Peppermint Cream Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich cookies with white filling (15 cookies)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 2 peppermint candy canes, crushed, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine crushed cookies and melted butter. Press mixture into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool slightly in pan on a wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor combine powdered sugar and softened butter. Cover and process until butter is evenly distributed. With processor running, add milk and peppermint extract through feed tube until a paste forms. Spread peppermint mixture evenly over prepared crust. Freeze for 45 minutes.
  4. In a medium microwave-safe bowl combine chopped chocolate and shortening. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) about 1 minute or until chocolate is melted, stirring once. Let chocolate cool for 15 minutes. Pour chocolate over peppermint layer, spreading evenly. Sprinkle immediately with crushed candy canes.
  5. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars out of pan. Use a 1-1/2-inch round cookie cutter to cut into rounds* or use a sharp knife to cut into squares. Store in the freezer until serving time.

  1. Yay! I voted for you the other day and see that you won the first round:) Voting in this competition has been difficult because there’s so many great bloggers contributing awesome recipes… I love peppermint patties and dark chocolate and these look like the perfect gift giving idea for Christmas. I do wonder if you were making these back in June though:)

  2. I think my computer has smell-a-vision, because I feel like I can smell the peppermint in these!! I am drooling over here, and I voted!

  3. Bummer, I didn’t get a chance to vote. I hope you win. These peppermint bites look absolutely delicious! I am so making these for my Christmas baking. I love that you are on to Christmas goodies already. 🙂 Good Luck Aimee. Let us know what happens k.

  4. While that cheesecake looks delicious, I’m all about chocolate (not white chocolate) and peppermint! These look amazing, Aimee, and you’ve got my vote!

  5. I can totally see why you made these a few times…holy yum! Peppermint and Oreo is such a great combo!!! Good luck with this fun competition 😉

  6. The snow is already here, so I might as well get into the holiday spirit. What better place to start than with these? Gorgeous!

  7. It’s definitely not to early to start the festoive recipes and yes….I am drooling…lol.

    I lolve brownies, but with the added mint twist, this just makes them extra yum 🙂

  8. I wish you (and Katrina) the best of luck! Eek 🙂 This looks so good and I just made my first mint recipe of the season over the weekend! Pinned and love all the layers of goodness!

    1. Contests are so hard, especially when you are pitted against a friend!! Either way though, I’m cool. Her cheesecake looks amazing! Thanks for pinning 🙂

  9. Seriously! You have combined two of my all time favorite things. Definitely making these for the holidays 🙂

    1. Oh dude, I made these a couple times…they are so freaking good! Perfect for giving as a gift to keep yourself from eating an entire batch 🙂

  10. This is SO GOOD. Peppermint patties are already superstars in their own right, so adding an oreo crust to the mix… you win the internet.

  11. Aimee, I really hope you win. Along with all the other awesome bloggers. Wait, that’s not possible? It should be.
    But in your case especially, because I’ve been reading your blog forever and I love your recipes!
