Tied With A Bow

It was a simple Trader Joe’s purchase a few years back that lead to a lasting obsession: Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s – more widely recognized as Oreo cookies with candy cane pieces mixed into the cream filling. The original Oreo cookie by itself doesn’t do much for me; but this seasonal version, thankfully only available during the holidays, is impossible to resist.

I decided to share my treasured box of Joe-Joe’s with family and friends, but not before making them even more special. By dipping the cookies in rich milk chocolate and sprinkling candy cane pieces on top, I was able to turn this snack into a beautiful seasonal treat. These Chocolate Covered Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s are simple to make, but make an impressive holiday gift, wrapped up and tied with a bow.
