I love me a cute themed dessert, but I’m not the best when it comes to neatly decorating such items. I’m a pretty sloppy cake decorator, and definitely terrible when it comes to frosting cookies and cupcakes. Maybe its all the coffee I drink, but I would not consider myself to have a steady hand. I’d like to get better, so I just keep on making things and doing my best. However, sometimes the results are pretty hilarious.
I thought it seemed pretty easy to make. Plus, it would give me practice at something else I totally suck at, which is dipping things in chocolate. I always make a gigantic mess, I’m not sure why. In related news, never ask me to paint walls or trim in a house. Again, I make a ridiculous mess no matter how hard I try. Splatter everywhere. Same with the chocolate. Still, I was willing to give it a go. Besides, I had candy sticks taking up room in my pantry, so I wanted to use them up.
Well, let’s just say they didn’t look exactly like the original
This was my best one! Kind of reminds me of another fabulous Pinterest post
HAHAHAHAHA! Love that one! Let’s also not mention the HUGE mess I made all over the kitchen. So, listen to this. To begin with, I dumped a bag of white chocolate chips into the double boiler to melt. They got soft, did not melt, but turned into this squishy, playdoh-like lump. I switched them to a (what I thought was) microwave safe bowl and tried to melt them that way. Instead, one spot of the lump caught on fire, and my glass bowl cracked in the microwave!!
Totally weird. I went back to the store to get some more, and upgraded to Ghirardelli chips. These melted enough to coat the oreos in the recipe, but not really enough to be easy to work with. After tweeting my mishaps, my lovely twitter followers informed me that using white chocolate bars is a better option then chips when it comes to melting. Thanks tweeps! I totally blame the chocolate chips for the reject-lookingness of these treats. Hey, whatever. They still taste good! Onward and upward!
