Chocolate Covered Oreos - Simple, Delicious, Impressive

Another bake sale tomorrow, final one of the year.  This time I'm taking an old favourite, OREOs and giving them a little boost with chocolate and sprinkles.  Who doesn't like sprinkles?

I found these Anniversary OREOs at the grocery store.  They have sprinkles in the icing.  I thought they'd be the perfect foundation for my treat.

Ingredients:

  • OREOs
  • chocolate
  • sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or on low heat in the microwave.  Be sure to watch it because burned chocolate is awful.
  2. Dip an oreo into the chocolate one at a time.  I use a fork to dip it and a spatula to help spread the chocolate and remove excess.
  3. Generously top one side of the OREO with sprinkles.  Place sprinkle side down on parchmount paper.  Add sprinkles to the other side.
  4. Let them cool and harden.

This recipe is simple and pretty quick to make but I must admit that I had a collosal fail making mine. You might have been wondering why the before photo shows red and white melting chocolate but the final product is milk chocolate.  The truth is that I inadvertantly splashed water in the melted white chocolate which immediately ruined it and the red melts just wouldn't melt.   They were left over from a previous recipe, perhaps they were too old.  Anyway, milk chocolate is tried and true and always in my pantry.  Try making some for your next party!
