Mint Chocolate Heaven

During the holiday season my friend Natalie gave our family the most delicious cookies. I begged the recipe out of her so that I could copy her brilliance for valentines day.

This is what you will need:


If you have dealt with the candy melts before and struggled like I did, Natalie also shared the dipping secret with me. We did not use a double boiler all we used was a microwave safe plastic bowl and the microwave. We put in the amount we wanted to use then micro waved for 30 seconds and gave it a stir. We continued this process until all the lumps were gone and added a few drops of peppermint oil and food coloring (yes you can buy the already colored chips but I am cheap), then dipped them like this…..


We set them on parchment to harden and later added a decorative pattern with a squeeze bottle (because that’s what Natalie did and I had to copy her heavenly cookies as closely as possible :)


I let them set up for several hours then transferred them to my cake stand. Seriously if you have the time make this project they are super easy and taste amazing.


I am glad that my Honey was around to help me with this because we got way more done together than I could have on my own (and I ate less of them during the making process because he was watching lol). And of course we gave some cookies and melted chocolate to the Little Guy so he could make his own creations (and be entertained).


I wish I could send some of these to all of you but since I can’t I thought the next best thing would be instructions on how to make your own. Let me know how yours turn out if you decide to make them.


  1. Those seriously look sooo good! I am going to have to make them. And then hide them from my husband :)

    Stop by my blog. I have an award for you.

  2. You can send some to me! They look fantastic!

  3. Yum yum! I've been wanting to try these for a long time, so maybe I'll try this weekend. I got a TON of colored melting chips on sale this week. HALF PRICE SALE!!!! :)

  4. Lacie, I make some peanut butter ones that are just as yummy. Take Ritz crackers and sandwich them with peanut butter, then dip them in almond bark (melting choclate) and then drizzle with white chocolate. They taste like peanut butter cups. yummy!!! Love the pink chocolate and white drizzle. Good idea for visiting teaching ideas. Love your ideas. You are so cute!!!

  5. some for me! please

  6. YUMMM! I want some right now! Thanks for sharing this great idea. I will definitely be making these. Miss you & Love you!

  9. I'm not a huge oreo fan, but these LOOK too cute. Never tried the squeeze bottle thing. Looks so professional.

    Thanks for stopping by this morning. I'm scouring the 'net for feng shui pics. Kinda hard to find before 'n afters, but, as they say, one picture is worth 1000.

  10. This is such a fantastic idea! They look so elegant!

  11. Oh wow, wow, wow! This is great! I'm going to try this. Thank you!
    You have full of ideas on your blog! LOVE IT!

  12. So I went and did something similar to this after reading this post. I dipped Oreos in melted chocolate.

    I made these for my husband to take to work and share with him employees. And It was a hit. Thanks for the idea.

  13. Those look so yummy - but I kinda like you made them and showed them so we don't have to eat them. ;)

  14. I saw Mint Chocolate and had to click over here - glad I did. Simple and yummy!
