No actual baking required but I just wanted to make a quick post about these cute cookies I made as as part of Valentine’s Day dinner.

Anyone that knows me knows I have a bit of a seal obsession, hence the adaptation – I just think they’re so so cute! Separating the cookies without breaking them and keeping the cream intact is easier said than done and putting the little whiskers on is a bit fiddly but they’re fun to make and sure to raise a smile 🙂
INGREDIENTS – makes 8
- 8 Oreo cookies
- 16 dark chocolate chips
- 8 butterscotch chips
- Handful of chocolate vermicelli
- Use a sharp knife to carefully remove one side of each Oreo and put the non-cream halves to one side.
- Use the knife to gently scrape any excess crumbs off the cream.
- Place pairs of chocolate chips at the top of each cookie as eyes then add the butterscotch chip noses and use tweezers to arrange four vermicelli whiskers on each.
