These White chocolate Peppermint Oreos are one of my new favorite Holiday Cookies. They are more rich than just a basic oreo, but in a very good way. You must go buy the Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking CHips. They are wonderful and there are so many things that you can do with them.


I took these cookies to a cookie exchange with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It was a lovely time and I so enjoyed getting to know fellow bloggers. It was probably one of the nicest little brunches that I’ve been to because everyone was so mellow and kind. I love that. I hate the ones that everyone is just trying to one up or self promote. It’s just not as fun. Please make sure you check out their website, Cookies For Kids’ Cancer. It’s such a wonderful cause. And be sure to make these cookies for Santa. I’m sure you will adore them!

These White chocolate Peppermint Oreos are one of my new favorite Holiday Cookies. They are more rich than just a basic oreo, but in a very good way.

  • 2 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Cocoa, Unsweetened Hersheys
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Recipe By Me

  • 6 Ounces White Chocolate, I use ghirardelli chocolate and each square is one oz
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream, plus 1 Tablespoon
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, Unsalted, Softened
  • 4-5 Cups Powdered Sugar, I used just over 4, but one time needed almost 5 for some reason

For the Cookies

  • Heat the oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until smooth and lightened in color.

    2 1/2 Cup Flour, 3/4 Cup Cocoa, 1 teaspoon Baking Soda, 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix only until the ingredients are well incorporated. You don't want to over mix this cookie.

  • Remove to a cooling rack.
  • Frost the underside of one cookie and then place another on top.
  • Devour!

For the Frosting
