Easy Valentine Treat

We have this wonderful candy store in Galena on Main Street called Galena Kandy Kitchen and every time my husband and I take a trip to Main Street we always stock up on their yummy candies and homemade confections. I always eye, but never buy, the chocolate covered oreos.

So this year for Valentine's Day I thought I would try my hand at making my own.
They were so easy to do and took maybe a half hour from start to finish. I knew I wanted to use pink and red sprinkles, so instead of dipping the oreos in milk chocolate, I used almond bark. I added a teaspoon of shortening per four squares of bark to make it easier to dip the cookies.

I promise they taste as good as they look!

A Valentine gift coming up tomorrow!


  1. I made these today with double stuff Oreos. Sprinkled with red sprinkles. Thanks for the hint using shortening with the bark to help it spread better. They are so fun and easy to make. Also, congrats on your upcoming Bundle of Joy!
