White Chocolate Coated Mint Holiday Cookies
Truth be told, I have never been a big fan of Oreos. I know I know this is crazy because everyone seems to love them. I definitely don't hate them but I've always preferred other cookies...like snickerdoodles. My opinion of Oreos changed when I first tried the mint flavored Oreo. I thought to myself , "I think I get this Oreo thing now".
It's that time of year where people do strange things like "cookie swaps" so I figured I would try to work on a holiday cookie recipe. **Side Note, I recently learned what a cookie swap was. For those who are as confused as I was when I first heard about this, I'll attempt to clarify this for you. A good friend explained to me that it's a party in which everyone invited brings various kinds of cookies. Upon arrival to the party all the cookies are laid out and each individual takes one cookie from each cookie tray. The end goal of the cookie swap is that everyone goes home with a variety of "homemade" cookies. I was delighted to hear about this and thought to myself, "Are there cupcake swaps?"**
Sadly, due to the unpredictable/incorrect temperatures of my unconventional oven I am unable to bake cookies. Every time I try they're either over or under baked so I gave up. Seeing that semi-homemade recipes are my favorite I have grown to accept my ridiculous oven. I'm not even sure if what I'm sharing today is a recipe because it so simple...I think DIY might be more accurate. These white chocolate coated mint cookies only take 3 steps to create and the hardest getting a clean dip. So whether it be a cookie swap or a holiday potluck, impress everyone with this yummy recipe!
- 1 package of mint Oreos
- white chocolate baking chips
- red and green sugar or sprinkles
- Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
- Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave.
- Dip cookie into the melted white chocolate using two forks. (I did not use an Oreo mold so it was quite messy, so I suggest using an Oreo mold)
- Sprinkle sugar on top.
- Let stand until the white chocolate has solidified.
