Here is another quick and easy semi-homemade Christmas treat for you...I made these after the kids did the Nutter Butter Santa cookies. From start to finish, these take less than one half-hour to do an entire package of cookies. Definitely something you can add to your last minute list of things to do.
You will need:
A package of sandwich cookies, such as Oreos or Newman's O's*
1 bag of Dark Chocolate Candy Melts by Wilton's (I got mine at JoAnn's for $2.39/bag).
1 microwave safe bowl (glass).
1 slotted spoon.
More of the Vanilla Bark or White Chocolate left over from this morning's Nutter Butter Santas.
1 Squeeze Bottle
Lay out parchment paper or a silpat.
Open your package of cookies. If necessary, sample a cookie straight from the bag. (My kids say this is necessary...I'm not so sure!)
Place a cookie in the melted chocolate and coat.
Ta Da! You're done. Not bad for some festive holiday goodness, wouldn't you say? (You could always add food coloring to the vanilla bark/white chocolate, but I think they're pretty enough just the way they are, so I don't add that step.)
* I use the plain wrap brand from Walgreen's. $2 a bag and no HFCS.
