Chocolate Dipped Candy Cane Joe-Joe's

I love Chocolate Sandwich Cookies as much as the next gal.
Oreos - heck yeah!
Who Nu - Yes indeed!
Even Organic ones are good - and good for ya (So you can have like 5).

But it wasn't until a trip to Trader Joe's and the recommendations from "TruffleSteph" of Chocolate & Toast and Tonia from Love Big, Love Often to buy Joe-Joe's and Peppermint Bark Baking bits. 
I did. And my life has not been the same!
Oh my! They make a great combination!

The Joe-Joe's by themselves are to die for! I had to hide them in the back of the cupboard from my husband. He's been sneaking them. 

Out of sight, out of mind.

Until I leave them on the counter for the family to see. (dumb, dumb, dumb.)

These are so easy to make.
1. Simply, open up the Joe-Joe cookie.

2. Dip a popsicle stick into some melted chocolate.

3.Lay the stick on the open cookie and close the cookie back up.

4. Once all the sticks are added, completely dip the Joe-Joe cookie, making sure that the chocolate fills in the edges and doesn't leave any air holes.

5. Then lay flat on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or a silicon mat and sprinkle with the Peppermint Bark Baking Bits.

Allow to dry.

These will be fun for the kids to make while out of school for the next two weeks. 

If you can't find popsicle sticks at your local craft store, you can still dip the Joe-Joe's. 
Just hold on to an edge and dip half in chocolate and add peppermint bark bits.

To make them a little extra Christmas-y, I added red jimmies.

These are also great for last minute gifts and cookie box fillers.
