Yesterday Oreo, the best cookie on the planet, put up a graphic that made some news with its support of Gay Pride. Lots of arguing ensued as people vowed to never buy another Oreo (yeah. right.) and others claimed Oreo’s bravery. All I could think was where in the world can I get an Oreo that looks like that??!? Turns out, you can’t. It was a fake graphic.
Color me rainbow disappointed. So…I set out today to make my OWN rainbow Oreo goodness. You can call them Gay Pride Oreos, you can call them Rainbow Oreos, I don’t care what side of the “battle” you are on, I am on the cookies side. The more the filling, the better the cookie.
Here ya go:
1) Get a couple bags of Oreos. It takes 6 cookies to create 1 rainbow cookie, so depending on how many you want to make, you are going to have to do the math. I recommend the double stuffed.
2) Separate your cookies. I used a cheese slicer.
3) Paint your cookies with food coloring! I put them on a piece of wax paper, painted them with food coloring, and then put in the freezer for a few minutes to harden. Truth be told, the food coloring smudges almost every time you touch it. There are food colors that you can spray paint on, but I had none in my possession.
And why stop at just a RAINBOW OREO??
How about dipping it in chocolate. And throwing it on a chocolate cake.
Oh. Baby. Oh.
I’d write more, but clearly I have something else to do.
