Chocolate Dipped Oreos

I’ve been thinking that I didn’t want to get into all the handmade projects from the party (and there are TONS!) until I get a chance to show you the whole party at once, but a silent blog just won’t do. So, I have another sweet treat for you, chocolate dipped Oreos. I can’t decide what I liked best about these… how yummy they are, how easy they were to make, or how great they looked on the dessert table! Here’s what you need to know:

There are a few options for chocolate you can melt to dip these in. I purchased the Wilton chips that come in a bag first, but then stumbled onto this package of Candiquik at the grocery store. It comes with a microwavable tray and it worked perfectly, I definitely recommend it!

It wasn’t quite as easy to find the sanding sugar I needed to add a pop of color to the cookies. The grocery store only had packages of sugar in a variety of colors, or in Christmas colors. Lucky for me, Williams Sonoma is just a hop, skip, and a bridge away. The have really beautiful colors to choose from, but they only come in relatively large amounts… so you’ll have an excuse to do more baking & use up all that left over sparkly sweetness.

That’s it, just three ingredients: Oreos, Candiquik (you’ll need two packages per package of Oreos), & sanding sugar. The only other things you need are a brush (I used a basting brush but you could also use a new clean paint brush), a fork, and some wax paper.

Step 1: Brush the Oreos off. Yes you really should do this step! Brushing each side of the Oreo and the edge will ensure you don’t get little chocolate bits/dust in your pristinely white melted chocolate.

Step 2: Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the package.

Step 3: Put an Oreo in the melted chocolate and using a fork, scoop the chocolate over the top of the Oreo to cover the entire thing. Scoop the Oreo up with the fork, swirl it around a little so that the chocolate smooths out, and run the fork against the edge of the tray to remove the excess chocolate.

Step 4: Place the dipped cookie on wax paper. Sprinkle a tiny pinch of sanding sugar over the top of the cookie and let dry.

Seriously. Seriously. Yummy!!

Pictures of the finished project coming soon... hopefully!
