have a stronger flavor. Dark and milk chocolate works well with peppermint flavors.

Tips & Tricks

  • This recipe is easily scaleable to make more, but you should be okay with ¼ cup crushed peppermint unless you are doing quite a few almond bark dipped cookies. 
  • Make sure you space out the white chocolate covered oreo cookies enough so that they don’t set joined together by the chocolate or almond bark. 
  • Don’t overload each cookie with your chosen topping. It only needs a sprinkling and you want to ensure that there is room for the crushed peppermint to set into the almond bark or white chocolate.

Storage

These cookies can keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container, with parchment paper between each layer. They are perfect stored in a sealed mason jar.

You can store them at room temperature but if your home is warm then it may be best to store them in the refrigerator.

FAQ

What if I can’t buy crushed peppermint, what can I use instead?

You could use crushed candy canes or peppermint candies instead. They are perfect for this recipe. However, you will need to crush them yourself.

Place the candy canes or the peppermint candies in a Ziploc bag and then use a meat pounder to bash them up. This will easily crush them up and then you can carry on with the recipe. 

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes absolutely. These make great gifts and are also the perfect sweet snack to have in your home during the festive season.

They will last a couple of weeks when stored in an airtight container and are real yummy treats. Just make sure you place some parchment paper between each layer.
