Marbled Oreos

July 19, 2016


Start with the Best Ingredients - Oreo Cookies

In the past couple of years, I have seen a lot of marbled cakes popping up in the baking world. I have even done a few myself - like this Purple Marble Cake or this Blue Marble Cake. It's pretty easy technique to master, and let's be honest, it looks really really cool. But why stop at cakes?

Easy Marbling Recipe For Cookies

Last week, I decided it was time to go beyond the marbled cake, and take on America's favorite cookie - The Oreo. The result was pretty great. There are not many things in this world that can beat a good old fashioned Oreo - but I think these marbled ones come pretty close.

I also did my first Periscope Broadcast (which is a LIVE video feed) demonstrating how I did this. I'm not going to lie...I was so nervous and sweating the entire time. I am terrified of being in front of the camera (I am much more comfortable behind it), but sometimes you gotta get out of your comfort zone. And guess what...I made it through! You can check it out below.

I am going to start trying to do more Periscope Broadcasts, so if you don't have the app, you should definetly check it out. It's pretty cool!

Marbled Oreos | Sprinkles For Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound melting chocolate
  • Chocolate Coloring (I used Wilton's Pink and Purple)
  • Toothpicks
  • 20 Oreos

Directions

  1. Place wax or parchment paper on a flat work surface.
  2. Put melting chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each heating, until it is melted. Place 1/3 of the chocolate into a small bowl.
  3. Dip toothpick into chocolate color and swirl into the small bowl of melted chocolate. Repeat with remaining colors.
  4. Dip each cookie halfway into the chocolate, coating the back and front evenly.
  5. Lightly tap the cookie on the rim of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate.
  6. Place cookie on paper. Let them cool until the chocolate is completely hardened.
  7. Repeat this process with the rest of the cookies. Once the chocolate begins to lose the white color, add more of the white melted chocolate and chocolate color.

*Makes 16 Oreos

These are really pretty and I want to make them for a shower! how far in advance do you think I can make them? Does freezing them make sense?

You can totally freeze them! You can make them a few weeks in advance and freeze them and they will be fine.

So I didn't read it before settling in to attempt and had gel food coloring. They have some minimal lumpiness. Lol! The next batch was done with both white and purple melting chocolate marbled, since I didn't have the correct food coloring. I think it worked!

Love the look!
I made these with one color, blue, and it still came out looking like many shade of blue! Very pretty.
Its a good idea to work with small batches of chocolate, since the die will eventually turn your white chocolate into whatever color you are using

Hi Hannah! So glad you had success with this recipe! Your suggestion is also a great tip. Working with a small amount of chocolate at a time is ideal for these Oreos.

This is darling! Do you think you could use gel food coloring?


Lindsay Nathanson

If the gel food coloring is water based, it will not work. It will cause the chocolate to seize up and harden. Hope that helps! We don't want you ruining perfectly good chocolate.
