For the Filling:

Halfof 10 oz. bagHershey's Candy Cane Kissesabout 25 Kisses
For the Oreo Crust
1(14.3 oz.)package Oreo Cookies
Combine marshmallows, peppermint extract and milk in a large saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until marshmallows are completely melted, about 7 minutes. If necessary, use a whisk at the end to get rid of any lumps. (If using a nonstick pan, scrape the bottom continuously and less cooking time may be required!)
Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. SET YOUR TIMER. Do not go over 30 minutes.
While the marshmallow mixture is cooling, quickly unwrap and finely chop the Hershey's Kisses. Prepare the Oreo crust (see next step).
Place the Oreo cookies in a sealed zipper bag. Crush with a rolling pin.** Transfer crushed Oreos into a 9x13 pan and mix in the melted butter. Spread into an even layer.
Remove the chilled marshmallow mixture from fridge and fold in the Cool Whip. Gently stir in the chopped Kisses. Spread mixture evenly over top the Oreo crust. Garnish with Christmas sprinkles, optional.
Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, or until set. Can be made the day ahead.
**Alternatively, you may crush the Oreo cookies by pulsing in a blender. This will result in a finer crushed cookie crust.
