  • 16 to 20 oreo cookies (or your favourite vegan chocolate cookie)
  • 7 to 10 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 1 tsp peppermint oil (you can't use alcohol-based extracts)


  • Twist the oreos to separate them (see notes), and scrape off the cream filling (either discard the filling...or eat it, if you're into that.)
  • Place 2/3 of the chocolate into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until almost fully melted then remove the bowl from the pan. Stir in the remaining 1/3 of finely chopped chocolate, mixing until full melted, then stir in the peppermint oil well.
  • Dip an oreo half in the melted chocolate, turn to coat using a fork. Use the fork to remove the oreo from the chocolate, tap it on the edge of the bowl a few times (to let excess chocolate drip off).
  • Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Repeat with all the oreo halves.
  • Leave at room temperature until set.
  • Store in an airtight container somewhere cool and out of direct sunlight for up to 2 weeks.
