St. Patrick's Day Oreos

In the last couple of years, blogging has taught me a lot about life, structure and creativity. It has taught me to be a better photographer, a better writer, and a better baker - along with the fact that the kindness of a complete stranger can really make my day. But, it has also taught me that people LOVE Oreos.

I don't blame them - Oreos are delicious. And they are, after all, America's Favorite Cookie. But I guess I just didn't realize HOW much people loved their Oreos.

Let me tell you how I know this. These Confetti Oreos I made last Spring are by far the most popular recipe I have ever created here on Sprinkles For Breakfast. They have dominated the Pinterest world, been responsible for some of my highest likes on Instagram, and have been featured on quite a few articles around the interwebs.

I try not to let my baking skills get too offended by their success, because, in reality, there was no baking required at all. I literally just dipped the Oreos in some colorful chocolate and threw on a few sprinkles.

So, with St. Patrick's Day around the corner, I decided it was time to give these Oreos a holiday makeover. But this time, on top of the simple dip and sprinkle decoration, I also created a custom St. Patty's themed filling. The customized filling is quite simple, and really allows you to step up your Oreo decorating game. All you have to do is scrape out the center, and add your own colorful buttercream.
