In the vibrant college community of Manhattan, KS, fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The entire community turns purple, silver and white in honor of its cherished K-State Wildcats football team led by the famed Coach Bill Snyder. From surprise appearances around town by the marching band and the school mascot, to community festivals and Wear-Your-Purple-to-Work Fridays, it’s a fun and exciting home-town experience.
This year I wanted to kick off the start of fall football with something decorative and sweet. I came across these “embellished Oreos” from SoCreativeThings.com, and instantly starting planning my purple, silver and white tailgate treat!
- Oreo Cookies (Double Stuf)
- White Frosting
- Cookie Embellishments – like sprinkles, sparkling sugar and candy pearls
- Icing Decorating Bag with Small Decorating Tip
- Evermine Small White Gift Boxes
- Evermine Small Rectangle Labels - (2.5 x 1.25) "Joy of Scrolls" style in purple
- Evermine Square Labels - (1.9 x 1.9) "Joy of Scrolls" style in purple
- Parchment Paper to line the inside of your favor boxes
- Step #1 – Add a couple spoonfuls of cake frosting to your decorating bag with a small decorating tip.
- Step #2 – Squeeze a small amount of frosting around the middle of the Oreo, enough for the cookie embellishments to stick.
- Step #3 – Roll the frosted Oreo in the embellishment of your choice. I chose purple and white candy pearls of different sizes, as well as sparkling silver sugar to match K-State school colors.
- Step #4 – Place the baking sheet parchment paper in the bottom of your Evermine gift box and carefully place 4 embellished cookies inside.
- Step #5 – Add Evermine labels to the top and front of each box for a perfectly custom gift.
I decided to hand out my Oreo Tailgate Treats to friends and family to commemorate the first home football game. I can also see these being very versatile for any occasion. Simply change the cookie embellishments to match your color scheme and you’ve got a fantastic birthday party, baby shower or wedding favor for guests to take home!
