oreo bride and groom cookies

For one of my sister's bridal showers this past weekend I was in charge of favors.  As part of the favors I really wanted to make a treat for everyone to take home.  Months back I had the brilliant idea to try my hand at cake pops.  I bought the book, visited a speciality store with my Mom and then made a practice batch.

I am apparently a terrible cake pop maker.  However if you want me to make you a dozen cake blobs or cake lumps I am your girl.

This epic fail didn't deter me from my goal of creating bride and groom treats for everyone.  It just meant I had to get creative in my thinking.

Turns out that fudge dipped Oreos met my criteria of being both round and already covered in chocolate.  All I had to do was decorate.

First I gathered all of my ingredients:

I have found that the little fondue pots you can pick up for $20 or less are great for melting chocolate and keeping it warm for you to dip things into.  Much better than a double boiler or the microwave.

So I put some almond bark in the fondue pot and went about setting up everything else while it melted.

Let me tell you sorting through tiny little heart sprinkles for a specific color doesn't take nearly as long as you might think.

Once the chocolate was melted it was time to get to work.  First on the brides and then after tinting the chocolate - the grooms.

The hardest part was trying not to go cross-eyed or crazy putting individual sprinkles onto the cookies with the tiniest amount of melted chocolate possible, especially the bride's necklace.

They ended up far from perfect but cute nonetheless.  Yummy too!
