Chocolate Mint Crack(le)

I made this for a church potluck yesterday, from a recipe I got from Taste of Home.  A couple of my friends and I agreed that it's so addictive we couldn't stop eating it, so it was basically the food version of crack.  Hence my new name for it.  I've changed it a bit, so posting my version here.

Chocolate Mint Crack(le)

2 (10 oz) packages dark chocolate chips
12 mint Oreos -- broken into chunks
1/2 cup white baking chips
1 candy cane -- crushed

Line a cookie sheet with sides (not the totally flat kind) with parchment paper.  In a microwaveable bowl, microwave dark chocolate chips for 1 minute.  Stir.  Microwave again in 30-second increments, stirring between each heating, until fully melted and smooth.  Stir in cookie pieces.  Spread on your parchment-covered cookie sheet -- it might not go all the way to all the edges, but spread it out until it's fairly smooth and not a big glob.

Microwave white baking chips until melted, stirring every 30 seconds like before until smooth.  Drizzle over your dark chocolate-and-Oreos mixture, then sprinkle with crushed candy canes.  Refrigerate for one hour, or longer if it's not set yet.  Break or cut into pieces -- be careful, because those candy cane shards can be sharp.  Store in an airtight container, preferably tucked out of sight so you don't eat the whole thing in one sitting.
