Gender Reveal Chocolate Dipped Oreos
I always hear mixed reviews on Gender Reveal Parties. Some call them lame, others love them. I personally love any reason to celebrate. I'll look for any excuse to be joined by close friends and family, no matter how silly or simple it is. If surprising everyone with the gender of your soon-to-be baby is a reason in your heart to celebrate, then please... have a blast.
Hate gender reveals or love them - it doesn't matter, because you were asked to make a dessert for your friend's upcoming Gender Reveal Party. However, you're crunched for time. Not only are @Oreos a fan favorite, but they're fast and easy to make, too.
I don't think I've ever met someone who HATED an Oreo cookie. If you have... you don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
I made these for my sister's gender reveal party, and they went QUICK FAST. Everyone gobbled them all up. 'Cause again, let me reiterate, Oreos are a fan fave.
Obviously they're revealing the gender of their unborn child, so pink and blue are a must. I decided to add Pearl Sprinkles for an elegant touch.
Here's what you'll need:
White Chocolate Melts
Light Blue Decorating Icing
Pink Decorating Icing
White Sugar Pearl Sprinkles
STEP 1: Don't panic if you don't have a double boiler. You could always melt them in the microwave, but a double boiler prevents you from burning the chocolate. I don't own a double boiler, so I improvise with a ceramic bowl and a pot. Find a bowl that fits perfectly in the pot like a puzzle piece. If it's a little bigger, that will work, just as long as it's not too small and falls into the water. You want the bowl to suspend over the boiling water.
STEP 2: Once the chocolate is melted, stick a fork into the Oreo's center frosting and dip away. I think the half-dipped Oreo is adorable, but if you want to dip the entire cookie... be my guest.
STEP 3: Gently remove the Oreo from the fork and place it onto the wax paper.
STEP 4: Squeeze blue or pink icing in a zig zag onto the white chocolate.
STEP 5: Add a few pearl sprinkles to the white chocolate.
STEP 6: Repeat steps 2 through 5 for every Oreo. Wait for the chocolate to harden. And you're finished! If pictures are more your thing, click HERE for a photographed Step by Step instructional that I love from @PortlandDesignHouse.
