Funky Oreo Flowers

Let’s talk Oreos … I’m about to date myself … do you remember when there was only one type of Oreo cookie?

It was very exciting when Double Stuf Oreos were born in 1975!  Double filling … wow!

Today, I can’t even tell you how many varieties are available … Peanut Butter, Mint, Birthday even Triple Stuf.  Do new varieties pop up every time I go shopping?  I think so!

Funky Oreo Flowers

I didn’t really know what to call these flowers … fun, silly, whimsical?  My vision was to create roses, but got I funky flowers instead.  This time, I didn’t even ask for family opinions … pretty sure the description may include dorky … I know when not to ask!  However, the family sucked these Oreo flowers right off their sticks!  Son #3 did say that I used too much white chocolate!!!  Can you believe that comment … too much chocolate?

This is the first time I bought Heads or Tails Double Stuf Oreos … you can use whatever flavor you like, however I do recommend using Double Stuf.  The thicker center makes it easy to insert a stick.

FUNKY OREO FLOWERS

  • 10 Double Stuf Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) white chocolate (candy melts)
  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) pink candy melts
  • 10 sticks (I used 5.5″ coffee stirrers)
  • 10 green chenille stems (pipe cleaners)
  • Squeeze bottle fitted with a #6 or 7 tip (or a pastry bag with a 1/8″ opening)
  • Baking sheet or tray covered with wax paper or parchment paper

I wanted two shades of pink on my flowers so this is what I did –

Melt the pink candy and put about 1/2 cup of the melted candy in a squeeze bottle or pastry bag for swirl decoration.  Melt the white candy and add the remainder of pink candy to create a lighter pink for dipping.

  1. This is my hint of the day – If your cookies tend to crack when you insert a stick … place 3 cookies in the microwave for 10-15 seconds … it softens the icing.  Brush all loose crumbs off cookies.
  2. Dip the tip of a stick in melted candy and insert it into the cookie icing, allow to sit a few minutes and firm up.
  3. Dip cookie in melted candy, tap off all excess candy. lay on prepared tray.  Chill for a few minutes or sit at room temperature.
  4. Use the squeeze bottle or bag and make a swirl design, starting from the center and end on the outer edge.  Chill for a few minutes
  5. Make funky leaves … wrap a chenille stem around a pencil, slide it off and twist it around stick.
