Recipe 14 Day14
Chocolate covered Oreos (via bakingdom.com)
I actually made these for Noah's Valentines day party at school. They were very cute and sweet. They don't only have to be for Valentines day these are also perfect for parties of all themes.
All you need is a package of Oreos, a bag of semisweet, white, or milk chocolate chips or candy melts, and sprinkles! I used different sanding sugars, tiny heart shaped sprinkles, and mini chocolate chips to decorate mine, but you don’t need any decorations at all…they’re just for fun!
These will only take as long as you want to to spend on decorating them. Just line two baking sheets with parchment or wax paper and melt the chocolate or candy melts in the microwave or a double boiler. When dipping the cookies, you can either use your fingers or you can use toothpicks. I used both techniques; they’re both easy and have pros and cons, so experiment to see what works best for you.
If using toothpicks, insert a toothpick into the filling between the cookie halves. Dip the cookie into the melted candy and gently swirl it around to get it completely coated. Lift the cookie out of the chocolate and hold it over the bowl while you tap your wrist to remove excess candy. Lay the cookie flat on the prepared cookie sheet and use one finger to hold it in place while you gently pull the pick from the cookie. If it leaves a hole in the candy, just dip the toothpick in the melted candy and patch the hole.
If using your fingers, follow the same steps for dipping. After tapping excess candy off and placing the cookie on the sheet, dip you finger in the candy and patch the small area on top of the cookie where your finger was.
