Christmas Cookie #12- Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes & Oreos

We have been busy today, making a few treats for our teacher's gifts (another post with more details on that to come) as well as baking for our project.

Yup, we have been all about the dipping. Yesterday pretzels, today Candy Canes and Oreos!
Don't they just look so yummy?
My favorite part of making these simple recipes is how involved my kids have been. From unwrapping the Candy canes (with a few broken pieces) to dipping, to sprinkling. It is so fun to have them in the kitchen with me!

Our lesson:
Last week our son brought home this poem from school...
The True Meaning of the Candy Cane
Look at the Candy Cane
What do you see?
Stripes that are red
Like the blood shed for me

White is for my Savior
Who's sinless and pure!
"J" is for Jesus My Lord, that's for sure!

Turn it around
And a staff you will see
Jesus my shepherd
Was born for Me

Melt chocolate in a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmering water.
Dip half the candy canes/oreos in melted chocolate and sprinkle some festive sprinkles all over :)
