  • 20 Oreos any flavor
  • 10 ounces white chocolate chips (or candy melts different color)
  • Food coloring
  • 1 cup sprinkles of choice


Melt the chocolate. (Choose ONE option, whichever you prefer.) 

  • Option 1: Double boiler method. Fill a small or medium pan with one or two inches of warm water.Bring it to simmer over medium heat, and once water is heated through and steam released add the bowl on top. NOTE: The glass bowl should not get in contact with water. Add in the chocolate chips and stir constantly until about 70% of the chips are melted. Remove from the heat and continue to stir with a spatula until everything has melted and smooth.
  •  Option 2: Microwave Method. Place the candy melts in a small bowl and microwave for 30 second intervals until the chocolate is melted.

Color The Chocolate

  • Divide melted chocolate into two or more bowls if you are going to be using different colors.
  • Add desired food coloring to one bowl according to packaging instructions.
  • Alternatively, you can use colored candy melts and melt them the same way as described above.
  • For a very smooth consistency add a drizzle of coconut or olive oil to the melting chocolate.

Dip the Oreos in Chocolate

  • Using two forks, dip each Oreos into the chocolate.

Decorate The Cookies

  • Carefully transfer the cookies to a cooling rack or parchment paper.
  • Decorate the cookies by adding sprinkles, and/or candies, or drizzle with colored chocolate.

Chill The Cookies

  • Let the cookies cool for a couple of minutes and then refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. 


Recipe Tips:

  • Thin Out The Chocolate. If your melted chocolate looks and feels too thick, simply stir in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil or coconut oil. Both are good options since they are flavorless. 
  • Candy Melts or Chocolate Wafers. White almond bark, candy melts or Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers can be used for coating these chocolate covered oreos instead of chocolate chips. If you do use candy melts or wafers, it’s unlikely that you will need to add in any oil while melting the chocolate to achieve a smooth consistency since these product options don’t usually contain stabilizers as an ingredient, enabling them to melt much better into a smooth consistency without the aid of oil. 
  • Use Tweezers. Using a pair of clean craft tweezers will make it much easier to apply any decorative edible pearls or sprinkles. It’s also a great way to ensure a precise placement of the edible decoration but this is totally optional. 
  • Sprinkles!! While you could leave your chocolate coated Oreos plain, if you do add sprinkles, make sure to do so when the chocolate is still wet so that they have a chance to stick adequately to the Oreos. 
  • High-quality Chocolate. Always use a high quality chocolate when coating your Oreos. This can apply to any chocolate-covered treat. You will always get smoother melted chocolate results when using a good quality chocolate!
  • Chocolate Melting Method. I prefer melting chocolate over a double boiler since microwaving chocolate (although still an option) has a greater risk of burning chocolate and once burnt, there’s no going back - you’ll have to throw the chocolate away and start from the beginning. 
  • Leftover Chocolate. If you have any leftover melted chocolate, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It can be melted again using the double boiler method when you want to make an extra batch of these Valentine’s Day chocolate covered Oreos or to coat or decorate other sweet treats.
