Bakerella's Kisses X~O~X

When I saw these last year at her sweet sweet site..I kept the recipe and " la méthode de faire"~

I am so glad I did..they're cute as buttons..well kisses..

Easy as pie.. oops easy as an Oreo Cookie....some cream cheese and chocolate~

You will also need some aluminium foil and buy the thinnest cheapest foil money can buy~ I have often sighed at the thin thin kind.. it's best for this..mine was only other choice was heavy duty..You will need to handwrite or type out little tags and insert them.

I am SURE you have ALL been to Bakerellas..If by chance you have not..go peek but be prepared to stay..:) So many wonderful ideas..some of hers have been to wedding showers here..and baby showers~ A DELIGHT!

La Recette~
Courtsey of Bakerella~

Oreo Kisses

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
chocolate bark

1. Finely crush all but seven cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency.
2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Then, begin to form the shape of a kiss. Flattening the bottom and forming a point at the top. (Mine ended up about 1.5″ tall)
5. It helps to put the uncoated balls in the freezer for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart when you drop into the melted chocolate.
6. Melt chocolate as directed on package and then dip “kisses” one at a time into chocolate, tap off extra and slide them off spoon onto wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry.
7. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy! Oh yeah, just eat the extra seven cookies.

1. Handwrite your messages or create them on the computer. Cut out the strips (about 1/4″ tall and however wide you need).
2. Cut up some square sheets of aluminum foil (about 5.5″ square)
3. Place dry kiss in center and start wrapping the foil around the base. Insert message near top and secure it by pressing the foil together at top.

I am taking the opportunity of joining Ann and Lori in their weekend blog showcase when we highlight a recipe we have gleaned from someone's blog~
Perfect opportunity~


  1. How cute and so pretty against the pink background. Pretty in pink ;) Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate - oh my!

  2. So cute! And I have everything...
    For once cheap tin foil will have a purpose!
    I can't wait to try them..and I know you didn't eat the other cookies..:)
    I would..but not you!

  3. I have a roll of worthless foil, just waiting for this!

  4. Can I be your Valentine, Nana? ;) I'm prepared to take a queue number.

  5. I'll gladly stand in line to be your Valentine too, sweet 'Nana'!

    Perfection!! xo

  6. I wish I could come up with a really clever compliment like the way you always do... this is really sweet and pretty- all poised to melt the coldest, meanest heart!

  7. I see you've typed out personalized tags for each...

    Just a perfect recipe...chocolate.

  26. I Love Bakerella blog too but never attempted to try any of her recipes. Strange. :) But I'm glad that you enjoyed recreating her sweets. Looks fabulous.

  27. Qu'est ce que c'est beau, et cette couleur rose fushia, on se croirait dans un conte de fée
    Je suis contente que toi et Jacques ai aimé ma salade, merci
    Bonne soirée

  28. Oh Nana, how utterly adorable! I just love these. Well done you!! xxoo

  29. Mais ils sont magnifiques. Que j'aime l'assiette de présentation. Elle est très belle.

  30. These are absolutely adorable.

  31. Oh, your lucky Valentines!! My kids would love these! Thanks!


  32. These are adorable. What a great idea--who would have thought that Oreos could be made even Better!

    I love the personalized tags. You're so creative!

  33. "Just eat the extra seven cookies" -- You're too funny!

  34. My husband loves oreos and would eat the whole batch of these babies. Happy Valentine's day Monique.

  35. Talk about cute!! These are cuter than cute. I love the little skinny paper thingies you made so they'd look just like the real thing. These sound so tempting and I would have a lot of trouble refraining from eating kiss after kiss. Lovely!
