Play Up Dessert with Oreo – November Edition (Giveaway ends 11/19/12 – 5 Winners!)

Last month you might recall that I hosted a giveaway for some Oreo holiday “kits”. The winners were asked to submit a photo of one of their creations they made using that kit. The photos I received were put up on my site and the one with the most votes won a $100 gift card. The winner was Julie from Beaufort, NC.

I’m doing another giveaway this month. Five winners will received the November Oreo Play Up Dessert kit. Each winner will be asked to submit a photo of one of their creations made using the kit. The photos will then be posted here on my blog for others to vote on. The photo with the most votes will also win a $100 gift card. More on that later on in this post.

I received November’s kit. I was excited to open it up. It arrived in a huge round box (bigger than a hat box) with cute candy Turkeys (made out of Oreos of course) on the lid.

I love the turkeys! They are so cute and perfect for Thanksgiving.

Most people serve pie for dessert after a filling Thanksgiving meal. I think the little turkeys would be fun to offer guests in addition to pie. I also think they would make for great holiday decor on the table, or use them as seat markers (tuck a piece of paper with the guests name on it on to the “tail” so they know where to sit).

I couldn’t wait to open the box!

Inside the box I found a darling cake stand, a cake/pie slicer/server, an ice cream scoop, pretty napkins with colorful leaves, a beautiful felt Autumn placemat and of course Oreos (two packages).

Also included in the package was an Oreo recipe book. It’s seen in the photo (above) of the box contents. It’s at the bottom of the picture with the the little “cake balls” (I the snowman one!).

Who knew there were so many different desserts you could make with Oreos.

I wish I had photos to share with you. Inside you will find recipes for…

  • Oreo Cookie Turkey (pictured on the box)
  • Oreo Cookie Balls
  • Holiday Oreo “Bark”
  • Chocolate Covered Oreo Cake (it looks like a giant Oreo!)
  • White Chocolate-Raspberry Cheesecake Bars
  • Oreo Milkshake
  • Mini Oreo Surprise Cupcakes
  • Festive Oreo Whoopie Pies
  • Ultimate Turtle Cheesecake
  • Oreo Mint Chocolate Mousse
  • Triple Double Oreo Tartufo
  • Oreo Triple-Layer Chocolate Pie

All the recipes in the book come complete with a mouth-watering photo of the finished recipe too. Mmmm!!!

All the recipes seem fairly simple and don’t require many ingredients. I’m trying to decide which recipe to make first. 🙂

Since Thanksgiving is next week I thought it would be fun to make the Oreo Cookie Turkeys with my kids. My daughter had seen something similar and wanted to make them slightly different than the recipe found in the book. So we went to the store and picked up a few ingredients (candy corn, malted milk balls and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup minis).

We played around with a few different designs until we came up with the one we liked best. My kids were more than happy to take care (eat!) the prototypes. I’m surprised they didn’t give themselves bellyaches eating so much candy and Oreos. 🙂

We had a problem getting some of the things to stick. We didn’t follow the recipe in the book which suggests melted baking chocolate. My daughter finally came up with a great idea – Nutella! It worked (I think peanut butter would have worked good too).

We also used giant sprinkles for the eyes (they came with the October Oreo kit).

Check out our final design.

Cute, isn’t it? (and yummy too!).

We have plenty of ingredients left over so we’re going to make a new batch for Thanksgiving. We didn’t want to make them all now because the kids (and my husband – and maybe me too) will gobble (no pun intended…LOL!) them up before the holiday.

These were a lot of fun to create and it was great “crafting” with my kids. They are teens now and sometimes it’s “uncool” to hang out with mom and dad. So this was certainly a cherished moment with me. Now that I know how to make these I am going to make them every year. Maybe one day with my grandchildren and great-grandchildren too.

Next year I hope to host Thanksgiving dinner at our house, if we can ever sell our condo. I am going to put one of these turkeys at each place setting.

Who knew creating things with Oreo cookies could be so much fun. The wheels are already turning in my head on what Oreo recipe I can make for Christmas. I’m leaning towards the cake balls (I love the snowman!) and maybe the Holiday Oreo Bark. We’ll see…

Fore more Oreo information check out the brand’s page, http://brands.nabisco.com/Oreo. You can even find recipes there too. You might also want to check out Oreo on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/Oreo) and Twitter (@Oreo).

Now for the giveaway!

FIVE (5) lucky readers will each win one (1) Oreo Kit (the same one I recieved). In addition, the winner’s who submit a photo of their Oreo recipe creation (it can be from the recipe book or another Oreo recipe you might have) by the “due date” will also be eligible to win a $100 gift card. I’ll have readers vote on their favorite recipe photo just like I did last month.

This giveaway is open to US residents only (EXCEPT Alaska & Hawaii) and will end on November 19, 2012 at 12:01 AM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winners will be notified via e-mail and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen.

To enter please comment on this post and tell me which is your favorite recipe from the recipe book (mentioned above)?
