I promise this will be the last of my overdue Christmas goodies posts. Just like the PB fudge, these Oreos are something I make every year at Christmas, and our family and friends who are chocolate fans go nuts over them. My mother-in-law even brought me a package of mint Oreos before Christmas just to make sure I had them ready to dip. ;-) And, just like the PB fudge, this is one of the easiest things to make!
I just melt one bag (I think 12 oz) each of dark (semisweet) and milk chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove - I generally use Ghirardelli. With the thickness shown below, that amount will cover somewhere around 3 dozen of the double stuf Oreos - which the seasonal and mint Oreos are. One other tip: After dipping (and decorating if you desire), place the Oreos on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and pop them in the freezer for a bit - they'll harden quickly and be much easier to peel off the sheet and store without damage.
From L to R: Holiday Oreo with red filling (regular flavor); Cool Mint Creme Oreo; Limited Edition Candy Cane Creme Oreo (not anything special, to be honest); Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joes - I thought these had the strongest mint flavor, with little candy cane bits in the filling. I tried to help out the non-mint fans with a coding system on the outside. Yum! Okay, I'll try not to make any more Christmas posts until after Thanksgiving. Back to watching the last college football game for awhile...
