Bee Mine Valentine Cookies
Ok, so last year when I saw Oreo's Spring yellow cream cookies, I immediately thought: BEES. This year when they reappeared, I refined my idea and this is what I have come up with--the Bee Mine Valentine. Totally sweet.
Here's what I did:
Remove one chocolate wafer from 3 Oreo cookies and discard (eat them). Unwrap a small Reese's PB cup and a Hershey's Kiss. Holding them over a heat source, melt the bottom of a Kiss and use it to "glue" the three Oreos together. (You will smear chocolate onto two of the yellow cremes and top each one with another cookie, ending with 3 cookies joined together. The Kiss is no longer usable, and you must eat it.) Melt another Kiss, or use the same one, if it isn't too deformed, and attach it to the remaining yellow creme. Warm the ends of your licorice pieces and roll the ends down to make antennae. This took a little doing to make them stick together, not gonna lie. Press them into a PB cup, making "pilot holes" with a toothpick as needed. Finally, melt the top side of the PB cup and stick it onto the chocolate cookie on the other end for a head. Stinking. Cute.
Gourmet Mom on the Go's Royal icing eyeballs would be perfect for this. I will have to make some.
I think it would be totally cute to make a beehive out of glazed doughnuts in graduated sizes, pin a "Bee Mine" sign from the top with a toothpick, and have the bees buzzing around the hive. Cute.
PS. Did you know that they sell PB Minis, Rolos AND Kisses together. Much better to have one bag of candy than 3...
