Candy Cane Oreo Cookies Bars

by aimee @ shugarysweets on December 16, 2012

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.

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 a giveaway of 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!

Green & Black’s will not only be giving away some of their chocolate bars, but the lucky winner will also receive their cookbook and tote. I was fortunate to receive a copy of this cookbook, and at last count, I have 7 recipes dog-eared to try. That’s after only one pass through the book. Drooling.

Now. Go bake some delicious cookies. Enter the giveaway (in the Rafflecopter below). And tell your family you love them!

What are you waiting for????

I was invited to be part of a recipe contest, and I made it to the final round! If you have a quick minute, could you click over and give Shugary Sweets Chocolate Almond Fudge bites a vote? I’ll still be here. Go here: Sweetest 16 Contest. Thanks so much friends, I really appreciate all your support!

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

Haha. Yes, pick a favorite. But, no guarantee of you win you will get that choice ;)

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!

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 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!!

These look insane, Aimee. In a good way, of course! Those cookie bars look so rich and decedent and then to add to it you add Oreo’s. I may just love you forever! And the candy cane top looks so pretty and colourful too and the crunch factor is right up there. Yumorific!

I will never be able to make these since we don’t get candy cane Oreos in the UK – we just about get the regular ones! But that doesn’t stop me for inviting you to share this at my Cook, Craft, Create Link Party at The Purple Pumpkin Blog

Hope to see you there!

Happy holidays :)

Where do you find the red and green chocolate morsels??
Im using semi sweet chocolate chips instead because I wasn’t able to find them.
Please HELP!!

I find them at Kroger, Meijer, Walmart. You can use semi sweet too (or m&m’s)

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….

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 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.

Reply

Michelle December 12, 2013 at 11:23 pm

How many dozen does this recipe make please and thank you :)

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 13, 2013 at 7:00 am

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