As I have discovered this month, sometimes the best things to come out of the kitchen happen as a result of keeping things simple. From miniaturizing banoffee pie in less than 6 steps to DIY takes on classic snacks to surprisingly simple homemade Reese's peanut butter eggs, my March has been filled with tasty treats without a lot of hassle. In keeping with this theme, I thought I'd end the month with another holiday treat that's quick to make, adorable to look at and (best of all!) a fun way to get your kids into the kitchen with you: Chocolate Covered Oreo Chicks for Easter!
And because the all-pictures banoffee pie post was a hit, I thought I'd also show you these chocolate covered oreo chicks in pictures. They're just that easy to make! Read on for the recipe & instructions...
Chocolate Covered Oreo Chicks Recipe
- Approximately 1-2 cups white chocolate (I used chocolate melts, but feel free to use your favorite white chocolate. You can also use colored candy melts in yellow and orange.) -Oil-Based Candy Coloring((this is important!! Regular drop food coloring and gel food coloring is water-based and will seize the chocolate!)) -Chocolate Covered Oreo Mold, optional (like this one. Alternatively, you can dip each oreo in the yellow white chocolate and smooth with an off set spatula) -Small sandwich bag with a small piece of the corner cut off (this will act as a makeshift piping bag for piping the beak) -Toothpick (for the eyes)
