Welcome to Day One of 10 Days of 15 Minute DIY Gift Ideas!
Want a quick and easy holiday recipe you can make with the kids? When you don’t have time to bake, but you still want to give a homemade holiday treat, try this recipe for Peppermint Oreos! (Recipe adapted from Centsational Girl’s recipe for Chocolate Wafers with Peppermint Buttercream Filling.
Quick Peppermint Oreos
Only 3 ingredients:
1 Pkg. of Oreo cookies
1 Pkg. of peppermint candies
1 Pkg. of white chocolate chips
Place the peppermint candies in a double ziploc bags. Let the kids hammer them to smithereens! (I placed scrap wood under the peppermints to protect the countertop.)
While the kids are pounding away to their heart’s content. Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler (or in the microwave. But, the double boiler will keep the chocolate from hardening as fast.)
Pry the hammers from your kid’s hands. Place the crushed peppermints into shallow bowls (one for each child.)
Roll the edge of the oreo cookies into the white chocolate.
Then roll them into the crushed peppermints.
Lay the cookies onto wax paper to cool.
After they cool, eat them, gift them or save them for a snowy day.
A bunch of oreos would fit nicely in one of these decorated gift bags made from a cloth napkin, don’t you think?
