The bonus is...you can eat a plain double stuffed Oreo, and say you're sampling the product. Hello! I'm in. I couldn't even remember the last time I'd had a double stuffed Oreo...ya those are good...tempting to eat more than one...let's just leave it at that.
I found the hardest part of this recipe to be dunking the Oreo's with a Reese's peanut butter cup wedged in the middle in a bowl of melted chocolate...I mean seriously...I need advice on how to not buy 10 zillion pounds of chocolate and feel like I'm wasting half of it trying to dip, dunk, or pour to cover anything. Advice anyone?
In the beginning of my stumbling upon food bloggers, I stumbled upon Shelly over at Cookies & Cups, let's just say that I've added quite a few of her creations to my ever expanding to do list of recipes that I keep finding. It's honestly a sickness if you love to cook, all these amazing food bloggers out there, I mean seriously!
|clearly I can dunk them in chocolate, My chocolate to item ratio is not appropriate though|
I'll be honest in stating, I did exactly what she started out the post saying, buy golden Oreos and stuff those too. I did. They were tasty. It's easy to give suggestions when someone is willing to try new things.
Reese's Stuffed Oreo's
Reese's cups (full size) my suggestion get more than you possibly think you'll need
Oreo's I used Double Stuff and Golden Oreo's (with chocolate in the middle)
Chocolate pieces out of laziness I grabbed those cups you can melt in the microwave
First, we put our Oreo's through a rigorous mid section workout or core workout, aka lets twist those puppies apart. Attempting to keep most of the filling on one side; this is easier said than done however, just sayin. As you separate the sides you can figure out what you're going to do with the naked pieces. I went ahead and started putting the naked sides into baggies so I could save them for a cheesecake crust.
I was prepared to make the entire bag of Golden Oreo's and Double Stuff Oreo's into glorious piles of chocolate concoctions...however, the dipping and chocolate was killing me. I mean lets be honest it's not like dipping strawberries or half of a pretzel.
Once you've gotten even amounts of stuffing sides to sandwich on a Reese's, start making those happy little towers. Do not use a ton of pressure when squeezing the two sides of the Oreo to the Reese's cup. I used a bit too much pressure on one, first attempt, and squished the Reese's cup a bit more than I intended to.
Now honestly, she says 5 minutes, she's a much more skilled dipper of items into chocolate than I am, so set aside some time to dip if you're not skilled like me...
|We ended up having to cut them in quarters because one was too much for our family|
***Honestly, the only idea I've had since making these was using the Golden Oreo's sandwiching between a White Chocolate Reese's Cup and then dipping in White Chocolate. Yum! For those who love white chocolate could be a real treat!
****Before I even attempt to do Chocolate dunking again soon, I'll be going to some dipping 101 training first.
