I have the perfect easy treat for a Monday… homemade chocolate-covered Oreos!
I made these about a month ago and they are so addictive. I’m not one of those people where things are “too rich” (I mean, things can be rich, but how could they ever be too rich?) so I could probably eat twenty of these in a sitting if I let myself. I’m also not one of those people that can have just regular Oreos sitting in the house just to have them… I will eat the entire package by myself, so I only buy them when I have accepted the full consequences. :)
Full disclosure, I’m on an elimination diet right now to try to figure out what food allergies (if any) that baby Jack has. So I am salivating like a maniac while I write this post. I’m currently eliminating dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, and nuts — it’s super hard, but for a good cause. I started eliminating basically the day after I made these delicious cookies, so at least I went out with a bang! I just hope we can come to some conclusions about what’s going on with the little guy. When this is all over I’m so making these again for myself as a reward. :)
Ok, back to Oreos!
1 package of Oreos
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Step 1. Melt the chocolate. I like to melt all of my chocolate over hot water on the stove. I think it’s the very best way to get the most even and smooth result. I just hate using the microwave and doing 5 seconds at a time and risking burning the chocolate (especially white chocolate, it’s a tough one). I just use a glass bowl over a pot to make a double burner and I continuously stir the chocolate until it’s melted. I start out on medium-high to get it going and then I turn it down once it starts to really heat up, you don’t want to let the water underneath boil. It takes about 5 minutes or so to get it all melted.
Step 2. Dip the Oreos. I did some half milk chocolate, half white chocolate and then some that were milk chocolate with a white chocolate drizzle on top. Just melt one of the types of chocolate first and dip half, then let the cookies dry on a parchment lined cookie sheet before you melt the other type of chocolate and dip the other half.
Step 3. When all of the dipping is done place the cookie sheet in the freezer to harden the chocolate.
Step 4. Eat them. :)
Obviously not everyone is going to crazy out like me and gobble them up in a day and a half, so I think the best place to store these is in a container in the freezer. They are delicious frozen and if that’s not your thing they thaw out in about 5 minutes on the counter and this keeps them nice and fresh.
Mmmm. Happy eating! Anyone else suffering on an elimination diet right now? I feel for ya. :)
