One of my favourite things to do after a bad day (or even on a good day) is to melt some chocolate in a bowl and then dip whatever I can find into this ‘chocolate soup’. Sometimes this might be strawberries, or bananas or sometimes just a spoon.
But one of the best things to dip into white chocolate soup is an oreo cookie. It’s delish.
This is a recipe (if you can call it that) that is probably only one degree more sophisticated than what I have described. It takes about 5 minutes to make, and the most difficult part is having the patience to wait for the chocolate to harden. Dipping one of these cookies and cream shards into a glass of milk or a cup of tea will brighten up anyone’s day.
- 300g White Chocolate (chips, or broken into pieces)
- 18 Oreo Cookies
- Lay out a piece of baking parchment (about 30 cm long) or use a non stick mat if you are lucky enough to own one!
- Place the white chocolate into a heatproof bowl and pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds give the chocolate a stir and put it back in for another 30 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate is melted. It’s really important to keep stirring the chocolate every 30 seconds, or the chocolate will burn….and burnt chocolate is not delicious (I find this the easiest way to melt chocolate but of course you can place a heatproof bowl over a gently simmering pan of water until melted).
- Next roughly chop the oreos to a rubble like texture.
- Keep aside one handful of the oreo rubble and add the rest of the oreo rubble to the white chocolate soup and stir.
- Pour the mixture out onto the baking parchment and smooth a little (if necessary) with the back of a spoon so its roughly about 1 cm thick (this is not a recipe where exact measures need to be taken).
- Chop the remaining rubble so that it more resembles dust.
- Scatter oreo dust onto the mixture and then leave to cool. This process can be sped up by popping the baking parchment onto a board and placing in the fridge for about 20 mins.
- Once the chocolate has set, break into rough chunks with your hands.
- Share with your friends. (This last step is not a prerequisite)...
