Weekly Sweet


I spent last weekend in chilly Cincinnati with my boyfriend, and one of our favorite things to do together is cook. He is an amazing chef, and I’m slowly getting better, but we make a pretty great team in the kitchen! On a grocery shopping trip to get ingredients for one of our dinners, I got sidetracked by a display of limited edition Candy Cane Oreos…do those come out every year? Either they’re new or I’ve just never noticed them, but my gosh, they are delicious. I never buy packaged cookies, but this was worth making an exception. I can’t help thinking of how special they could be homemade, which is how I found this week’s weekly sweet.

{White Chocolate Covered Peppermint Oreos}

Enjoy it at: a holiday cookie exchange, or as an adorable favor at a winter wedding. Heck, why not even make it an any season wedding with a red color palette? They would fit in perfectly with one of my favorite past inspiration boards!

I definitely want to try this recipe, from Cupcakes and Crab Legs, but I would combine it with Smitten Kitchen’s Homemade Oreo recipe to make it extra special.

What’s your favorite cookie?
