Sweet Shower Treats: White Chocolate Covered Oreos and Pretzel Rods

Sweet Shower Treats: White Chocolate Covered Oreos and Pretzel Rods

Need: Oreos, Pretzel Rods, White Chocolate Chips (or Vanilla Almond Bark), food coloring

Recipe:

  • In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate chips/almond bark. (Be careful not to overcook. It the chocolate turns into a thicker version of clay, DON”T use it.)
  • Drop in 3-4 Oreos at a time and completely cover them with chocolate.
  • With a fork (or another utensil) remove the Oreos from the chocolate and place them on wax paper to harden.
  • During this time, you want to add in your desired food coloring to a small amount of the chocolate, in a separate bowl.
  • With a small fork, swirl the colorful chocolate on top of each Oreo cookie. This can be time consuming, considering how detailed you want to be.
  • Once your Oreos are color coordinated, move on to your pretzel rods. You can dip them in your preferred color before placing them on wax paper to dry.
  • After the pretzel rods are complete, allow all items to dry for 15-20 minutes. You don’t want to stack the items if they are not fully dry.
  • In photo 6, I show how to begin your display. Place the pretzel rods around the outer portion of your plate, leaving the center open for cookies.
  • Once the pretzels are in place, begin stacking the cookies. (See photos 7-9)
  • Cookie colors and placement will depend on the shower theme. These photos were used for a shower honoring a baby boy, so I stuck with blues and greens. The occasional pink appeared because the mommy-to-be loved pink! Also, I prefer using a clear plate. To add an additional pop of color, I added a small amount of tissue paper between the glass plate and the cake plate.
