SIMPLE Chocolate Covered Halloween oreo Cookies - white and dark chocolate dipped with sprinkles and spooky edible eyes

SIMPLE Chocolate Covered Halloween Oreos

  • Yield: 30 Oreo Cookies 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • Approximately 30 Oreo Cookies
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable shortening, divided
  • 3/4 Cup Chocolate chips
  • 3/4 Cup Bright White chocolate melting wafers
  • 3/4 Cup Orange chocolate melting wafers
  • Sprinkles, to decorate
  • Candy Eyes, to decorate

Instructions

  1. In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir.
  2. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Stir again. By this point, your chocolate should be smooth and ready to dip.
  3. Dip the Oreos one at a time into the chocolate, flipping it over to coat the entire Oreo evenly. Use a fork to remove the Oreo from the chocolate and tap the fork lightly on the edge of the bowl to allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
  4. Place the chocolate covered Oreo on a parchment lined baking sheet or a baking rack—this will keep it from sticking once the chocolate has cooled.
  5. Decorate the Oreo with candy eyes or sprinkles, or a drizzle of white or orange chocolate. Make sure to add any decorations before the chocolate has hardened or they won’t stick.
  6. Repeat with 9 additional Oreos.
  7. Repeat the same melting process for the remaining two chocolates. Place the finished Oreos in the refrigerator and allow them to chill for at least 20 minutes. This will help set the chocolate.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Notes

You can substitute white chocolate for the candy wafers in this recipe, although white chocolate is difficult to melt and can burn easily. Candy wafers are highly recommended.

Because the candy wafers harden so quickly, it is recommended to only work on one color of the chocolate at a time.

Other great colors for Halloween would be green or purple!

1/4 teaspoon of gel food coloring can also be substituted for colored wafer. for every 3/4 cup of wafer. Do not use gel liquid.

You must use vegetable shortening in this recipe. Vegetable oil and/or butter are not recommended substitutions.

Lastly, sprinkles were used for this recipe, however craft stores will also have edible pumpkins, ghosts, and witch hats.
