  • Oreos: The star of the show, Oreos add the perfect crunch and flavor. Any sandwich cookie will work; golden Oreos, peppermint, even Double Stuf! Consider using leftover sandwich cookies to make an Oreo Brownie or a Mini French Silk Pie.
  • Chocolate Candy Melts: Ideal for coating, they create a sleek, shiny finish. Candy melts are commonly available in craft stores and supermarkets. While I prefer Ghirardelli melting wafers for their flavor and consistency, you can also use regular melted chocolate or almond bark. If unavailable, high-quality chocolate chips are a great alternative; just add a quarter teaspoon of coconut or vegetable oil. Remember to melt them slowly and cautiously to prevent burning. Use leftover chocolate melting wafers in Microwave Fudge and Chocolate Candies.
  • Sprinkles (optional): Add a pop of color and fun. Decorate these cookies for any holiday using classic jimmies, crushed candy, or finely chopped nuts – the decorating possibilities are endless!

Recipe Variations

Here are a few creative variations of the Chocolate Covered Oreos recipe to inspire you:

  • White Chocolate Raspberry: Dip Oreos in white chocolate and top with freeze-dried raspberry pieces for a fruity twist.
  • Caramel Drizzle: After dipping in chocolate, drizzle with caramel for added sweetness.
  • Sea Salt Topping: Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on the chocolate-coated Oreos for a savory contrast.
  • Lemon Zest Infusion: Add lemon zest to your white chocolate for a citrusy, refreshing take.
  • Spice it up: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to your melted chocolate for a kick of heat.
  • Holiday cheer: Decorate your Oreos with festive sprinkles or crushed candies for a Christmas or Halloween treat.
  • Chocolate and White Chocolate Drizzle: For a visually striking and delicious twist, drizzle white chocolate over dark chocolate-covered Oreos, and dark chocolate over white chocolate-covered ones.

How To Make Chocolate Covered Oreos

These step-by-step photos and instructions help you visualize how to make a small batch of chocolate covered Oreo cookies. See the recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  1. Baking Sheet Preparation: Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Keep it ready for use.

  1. Melting Chocolate: Follow the directions on the chocolate package for melting. I usually melt it in a microwave, heating it in 15-second intervals and stirring until it’s smooth. If you want variety, melt two types of chocolate (like white and dark) in separate bowls. However, using just one kind of chocolate works too.

  1. Dipping Oreos: Take a fork and dip one Oreo at a time into the bowl of melted chocolate. Make sure to turn the Oreo over to coat it completely. After coating, lift the Oreo out with the fork, gently tapping it on the edge of the bowl and lightly shaking to let any excess chocolate drip off. Then, place it on the prepared baking sheet.

  1. Adding Sprinkles and Drizzle: Sprinkle your choice of decorations on the Oreos while the chocolate is still soft. For a chocolate drizzle, wait until the base chocolate layer hardens, then drizzle the second type of chocolate over the top.

Pro Tip: Feel free to get creative with decorating your cookies. Drizzle with melted chocolate, pipe on designs, or dip half an Oreo in each color for a fun swirl effect.

Melting Chocolate Using A Water Bath

If you don’t have a microwave, melting chocolate for these Oreos is still easy with a water bath method.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill a small saucepan with about 1 inch of water. Bring it to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
  2. Nestle a heat-proof glass or metal bowl (stainless steel works great!) directly on top of the saucepan. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  3. Add your chocolate pieces to the bowl. Lower the heat and watch the magic unfold.
  4. Stir the chocolate frequently with a spatula as it melts. Patience is key – it might take 3-4 minutes for the chocolate to melt.
  5. Once melted, remove the bowl from the heat and pat it dry. You’re now ready to dip your Oreos and create these delightful treats!

This technique ensures a gentle and even melting of the chocolate, perfect for coating your Oreos.

Expert Tips

  • Quality Chocolate: Choose high-quality chocolate for a better taste and smoother coating.
  • Melt your chocolate carefully: Use a microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring in between, until smooth and melted. Overheating is the enemy of shiny chocolate!
  • Even Coating: Use a fork to dip Oreos in chocolate for an even coating.
  • Cooling Time: Allow the chocolate to fully set before serving for the best texture.
  • Storage: Keep in an airtight container to maintain freshness.

Serving Suggestions

Transform these cookies into a delightful treat for any occasion. Here are some serving ideas:

  • Party Platter: These beauties are the life of any party! Arrange them on a platter with other treats like Pecan Pralines, Thumbprint Cookies, and Shortbread Bites for a crowd-pleasing spread.
  • With Ice Cream: Crumble them over vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.
  • Afternoon pick-me-up: Need a little something to get you through the day? Pop one (or two, we won’t judge) of these in your mouth and say goodbye to the slump.
  • Gift Idea: Package them up in a cute box and tie on a ribbon – instant homemade gift that anyone will love.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I dip other cookies in melted chocolate?

Sure! Try Nutter Butters, graham crackers, or even pretzels for a salty-sweet twist.

What do I do if my chocolate is not setting?

It might be too warm. Pop your chocolate covered Oreos in the fridge for a few minutes, and they should solidify right up.

How long will Oreos dipped in chocolate last?

Stored properly, they can last up to 2 weeks at room temperature stored in an airtight container or in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Can I freeze chocolate covered Oreos?

Yes, they freeze well for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
