Its that time of year that everyone is talking about Mardi Gras. Being from Alabama I always get caught in the discussion of where Mardi Gras originated, Mobile or New Orleans. I sadly have never been to either but its on my bucket list. All the beautiful floats and everyone having fun sounds like a great time to me. Whichever one you call home these Mardi Gras Oreos are delicious and easy to make! They are perfect for holiday recipes. Everyone loves gold sparkles especially when they taste as good as these do.
12 double-stuffed Oreos
2 T solid shortening
1 cup Wilton lavender chocolate melts
1 cup Wilton vibrant green chocolate melts
Wilton gold sugar sprinkles
2 cookie/candy molds (6 on each sheet) (COOKIE MOLD)
1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
2. In a double boiler pan, melt 1 tablespoon solid shortening.
3. Add 1 cup purple chocolate melts to the shortening and stir until completely melted.
4. Pour 1 T of the melted chocolate into each mold to cover the bottom entirely.
5. Place an Oreo into each mold, on top of the melted chocolate.
6. Using a Tablespoon, pour more melted chocolate on top of the Oreo until the mold is full.
7. Refrigerate for one hour.
8. Repeat steps 2-7 using 1 T solid shortening and vibrant green chocolate melts.
9. Remove candy molds from refrigerator after one hour.
10. Gently press down on the molds to lift the cookies out onto the baking sheet.
11. Sprinkle each cookie with gold sugar crystal sprinkles.

Oh, yum. I had gourmet chocolate covered Oreos several years ago at an event. That was back before people made them at home. They were to-die for. Never occurred to me that I could actually make them. (Thank goodness… otherwise I would be much heavier!) Thanks for the tips on how to do it the next time we have a special occasion.
And then I’ll make them in Halloween colors.
They look amazing
