Birthday Oreos


This isn't a real recipe.

Not even by my standards, where simple often times reigns supreme.

Great friends are hard to come by.  Truly great friends even more so.  I'm lucky enough to have quite a few that I can call that.

Some old, some new.  All wonderful in their own ways.  

One of my oldest friends Indira has always been a truly great friend.

So since she had to work not only all night on her birthday but also her entire birthday weekend (what a trooper) I knew some simple birthday oreos were in order.

And truth be told they turned out so much more wonderfully than I could have ever imagined.

Sometimes it can stay as basic as some oreos, chocolate, and sprinkles thrown together.

And these just make life good.

Enjoy.


Birthday Oreos
Servings: 8-10 oreos

Ingredients:
- 8-10 oreos
- 1/2 bag of candy melts or chocolate chips (any color/flavor)
- sprinkles

Directions
Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.  Pour the candy melts or chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on medium/high heat stirring every 10-20 seconds until smooth.  Using a fork, dip each oreo into candy melts/chocolate, and cover completely.  Tap oreo on fork on side of bowl so excess chocolate falls away.  Place on baking sheet.  (Alternatively you can also just swirl the melted chocolate with a butter knife on top of the oreo.)  Immediately top with any sprinkles of your choice.  Place in freezer for 5-10 minutes to firm up.  Enjoy!
