Peppermint Oreos

We are doing a Christmas Cookie Exchange for work tomorrow ... an excuse to taste several kinds of cookies???  Yes please!!  I chose to do Peppermint Oreos - they were so simple.  Kind of time consuming but well worth it!  I will be posting pictures of all the cookies I scarf down taste test later.

Recipes that call for only 3 ingredients are the bomb diggity!

I chopped mine mostly into a powder and left some small chunks.  Dear hubby informed me some of my chunks were too big and he hopes people don't break their teeth.  Thanks dear hubby for your concern...now I'm paranoid to even take them to work...maybe I should just keep them at home and eat them all myself!! :)

Also - the last recipe I needed crushed peppermint, I used candy canes and they were a pain in the you know what to unwrap.  The small candies were much easier...just a little tip!

The original recipe called for white chocolate but I find these candy melts are easier to melt and they also come in purdy colors!

Who doesn't love Oreos?!?!

Such ooey gooey goodness!

Yum! They do look a little time consuming, but so good! I love those candy melts.
