I’m super excited about the holidays! Halloween is just by the corner, and even though a lot of us can’t go out Trick-or-Treating (we are too old for that anyway) because the Coronavirus is still a thing, here’s a fun Pumpkin Oreo Treats recipe that’ll please the entire family.
If you have kids, it’ll be fun to make these treats with them.
The Pumpkin Oreo Treats are pretty easy to make, and you probably have all the ingredients ready to go. You only need America’s favorite cookie, Oreo, Reese’s peanut buttercups (Check out this homemade recipe), green M&Ms, orange food coloring, and white chocolate… My nickname in High school.
The combination is crazy! Oreos and Reese’s dipped in white chocolate is like Candy Heaven. And, these treats look anything but spooky; they are only Halloween-inspired because they look just like Pumpkins.
To Make These Delicious Pumpkin Oreo Treats:
Start by melting the white chocolate and folding in some orange food coloring.
You have to make the color of the chocolate with your Pumpkin if you want your treats to come out in the perfect shade.
Tip: After melting the chocolate, it is important to keep it at the right temperature for the coating process. If it’s too hot, it will slide off the treats, and if it is too cold, it will turn out clumpy. You can use a double boiler to keep it warm while you dip.
Take out the top of the Oreo cookies and replace it with Reese’s peanut buttercups. Dip it into the melted chocolate to coat completely and then place it on a parchment paper.
Cut a green M&M in half and place both halves close to each other right at the edge of the coated Pumpkin Oreo Treats.
Also, cut a pecan in half and place one half in the middle of the M&Ms to resemble a pumpkin stalk. Use a plastic knife (or a chopstick) to draw some lines on it (Sounds like something a 5-year-old would enjoy).
Let it freeze for about an hour, and your Pumpkin Oreo Treats are done. You can serve alone or with your favorite drinks or ice-cream.
