Huddle to Fight Hunger (Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Oreos)

The holidays can be so much fun. And they can be so distracting, too. In our efforts to buy presents and make treats, it’s easy to forget those who are less fortunate than ourselves. And as Lynn pointed out recently, there generally always is someone less fortunate.

Last year I went shopping at Walmart on the same evening that the Toys 4 Tots soldiers were standing guard, figuratively speaking, of course, at the doors. It was such a wonderful opportunity to say YES. The kids and I went through the toy aisles and chose as many quality toys that we could in a small budget that I determined on the spot.

The men were stunned when we dropped three bags in their box. Yes, stunned. That surprised me. Weren’t more people doing this? Regardless, it felt so good to be making even a small difference in someone else’s life.

Huddle to Fight Hunger

Recently, Kraft invited me to join their Huddle to Fight Hunger team. Over the next month, I’ll be sharing a variety of tailgate recipes (which can definitely double for holiday parties) featuring certain Kraft brands. Kraft will be donating 1000 meals to local food banks (up to 4000) for each recipe I share. So excited to be able to partner with them in this way!

You can hop over to Kraft’s facebook page for more details. For each “like” they receive is another meal for someone less fortunate. And you can specify that your free meal go to your local community. You’ll also have the opportunity to earn more meals to be given away by playing their facebook trivia game.

So, ready to huddle up?

Yes, my first play of the game is a little sweet. But, c’mon? Double chocolate oreos dipped in chocolate and sprinkled in extra deliciousness? Yes, please. These cookies are super easy to make and such a sweet treat to add to your next tailgating or holiday party. They’re so easy, your kids can make these cookies all by themselves! And they package up great to give as gifts.



This chocolate dipping can be performed on a number of other treats. My kids took off and dipped pretzel rods as well as marshmallows. Someone suggested potato chips.

What’s your favorite thing to dip in chocolate?

  1. Aren’t you cute, thinking those would actually make it out of the kitchen and to some event… yeah, right!

    Besides the cookies, pretzels, marshmallows, fruit, potato chips, I think I’ve seen chocolate popcorn but I’ve never made that one myself. I’ve learned that I tend to prefer the items only half-dipped rather then fully coated. You get a better chance to taste the flavor of both items, plus it is usually less messy to eat.

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to the Kraft facebook page. I played the trivia game and they donated 81 meals to our local foodbank. :)

  3. Strawberries are my favorite thing to dip in chocolate. Green Bay Packers Rock!

  4. My favorite thing to dip in chocolate? My finger…lol

  5. I know it’s not part of the Kraft recipe, but if you want to make your dipped Oreos rock even more, first dip the Oreos in mint chocolate (white chips tinted green with a little bit of your favorite mint flavoring – spearmint, peppermint, etc. – added), wait a few hours or a day for the first coat to harden, and then dip in the chocolate as described in your recipe. AWESOME!
