Ingredients

  • 9 oz white chocolate (1 ½ cups) chopped or white chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint oil (or ¼ tsp peppermint extract)
  • green food coloring
  • 9 mint Oreos chopped

Instructions

  • Place the chopped white chocolate in a food processor and pulse it until it’s in small crumbles.
  • Combine the milk, cream, and salt in a medium saucepan, and place the pan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer. With the food processor running, pour the hot cream into the processor and blend until the white chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then stir in the peppermint flavoring and a drop or two of green food coloring. Taste it, and add more mint flavoring if desired.
  • Pour the popsicle mixture into your popsicle molds, leaving about ¾-inch at the top. Fill each mold with a generous pinch of chopped cookies, enough to bring the popsicle mixture almost to the top of the mold. Insert a stick into each mold, using the stick to gently press some of the cookies down into the molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • To remove, run warm water over the popsicle molds for a few seconds and gently slide the pops out. If you encounter resistance, run a little more warm water over it until they slowly slide out.
