Be cool this summer with a sweet thank you for everyone on your list. These chocolate covered Oreos are a yummy treat and packaged oh so cute to look like a double scoop of Ice Cream on a cone. Such a fun gift to both give and receive.
Is it just me, or is coming up with the perfect Thank You gift REALLY hard? What do you get someone who has done so much for you that isn't more clutter for them or really shows how much you appreciate what they do every day?
I don't know. But here's one more idea to consider while saying thank you to the guests at your Ice Cream party or for a teacher gift or any other need for a Thank you.
Start by making some chocolate covered Oreos in your favorite ice cream "flavors". I used chocolate Wilton candy melts for the "chocolate" ice cream, and white colored candy melts for the "vanilla" and "strawberry" flavors.
To make the chocolate covered Oreos, you'll need candy melts. Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave at 50 percent power in one minute increments, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Add a little bit of chocolate to the bottom of a Spinning Leaf plain Oreo mold. Tap the mold against the top of your countertop to smooth it out and then place one Oreo down into the chocolate. Tap the mold again and then place another spoonful of chocolate on top of the Oreo and smooth it again and release any more air bubbles. Refrigerate your chocolate covered Oreos for a half hour until they pop out of the mold clean and easy.
While your Oreos are in the refrigerator, print out the Cherry Thank You tags at the bottom of the page. Use a 1 1/2 inch circle punch to cut out the cherries. Then use a regular hole punch to add a hole at the top of the cherry to attach to the thank you gift.
Once your Oreos are ready, add a Nutter Peanut Butter Cookie to the bottom of a 3x10 inch cello bag for the ice cream cone. Now add your Oreos to the top to look like scoops. I was able to get three in a bag but it was a tight squeeze, so I settled on having a double scoop ice cream cone for my Thank you gifts.
At the top of the Oreo "ice cream scoops" tie the bag closed with some green ribbon and add one of your cherry tags to the top. Add some curly ribbon and secure the bag closed.
Now give a scoop or two of ice cream with these Ice Cream Cone Chocolate Covered Oreo thank you gifts to everyone in your life.
