Chocolate-Covered Hanukkah Oreos

Decadent, beautiful — and super easy!

I have to give credit where credit is due, and while I maintain that I am the supreme cook in my house, my husband does often inspire my creations. And today’s recipe came straight from him: “Hanukkah”-decorated chocolate-dipped Oreo cookies.

I often lament how this time of year Jews really get the short end of the stick – there are so many fun Christmas candies, treats and decorations, but no equally-festive Jewish equivalent.

And while these Oreos can’t quite compete with, say, gingerbread or chocolate-peppermint whoopie pies, they are cute and SUPER easy!

Looking for some good sprinkles? I came across these “Judaica sprinkles” at Bed, Bath & Beyond! Although I used a mixture of white and blue sprinkles I already had laying around – I like Williams Sonoma Sanding Sugar, and Wilton sprinkles.

Ingredients

12 oreo cookies

8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tsp butter

sprinkles or other blue and white cookie decorations

Directions

In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter together in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until completely melted. Stir well to ensure no lumps.

Dip oreo cookies into the melted chocolate, making sure to cover the sides. remove the oreo from chocolate using a fork and put on baking sheet covered with tin foil or wax paper.

Scatter tops of chocolate covered cookies with sprinkles of your choosing.

Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
