  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package mint-flavored, cream-filled sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 16 ounces dark chocolate chips

  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract

  • 7 small peppermint candy canes, crushed, or more as needed


  1. Put entire bag of cookies in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to a fine crumb consistency. Transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Add cream cheese and mix until well combined. Roll into 1-inch balls. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  3. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Stir, then repeat in 1-minute increments until melted and smooth. Mix in peppermint extract.

  4. Drop chilled balls in the chocolate to coat, let any excess drip off, and place on waxed paper. Sprinkle crushed candy canes over wet chocolate. Return to the refrigerator until chocolate sets, about 1 hour.
