A #SundaySupper holiday peppermint white chocolate delight with crushed Oreos. It makes for a nice gift from your kitchen to give out. A recipe from Seduction in the KitchenChristmas is coming up quick! Are you ready? Me, no I am not, it seems to me like just coming  a little too quick if you ask me. I have my annual Christmas Dinner Party on the 5th that I host every year, I have nothing ready for it. I still need to finish up gift bags for it and also this year I planned on making homemade goodies for it. Nothing is ready or done.

I know me, I do work good under pressure, part my problem is, with work sending me 3 days a week out town to cover a medical center, it hard to make the goodies I want to make for these gift bags. So guess what I am doing last-minute, yep baking and making my candies. It is ok as I said I do work well under pressure, I mean that is what making and candy making is, under pressure to get them done.

That was why when I found out that the theme for this week’s Sunday Supper was Gifts From The Kitchen, I was excited on many levels. One is because this is my first Sunday Supper recipe post from my little hiatus I took while I moved into the new apartment and moved the site from Blogger to WordPress. Also, guess what this is motivating me to do one my goodies for these gift bags. Talk about great timing!

I personally love creating gifts from the kitchen to give out to people. For years I would make Christmas Cookie Trays and give out. I would make, and no I am not kidding, 20 different cookies for a tray. Why so many, well baking is therapy for me on different levels. When my ex told me he was divorcing me, he did at Christmas, he gave me 2 weeks to get out. To get over the shock and dealing with depression and everything he put me through, I forced myself that year to bake Christmas cookies. There is something therapeutic about creaming butter and sugar together, whipping egg whites into a frenzy to create a fluffy white cloud. Baking helps me relieve a lot of stress.

A few years later I started adding candies to those Christmas Cookie Trays. I love the look on people faces to see these homemade gifts. You can tell they really appreciate that homemade gift, over something store bought. I think it because they know you took your time to create something wonderful for them.

So, what gift from my kitchen, well should say my new kitchen. I am loving this nice new full size kitchen. I am able to really bake and create my candies in it over that tiny closet I had before. Anyway, I am making something that is easy and quick to make. It is something even the non baker person can do. It is Ho Ho Oreo Bark.

The inspiration for this was when I was in a craft store, they had chocolate candy melts that were white and already had crushed candy canes in them. I said to my friend Kanika, “What would go well with mint?” She looked at the candy melts look at me and said, “chocolate, no Oreos, you got do these with Oreos.” Yep, she is right, I could see doing a bark with crush Oreos on it with the melts.

Now why the name Ho Ho Oreo bark? Well, after tasting a small piece, I went back to a coffee I used to get that was only available during Christmas and was called Ho Ho Mocha. This reminded of it, sadly that coffee shop is no longer in Cleveland so no more Ho Ho Mocha, but this bark, the peppermint taste of it reminded me of that coffee I loved so much. So why not call it Ho Ho like that coffee.

A #SundaySupper holiday peppermint white chocolate delight with crushed Oreos. It makes for a nice gift from your kitchen to give out. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 12 oz Candy Cane Candy Melts or 1 bag white chocolate candy melts 1/2 cup crushed candy canes or peppermint crunch
  • 12-15 Oreos crushed

Instructions

  1. Over a double boiler, melt the chocolate. If you can not find the white candy cane candy melts, simply melt the white chocolate candy melts, then stir in the peppermint crunch or crushed candy canes into the melted white chocolate.
  2. As the chocolate is melting, make sure you keep stirring it, if you don't it could burn. Once the chocolate is nice and smooth, take off the double boiler. You could melt in a microwave, if you choose to melt chocolate in a microwave, melt on 30 second intervals, take out and stir it. Do that till the chocolate is nice and smooth.
  3. A third way to melt the chocolate if you do not want microwave, and you do not have a double boiler, is to bring a pot of water to a boil. then, turn the heat down to low, to keep at a simmer. Place a metal bowl, that is slightly larger then the pot on top. Put the chocolate in the bowl, and keep stirring til the chocolate is smooth. This my personal method I like to use.
  4. Line a small pan, like a brownie/ bar pan, with foil.
  5. Pour the melted chocolate into the pan and smooth it out.
  6. Crush up the Oreos and sprinkle them on the top.
  7. Press lightly the large pieces into the melted chocolate, and then place the pan in the freezer for 1 hour.
  8. Take the pan out the freezer, lift the foil out the pan. Peel the foil off the bark.
  9. You can break it up into pieces and place into goodie bags or Wrap up the whole thing to give out and ENJOY!
