I promised you butter, sugar, and pants that seem to have magically shrunk overnight.
Well, this is where we begin: a copycat version of the famous Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s.
Anyone living within 25 miles of a Trader Joe’s likely knows about these cookies, but whether you have been lucky enough to acquire a box is a whole different story. TJ’s version of peppermint Oreos – but made without the food coloring and with the addition of crushed peppermint candies in the filling – disappear from the shelves each year faster than you can say “Bah humbug”, and leave those who do get them wanting more once they’re gone.
Lucky, lucky you: now you can make your own! Make them for your holiday parties, package them up as gifts for your child’s teacher or your hair stylist, or make them when no one else is home and keep them all for yourself. Really, there is no going wrong when you have homemade Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s at your disposal!
