Best Chocolate for Chocolate Covered Oreos
When making chocolate covered Oreos I have found that the best chocolate to use is candy melts. Candy melts are not as temperamental as chocolate and it is much easier to work with compared to chocolate chips.
When I made these chocolate covered Oreos I used white chocolate candy melts and drizzled dark chocolate candy melts on top of them. When you are making them you can use white chocolate candy melts, dark chocolate candy melts or milk chocolate candy melts as the base and pick whichever other colored chocolate candy melts you want to drizzle on the top of them. You can also use colored candy melts and melt them just the same.
What flavor Oreo Cookie should I use?
You can use any flavor Oreo cookie that you want to. For these I used chocolate Oreo sandwich cookies, but you can use the vanilla ones or the different flavored ones as well.
How to Melt Candy Melts
When you are melting candy melts there are multiple ways to do it, however I find it best to use the microwave when I am working with candy melts and Oreo cookies.
To melt candy melts in the microwave you need to use a microwave safe bowl. Pour the chocolate into the bowl and then microwave the candy melts in 30-second increments until completely melted, making sure you don’t burn it.
How to Dip Oreos in Chocolate
You can use a fork, a spoon or your fingers but I find that to be messy. I suggest grabbing this Dipping Tool 3-Piece Set that will make it MUCH easier to dip the Oreos in chocolate.
Dip the Oreo cookie into the chocolate while on the dipper making sure you cover all of the cookie. Then tap the dipper gently agains the bowl you have melted the chocolate in to get off any excess chocolate and then lay flat on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
I find it best to use a bowl or a short glass when melting the chocolate to make it easier to dip the Oreos in the chocolate.
Chocolate Covered Oreos Cookie toppings
One thing I love about these cookies is how easy they are to customize. Aside from customizing the flavor of chocolate and drizzling more chocolate on top of them you can decorate them easily too.
I like to sometimes decorate mine with sprinkles. All you have to do is give the sprinkle container a shake on top while the chocolate is still warm, right after you set the cookies on the tray to cool.
If you are wanting Halloween Oreos you can sprinkle some fun Halloween sprinkles. Want Christmas Oreos use some red candy melts and add some Christmas sprinkles. Having a birthday party, use coordinating candy melts and sprinkles to decorate them to match. I could go on and on but you get the point.
Can you Freeze Chocolate covered Oreos?
I do not suggest freezing these chocolate covered cookies. I also do not recommend leaving these cookies in sunlight or a hot area. All of these things will disrupt the chocolate that you have dipped them in.
How to Store Chocolate Covered Oreos
Chocolate covered Oreo cookies will stay fresh when they are stored in an air tight container at room temperature. When you are storing them in an airtight container you will want to layer the cookies on a single layer. Then place a piece of parchment paper and layer more. Continue doing this until you have filled up the container.
Using parchment paper between the chocolate dipped cookies will keep them from sticking together. It will also make it easier to remove the cookies from the container.
