Oh my gosh, these easy to make chocolate covered Oreos are so fun. This may seem crazy, but Oreos are my favorite cookie! Yes, I love homemade cookies, but for some reason, the original Oreo cookie is my favorite cookie ever! I stick to the original Oreo with the regular filling, not the “stuffed” ones. You could make these treats with vanilla Oreos as well. I just bought the chocolate ones because I love chocolate!

Here’s a tidbit about my favorite cookie, and I quote Wikipedia, “Oreo is an American sandwich cookie consisting of two wafers with a sweet crème filling. Introduced on March 6, 1912, Oreo is the best selling cookie brand in the United States. As of 2018, the version sold in the U.S. is made by the Nabisco division of Mondelez International.” In case you missed this post, Valentine’s Day Sour Cream Sugar Cookie Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 package Oreos
  • 1 12- ounce Candy Melts (Pink)
  • 1 12- ounce Candy Melts (Red)
  • 1 package Sucker Sticks
  • 1 cup Sprinkles (for decorating the cookies)
Instructions
  1. Grab a microwave-safe bowl and place the colored candy melts in separate containers. You will need to melt the candy melts in 30-second increments, stirring as needed until you can see they are melted thoroughly. Separate the cookies and place them on parchment paper on a small cookie sheet. Place a stick in the middle of each cookie, "glue" the stick with a little bit of the candy melts to keep the sticks in place. Carefully place the top of the cookie back onto the bottom of the cookie with the stick in place. Dip the cookies in the melted candy melts and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Place the dipped Oreos on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles. Let them set up in the freezer for at least ten minutes. These cookies will keep for 2 weeks if kept cold in the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy.

How do I store these?

Here’s the deal, if your kitchen is warm, the chocolate may soften to the point of melting a bit. I would keep them in the refrigerator placed on parchment paper in an airtight container, if possible.

Can I freeze them?

I would not recommend it because the chocolate may crack and “sweat” when they thaw.

Can I make these without the sticks?

Yes, you can for sure. You can use your fingers to dip them or use a set of Dipping Tools like these.

Final Word

I hope you make these chocolate covered Oreos, I think sometimes we need to step back and have fun with our kids and grandkids. Please let me know if you make these, I love hearing from you! Of course, we need to keep prepping and teaching our families to cook from scratch and learn new skills. But who doesn’t love chocolate, right? May God Bless this world, Linda

    For Christmas, I dipped the oreo thins (chocolate and vanilla) in white and dark chocolate flavored with a small amount of peppermint. They were like the Girl Scout mint cookies. I also used the chocolate chip cookie thins and R–z crackers. They were all very good! To some I added the sprinkles. The family wants them again next year. I think I’ll try vanilla wafers, next time, to see how it turns out.

        My granddaughter likes the sugar wafers (vanilla, chocolate and strawberry) dipped in chocolate (no peppermint!). She says they’re like Twix. I’ve made those for a couple of Christmas’ and she wants them again. Valentine’s Day would be a good time for them, too. And how about chocolate covered graham crackers? I’ve wondered how Nutter Butters would be dipped in chocolate. LOL, no end to the imagination…

          Hi Patty! I’ve seen the white chocolate covered Nutter Butter. They make cute snowmen. Chocolate and Peanut butter go together. That sounds yummy. I think I need to get some Almond bark or chocolate chips and bees wax and make some. I already have the cookies. That is after I eat all my Thin Oreos.

            Yes, I can see how they would be perfect for snowmen! Great idea!
            I’ve been purchasing the Merckens melting wafers on Amazon. They work really well. I haven’t compared the pricing with other melting chocolate.

    Hi Linda! Have you tried the thin Oreos? You can’t make these beautiful ones like this, but they are so good! They come in regular flavor, vanilla, lemon, and mint.

        I like the thin ones as they aren’t as sweet as the regular ones. And they are crunchy. I’ve eaten the lemon and am working on the vanilla. I did buy the regular thin chocolate ones and the mint ones. Hubby’s favorite cookie was the original Oreos, but he can’t have them.

          Hi Deborah, I have got to try those!!! Any Oreo is awesome to me. Well, I have never tried the lemons that I can remember. I don’t really like the double stuff ones either. Now, I want to drive to the grocery store to get a variety of them!!! LOL! I better stay home, I need to stay well. Besides I just made brownies! LOL! I need some chocolate! Linda

            See if Walmart carries them. And if you can order for home delivery. We order snacks from them a lot. Well, hubby does. LOL He likes corn nuts and has just ordered them. He also orders sugar free candies, but I don’t think he gets them from Walmart. Maybe Amazon. They do have sugar free chocolate. They taste good to me, too.

    Here’s a bit of good news for Celiac’s patients…gluten-free Oreos are going to be permanently available starting mid-January! I read it online but cornered the sales rep in a grocery store and he confirmed it. My daughter is over the moon anxiously awaiting the gluten free version.

      Oh. My. Gosh.
      Gluten free Oreos?
      Haven’t been able to eat Oreos for years, I’m SO excited to hear this news!
      I was already thinking….well, I could try Linda’s recipe with a GF sandwich cookie, but now I’m going to wait until I find the Oreos. 🙂

        They’re a tad pricey, around $4.50 a pkg and less quantity. The pkgs are more white than anything so look for that. I bought 4 pkgs for my daughter and she said they were surprisingly good for GF. I found them at WalMart but haven’t seen them in other stores, mostly because I stay home and don’t shop hardly anymore. Another good GF news-Costco has a 2pack of GF bread, 7 grain and in a red pkg. My daughter said that was the closest she’s ever come to tasting real bread again. It’s around $8 for a pkg. My daughter has Marsh Stage 4 Celiac’s and is super super sensitive … we’re always looking out for others that need the same information. Good luck!

    I meant to rate this 5. We have only found them at the duty-free stores on the Canadian side, or Niagara on the Lake. The border has been closed since March, and I am desperately out of cookies.
