Hi my name is Shannon, and I am an addict. They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. My addiction is CHOCOLATE!!
Not just any chocolate or some fancy, expensive, imported stuff - NOPE just good old WF, inexpensive, store bought, delightfully delicious CHOCOLATE!! They call it Almond Bark but I call it HEAVEN♥

When I love to dip - anything - I reach for this...Well I needed to make chocolate covered Oreo's for a friend and of course when you have to make them for someone else it never fails you have a catastrophe!!
I used good old Oreo's and they just crumbled when I put Popsicle sticks in them, so I sent my wonderful hubby to the local grocer. He is an amazing man you know!! He solved my problem by buying DOUBLE STUFFED OREO'S - they worked like a charm. They were the WF brand that had a fun flower design on them and I loved how they looked after being dipped.
So if you have a sweet tooth try these out...
After sticking sticks in them place the Oreo's on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and let them harden in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Melt your chocolate squares in the microwave at 30 second intervals so it doesn't burn and stir till smooth. Dip them and tap off excess chocolate...
Line them up on a foam block to harden...

And than devour their CHOCOLATELY goodness!☺ I am not an Oreo fan but OMG these are so so good!!
Other wonderful things to dip:
Cinnamon Bears
Graham Crackers
Cake Balls
Cheese Cake Balls
Brownie Balls
I think in a perfectly chocolately world you could dip anything!!
Well maybe not veggies☺

Question...can you help me think of an easy dessert, yet fun (not too expensive) for a group of around 30-40 youth and leaders who are coming over to my house for a progressive dinner? I'd appreciate if you could share a couple of thoughts with me.
