Oreo Love Bugs
Servings: 15 Cookies
Prep: 20 minutes| Set Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes
1 cup red candy melts
Black writing gel or edible marker
Edible googly candy eyes
Melt red candy melts in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Use a toothpick to add 2 dots of red candy melts to the Oreo where the eyes will go
Place the googly eye onto the red dots
Once candy melt is hardened on the oreo, use black writing gel or marker to make a straight line down the red area, and add a few hearts on each side of the line.
If you feel this is too fiddly, then simply add some chocolate chips as spots on the back of the bug.
These sweet treats are so simple to make that the kids can do it, themselves. You don’t even need a heart-shaped cookie cutter or any fancy equipment for these homemade treats. Take them to school parties, give them out as party favors or pop them into a lunchbox as a school snack.
Store these Valentine’s Oreos in an airtight container for a day or two. They are super easy to transport to school and easy snacks to share.
Another fun thing to do around Valentine’s Day would be a treasure hunt around your home. You could even make the love bugs and use them as your treasure to be found at the end of the hunt.
If you are having a Valentine’s Day party, then you could serve these alongside some red velvet puppy chow, strawberry shortcake and Valentine’s Day popcorn. Get some decorations for the table and the room from the dollar store to help create a party atmosphere. make sure you get some pink or red balloons as these are the perfect way to shout ‘PARTY’!
