I’ve baked some amazing desserts since April, and I love all of the super decadent desserts that I have shared with you. I’ve grown a lot as a baker, and have tried a few recipes that have intimidated me for a long time.
I agonized over what to make for a New Year’s Dessert, and honestly, I just didn’t want to just do a Champagne Cupcake. I wanted a stunning dessert that really SCREAMED – Happy New Year!!
No-Bake desserts were really on the no-no list for my Dieter’s Downfall aesthetic. However, I’m going to give exception to these no-bake desserts. They seriously took just as long to make beautiful. These are no ordinary Oreos, Rice Krispie Treats, Strawberries, or Marshmallows.
No, these are super glammed up treats that totally deserve to be on Dieter’s Downfall!
As I said, these took several hours to make. All the bows and roses were made one at a time with silicon molds. The treats were coated in candy melts, then shimmered up, then dressed up and adorned with sparkles.
There are some ladies who make these for a living and I really need to tip my hat to them for all the time and effort that goes into making them.
A Wedding Shower, Baby Shower, Sweet 16, Baby’s 1st Birthday, or just to give as a wonderful gift to your
boss Best Friend! Give them a try and make something beautiful and stunning!
- Oreo Cookies
- White Candy Wafers
- Oreo Cookie Mold
- Rose Silicon Mold
- Pink Pearl Dust
- Gold Spray Paint
- Rainbow Disco Dust
- Fill the mold ⅔ with melted white candy wafers then press in the Oreo cookie. Fill in the top and cover the cookie completely. Tap the tray a few times on the counter to get any air-bubbles out. Place the filled tray into the freezer for 5 minutes to harden, then remove from the tray and let them come to room temperature.
- Spay with the Gold or Silver Spray Paint and allow it to dry. Drizzle with melted candy wafers and then pout the rainbow dust or disco dust on.
- You can also, shimmer them up with Pink Pearl Dust and a dry paint brush. Simple brush the color on then drizzle and decorate.
- Make all of your Candy Roses and place them in the center of the Oreo.
- Have your Rice Krispie Treats cut to a 3 inch by 2 inch rectangle. They should be about 1 inch thick. They should also be firm, so leave them out for an hour to "dry" a bit so that they stay straight.
- Melt your white candy wafer, dip ½ inch of a lollipop stick and insert it into the Rice Krispie treat. Coat your treat into the white candy and stand it up to dry. I double dipped my treats to get good coverage and fill in some of the uneven surfaces.
- Melt your black candy wafer and then dip each treat at an angle to make a crossed effect.
- Make all of your bow ties and attach then and add two black buttons to the shirt.
- Serve these on your elegant dessert table with the Dressed up Strawberries and Fancy Marshmallows.
