White Chocolate Dipped Oreos with Peppermint Sprinkles


I hope that this Christmas brings wonderful family, friends and food to your dinner table, along with new memories made with loved ones and old traditions enjoyed.

As I type this, the Cinnamon Rolls have been started (I'll make them today so that all I have to do on Christmas morning is pop them into the oven!) and there are only a few gifts left to wrap.  I've got to get started on a Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, and whip up some homemade doggie treats for our fur babies.  :)

Brad and I have been so blessed already this holiday season.  We've gotten to spend time with lots of family over the past several weeks and even more tomorrow.  What a wonderful holiday, so far!

Today, I want to share a quick and simple holiday treat that is incredibly easy, yet wonderfully scrumptious.  It technically probably doesn't even need a formal recipe, but here's one anyway...

Merry Christmas and Bon Appetit! 

White Chocolate Dipped Oreos with Peppermint Sprinkles

1 package "Winter" Oreos (with red creme filling)
2 lbs. white chocolate morsels
1 tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
5 candy canes

Break the candy canes into large pieces and place them in the bowl of a food processor.  Pulse several times, until the peppermints are broken into tiny pieces (but not so much that they turn to powder!)

Next, melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring often.  If needed, add a little canola oil to the chocolate to keep it smooth.  One at a time, dip the Oreos into the melted chocolate and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.  Before the chocolate dries completely, sprinkle the peppermint pieces over the Oreos.
