These Heart Eye Emoji Oreos are a simple and delicious way to say “Happy Valentine’s Day” to an emoji lover!
I have so many questions about dating in the age of smartphones.
Like how many dates do you go on with a person before it’s acceptable to friend them on Facebook? Or is that something you can do prior to the first date?
It’s just that years and years worth of bad selfies and previous relationship info seems like something a person should not be privy to until they are seriously committed.
Also, breakups. Can you break up via text? Or is it something that absolutely must be done in person? Is it possible that the seriousness of the relationship is the qualifier for possible text break-ups?
I feel like I would be really good at text break-ups. Every time they texted me to see if I wanted to hang out that weekend, I’d just text them back the poop emoji until they got the hint.
There is so much anxiety and second-guessing involved in new relationships, texting should really not be part of the equation. There is so much room for interpretation in a text, it’s quite upsetting even for old married people like myself. One time my husband texted me “call me as soon as you get a second,” and I started hyperventilating and was all OH GOD. SOMEONE HAS DIED. SOMEONE HAS DIED!!!
But as it turns out, he was pulling up to the drive thru and wondered what I wanted to eat. So basically, I was way off.
One thing I can tell you about texting is that there is no misunderstanding the Heart Eye Emoji. It’s a yellow face with hearts for eyes, what could it mean except for love?
These cuties are so incredibly easy to whip up and are super yummy, too! It can be hard to find Valentine’s treats that aren’t too babyish for older kiddos or adults, so I love that these are perfect for all ages.
Here’s how you make them:
You’ll need one of these Oreo molds and some yellow candy melts — both can be found in the candy making/cake decorating section of your local craft store (Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, etc.). You can also order them HERE and HERE via Amazon Prime and have them in time for Valentine’s Day! (NOT affiliate links, I just LOVE me some 2 day shipping)
Melt the yellow candy melts according to package directions. Fill molds halfway with the melted candy.
Press an Oreo into the center of each mold. Gently press it in so that the candy coating comes up the sides of the mold, covering the edges of the cookie.
If you’re like me, use the Peppermint Oreos that you still have leftover from the holidays. It’s fine. It’s all sugar.
Spoon just a bit more of the melted candy on top, spreading to cover.
Place in the refrigerator until firm, them pop out of the mold.
These jumbo heart sprinkles are perfect for these little guys. I’ve seen them at both Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. They usually sell them year round, not just seasonal.
You can also buy them HERE.
Use a bit of your melted yellow candy to attach the heart eyes. Melt some dark chocolate almond bark/candy wafers (I prefer THESE and can always find them in the baking aisle at Walmart), place in a plastic bag with a teensy snip out of the corner, and pipe a mouth on your cookies.
Once firm, package up or serve.
Enjoy and have a very happy Valentine’s Day!!
