These are so simple to make, you’ll be like “woah”. And they turn out so stinkin’ cute – perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! Makes me want to go chasing rainbows (is that a thing?).
To make these, you’ll need:
Mini Oreos or Mini Nutter Butters (I used the Spring Oreos because they have that cute little yellow filling)
Yellow Candy Melts
Gold Color Mist Spray
Chocolate Candy Coating
Start by melting the yellow candy melts in the microwave (tip: add a little vegetable oil to make dipping easier). Do this in 20 second intervals to avoid burning the melts.
Using a spoon, dip the mini Oreos into the yellow candy melts and then let them dry on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Don’t worry about them being messy after dipping, we’ll fix that later.
Let these dry completely (about 15-30 minutes).
Once they’re dry, spray them with the gold mist and let them dry for 10-15 minutes.
Using a sharp knife, cut off the excess candy on each cookie.
Use the chocolate candy coating and the balloon to make a little chocolate bowl (or little cauldron, in this case). I’ll let the fantastic Mandy from Gourmet Mom On-The-Go walk you through that process since…as you can tell…my cauldrons came out a bit iffy 🙂
Place your golden cookies in your chocolate cauldron and you’re all set! Wee little pots o’ gold!
