A 'Wonderfilled' Afternoon with Oreos

I was meant to have received product from Oreo for this post. It is an entry to the Foodies100 Wonderfilled recipe challenge sponsored by Oreo, which marks the launch of two exciting new flavours: Peanut Butter and Golden. The delicious new flavours are available in all major supermarkets at an RRP of £1.08. To find out more, visit www.facebook.com/oreo

We were in need of some School Holiday entertainment so I purchased some new Golden Oreos.  I was sent some to develop a recipe but they arrived totally crumbed, as I mentioned in this post.  

I had some yellow candy melts in our store cupboard so we used those and some of our extensive edible decorations collection to make some creatures and critters using the Golden Oreos.  Just melt the candy melts, coat the Oreos then let your imagination flow.

A friendly octopus 

A colourful turtle

A friendly stripy spider
A trio of happy bumble bees

A little yellow chick

A very starry star fish
Some 'kind of flowers' 

And finally some slightly more conventional flowers

We had lots of fun creating creatures and other edible treats from the Oreos and candy melts.  You could use melted chocolate instead.  I added some lemon flavouring to the candy melts which complimented the flavour of the Golden Oreos.  You could use other colours and flavours of canndy melts to make all sorts of creatures and creations for parties, cake stalls or festive occasions.
