White Chocolate Covered Oreo Cups

by Heather on February 27, 2012

Confession:  one of my favorite songs EVAH is “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner.

Now what does this have to do with Monday?  What does it have to do with recipes?  What does it have to do with, oh I don’t know, LIFE?

 

Well, like Ms. Turner sings in the song, we’re going to start this week off nice and easy (even though she never does anything nice and easy).  We’re going to make something that requires all of 3 ingredients and about 10 minutes of your time.  We’re going to make something that you’ll become obsessed with and probably curse my name when your tummy starts hurting.

 

It’s a risk I’m willing to take.

 

See, last week when I made the Toasted Coconut Pecan Butter Cups?  I knew that my culinary life as I knew it was over.  Once you make your own chocolate candies you just don’t go back…and this, my friends, is example #1 of that.  Once you go chocolate-covered-Oreo just don’t go back.

 

Nice and easy – it’s how we do things around here on Mondays.  Unless you’re Tina Turner.

WHITE CHOCOLATE OREO CUPS

  • 1 bag (16 oz) white chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 16-20 mini Oreos (you can also use normal Oreos and standard muffin cups – I won’t judge!)

Over a double boiler melt together the white chocolate chips and the coconut oil, stirring constantly until smooth.  Line a mini muffin tin (or if you don’t have one just set the cups on a sheet tray) with mini muffin cups.  Spoon just enough white chocolate into the bottom of each cup to cover the bottom, about 1 tsp.  Press a mini Oreo into the chocolate, then cover completely with more white chocolate.  Let them set up in the fridge until hardened, about an hour.

 

Devour.

 

Note:  they’re particularly good with a spoonful of peanut butter on top.  Not in the middle, on top.  Trust me.

Nice and easy y’all…nice and easy!

These look so decadent! If I made these I don’t know if I would be able to cut myself off of them! Out of curiosity, why do you think the peanut butter is better on top?! I’ve always loved dipping the Oreos in PB like in the movie Parent Trap!

Dear Heather
I adore your blog, I check in daily because it makes me smile so much. In a positive way – this isn’t a mean comment. But your recipes are so daft. Why are you even thinking about things like this when you have gestational diabetes? Take more care of yourself please.
Susan

Hi Susan –

I am glad you enjoy the blog! I still make things that I would enjoy normally but that doesn’t always mean that I’m partaking – I give all of these decadent treats away to family and friends and only reserve enough for me to taste. Believe me, I know and understand the dangers of gestational diabetes and have been controlling it through diet and exercise alone under constant medical supervision. While I do appreciate your concern I don’t appreciate the insinuation that I’m not taking care of myself or my baby, so next time before you leave a comment like the one above please take the time to read previous posts about my condition or ask me in an email like a concerned friend would. :)
