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.

    Love this idea! I’m from Louisiana and I make my own King Cakes! Got to try these during Mardi Gras season!

  13. 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.
