Chocolate Mint Oreo Cups

Chocolate Mint Oreo Cups

In case you have missed some of the older posts on the 24 Days of Christmas Baking, you can see pics and links to all the previous days here.

Last year I added some chocolate candy cups to my collection of Christmas baking.  I made chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate with almonds and dried blueberries (recipe found here) and these chocolate mint Oreo cups. They were all a huge hit and were gobbled up very quickly. My three kids loved them all but the chocolate mint Oreo cups were their favourite. They, like me, love the combination of chocolate and mint and the crunch of the Oreo crumbs provides a great texture for this bite size treat.

Finished Cups

To make these, I used Wilton Candy melts. For the chocolate base it is possible to use chocolate chips, but it would be recommended to add 2 tbsp of butter to the chocolate while it is melting.

Melt the candy melts in a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water.

Serves: 48
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups chocolate melts
  • 1 cup oreo crumbs
  • 3 cups green candy melts
  • ½ tsp pure mint extract
  • 48 candy cup liners
Instructions
  1. Put the chocolate candy melts in a glass bowl. Rest the bowl on top of a pot half filled with water. The glass bowl must be large enough that it rests on top of the pot and is not touching the water at all. Bring the water to a low boil. Stir the candy melts until melted and smooth.
  2. Stir in the Oreo crumbs and spoon into the candy cup liners so that they are about half filled.
  3. Melt the green candy melts in a glass bowl using the same method as the chocolate melts. When the green candy melts are melted and smooth, stir in the mint extract.
  4. Spoon the green candy melt into the cup liners filling them to the top.
  5. They will harden as they cool
