I’ve been surprised with how few my cravings have been with this pregnancy. I’ve had an aversion to more things than I’ve craved but when I do crave things, I crave them like crazy. Yesterday when I took a nap I dreamed about cake pops and white chocolate covered EVERYTHING. Oreos with peanut butter in the middle, covered in white chocolate were the main event. Now, I’ve had a lot of weird dreams while I’ve been pregnant each time (I don’t dream often when I’m not) but this one was definitely craving-induced and cringeworthy-weird. A groovy 70’s colored background, complete with kaleidoscope moving dots and flowers and a cake pop off to the left. Closest to me was a big oreo with peanut butter slapped in the center, white chocolate being poured over the top with a popsicle stick in the center. I woke up and went straight for the kitchen cabinets, stomping through the toys and clothes and food the kids had thrown around while I tried to rest. I couldn’t have cared less about all that!
White Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Oreos & White Chocolate Covered Strawberries… An Easy Dessert the Kids Can Help With!
My husband was headed out the door with the boys to get some wood and stain at the home improvement store, so Oakley and I had free range in the kitchen and NO crazy hands to keep out of our work! So perfect. I snapped a few pictures as we made these, but they’re so easy they don’t need much explanation at all.
Why We Love These
Not only are they quick, cheap and easy to make but they are just SO good. The peanut butter adds such great balance to the sweetness of the Oreos and white chocolate, as do the strawberries. Yum!
What You Need
White Chocolate for Melting
Chocolate Milk Mix Powder or Sprinkles
Carefully twist open the Oreos and spread peanut butter over the center filling. Close it back up. Do this for all the Oreos.
Melt the white chocolate according to package directions. Dip each one into the white chocolate one side at a time. Sprinkle the chocolate milk mix powder on top while it’s still wet/melted. Lay out on wax paper and allow to dry before doing the second side. Dip a few strawberries in the left over white chocolate and sprinkle them with the powder, too. Why not?!
If it’s a hot day and the chocolate is taking a bit longer than you expected to harden, pop them into the freezer for just a few minutes. Ta da!
These don’t last long around here so I only make one row of the Oreo package at a time because I’m not sure we could resist the temptation to totally pig out! Store any extra strawberries in the fridge and the cookies should be kept in a zip lock bag. Who actually has extras, though? Not us!
