Ingredients 

Ingredients

  • 14 Oreos, regular or double-stuffed
  • 6 (4 ounce) white chocolate baking bars, chopped or broken into small pieces
  • ½ cup red melting candies
  • ½ cup blue melting candies
  • ¼ cup red, white, & blue sprinkles

Instructions 

  • In a small or medium saucepan, add water about an inch deep, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Place the white chocolate pieces into a medium or large glass bowl, and place the bowl on top of the saucepan. As the chocolate starts to melt, stir it with a wooden spoon or spatula until all of the chocolate has melted and is smooth. (You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave on high for 30 second intervals until it is smooth.)
  • Place your cookie mold on a small cookie sheet or cutting board. Spoon 2 tablespoons of melted white chocolate into each cavity, and lightly shake the mold side-to-side to make sure the chocolate is even.
  • Place one Oreo in the center of each cavity, then pour another tablespoon of chocolate on top of the Oreo. Gently move the mold side-to-side again to make sure the Oreo is covered with chocolate, then tap the mold on the counter to release any bubbles.
  • Put the chocolate-covered Oreos in the freezer for 20 minutes, or until the chocolate is set and the cookies start to pull away from the mold.
  • Melt the red and blue candies separately, either the same way as the white chocolate (on the stove in a glass bowl over simmering water) or in the microwave for 30 seconds until smooth.
  • Pour the melted candies into separate piping bags or ziplock bags and cut a tiny hole at the tip.
  • Drizzle the red and blue melted candies over the chocolate-covered Oreos, and add the sprinkles while the candy is still wet.
  • Let the melted candies set, and serve.

How to make chocolate-covered Oreos

Melt the chocolate. Add water about an inch deep to a small or medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer.

Place the white chocolate pieces into a medium or large glass bowl, and place the bowl on top of the saucepan. As the chocolate starts to melt, stir it with a wooden spoon or spatula until all of the chocolate has melted and is smooth. (You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave on high for 30-second intervals until it is smooth.)

A bowl of white melted chocolate with a spatula, bowls of red, white, and blue sprinkles, and chocolate sandwich cookies on a countertop.

Prepare the cookie molds. Place your cookie mold on a small cookie sheet or cutting board. (This will make the mold easy to transport, especially if you are using a silicone mold.) Spoon two tablespoons of melted white chocolate into each cavity and lightly shake the mold side-to-side to make sure the chocolate is even.

A blue silicone mold with three cavities filled with white batter and three empty cavities. Nearby are a red cloth, a bowl of sandwich cookies, and a bowl containing white batter.

Add the cookies. Place one Oreo in the center of each cavity, then pour another tablespoon of chocolate on top of the Oreo. Gently move the mold side-to-side again to make sure the cookie is covered with chocolate, then tap the mold on the counter to release any bubbles.

Freeze to set. Put the chocolate-covered Oreos in the freezer for 20 minutes or until the chocolate is set and the cookies start to pull away from the mold.

A sheet of parchment paper holds twelve round white chocolate-covered cookies. Nearby are Oreo cookies, a piping bag with red frosting, a bowl of red, blue, and white sprinkles, and a red cloth.

Melt the candies. Melt the red and blue candies separately, either the same way as the white chocolate (on the stove in a glass bowl over simmering water) or in the microwave for 30 seconds until smooth. 

Decorate the cookies. Pour the melted candies into separate piping bags or ziplock bags and cut a tiny hole at the tip. Drizzle the red and blue melted candies over the chocolate-covered Oreos, and add the sprinkles while the candy is still wet.

Questions about dipped Oreos

How far in advance can I make white chocolate-covered Oreos?

This recipe is great for making ahead. You can keep these chocolate-covered Oreos in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.

How do you get chocolate-covered Oreos out of the mold?

If you’ve frozen your cookies as directed, it’s easy to remove them from the mold. They won’t actually freeze in 20-30 minutes, but the chocolate will harden enough that you should be able to gently push the cookies out of the mold.

How long do chocolate-covered Oreos last?

These dipped Oreos will last for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator. Store in an airtight container.

How do you dip Oreos in chocolate without the mold?

Use a fork to gently dip the Oreo into the melted chocolate. Make sure the whole cookie is covered and then place it on a parchment-lined or silicone-lined baking sheet.
