I’m old enough to remember a time in which the only “limited edition” Oreos available were those that emerged in mid-September double-stuffed with orange (in color never in flavor) creme.
Orange is my favorite hue and Halloween, my favorite holiday. How could I not lust after these heavily processed yet insanely delicious cookies?
Each year I purchase a family-size package (hey, I have a husband and two cats—that counts as a clan) and nosh all month long. This year, I put aside a few cookies to make some chocolate-covered cookie sammies. Hey, not every recipe has to involve a lot of heavy-lifting.
Halloween Oreos (or generic Halloween-theme chocolate cookie sandwiches if you have no soul)
Melting chocolate (chocolate chips or bar)
Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.
Melt chocolate in microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals. Make sure bowl is absolutely devoid of any water or else chocolate will ‘seize up’ and fail to melt smoothly.
Dunk Halloween Oreos one by one in melted chocolate and place on wax paper.
Decorate immediately with theme sprinkles.
Cool in fridge until chocolate is hardened.
