A Wee Pot O’ Gold

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

A balloon

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!
