Oreo cookies covered in vanilla candy melts. Easy to do but yes it is time consuming. Would probably have been even more time consuming if I had used the decorator bags to pip the candy into the molds. I did try on just two cookies to spoon the different color in place but it bled out. You can see the two cookies in the back that I tried it out on. Really I don't think the soldiers are going to care what they look like but only how they taste.
In other news, for the past three days I've been making pineapple smoothies. I found that I really don't like the one with the frozen banana in it at all. It gives me indigestion. Yesterday I made pineapple and blueberry smoothie which wasn't bad. Today it was pineapple and blackberry smoothie. I make enough for two servings so that I get my serving in every morning and J can have his serving, I stick it in the freezer, as more of a frozen fruit ice in the evening.
My smoothie recipe:
1 cup of frozen fruit
3 ice cubes
1 TBSP honey; more or less for sweetness
3 pineapple rings
1 cup almond milk or low fat milk
Puree' in blender and serve in a glass.
I bought a large package of Oreo double stuff for the above cookies.
