We celebrated Christmas with my husband’s family but my family’s celebration was postponed due to the flu making the rounds. Our “Christmas” was rescheduled for this past weekend since Monday was a holiday and the kids were out of school.
I broke out the Winter Oreos I picked up in December for our celebration, and to have a little Winter Oreo Fun for my nephews & niece~
Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, we had a little Valentine’s Oreo celebration too.
Oreos are dipped in CandiQuik, melted according to the package directions, and given a quick and snowy white coating of chocolate.
The CandiQuik sets up quickly, hence the name :) so you have to work fast to attach the chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth, or melt some chips to attach them after the white chocolate coating is set up.
I used orange Wilton Candy Melts left from Halloween, piped on after the candy coating is firm, for carrot noses.
A no bake frosty treat for kids~
There are 30 Oreos in a package so I also
made some Valentine Oreo Brownies~
I used the same procedure as with my Halloween Oreo Brownies, dunking the Oreo in brownie batter, baking in a muffin tin sprayed liberally with cooking spray. Betty Crocker’s Fudge Brownie Mix cooked a little quicker than my favorite, go-to brownie mix, Ghirardelli, and made for a smoother brownie layer. A family size brownie mix will also be enough batter for an entire package of 30 Oreos.
My brownies baked in about 10 minutes at 350 degrees~ but could take as long as 15 minutes depending on your oven, just test for doneness with a toothpick.
I let the brownies cool in the pan and then put the pan in the refrigerator for 20 minutes for easier removal.
I used Wilton Candy Melts in pink & red to drizzle on a little decoration and attach some sprinkles~
A quick and easy treat for Valentine’s Day!
The Winter Edition Oreos are no longer available in stores, but I saw the pink creme center ones~ Berry Burst Ice Cream, in Target a few days ago.
Dear Nabisco, Please consider having your Winter Edition Oreos available through Valentine’s Day, since the weather is perfectly frosty outside and it’s technically still winter :)
Any Oreo wrapped inside a fudgy brownie layer is a happy little package to unwrap for Valentine’s Day!
