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.


  1. Okay, so I'm definitely making this for my Pastor's wife coffee next week! Just what I needed! Thanks for sharing.

    1. I'm planning to make it for our Advent Family Nights again too. It's soooooooooooooo good.
