Take cookies and brownies to a new level by dunking or drizzling on this yummy minty glaze. They taste better and look instantly elegant and festive.
1 (12 oz) bag or 2 cups baking chips (white chocolate chips or white/vanilla baking chips)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon peppermint flavored oil or 1/2 teaspoon 100% peppermint oil (make sure it is food grade peppermint oil; do not use peppermint extract)
green oil-based candy coloring (optional) -- for coloring white dipping chocolate
decorating sprinkles (optional)
Put white chips in a microwave-safe bowl with canola oil and peppermint oil. Stir. Cook on full power, checking at 20 second intervals, stirring each time. Stop heating when most, but not all, of the chips are melted--there should be a few chunks left. Stir until it is smooth and chips are completely melted. (Approx. 60 sec. total cooking time.) Be careful not to overcook. Stir in candy coloring, if using. Dip cookies in melted mixture or drizzle on. Place on waxed or parchment paper. Scatter on sprinkles, if desired. After coating hardens, store in airtight container.
