Peppermint Chocolate Oreo Bars
1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Fudge)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 14oz can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp peppermint extract (I used the dry)
14+ Christmas Oreos (or regular), broken up
1.5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 candy canes, smashed
Preheat of to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl mix together cake mix, butter, egg and peppermint extract. (I started with a for and then used my hands to get it all together. Once mixed, it will be a dough consistency, press into prepared pan. Sprinkle broken Oreos, then pour condensed milk over top. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until baked all the way through. Sprinkle crushed candy canes. *Optional* crush a couple more oreos on top when still hot!
I adapted this recipe from this recipe that I found on Pinterest! Of course I had to tweak it to make it more Christmas-y for my office Christmas Dinner tomorrow, because really, who doesn't love chocolate and peppermint together?!
