My Favorite No-Bake Cookie

This cookie is not a no-bake cookie in the traditional sense.  It was once baked, but twas not I who did the baking. These White Chocolate Peppermint Oreos are so pretty and delicious, and you will not believe how easy they are. I'm not a huge peppermint fan but these have just the right touch of mint flavor to combat the sweetness of the chocolate.

Each year for Christmas my family (immediate and extended) do a gift exchange where we draw names- one cousin and one aunt/uncle. This year we decided that we would skip the name drawing and do small/ hand-made gift for each person. I will not say what the lady gift is but I feel safe in saying I made jars of cookies for all the guys.

Really all there is to it is-
Melt white chocolate chips. Dip your cookies halfway in the chocolate. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Voila! I made around 130 of these in about an hour. Not bad.

I carefully arranged 7 cookies in each jar. While they are simple and pretty just like that- I decided to make them more festive. With a little ribbon, a bow and a simple white tag they are suddenly like a party in a jar! I really wanted a gift for the guys that wasn't a food item because I felt that was expected. Even with Pinterest on my side,  I had a really hard time coming up with something. I guess men just really like food. These make a super easy, inexpensive (about $2.15 per jar for EVERYTHING) and delicious gift. Like seriously....they're so good.

You could also come up with different combinations of these treats with other store bought or homemade cookies– sugar cookies dipped in chocolate with crushed Reese's piece might be a tasty combo. Any others you might try?
