~~~CHOCOLATE DIPPED OREO COOKIES~~~ Romantic Valentine Treats~

~CHOCOLATE DIPPED OREOS~

One of the things I absolutely LOVE about Valentine's Day is that it's a lovely excuse for all you non-pink-lovin'-gals to embrace my favorite color...:) :) :)

I simply LOVE making dainty Valentine Treats!  Ever since elementary school and my beautiful Mother was my die-hard Room Mother (year after year after year), I've been in love with jazzing-up pre-made goodies easily found at local markets.  When I was in 4th grade my Mom frosted Scooter Pies (Moon Pies) and then decorated them with the names of the kids in my class (complete with pink roses and all).  To this day her talent (and ideas!) amaze me and I will forever believe I learned from the best.
(Thank you, Mom!  You are my hero!)
  ~REGULAR OREO COOKIES~

Anyway...this year my Miss K and I decided to dip regular Oreo Cookies in white chocolate and then decorate them up all fancy-like!
~EASILY DIPPED COOKIES~

(We like fancy around here!)
~MICROWAVEABLE CANDY WAFERS~

The Oreo Cookies were coated in white chocolate (one half at a time) and allowed to cool.  We then decided to grate a bar of white chocolate and sprinkle some of the shavings on the top of each cookie.
 
 ~ SHAVED WHITE CHOCOLATE~
~TOTALLY SWEET and YUMMY~

Tiny silver candy balls  (nonpareils) are a must!
~TOTALLY DIVINE!~ 

The tops were decorated with pink roses and minty green leaves made with Royal Icing and then sweetly cello-bagged in pairs! 
~TWO BY TWO~

Hope you enjoyed a little peek into the latest project with my Miss K!  It was soo much fun and absolutely NO BAKING!

Hope you are having an awesome day!

Love to you...

These are so good looking, what an excellent idea! Somebody will be so happy to receive these on Valentine's Day! Bon Apetit!

Those are beautiful....I have seen them dipped in milk chocolate but NEVER like this! They are too pretty to eat! lol The other one we always do at Christmas is two Ritz crackers with a teaspoon of peanut butter spead between them and then dipped in the chocolate...but they would NEVER be this pretty. Like YOU learned from YOUR Mama...your little MissK is learning from you ... and you are both blessed by that! Love to you sweet Rebecca- Diana

This is such a wonderful idea - they are absolutely lovely!!! I am definitely going to make these especially since Oreos happen to be a favorite of mine.

Carol said...

Now this is just the greatest idea.
My Ms. Alexey has friends that are always surprising her with gifts from their talents. This is a great way to say "I really enjoy your friendship" and who can refuse an OREO?

Thanks for the tutorial and I am hoping I can be successful on this presentation.

Dearest Rebecca,

We might be kindred spirits as we both got into making/baking cookies and using a matelasse underground. Mine is one with roses.
I'm tired and need to go to bed now. Sending lots of love your way and hope you both are feeling well.

Oh Rebecca,
What a lovely way to spend a special time with Miss K. And they are just so beautiful and look scrumptious. I didn't know you could make icing roses too!!!! They are just beautiful. I will have to try that. Wonder if you could do that to rice cakes, me being on a diet and all, LOL! Just kidding.
Enjoy our last warm days for a while. Love you sweety.
