They are finally back!
Monthly Inspiration Challenges are back!
Melissa of Simply Sweets by Honeybee
and Stephanie of Ellie's Bites Decorated Cookies, have
decided to bring them back!
I am so excited!
This month's theme is
They changed it up a little this time, and are
wanting not just decorated cookies, but anything
related to the theme.
The options are endless!
I had a hard time deciding what to do, but I knew I wanted to
step out of my comfort zone, away from decorated cookies.
Long before I started doing decorated cookies, Oreos were what I
would pack in Collin's lunch box everyday. Three Oreos, not 1, not 2, but 3!
And they HAD to be Oreos, no knock offs for my son, he wanted, no
demanded the real thing. And regular Oreos, not double stuffed, or seasonal
colors or flavors.
So, after looking around online, I found a
Homemade Oreo recipe that I thought would be close to the
real thing, in looks and taste.
I used a recipe from My Kitchen Addiction, ,
using Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa
and for the filling, I used Melissa's from
OMG, so yummy Butter Cream Icing.
I did leave out the almond flavoring, and increased
the vanilla to 1 tablespoon.
Not only did they turn out wonderful,
but they are Collin Approved,
he took 3 in his lunch box everyday this week,
and asked me to make more this weekend.
I have a few left over, and even after a week, they are
still crazy yummy!
