Oreo Cookies Celebrates 100 Years, So Bring Oreos to Your Wedding!

It’s Oreo’s 100th birthday this year! Did you know that the very first Oreo cookie was sold in Hoboken? We’re proud to call this fabulous black and white cookie classic our own, here in New Jersey, and to celebrate its 100th birthday, I thought about the different ways that the Oreo can be used in your wedding and pre-wedding parties plans.

You know that I love Li-Lac Chocolates’ chocolate-covered Oreos:

And I just saw this on Pinterest, from It’s a Bride’s Life:

The fabulous folks at Kraft Foods just sent me a fabulous collection of fun and festive Oreo cookie recipes, and I picked this one out as my favorite:

12 OREO Cookies
1 pkg. (6 squares) BAKER’S White Chocolate, melted
1 tsp. canola oil
1/4 cup multi-colored or chocolate sprinkles

Insert wooden   pop stick into filling in center of each cookie; place on waxed paper-covered   rimmed baking sheet. Freeze 10 min.
Mix melted   chocolate and oil until blended. Dip cookies, 1 at a time, in chocolate   mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each. Return to baking sheet.   Top with sprinkles.
Refrigerate 30   min. or until chocolate coating is firm.

Special Extra:
Decorate cookies using sprinkles in the colors of your favorite sports team.

Variation:
For variety, dip only 1 side of some of the cookie pops in melted chocolate before coating with sprinkles.

What are your favorite ways to use Oreos as fun desserts? Chocolate-dipped? As favors? In guest welcome bags? As dessert toppers? Set on top of a chocolate milk shot at the end of your wedding?
