PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE OREO COOKIES
We used to live by a Trader Joes, and every holiday season we’d run into the store and buy a box(or two)of their peppermint chocolate cookies. Over the years they became so popular, they’d sell out very quickly, and not everyone is fortunate enough to live by a TJ.
We started making our own! Our Trader Joe’s copycat cookie!
They taste amazing, and if I’m honest, better than TJ’s!
Making your own Peppermint Chocolate Oreo Cookies is so easy, no baking required, and you can find all the ingredients at any grocery store. If you decide to make these when candy canes aren’t on the shelves anymore, you can always use peppermint extract in the chocolate.

- Line a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
- Unwrap candy canes, place into a ziplock bag, cover with a towel, and using a hammer, meat tenderizer or even a rock(something hard) crush the candy canes into small pieces. Place into a small bowl.
- Now it's time to melt the chocolate.Microwave method: place chocolate wafers in a microwave safe container and use defrost setting for 30 seconds. Stir and if it's not completely melted, microwave at 15 second intervals and stir until smooth. Do not let it overheat.Stove Top Method: place chocolate wafers in top pan of a double boiler over low heat. You want to stir it constantly until smooth and melted. Don't allow the water to boil.
- Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate; you can either just dip half of the cookie or the full cookie using either two forks or kitchen tongs so the excess chocolate is able to drain off. Place the coated cookies back onto the lined baking sheet.
- After you dip the cookie sprinkle the crushed candy cane onto the chocolate before it dries.
- If you have space in your refrigerator, place the cookies inside and allow 20 minutes to set. If you don't have space(like we typically don't), let them sit on the counter for about an hour to get firm.
- Store cookies in a cool and dry place.
