I love this holiday time of year where there are plenty of reasons to make treats and desserts. Every year about a week before Christmas, I turn on the oven and bake up piles of cookies. We like to give goodies to teachers, bus drivers, neighbors and friends. Every person in our household has a favorite of theirs but the truth is baking cookies is not my favorite thing to do. I would much rather cook or create something fun.
This year, I decided to go with a new treat to serve around holiday time and to give to the neighbors. OREO and Kitchen Play have come together to encourage folks to PLAY UP dessert. Since ice cream and OREOs are two of my kids favorites, I was thrilled that I was asked to create a dessert for them.
These cute little sandwiches can be rolled with whatever type of sprinkles you like. The fun part is changing the flavors of ice cream and sprinkles every time you make them. I store them in cupcake liners in a festive plastic tin and take them out of the freezer every time we have company. And of course, several tins are given to friends after my kids eat their fair share.
The great news is Kitchen PLAY is giving away two OREO holiday prize packs filled with Crate & Barrel goodies, an exclusive OREO cookbook and more holiday goodies. This prize is valued at approximately $70. You can win one of these fun filled packs just by creating an OREO treat.
To enter, simply recreate any OREO dessert from this Kitchen PLAY event or come up with your own. Post about it on your site and provide a link to that post in the comments on this Kitchen PLAY page. Two winners will be picked from all the entries.
Multiple entries are allowed, as long as a separate OREO dessert post is created for each entry. Deadline is midnight PT on December 31, 2012. Good luck and have fun creating!
