Easy To Make Chocolate Covered Oreos
I’m absolutely in love with these easy to make chocolate covered Oreos. Do you love Oreos too? They are definitely my favorite cookie. Even though I enjoy home baked cookies, nothing can beat the classic Oreo cookie. I stick the original Oreo with the regular filling, not the “stuffed” one. You could make these with the vanilla Oreos as well. I just bought the chocolate ones, because I love chocolate!
Easy to make chocolate covered Oreos are the perfect treat! They’re so fun, and they’re beautiful.
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
Kitchen Items You Will Need
- 2 Microwaveable Bowls
- Cookie Sheet (a small one – it needs to go in the freezer)
- Parchment or Wax Paper
Chocolate Covered Oreos Ingredients
- Oreos: A popular sandwich cookie consisting of two chocolate wafers with a sweet creme filling in between.
- Sucker or Lollipop Sticks: A confectionery stick, usually made of wood or plastic. One end of the stick is pushed into the Oreo cookie to hold it in place and the other end is used to hold onto the stick while dipping into the melted chocolate.
- Pink Candy Melts: A type of pink candy coating made from vegetable oil, sugar, and other artificial ingredients. They are often used for baking and candy making, as they can be melted and molded into various shapes and sizes. They give desserts a sweet, creamy consistency and are often used to add color and flavor to cakes, cupcakes, and other confections.
- Red Candy Melts: A type of red colored confectionery coating usually made from cocoa butter, sugar, milk solids and food coloring. They can be melted and used for dipping or drizzling onto cakes, cookies or other treats. They are also commonly used for decorating items such as cupcakes, cake pops and other desserts.
- Sprinkles (color of choice): Little bits of chocolate-flavored candies, typically made with white chocolate that doesn’t melt. Sold in a variety of colors. Adds a fun flare to the Sugar Cookies without using food coloring that can’t be beaten!
Easy To Make Chocolate Covered Oreos
Gather all of your ingredients.
Step One: Melt Pink Candy Melts – 30 Second Increments
Grab a microwave-safe bowl and place the colored (pink) candy melts in the container. You will need to melt the candy melts in 30-second increments, stirring as needed until you can see they are melted thoroughly.
Step Two: Melt Red Candy Melts – 30 Second Increments
Grab a microwave-safe bowl and place the colored (red) candy melts in the container. You will need to melt the candy melts in 30-second increments, stirring as needed until you can see they are melted thoroughly.
Step Three: Separate the Oreos – Place on Cookie Sheet
Separate the cookies and place them on parchment paper on a small cookie sheet.
Step Four: Place Stick in Middle of Each Cookie – Reassemble Cookie
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 cookie back onto the bottom of the cookie with the stick in place.
Step Five: Dip Some Cookies in Melted Pink Candy Melts
Dip the cookies in the melted pink candy melts and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Let them set up in the freezer for at least ten minutes. Place the dipped Oreos on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles.
Step Six: Dip Other Cookies in Melted Red Candy Melts
Dip the cookies in the melted red candy melts and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Let them set up in the freezer for at least ten minutes. Place the dipped Oreos on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles.
Step Seven: Decorate Chocolate Covered Oreos – as Desired
Drizzle with white chocolate if desired. There are so many ways to “decorate” these!
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 or a fork to dip them or use a set of Dipping Tools like these.
What are some variations that can be made with these chocolate covered Oreos?
I really love these chocolate covered Oreos as is! There are so many options!
In place of the pink or red chocolate candy melts, you are welcome to use melted milk, white, or dark chocolate bars or semi-sweet chocolate chips, or Ghirardelli melting wafers.
I love the easy of the candy melts, but it is fun to try other forms of chocolate and then top with your favorite decorative toppings. Which variation is your favorite?

Easy to make, beautiful and yummy! These will be a big hit!
Hi Tiffany, our kids and grandkids love making these! 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.
Hi Patty, oh my gosh, now we’re all going to be buying oreo thin and ritz crackers! Oh my gosh, this is awesome! Linda
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, WHAT??? oh my gosh, what a great idea! I need to add sugar wafers to my grocery list!! And graham crackers and Nutter Butters! Wow, the possibilities are enormous! Bring on the dipping! Linda
Let’s take a stroll down the cookie aisle!
HI Patty, we need to take that stroll down the cookie aisle right now!!! Linda
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.
Hi Deborah, no I haven’t but I will now!! I don’t know why these are my favorite cookies, but they are! Linda
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.
Hi Deborah, great idea!! I will go online now. Linda
These look sooo good and the recipe looks sooo easy! What a fun way to eat Oreos! These would be fun to make with my kids and give out as gifts! Can’t wait! Thank you for sharing!❤️
Hi Camille, oh you will love making these as a family! Kids love dipping them and then decorating them! Linda
So fun making these with my kids! We loved them!
Hi Alli, oh my gosh, I love hearing this, thanks for letting me know! Linda
Oh Boy! Another thing to add to my fattening repertoire! You do realize that you cannot just make these for the Kids and Grand kids right?! You are always so creative!!! Who doesn’t like sweet on top of sweet. Another great one…Stay safe (Bill)
Hi Bill, oh my gosh, you always make me smile! I wish I didn’t like sweets but I do!! Thank you, my friend! Linda
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.
Hi Robbie, WHAT?????? Oh my gosh, this is so awesome!!!!! Gluten-free Oreos for Celiac patients is a blessing! I feel like skipping around the block over this!! I LOVE it! Linda
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!
Thanks Robbie! I’ll be sure to check for them next time I go to Walmart. Even if they’re a bit pricey, oh I’m still gonna buy them. LOL
OK, First of all…..HOW can you make enough of them to LAST TWO weeks…..lol…..Second …..picture maple leaf shaped chocolate cookie with maple sugar center dipped in dark chocolate. IF Canada ever reopens their borders I will restock our maple sugar cookies.
Hi Chris, I know, right?? Two weeks, or 2 days or 2 hours!!! I love your comment! You got me on the dark chocolate! I have got to find these maple leaf cookies you are talking about. RIGHT.NOW. Yummy, Linda
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.
Hi Chris, we need those cookies!!! Thanks for the 5 star!! I keep reading all these ideas from readers, I need to try all of these! Linda
