25 Days of Cookies: 12 Chocolate Covered Oreo's

My son loves Oreo's or "coookeys" as he calls them, while pointing to the cabinet we keep them in. What to do when something is great... make it even better with chocolate. I've been wanting to make chocolate covered Oreo's for quite a while. I thought they would make a lovely teacher's present. What could be better than snowman ones?

What you need:
8 oz of melting white chocolate
24 or so Oreo's
24 candy corns for the noses
48 Chocolate Chips for eyes
Food dye markers

What you do:
1. Set up your assembly line. You will need a place for the melted chocolate, the decorations, and a wax or parchment lined sheet pan to deposit the Oreo's once dipped.
2. In a double boiler or the microwave melt the white chocolate, stirring vigorously. It is usually more melted then it looks.
3. Dip the Oreo's using two forks lift out of the chocolate and try gently to knock off any excess chocolate.
4. While the chocolate is still melted, decorate with eyes and nose.
5. Once completely cool, draw on the smiles
6. Serve with love and thank you to your children's teachers. For they are saints...

As always, much love, many blessings, and Happy Christmas!!!!
