OREO “Play Up Dessert” December Kit Giveaway. Ends @ 3PM EST on Dec. 20, 2012

OREO Play Up Dessert

This is going to be a super quick giveaway turnaround. Normally I give 7-10 days for giveaways. I would really love to get these fabulous kits in the hands of some super creative people ASAP.

If you read my blog on a regular basis you’ll know that I’ve been giving away these cool “kits” from OREO to help five lucky winner “Play Up Dessert” with OREO cookies. I really love what the winners have come up with this far. Sadly, not all kit winners have submitted photos of their creations to me like I had hoped they would. The whole idea of these great kits is to see what fun things people can create for dessert using one of our most beloved cookies – OREOS!

I have FIVE of the December Kits to giveaway to FIVE lucky readers. Before you enter please take this into consideration. I would LOVE to see what kind of great dessert you create with the kit. Please only enter if you are willing to create something and e-mail a photo to me and show me what you made. As an added incentive one of the kit winners who submit a photo will win a $100 gift card. I don’t know about you but a $100 would certainly come in handy. 🙂

OREO Play Up Dessert 2

This month’s kit is wonderful! I had wanted to make chocolate dipped OREOS but due to my not-so-lovely stomach bug and a few other things I was unable to gather up the supplies I needed. What I had planned on doing was taking the holiday edition OREO cookies and dip some in milk chocolate and others in white chocolate. Then I wanted to sprinkle some broken candy cane pieces on them. The kit comes with peppermint flavored candy cane sprinkles. I probably would have used them too.

Where do I begin with this kit? First of all the container is great for storing holiday decorations in. I plan on re-purposing the container to sore some of our Christmas tree ornaments in. It’s too cute not to reuse.

The kit came with two packages of Winter edition OREO cookies. They are the ones with the red cream in the middle.

My kids pounced on them like they haven’t eaten in weeks. I told them not to eat all the OREOS because I wanted to do something with them (dip them) but my kids didn’t hear me say that because half the cookies in one of the packages were gone by the next morning (I think my hubby might have helped them a bit).

December OREO Play Up Dessert Kit

Also included in the kit are the following goodies…

– Lovely Crate & Barrel Bowls in festive designs. I plan on using these to put nuts, candy and other goodies in and leave out for guests to enjoy.

– Place cards and a place card holder.

– 2 packages of Winter OREO cookies

– Peppermint flavored candy candy sprinkles

– Food coloring

– Star shaped cookie cutter

– Gift boxes (great for sharing freshly baked holiday cookies with)

– OREO recipe book

Thinking about the contents of this kit, can you think of something creative to make with them? What kind of an OREO dessert or treat can use make? Of course you are more then welcome to get as creative as possible. The recipe book is filled with great recipe ideas. You don’t have to use the kit contents (but it would be nice).

OREO Bowls

I still plan on making the dipped OREOS. Maybe I’ll make them for Christmas day dinner with my father and stepmother. We need to bring dessert and this would be a fun way to Play Up Dessert with OREO cookies. We’re also going to a friend’s house for dinner on the 29th. I’m going to see what other OREO dessert I can create and bring with us.

Please be sure to check out OREO online http://Brands.Nabisco.com/Oreo/. You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

Now for the giveaway. I want to get the addresses of all the winners ASAP tomorrow (12/20/12) so I’m making the contest end at 3:00 PM EST and I will pull and contact the winners immediately. If you enter please check your e-mail around 3-3:00 and if you are a winner please get back to me right away so the kit can be mailed out on Friday.

PLEASE ONLY ENTER if you can take a photo of your creation and e-mail it to me. It’s no fun not having great photos to show everyone what great things they can create with OREOS. If you think you can’t do that for whatever reason, please reconsider entering so that someone who can share a photo can win. I’m not going to fault you if you don’t. I know life happens. Trust me, I’ve been having a lot of “life happens” going on in my life recently.

I’m going to make this entry really easy. Simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what you THINK you might want to create if you are one of the kit winners – or – if you don’t have any ideas yet simply tell me why you would like to win the kit?

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end at 3:00 PM (EST) on December 20, 2012.

    For your dessert challenge, I will bake the Oreos in the brownie batter (I think I will crumble the Oreos in the batter). I will make cream cheese icing tinted with food color swirled through it. I’ll use the star cutter to cut our the brownie shapes and I’ll scatter the sprinkles on top of the brownie stars.

    If I win, I will send you a photograph! My fingers are crossed!

  31. Colleen Turner says:

    I have been baking up a storm this holiday season and actually used these holiday Oreos to make chocolate covered cookies! I just dipped them in melted white chocolate bark and then sprinkled them with green sprinkles. I also used regular oreos (all crushed up) and a brick of cream cheese and made chocolate covered “truffles”. I think with this kit I would like to try to make some of those cute little snowman faced balls on the cover of the recipe book!

  32. The first thing that came to mind was…an Oreo Christmas tree. Currently working on the details, but I think I know how to pull it off. Why does my brain have to come up with all the difficult projects? At least I’ll be off work for 1.5wks. Might take some time.

  33. I would make an oreo cheesecake

  34. I’d make an oreo cake.

    I would make Oreo Biscuit Chocolate Cake with Snowy Meringue For Christmas for my kids:

    For The Cake Layers
    1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pans
    2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pans
    8 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
    1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    6 large eggs, lightly beaten
    For The Ganache Filling
    3 cups heavy cream
    1 1/2 pounds best-quality semisweet Oreo Biscuit chocolate, coarsely chopped
    2 cups blanched almonds, toasted, coarsely chopped
    For The Ganache Glaze
    3 cups heavy cream
    1 pound best-quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
    For The Topping
    4 large egg whites
    1 1/2 cups sugar

    Make the cake layers: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter two 9-inch round cake pans. Line bottoms with parchment paper; butter parchment. Dust with flour, and tap out excess; set aside. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring. Let cool completely. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
    Put butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Mix in buttermilk and vanilla. Add flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with the eggs, 2 at a time. Add Oreo Biscuit chocolate; mix until smooth.
    Divide batter between prepared pans. Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool on wire racks 15 minutes. Turn out cakes, and remove parchment. Let cool completely on racks. Cakes can be refrigerated, wrapped tightly in plastic, up to 2 days.
    Meanwhile, make the ganache filling: Bring cream to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour over chocolate in a heatproof mixer bowl; stir until smooth. Let cool completely. Attach bowl to mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until mixture reaches a medium stiff consistency, 2 to 5 minutes, checking frequently. If it does not reach this consistency, chill in freezer up to 5 minutes, then continue beating.
    Assemble cake: Trim rounded tops of cakes flat. Stir together 1 1/2 cups filling and the almonds; spread over one cake layer. Top with second layer, and spread remaining filling over top and sides. Smooth with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until filling is very firm, 1 to 2 hours.
    Meanwhile, make the ganache glaze: Bring cream to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour over chocolate in a bowl; stir until smooth. Let cool completely.
    Transfer assembled cake to a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Pour glaze over cake all at once, using a spatula to push it over edges and down sides. (This must be done in one pour or the coating will have drips.) Refrigerate until set, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
    Make the topping: Put egg whites and sugar into a heatproof mixer bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk until sugar has dissolved and mixture reaches 160 degrees, 4 to 5 minutes. Attach bowl to mixer fitted with whisk attachment. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, 7 to 10 minutes. Mound meringue on top of cake; swirl decoratively. Serve.
