If you love oatmeal cookies, dress them up for the holidays. Peppermint Oatmeal Cookies have all the soft goodness of your favorite oatmeal cookie, with a little holiday punch of peppermint.
Not only do I love the flavor of this cookie but I love the texture. The chewiness of the oatmeal cookie is great but is made so much better when it is dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy cane. Chewy and crunchy!
I used my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and instead of chocolate chips I used the Andes Peppermint Baking Chips. You could use a mint chip instead. They would even be good with a white chocolate chip or no chip at all.
After the cookies are baked and cooled I melted some Wilton Vanilla Chips and just dipped one end of the cookie. Place it on a cookie sheet and then sprinkle with some chopped up candy cane.
Let the white chocolate set up and then munch away!!
