I’m on such a huge chocolate & peppermint kick right now. I can’t seem to get enough of that wonderful combo. The family sure isn’t complaining. The hubs waits all year for all the peppermint stuff to come on back. So when I start making all sorts of goodies with chocolate & peppermint- he’s one happy guy. So I just couldn’t wait to share this Candy Cane Oreo Pie with you all. I originally shared this over at Jen’s place about a week ago but just had to share it here with you all too. It’s rich & decadent & INCREDIBLY EASY to make. Isn’t that the best part??
It really is so simple & makes a huge impact. Chocolate, oreos & a hint of peppermint. I was so thrilled to find these holiday Oreo’s – Candy Cane mini’s. I don’t think I have ever found an Oreo flavor I didn’t fall in love with. It’s the one store bought treat (aside from candies) that we buy in bulk. So good.
The white chocolate drizzle on top is completely optional. You could add whipped cream instead. I decided on the white chocolate because I wasn’t sure how quickly we would get to enjoy this pie. It’s great when you need to make ahead & stores well in the freezer for a couple days. If you want whipped cream instead of chocolate drizzle – it’s best to add it right at serving time.
That’s it & look how pretty too!
