Candy Cane Oreo Cookies Bars

Candy Cane Oreo Cookie Bars: made with #holiday #oreos and a white chocolate fudge with crushed candy canes! #christmas

As many of you know, a very sad event happened in our country this past week. Too many lives lost, senselessly. As I spent the weekend with my kids, doing our regular activities, I couldn’t help myself from hugging them a little tighter and whispering “I love you” a few extra times each day. I pray those families in CT find peace through this horrible ordeal and know that so many people in this country are holding them in our thoughts and prayers.

And with that…how do I begin writing my post about cookies. And joy? I think for me, I’m trying to remember the victims and not the villain. I’m trying to keep my children protected and innocent and sheltered as long as I can, even though I know there is so little one can do to prevent such tragedies!

So for me and my family, we will continue to pray for all the families affected by this horrible event. And hug. And enjoy each other this holiday season. And we will continue to bake cookies.

Candy Cane Oreo Cookie Bars: made with #holiday #oreos and a white chocolate fudge with crushed candy canes! #christmas

These cookies are made with the Holiday Candy Cane Oreos. I also used the Nestle Red/Green chocolate chips. And of course, to make the soft fudge on top, I used Green & Black’s white chocolate bars.

Today, I’m not only sharing a delicious cookie recipe, but I also have anews about some of my favorite chocolate (and more)! I use Green & Black’s Chocolate in most of my truffle recipes. Especially when it comes to vanilla. Green & Black’s white chocolate bars are simply amazing. They melt so smooth! And you know what I’m talking about when it comes to melting white chocolate…that stuff can be difficult. And clumpy. And very temperamental. But NOT Green & Black’s. I have only had success after success when melting down their white chocolate bars. Honest to goodness truth right there!

    We really have to choose just one? I think a dart board would probably work well in making the decision, but….. I’ve tried and liked the hazelnut & currant, but am a coffeeholic and would love to try the espresso bar, but I also really like dark and want a go at the 70% dark. Just pick one and I’m good. ;oD

    Thanks for the tip on Green & Blacks. I had a white-chocolate-melting disaster last week with another brand’s “white baking chips.” Never again! Next time I’ll spend the money to get good results. These look amazing — can’t wait to try!

    • posted Dec 17, 2012 at 7:51 pm

      I’ve had a few disasters in my past too. One tip, never use white chocolate CHIPS if possible when it calls for a smooth melted white chocolate. The chips have some sort of cornstarch or thickener that helps them keep their shape. Always opt for a baking bar!!

    How should the candy cane Oreo cookie bars be stored, and how long will they be good? I would like to make them the day before a party, but worry that they won’t be the same if made in advance….

    • posted Dec 10, 2013 at 7:01 am

      I store them at room temperature in an airtight container. The day before would be great still. After about 3 days the peppermint candy on top starts to get soft and sticky.

      You bake these in a 15inch x 10inch baking sheet. So it depends on how big you cut your squares.

    I love the recipe, they taste wonderful but my topping doesn’t look anything like the picture the sweetened cond. milk and chocolate don’t make a fluffy frosting- like look. It gets thick and sweet but doesn’t come out like that picture at all.

      I agree, Karen. I love these bars and have made them several times, but the topping never looks like the picture. I don’t know how you could get the topping to look so fluffy with the weight of the condensed milk??? I’d love to know if there is some way to get them to look like the picture though….either way. They are delicious and always a hit!
