Happy Birthday

You can lick them, dip them and munch and crunch them  There really is nothing like an OREO.  I was shocked to learn that Oreo's are now 100 years old.  That is a long time for one cookie.  Of course, I am pretty sure that there aren't too many of us out there that hasn't had them at least once.  (some of us more than we should)  Golden Oreo's got me through my pregnancy with my daughter - copious amounts of them. !!!
Oreo's have come a long way from just dipping.  There are so many different ways they have been re-invented by some of the most creative minds around.  If you are having a party and are looking for some unique ideas for treats try some of these.

Now I've got your attention!!  Ya, who wouldn't love a Chocolate Chip cookie wrapped around an Oreo!!  I made these puppies last year - wow.  They were amazing!!  There is a lot of power packed into one these.  One cookie and you are done - plus they have no calories wink wink.  This recipe is a must try.   Such fun.

Oreo cookie Balls.  I was a little hesitant at first, but seriously these little gems are so addictive - (Maybe that's not a selling point)  They are super easy to make and so flexible.  Like cake pops they can be put on a stick and decorated for any holiday, theme or season.  They would be a great addition to any party.

Finally, the newest way I have found to use Oreo's is to dress them up with a chocolate coating.  These are so darn cute and would dress up a loot bag in style.

Now seriously who wouldn't love one of these beautiful works of art.  I hear they are easy to do and they make such a statement!!

Regardless of what you choose to do with your Oreo's one things for sure - they will be yummy no matter what.  Happy Birthday Oreo.
