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.

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.

Ingredients
  • 1 10- ounce package dark chocolate chips

  • 48 chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
  • colored sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium glass mixing bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the shortening until both are well combined.
  3. If using cookies, slip a toothpick into the center of the filling of one Oreo cookie. Holding the cookie by the toothpick, dip the cookie into the melted chocolate. Allow any excess to drip off and place the dipped cookie onto the prepared sheet. Sprinkle with the colored sprinkles.
  4. Allow the dipped treats to sit until the chocolate is completely set. Then remove from the sheet and store in an airtight container, layered between waxed paper.

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?

    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.

    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!

    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!

      It wasn’t Kraft’s, just a recipe that I put together. Your way sounds very nice!
