Peppermint Oatmeal Cookies have all the goodness of your favorite oatmeal cookie, with a little holiday Touch of white chocolate and peppermint.
Not only do I love the flavor of this peppermint oatmeal 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!
How to Make Peppermint Oatmeal Cookies
- I used my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe
- I use Andes Peppermint Baking Chips but they may be hard to find and are only available during the holidays. If you can’t find them you can use a mint chip, a white chocolate chip or just leave the chips out. The cookies have plenty of flavor without them.
- Bake the cookies at 350 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes.
- Move the cookies to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
- Melt 2 cups of white chocolate chips or Wilton Vanilla Chips.
- Dip one end of the cookie into the melted chocolate.
- Place on the baking rack and sprinkle with crushed candy cane.
Let the white chocolate set up and then munch away!! If you are in a hurry, place the peppermint oatmeal cookies in the refrigerator to set them up faster.
