OK Alison Bastick, you little smarty pants…you were right. When I posted the picture of these the other day on Facebook, she knew straight away what they were. I confess I am somewhat of an American food tragic and despite the fact these are just good ole oreos dipped in chocolate, they remind me of days gone by, specifically in the Disney theme parks where they dip anything and everything in chocolate or caramel. They are too cute for a gift and my son ensures me that even though he knows what they are, they are much more yummy than he would have ever imagined. So there you go, the kids will love them. If you use the double stuffed oreos, (which I couldn’t find) they have less ‘numbers’ in them…go figure.
Book launch still has tickets. Not many now though, so if you are in Perth and would like to come and hang out, get online today and book your place. Delicious food, good company, organic wines, and goodie bags….plus of course, the first gander at Keeping it Simple with the chance to purchase on the night.
- 200 g white chocolate (Green and Blacks)
- 1 tbsp pure coconut oil
- 14 Oreo biscuits
- 2 peppermint candy canes, crushed
To crush candy canes, wrap an unwrapped candy cane or two in your Silpat bread mat and beat it up with a rolling pin or other blunt instrument. You will keep the pieces from flying all over your kitchen this way.
Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil
Dip the oreos in the chocolate and sprinkle them with the crushed candy canes.
