“It all started with a mouse.” – Walt Disney
No one is ever too old for Disney! And luckily these treats are so easy, truly anyone can make them, even the little kiddos in your house! These Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Oreo cookies are so stinkin’ simple and almost too precious to eat. ALMOST.
My best friend Josh has been working as a cast member at The Tokyo Disney Resort for the last 14 months and is finally coming back home to California! I was fortunate enough to have seen him in action and make some everlasting memories at Tokyo Disney Sea and at Tokyo Disneyland. In honor of his arrival, I decided to make this week’s PLB treat of the week Disney-themed.
For these Oreo cookies, you’ll need a package of Double Stuf Oreos, mini Oreos, red/pink/white chocolate melts, white chocolate chips (for Mickey’s buttons), rounded white sprinkles or garnishes (for Minnie’s polka dots), and heart sprinkles (for Minnie’s bow).
*PLB TIP: Make sure you have a few spare Double Stuf Oreos handy because it’s likely they’ll break as you assemble the Mickey head. They’re pretty fragile and sometimes, they even come cracked in the package, unfortunately.
You can also make these Mickey/Minnie Oreo cookies into Oreo pops, simply by dipping a cake pop stick in white chocolate and inserting it into the Double Stuf Oreo. Either way, these cookies/Oreo pops are perfect so many different occasions, whether it be birthday parties, gifts to teachers/co-workers/friends/baristas/hair stylists, or even to pack a couple in a Ziploc bag for your children! Heck, I’m bringing these when I go wine tasting next weekend with my girlfriends; they’d go so well with a yummy dessert wine!
Hope you enjoy this recipe! If you have any questions, ask away in the comments below!
- Double Stuf Oreos
- Mini Oreos
- white chocolate melts
- red chocolate melts
- pink chocolate melts
- white chocolate chips
- heart sprinkles
- rounded white sprinkles/white garnishes
- wax paper
- baking sheet
- spoon/butter knife
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate melts in 30 second intervals at 50% power until completely smooth.
- Twist apart Mini Oreos and remove center filling entirely, you will not need it.
- Using a small amount of white chocolate, dip less than ¼ of one Mini Oreo cookie in the white chocolate and gently shove it into right side of the “stuf” of the Double Stuf Oreo. Repeat the process for the left side.
- Place the Double Stuf Oreo with the two Mini Oreos on the wax-lined baking sheet
- Allow white chocolate to harden by putting the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
- Melt the red chocolate melts using the same method as described above.
- Dip the bottom half of one Double Stuf Oreo into the melted red chocolate. Gently tap the rim of the cup to allow all excess red chocolate to fall back into the bowl. Scrape the bottom of the Double Stuf Oreo against the rim of the bowl. Place cookie on wax paper.
- Add two white chocolate chips to the front of the Oreo to act as Mickey’s buttons.
- Place tray in fridge for 10 minutes to allow red chocolate to harden.
- Melt pink chocolate melts using the same method as described above.
- Dip bottom half of one Double Stuf Oreo into the melted pink chocolate. Gently tap the rim of the cup to allow all excess pink chocolate to fall back into the bowl. Scrape the bottom of the Double Stuf Oreo against the rim of the bowl. Place cookie on wax paper.
- Drop white sprinkles/garnishes onto the pink chocolate to act as Minnie’s polka dots on her dress.
- Using the same melted white chocolate from earlier, dab a small amount onto the back of one heart sprinkle. This white chocolate will also act as glue. Lay the sprinkle down sideways beneath one of the “ears.” Do the same thing with another heart sprinkle and attach it sideways so the tips of the heart sprinkles are touching one another to look like a bow.
- Place baking sheet in fridge for about 10 minutes to let the pink chocolate firm up.
