White Fudge Dipped Easter Oreos

I found this incredibly easy and colorful website on the Picky Palate blog. It super quick to make. 10 minutes tops. Enjoy!

White Fudge Dipped Easter Oreos


Bag of Oreo Cookies

Bag of Wilton White Candy Melts (I found mine at Michaels)

Food Decorating Paste or Food Coloring (red, yellow, blue and green)

White nonpareils Sprinkles


Take half of the Oreos out of the package and set on plate so they are ready to go. Melt candy according to package directions until smooth. Divide white chocolate into 4 separate bowls then add paste or food coloring until desired color is reached. Start with just a tiny drop so you get pastels. Stir then dip tops of oreos in chocolate. Use spoon to spread evenly. Sprinkle with sprinkles then place onto foil, parchment or wax paper to dry. Continue dipping until Oreos and chocolate is used up. Serve room temperature or chilled, Enjoy!!

Kitchen Table and Chairs

I bought this old kitchen table and 4 chairs from Craigslist. They have great bones but boy do they need a lot of work.

Hopefully the end result will look something like this:
