Now that school has started, if you’re anything like me, you are in full-fledged birthday season. For us, birthday season is always in the fall and always tons of fun! With it comes the opportunity to bring a treat to your kids’ school. My kids’ school has requested that we not send cupcakes as the birthday treat because of how messy they are. So last year, for both of my preschoolers, I sent them with chocolate covered Oreos. I know that sounds even messier than cupcakes, but I promise its not! These are super easy, very cost-effective, adorably cute and SO good!!
Both sets of teachers thanked me for the clean snack and asked how I made them. Its really no secret, so here she goes!
- 1 package of Oreos
- 1 package of white chocolate bark (found in the baking aisle, also called Almond Bark)
- Cookie sheet
- Glass bowl (not ceramic, not plastic – only glass)
- Parchment paper or wax paper
- First, line your cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.
- Break off about 4-6 chocolate bark cubes and place them in the glass bowl. (It’s crucial that you use glass and no other material – if you use anything else, you’ll end up cooking the chocolate instead of melting it and it will be terribly chunky.)
- Melt the chocolate bark following the directions on the package – usually 30-45 second increments, stirring between.
- Once the chocolate bark is melted and stirred to smooth it out, dip half of an Oreo into the chocolate and immediately place on the parchment or wax paper. Before the chocolate bark dries, decorate with sprinkles!
ALL of these steps, aside from using the microwave for some ages, are 100% kid- friendly. There are variations, too – you could dip the entire Oreo in the chocolate to completely cover it, or just roll the edges in the chocolate – or even put them on a lollipop stick! Best of all – they’re cute and easy and delicious! Oops – caught in the act! Enjoy!
Yum Yum, I’ll be making these pronto!
