When my boyfriend brought me loads of extra Dairy Milk for Christmas, I knew what had to be done…
CHOCOLATE COVERED OREOS.
Background: As a child, I would look forward to christmas parties at friends’ places, solely for the prospect of 1) getting to hang out with my friends 2) getting to do hands-on activities 3) eating loads of junk food.
On the rare occasion, that we got to melt chocolate, dip treats into them, and anxiously wait until they dried, it was a combination of all three. Basically, every child’s dream.
Present Day: For the past couple of days, I’ve been super excited at the idea of doing this at home all on my own…
When I was younger, I wouldn’t really be encouraged to do things in the kitchen, mostly because I was clumsy. I haven’t lost all my clumsy, but I think the consolation prize for my parents is that I can clean up messes on my own. In my mind, I’m a grown woman and I do what I want. 😉
So although many of you have probably accomplished this in your lives, it doesn’t hurt to share my experience doing it. Now does it?
What you need:
- a sheet of wax paper
- 4 oreos
- Quarter of a chocolate bar (i.e. 8 squares from a 200g Dairy Milk)
- a spoon
- a bowl
- a microwave
- Break up the milk chocolate into the smallest pieces you can manage
- Place chocolate in bowl
- Microwave in 12-15 second spurts & mix well after each stint until chocolate is completely melted (I only had to do warm it up for a total of 45 seconds)
- Drop your oreo in the bowl and swirl it around.
- Flip it with the spoon.
- Spoon chocolate to cover any sides that have been missed.
- Take the fully chocolate-covered oreo and stick it on the sheet of wax paper.
- After you have completed all of the covering, either be patient and wait for them to dry, or stick them in some tupperware and pop that in the fridge.
- When the chocolate is solid, ENJOY!
