My son decided he wanted a Mickey Mouse theme for his 3rd birthday party this past January. For today's post, I want to show you these adorable Mickey Mouse Oreo Favors. (The idea came from www.mypartyfile.com) Aren't these just adorable? The kids loved them! I made some into cookies and some into lollipops.
Melt red chocolate melting chips in microwave, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Dip the bottom half of each Double-Stuffed Oreo into the red chocolate. Gently slide a lollipop stick directly through the center of the Oreo cookie (through the white filling in the middle) and stop just before it comes out the other end. Lay on waxed paper for the red chocolate to dry.
Hint: If you are having troubles with the Oreos breaking, pop the Oreos in the microwave on defrost for 10 seconds before you dip them in red chocolate and insert the sticks so the centers will soften up and the stick will slide right in.
Rub a dark chocolate melting chip on the side of a hot kettle to slightly melt it, and gently insert between the biscuits. Repeat for the other ear. When the icing is dry, add two dots of white icing (I used a tube of white icing) for Mickey’s buttons. Store in an airtight container, and refrigerate if the weather is hot!
If you want to give them as party favors, pop each one into a cellophane bag, then tie a little ribbon at the bottom.
