Apple Core Oreos
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
  • 12 Oreos
  • 1 Tablespoon solid shortening
  • 1½ cups Wilton red chocolate candy melts
  • 1 white cookie icing pouch
  • 1 black decorator icing in a tube
  • 6 caramels, unwrapped
  • 6 green M&M's (I used mint flavored because the green is darker in color and the pieces are larger but regular ones would work as well.)
  • Additional Materials:
  • 1 Oreo cookie mold
Directions
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a double boiler, melt the solid shortening. Add the red chocolate melts and stir occasionally until melted. Once melted, you might find it easier to transfer the melted chocolate into a smaller bowl to make it easier to handle.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of the melted chocolate to each mold.
  4. Place an Oreo cookie on top of the melted chocolate.
  5. Spoon additional chocolate on top of each cookie, until they are covered completely.
  6. Chill for one hour.
  7. Once chilled, pop the cookies out of their mold and place on the baking sheet.
  8. Cut each caramel piece in half and bend slightly like an apple stem.
  9. Cover one end of each caramel stem with cookie icing and place on the top of each "apple". Hold in place for 10 seconds and place back on cookie sheet for 10 minutes to harden.
  10. Cut each M&M candy in half. Apply cookie icing to the bottom of each piece and place on top of each "apple" to the right of each stem. Hold in place for 10 seconds and then gently place back on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes to harden.
  11. Squeeze cookie icing onto the front of each cookie to resemble the inside of an apple. Be sure to leave a small red border along the diameter.
  12. Using the black gel tube, pipe 3-4 apple seeds on top of the white cookie icing.
