Ingredients
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 Tbsp espresso or instant coffee crystals
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 (15.25 oz) pkg Oreo cookies, finely crushed into crumbs
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • About 1 cup crushed candy cane pieces
Instructions
  1. Line an 8 or 9-inch pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Grease the foil lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the evaporated milk and espresso over medium-low heat, or until coffee is dissolved. Stir in ONE (1) cup of the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the marshmallow creme. Cook and stir until melted and smooth; remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Add the cookie crumbs and powdered sugar and stir until combined.
  3. Press into the prepared pan in an even layer, spreading to edges of pan. Set aside.
  4. In a large, microwaveable bowl, combine the remaining semi-sweet chocolate chips and heavy cream and microwave for about 1 minute, stirring until chips are melted. Pour ganache over the bars and spread in an even layer. Top with crushed candy canes and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours or until set. Cut into bars and serve. Store in the fridge up to one week, covered.
