White Chocolate Dipped Oreos
I’ve been sort of obsessed with dipping things in chocolate lately. Partly because chocolate is yummy and partly because I think everything looks so much prettier dipped in chocolate and drizzled with more chocolate. These white chocolate dipped Oreos are just that, Oreo cookies dipped in white chocolate… nothing fancy. I made them for the Super Bowl party we went to yesterday along with mini tacos (a stolen recipe from my friend, Ines) and white truffle oil and gruyere macaroni balls which I unfortunately didn’t take photographs of. The two latter dishes had to be assembled onsite and it’s kind of strange to be at a party photographing your food so I opted out. There were a few leftover macaroni balls that we brought home with us so if I get the chance, I’ll photograph them this week just for show. For the dipped Oreos, I recommend double stuffed. Melt your chocolate in a double boiler and dip each cookie using dipping tongs or a fork, shake off any excess chocolate and place on wax or parchment paper. You can either add sprinkles, nuts, etc. while the chocolate is still gooey or you can wait until it’s hardened to add (in this case) milk/dark chocolate drizzles.
While these were tasty, I don’t think I could (or should) eat more than one, the white chocolate is far too sweet for me. Maybe making them with semi-sweet or dark chocolate would be better for my palette. At any rate, enjoy!
