Chocolate Covered Oreos are super easy to make and delicious. Use any flavor of Oreos, and whatever chocolate coating you please—these sweet treats are chocolate heaven!
I love these perfect bite, the creamy chocolate on the outside and Oreo crunch center. They look adorable and really only require a handful of steps to achieve! Your kids will even love to get in on the fun. For more bite-size Oreo magic try Mickey Mouse Oreos, Oreo Truffles, and Oreo Pudding Cookies.
Who loves Chocolate Dipped Oreos?!
I do, I do! I mean I am a chocolate lover, and I can never get enough of those Oreo sandwich cookies. I’m always up for a good cookies and cream dessert. And who doesn’t love chocolate, and more chocolate?
I mean really, these chocolate covered Oreo’s are delicious. They look so festive too! These elevated dipped Oreos are perfectly sweet and oh so cute with sprinkles on top. You can get creative with those decorations too. Try themed sprinkles, or drizzle a colored white chocolate over top for a bit of fun.
These make cute gifts as well. Wrap them up in cellophane for a quick and easy present. Or bring them to your next playdate or party. They are sure to impress!
How to Make Chocolate Covered Oreos
MELT. In a sauce pan over LOW heat melt the candy coating. Stir constantly.
COAT. Use a fork to dip each Oreo in the chocolate. Cover completely then gently tap the fork against the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate.
SPRINKLE. Place the covered Oreo on a piece of parchment paper and top with the sprinkles.
COOL. Allow them to cool and dry completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Chocolate Foot: A chocolate foot is created when excess coating pools around the base of the treat. To help prevent this allow excess coating to drip off before placing on the parchment paper to set. If you do notice chocolate beginning to pool, use a toothpick to “cut” the pool away from the treat. If a foot has set, simply break/trim it off.
Benefits of using candy coating
You can use chocolate chips in a pinch, but I recommend using a high quality melting chocolate or candy coating. We love the Ghirardelli melting wafers for dipping fruit and candies and chocolate. Almond bark and baking chocolates also work.
- Candy coating doesn’t develop the chalky white substance sometimes found with chocolate chips. So you can store them for quite awhile and they look as delicious as the day they were made.
- Unlike chocolate which can be thick when dipped, the candy coating melts with a thin even layer and the finish is super smooth.
- Super easy to melt in the microwave or use a saucepan on the stove.
Change it Up
Types of Oreo: There are so many different types of Oreos. From chocolate to golden and regular cream to peanut butter cream. I haven’t found an Oreo that I didn’t like especially when covered with an added layer of delicious candy coating.
Not only can you switch up the type of Oreo used but you can have fun with colors and toppings. Be creative!
- Add food coloring to white chocolate or vanilla candy coating
- Drizzle pattern. Once the dipped Oreo has set, use more melted candy to drizzle a pattern on top. You can even use contrasting colors to make the pattern “pop”.
- Oreo Lollipop: Stick a sucker stick into the cream of the Oreo. Dip the Oreo in chocolate. Dry. Wrap individually with cellophane or sucker baggie.
- Sprinkles: Be sure to add when the coating is wet.
- Holiday sprinkles
- Chopped nuts
- Crushed candy cane
- Mini M&Ms
- Coconut flakes
