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:
|Mini OREO Birthday “Cakes”|
Prep Time: 30 min. plus refrigerating | Makes: 12 servings.
|What You Need|
|1||can (16 oz.) ready-to-spread white frosting, divided|
|1/4||cup multi-colored sprinkles|
|Place wire rack over sheet of parchment paper. Measure 1/2 cup frosting; spoon 1/4 tsp. onto top of each of 12 cookies. Cover with remaining cookies; press together gently to secure. Spread sides and tops of cookie stacks with remaining frosting (from 1/2 cup measure). Place on rack.|
|Spoon remaining frosting (from can) into microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 sec.; stir. Cool 2 min. Spoon 1/2 Tbsp. frosting over top of each cookie stack; repeat. Continue to spoon frosting over cookies until all frosting is used.|
|Top with sprinkles. Refrigerate 1 hour or until frosting is firm.|
Next up: Oreos on a Stick
Prep Time: 15 min. plus refrigerating | Makes: 12 servings.
|What You Need|
|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.|
Decorate cookies using sprinkles in the colors of your favorite sports team.
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?
