Aren’t these Christmas Oreo Thin Mints super cute?! They’re so easy to make and would look wonderful on a Christmas party table. With just 3 ingredients these beautifully simple treats are sure to brighten up someone’s day! Why not pop them into cellophane bags and tie with Christmas ribbon to make really lovely gifts?
Here is what you will need to make approx 32.
- 1 x 154g Pack of Oreos
- 450g Milk Chocolate
- 1 tsp Peppermint Extract
- White Fondant Icing
- Icing Sugar (for dusting)
- Edible Glitter
- Snowflake Plunge Cutter (for optional decoration)
Christmas Oreo Thin Mints Recipe
If you are making the snowflake decorations, roll out some white fondant to about 2-3mm thick on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar. Using your plunge cutter, cut out snowflakes and place them onto a plate. Pop them into the fridge to dry out while we get on with the rest.
Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and set to one side.
Take your Oreos out the pack. Carefully twist each one then scrape out the cream filling with a sharp knife. Don’t worry if you break a couple, keep them. You can ‘glue’ them back together with chocolate later.
Break the chocolate into a large microwavable bowl. Reduce your microwave’s power to half then heat the chocolate in 20 second intervals. Stir well between each time and repeat until your chocolate is melted and smooth. Then stir in the peppermint extract.
Dunk each Oreo biscuit into the melted chocolate and place onto your prepared baking sheet. I used some wooden ‘tweezers’ that I had, you could use a fork, your fingers, or whatever you like!
Once your Oreo is covered in chocolate, place a snowflake onto the top while the chocolate is still melted and sprinkle with edible glitter.
Repeat until you have used up all your Oreos.
Allow to set at room temperature before removing and storing in an airtight container at room temperature. Consume within 2 weeks.
I love these Oreo Thin Mints. They’re really easy & almost therapeutic to make. They also taste seriously good and would be lovely for many uses over the Christmas period. So whether you need a homemade gift, a buffet table addition or a treat to leave out for Santa, why not have a go at these delightfully delicious treats over the holidays?
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
