Everyone loves fireworks on the 4th of July, but let’s be honest, all I care about are these Reese’s Firecracker Oreos! Perfect for potluck dessert ideas!
Can Oreos Hurt a Dog?
If your dog has eaten a lone Oreo, she’s probably fine.
But Oreos aren’t recommended for dogs.
Of course, chocolate is toxic to dogs, but there’s not enough baking chocolate in an Oreo to cause immediate alarm.
Moreover, Oreos contain a lot of sugar, which dogs should avoid.
What is it about fireworks that everyone loves so much? I guess I’m a bit of a crabby old lady because I’ve never really cared that much for fireworks. I can appreciate a good show, we grew up with Fort Vancouver fireworks which were pretty good. But even then it was just a rainy, chilly night down at the fort so I never really cared that much. I did like that the music went with the show which doesn’t happen much anymore. Now firecracker oreos are another story.
I can totally get behind something like this. Oreos dipped in red, white and blue candy melts, a Reese’s peanut butter cup for the base and chocolate fuse? Heck. Yes.
Are Oreos Gluten Free?
Unfortunately not, as we use wheat in the Oreo recipe.
Oreo products do not contain nut or nut traces.
Is Oreo suitable for lactose/dairy free diets?
No, because of the cross contact of milk.
I always care more about the holiday spread than those noisy fireworks. Although, and I cannot believe I’m going to say this, I am starting to enjoy them a little more lately.
Our kids LOVE fireworks and there’s something so magical about watching them light up with joy at every burst. And a slice of pie or these oreos helps my inner joy even more.
Can You Eat Oreos When Pregnant?
Yes a pregnant women can eat Oreo cookies.
The only trick to this “recipe” is to do all of the cookie layers (blues, whites, reds) instead of each firecracker. That gives the blues a little time to set up so it’s ready for the next layer. If you make an entire firecracker in one whack the chocolate will slide down off the oreos and end up on the parchment whereas a dry layer will stop the candy melts from sliding.
