Chocolate Covered Oreos

Back in grade school, nothing made the school day more exciting than a classmate’s birthday. Because birthdays always meant one, glorious thing: homemade baked goods. Some classmates brought the classic funfetti cupcakes, perfect in their homemade imperfections. Others brought fancy store bought cookies, neatly packaged and ever so sweet. I of course insisted on being a part of the baking of my birthday treat. I scoured my mom’s baking books & cooking magazines in order to find a new creation each year. But the birthday I always looked forward to the most wasn’t my own. It was my oldest friend Annie’s. Annie’s birthday is a few weeks before Christmas and every year she brought her mom’s homemade, yet perfectly packaged Chocolate Covered Oreos. Annie’s mom placed tiny Christmas themed sugar candies atop each velvety smooth chocolate cookie. And these cookies were always as delicious as they looked. So today I’m recreating Annie’s delicious birthday treats for all of you. And you can’t really beat the short ingredient list. Oreos, Chocolate & a little time and you have a delicious dessert in mere minutes. Enjoy!
