How do you make Oreo cookie even better?

Turn them into penguins!

These adorable Oreo penguins aren’t inexpensive: 12 cookies are $42.95 at MackenzieLtd.com.

But if you’re game to make your own, head to the store for the ingredients to make your own.

RECIPE: PENGUIN OREOS

Ingredients

  • A jumbo bag of Oreos (ideally Double Stuff Oreos)
  • Dark and white chocolate, chopped, or chocolate chips
  • Red and yellow food color-or-gumdrops, Starbursts or other orange candies for beak and feet
  • Wax paper
  • 2 quart-size plastic storage bags
  •  
    Preparation

    1. MELT dark chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth. Dip Oreos completely in the chocolate and set on wax paper to harden, about 10 minutes. We used tweezers to hold an edge of the cookie. Then, after we set the cookie on the wax paper, we added a dab of chocolate to the small “naked” spot.

    2. HARDEN and when the chocolate has set, melt the white chocolate in the same manner. Transfer into the plastic storage baggie. Cut a small corner off the bag and draw the “vest” on each cookie. Don’t worry if your lines aren’t as perfect as the professional version—they used specialty tools to achieve perfection.

    3. CREATE the beaks and feet. After the white chocolate has set, melt another batch of white chocolate and use food color to make it orange. Transfer to the other plastic storage bag to pipe the beaks and feet. (Unless you’ve got a great hand, it’s best to omit the bow tie.)

    4. CREATE eyes by dabbing white and dark chocolate with a toothpick. Let harden and store in an airtight cookie tin between sheets of wax paper until ready to serve.
