Flowers brighten up a room. Flowers made from chocolate cookies brighten my life. What better way to celebrate the end of winter than with a Easter bouquet that is delicious and sneeze free? Today I give you white chocolate dipped Oreo bouquets! (and a green thumb is completely unnecessary)…The investment for this Edible Flower Bouquet is minimal both cost and time wise and this bouquet is an easy party serve yourself or a pick-me-up for a friend. Let’s get started!
Oreo Cookies (chocolate or blonde, but why wouldn’t you use chocolate???)
White Chocolate Chips
Begin by gently pushing every lollipop stick into the center of the cookie. You could also use wooden kabob skewers.
Melt white chocolate. You can use the microwave or the stove top. I’m using a homemade double boiler to melt the chips.
Once the chips are melted, carefully dip the cookies in the chocolate. Be careful, they can fall apart and the chocolate is very hot.
Put the dipped cookie on parchment paper and sprinkle the colored sugar on it. This makes the colored “flowers.”
Allow the cookies to set and harden for at least an hour to overnight. I put them in the refrigerator for a little while to speed up the set. Once they are hardened, create the bouquet. I put a piece of floral foam in the bottom of my flower pot to hold the cookies. After I added the cookies, I covered the top in kraft paper shreds for the dirt. M&M candies, Skittles, or other colored candies are also great to use as filling in the pot. Annddd that’s it folks, flower cookie bouquets.
