The husband is typically a very helpful guy.
One way that he is NOT helpful is when he finds new dessert ideas as they surface in his Facebook feed. Then he gets a snow day off of work.
Then this happens: OREO. PEANUT BUTTER CUP. MADNESS.
These delectable desserts are absolutely mouthwatering. They are also incredibly sweet – making it impossible for me to eat more than one at a time. They are just as easy (if not easier) than whipping up a batch of cookies, so don’t be intimidated.
The awesome thing about any dessert that you dip in chocolate is that you can change up the toppings to reflect the current season or holiday. Throw a few in a clear bag or tin and you have an instant gift.
You will need:
- Chocolate Melting Chips (we tend to use Wilton brand or chocolate bark from ALDI)
- Oreo Cookies
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (the larger size)
- Toppings (optional)
How to make:
Place the chocolate in your melter. I love my Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot. I bought it almost 3 years ago, it’s a great little tool – I use it often!
As you wait for the chocolate to melt, you can prepare your cookie concoctions.
First, you need an Oreo.
Gently lift the top off of the Oreo, leaving as much of the filling intact as possible. I didn’t do a perfect job with this one. LOL
Put a peanut butter cup on top of the cookie’s filling and then put the cookie top back in place.
As soon as your chocolate has completely melted, you are ready!
We tried dipping the cookie/pb cup combo but ran into difficultly because it was so large/bulky. So instead of dipping, we placed each cookie on a big piece of wax paper and drizzled chocolate on top and over the sides.
At this point the cookies sat on the wax paper until the chocolate had hardened. Then we flipped them over and covered the bottoms with chocolate.
Now it’s time to add the toppings!
Our toppings were super simple… on some we drizzled white chocolate. On others we used leftover Christmas candy canes that we crushed and sprinkled on top. On the last few we placed several M&Ms.
And if you think they look good from the outside…
Take a look at the inside!
Oh! Em! Gee!
And guess what?
They taste every bit as good as they look. Maybe even better. ;)
