These Peppermint Patty Bars are sponsored in conjunction with Christmas Cookies Week. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the Christmas Cookies Week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Rich and decadent layers of cookies, creamy peppermint filling and semi sweet chocolate make these Peppermint Patty Bars a mint lovers dream!
If you love Peppermint, you’ve gotta try these Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Cookie Cups
If I’m being honest, York Peppermint Patties are my all time favorite candy and have been since I was as little girl.
Peppermint is one of my favorite flavors and I look forward to this time of year all year-long.
From the candles in my home, to the flavor in my coffee, everything in December screams Peppermint.
So when it was time to come up with recipes for #ChristmasCookie week, making these Peppermint Patty Bars was a no brainer.
These Peppermint Patty Bars might be my all time favorite dessert on the blog.
No I’m biased because I love peppermint but these are freaking something special.
The crust is Oreo cookies so you know it’s going to be good.
Also, have you tried the Peppermint Bark OREOs?! ZOMG! Heaven.
I substituted half a package of peppermint bark OREOs for the regular pack but when you read the recipe, I didn’t specify that because I want this recipe to stand the test of time and I’m not sure if the Peppermint Bark OREOs will be around forever.
However, there is plenty of peppermint flavor in just the middle white layer so it is NOT necessary to use peppermint OREOS in the cookie layer.
But if you’re feeling extra like I was, DO IT!
These Peppermint Patty Bars are rich, decadent and a Peppermint Lovers Dream.

This post is sponsored on behalf of #ChristmasCookiesWeek. The generous sponsors, YumGoggle, Sprinkle Pop, Silpat and Adams Extracts have provided us with products for recipe creation and a giveaway for our readers. As always, all opinions are my own.
Prize Package #1:
From Adams Extracts comes a selection of baking delights including their prize-winning pound cake mix, pure vanilla extract, pure peppermint extract, double strength pure vanilla extract, pound cake flavor extract and vanilla cinnamon sugar.
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla was sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams, whose imagination was stirred by his wife’s yearning for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out, announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted.
