Chocolate Dipped Valentine’s Day Cookies
Are you looking for an easy, inexpensive and no-bake Valentine’s Day treat? In the same tradition as Christmas snowmen and Halloween ghosts, I dipped Oreos in milk and white chocolate, and added royal icing hearts and flowers for Valentine’s Day. I was trying to come up with a way to use Nutter Butters for a Valentine’s Day treat, but I couldn’t come up with anything except an infinity symbol, and that isn’t generally considered a Valentine’s Day theme. So, I chose Oreos to dip.
I used Golden Oreos for the milk chocolate and regular Oreos for the white chocolate. One package of Wilton candy coating will cover a package of Oreos with some leftover cookies. My kids love these cookies, and they love to help decorate them for whichever holiday we are celebrating.
I am excited to be participating in Masterpiece Monday over at Boogieboard Cottage. Check out Mary’s blog for some great decorating ideas!
