The first time my sister saw these Oreos dipped in chocolate and topped with a sprinkle of sea salt, she turned up her nose. She’s not an adventurous eater, that Elise. We finally convinced her to try one and a single salty, chocolatey bite later she was hooked. This is by far, the recipe I get requests for. Luckily, it’s also the easiest thing to throw together. Anyone can do these.
Almost three years ago, I was looking for a quick and easy Valentine’s Day treat and decided to make these Oreos. That first batch had little red chocolate hearts on them, but what put them over the edge was the slight sprinkling of sea salt, it kicks up the chocolate flavor a notch and a half. My mom fell in love with these and they are her favorite guilty pleasure. I usually make them without the extras, but if you’d like, you can add pretty sprinkles like Emily at Jelly Toast did. I make them at least once a month for everything from birthdays, to shipping them off to my sister Elise at college, to holidays, to just a batch for us to enjoy. They are pretty enough and ‘fancy’ enough to put them in a little box and give them as a hostess gift or a little something for Christmas too.
And they taste really, really good.
