Kitchen Play: Play UP Dessert with OREO Brownie Cupcakes

I have a delicious dilemma that I have recently discovered and am struggling with a bit. Keep in mind, as you read, that my struggles are occurring synonymously with a milk-mustache- chocolate-crumbs-in-the-corners-of-my mouth grin.

Longtime readers are aware of my chocolate intolerance.  While there is no need to go into specifics about what happens after any chocolate consumption, my inability to take pleasure in the creamy, smooth, heartwarming convection has been for quite sometime.  I bake with chocolate often for others to enjoy, but don’t partake personally. Recently, however, this Kitchen PLAY event has brought upon a whole new awareness in my life. What is this awareness, you ask?

Come close to your screen as I whisper, in fear this newly learned information will be redacted.

I can eat three Oreos without having a reaction.

Up!  Three!  How great is that!?!?!

Despite my trainer’s soon-to-be-crankiness when he finds out this news, should I choose to tell him, I am super excited to be able to indulge every now and again.

How did I figure all this out? To play up a up dessert with Oreo Cookies, I made a quick trip to my grocer and grabbed a few packages of the tradition Oreo Cookies and one package of the Triple Chocolate Cookies (which are the cookies on top of the cupcakes shown here). After a combination of over ambition and messing up a double batch Oreo fudge, I was left with an extra, unopened package of cookies. Well, it’s not unopened anymore.  Temptation got the best of me and I began testing the boundaries of my intolerance to find out that, with milk, I can consume three cookies.  Woot! *Disclaimer* I am not condoning this behavior and am aware of silliness here. However, I know myself, my allergies and intolerances (which are different) and know consuming chocolate does not cause an effect that requires medical attention.

In the process of my “testing the waters”, I whipped up a batch of Oreo Brownie Cupcakes for the Kitchen PLAY event that are easy to make and perfect for family members to get involved. The cupcakes celebrate the two OREO Thanksgiving prize packs filled with goodies like a Crate & Barrel serving platter, a Crate & Barrel pie server, an exclusive OREO cookbook and more Thanksgiving goodies Kitchen PLAY is giving away. It’s a prize is valued at approximately $70!

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.

Multiple entries are allowed, as long as a separate OREO dessert post is created for each entry. Deadline is Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 12AM PT. So, as you’re baking for the Thanksgiving, add a little Oreo into your tradition!

This sweepstakes will take place again at the holidays, so the earlier you enter, the more chances to win! Full sweepstakes guidelines can be found on the Kitchen PLAY site.

Disclaimer: By participating this month, I did receive an OREO Thanksgiving prize pack from Kitchen Play. However, I am under no obligation to provide a post and or a giveaway. All opinions noted here are my own, always. And, the OREO Thanksgiving prize pack will be given away to my staff and a lil’ thanks to them for all they do.

I LOVE this idea! These are so pretty and I know they must be scrumptious, too. What a simple way to play up dessert for holiday celebrations!

So great that you can have three cookies. That’s just about enough, anyway. Or five, maybe …

The cupcakes look stunning, too!

Glad to hear that you can eat Oreos. I love Oreo infused desserts. The cupcakes look delicious.
