These Ghirardelli melting wafers are amazing. So easy to get melted chocolate…in a hurry. I’ve been using them for the last couple of years. I find them in the baking isle of my grocery store.

You’ll also need some Oreo Cookies and crushed candy cane pieces for baking. These are great, they don’t melt and they hold their crunch perfectly. Found my bag at World Market.

Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate. I left 1/3 not dipped, but you can dip the whole cookie if you prefer.

  1. I just blogged about the trip yesterday too ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved seeing you and it went by way too fast!

    Onto these Oreo goodies…I would inhale these! And so simple – the best kind of holiday baking project! Pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Jenny, I made these nut today. I did not make the Oreo’s. I was interested in the pecans. They are DELICIOUS!!!! I made 6 batches today. They are GREAT Christmas gifts for anyone who loves pecans! MY pecans had been in the freezer for a bit so I did toast them in the pan before I sugared them. I don’t like the recipes that use egg whites. This one is PERFECT!
    DE-LIC-IOUS!
    THANK YOU for posting!
