Polar Bear Oreos Shopping List:
1 package of Double-Stuffed Oreos
1 box of M&M’s
2 bags of Ghiradelli white chocolate melting wafers
1 package of small edible eyes
1 cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper
How to make Polar Bear Oreos:
Using a double boiler, melt one bag of the white chocolate. Adults should do this step (Note: You can also melt in a microwave safe bowl, but only heat for 20 sec at a time, stirring in between. Handle bowl carefully as it may be hot).
Gently pull apart the Oreos, making sure that the cream stays on one half of the cookie.
Lightly press two yellow M&M’s into the cream, so that half of each M&M sticks out of the cookie. These will be the “ears,” so you want to place them at what will be the top of your Polar Bear cookies, about one finger width apart.
Place the other half of the Oreo cookie back on top and slowly dip the top half into the melted chocolate.
Lightly shake the cookie to get excess chocolate off and place onto the cookie sheet.
Place cookies into the fridge for 10 minutes to harden before continuing.
Place the Oreo cookie into the melted chocolate, using a fork lightly flip the Oreo cookie so that both sides get coated.
Lightly tap the side of the pot to get excess chocolate off place Oreo onto the cookie sheet and repeat step with remaining cookies
Place a non-melted white chocolate wafer onto the lower part of the cookie to make the nose. Then, put a dab of melted white chocolate onto the letter side of a blue M&M and press onto the white chocolate wafer.
Use melted white chocolate to attach two eyes to the cookie, above the nose.
Allow cookies to dry for 30 minutes before enjoying.
