One of my other FAVORITE Christmas treats was inspired by some store-bought cookies from Target. These yummy CHOCOLATE-covered bundles of joy are totally dangerous and definitely habit forming. Which is why I had to make my own! Luckily they are EASY to make and a fraction of the cost when COMPARED to their store-bought counterparts. :)
Candy Cane Oreos
1 bag good-quality milk chocolate chips
1 package chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreos, or any off-brand work great!)
Crushed peppermint candy canes
Lay a sheet of wax paper on your work space.
In a small saucepan over low heat, slowly melt the chocolate chips while stirring constantly. When the chocolate is smooth, remove from heat. Drop a cookie into the melted chocolate and use a fork to turn over and make sure it is completely coated. Scoop coated cookie out with a fork and tap fork on side of pan to make sure any excess chocolate falls back in. Place cookie on wax paper. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and repeat.
TIP: I usually dip about 4 cookies and then sprinkle them with the candy canes. Then dip 4 more and sprinkle, and so on. You just need to make sure the candy canes stick to the chocolate, so don't wait too long.
