{oreo chicks}

Spring is here, and I thought some cute little Oreo Chicks would be SO fun!



These are so so easy, and kids love helping and eating!

How perfect for school classrooms, Easter parties and egg hunts, and even as favors at your Easter table.


ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • Double Stuf Oreos
  • Yellow Candy Melts
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Orange candy melts OR white chocolate chips & orange food coloring
DIRECTIONS:

1. Melt the yellow candy melts according to package directions.

2. Dip Oreos into the chocolate, using whatever means necessary. :) I ended up just holding one end with my fingers, dipping it in to cover most of it, then using a spoon to coat the rest. Lay them out on a piece of aluminum foil.

3. Use the mini chocolate chips for eyes, and break the pretzels into small pieces for the legs. I placed the pretzels into the middle of the cookie when they were still wet. I did have a couple fall out, so I just dipped them into the chocolate and stuck them back on.

4. You can do a couple of things for the orange beak. You can use orange candy melts, or melt white chocolate chips and add orange food coloring. I actually used some white buttercream frosting that I had, and used food coloring to get the color I wanted. Whatever you decide to use, place it in a small sandwich bag, and push into one of the corners. Snip a *tiny* piece of off the corner, and pipe on the beak.

5. Let dry completely, then EAT!!

Super cute!

However, you might want to mention that regular food coloring won't work with candy melts. You need an oil based one - or one specifically for chocolate/candy making.

Disappointed! Wish I would have read Laree's comment before making them. We were only able to get 5 ducks made before my white chocolate chips turned hard from the food coloring and wouldn't melt back down.

Amy S.--

I'm sorry that happened! I actually used white chocolate chips and regular food coloring, and didn't have a problem, so I didn't even think to mention needing a special oil-based food coloring. I hope you'll try it again with yellow candy melts!
