- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract or essence
- 200 grams (1 and 1/3 cup) dark chocolate
- 3 peppermint candy canes
- Line a baking tray with baking paper. Crush your candy canes using a mortar and pestle or similar.
- Add Oreo cookies to a food processor and whiz until they turn to fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and peppermint essence whiz again. The mixture should start to stick together.
