This is one of those silly why-didn’t-I-think-of it things that is quick and simple to make and always a crowd pleaser.
So in case you didn’t think of it … here we are.
Chocolate covered Oreos have kind of become a thing with us over the past few years. We make rainbow colored ones for our End of School Rainbow Cake Party. I have made girly colors for a Barbie Princess & the Pop Star Party. And still others beyond that.
Because they are simple. Everyone loves them. And it’s the perfect sweet treat to add to any party, holiday, or just because celebration.
And this weekend? We upped the ante and added sprinkles.
Three simple ingredients.
A package of Oreos.
A package of Candy Melts (from Wilton, found at Wal-Mart and most craft supply stores, and sometimes even Target)
A container of sprinkles
I pour half the bag of candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and melt it for 25 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until it’s smooth and nearly melted. It takes about four cycles, but you can’t just put it in for a full minute because the chocolate will burn and then you’re right back at the beginning. Trust me.
Dip the Oreos in the bowl of melted candy melts one at a time, carefully flipping it over to make sure it’s completely covered. Dip one end of the cookies in the sprinkles and then lay it flat on a piece of wax paper so it sets up.
Continue until you have as many as you want.
For one whole package of candy melts, it’s nearly two rows of Oreos from a package, and all of the sprinkles, yielding roughly 25 cookies.
They don’t last long. I sent a few up the street with a small tray of homemade pasta shells. Gave away a few to a friend at the bus stop. The kids had one for dessert on Sunday, and what’s left will be gone by the end of the week.
When I asked Nick if the cookie was good, he looked at me and said “Mom, what do you think? It’s chocolate.”
So there you go.
Perfect thing to send in to those classroom holiday parties next week, for a little at-home Halloween fete, and any other occasion, holiday, or whim in between.
