Empire Premiere | Cookie-Style with Golden OREOS

Besides clothes, I think my second favorite part about fall is season premieres of television shows. I await my favorites and welcome new series with an open mind, but no watch party is complete without snacks. Whether I have a friend over to enjoy the show with or I'm watching solo, the perfect foodie spread is a must!

I've been chowing down on these BOGO free California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas this week from Target. I picked up a few boxes of the Sicilian flatbread for tonight's tray complete with wine, popcorn, cheese + grapes, and...GOLD OREO COOKIES. 😳

What better way to welcome a brand new drama-filled season of Empire and the Cookie Lyon (aka Taraji P. Henson) than with cookies?! I wanted something a bit more glamorous than regular ol' chocolate chip. I almost always have OREO cookies in my kitchen, so when I spotted some gold ones on Pinterest, I knew they'd be perfect!

I picked up a can of the gold Wilton edible color mist from Hobby Lobby (used my 40% coupon from the website) and evenly sprayed approximately 8 spaced out cookies at a time on a paper plate. I waited until the first side was completely dry before spraying the opposite side.

I love the OREO Thins, but I'd recommend doing this on the originals. Some of the cookies became a bit fragile after spraying with the gold mist because they were so thin. They were so cute once they were completely dry and added a glam touch to my Empire snack tray.
