What are Chocolate Covered Oreos?

Chocolate-covered Oreos are simply Oreo cookies that have been dipped in chocolate to form a chocolate shell on the sweet sandwich cookie.

I like using a combination of traditional chocolate Oreos and Golden Oreos, but with so many varieties of Oreo cookies now on the market, there are endless possibilities when it comes to making these chocolate cookie treats.

You can simply dip the cookies as they are or place them onto lollipop sticks to turn them into fun Oreo pops. The Oreo pops make great gifts or party favours when placed in a cellophane bag and tied with a bow.

You can use any type of chocolate you like when making these treats. I generally like to use milk chocolate, but dark and white chocolate are both great choices as well. If you want to theme these treats for specific holidays, you can also use coloured candy melts.

Decorate these chocolate-covered cookies with sprinkles, crushed cookies, chopped nuts, or different drizzles of chocolate. The possibilities are endless.

The directions here will work for any sandwich cookie, so if Oreos are not your favourite, you can get creative with Nutter Butters, Fudgeeos, or any other cream-filled cookie you can think of.

Ingredients

For a full list of ingredients and measurements, see the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

You only need three ingredients to make your own homemade chocolate-covered jujubes.

Chocolate melting wafers – You will want a good quality chocolate melting wafer to coat the Oreos. Melting wafers, or candy melts, melt easily and smoothly, creating a nice coating on anything you are dipping. You can use milk, dark, or even white chocolate if you prefer.

Double Stuffed Oreos– You can use traditional chocolate Oreos, golden Oreos, or any of the many fun flavours that are available on the shelves. If you are making Oreo pops, then double-stuffed Oreos will work the best. The extra thick cream filling gives you more room to insert the lollipop stick without breaking the cookies.

Decorations – Decorating these Oreos is a lot of fun, and you can get really creative. Decorate for the holidays by using certain colours or crushed candy canes. Rainbow sprinkles and candy-coated chocolate bits are my favourite, but toffee bits and white chocolate drizzle are great too.

Step by Step Instructions

Making Oreo Pops

Push a lollipop stick into the cream centre of the Oreo between the cookie layers. Press gently so that you don’t accidentally break the cookie. You only need to insert the stick about 1/2 inch for it to hold.

Step 1 – Place the melting wafers in a microwave-safe bowl, measuring cup or mason jar. Heat for 20-second intervals, stirring between intervals until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Pro-Tip: Using a deeper, narrow jar works better than a shallow bowl for coating the Oreo pops as it allows you to simply lower the cookie into the chocolate and pull it straight out. With a shallow bowl, you will have to turn the cookie a few times to make sure it is fully coated.

Step 2 – Lower the Oreo pop into the chocolate until the cookie is fully submerged, then lift it out of the chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off the cookie, then place the Oreo pop on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Repeat until the desired amount of Oreos are coated in chocolate.

While the chocolate is still soft, decorate with sprinkles, crushed cookies, chopped nuts or other decorations as desired. If you are drizzling them with different chocolate, wait until the first coat of chocolate has hardened.

Pro-Tip: If you want an extra thick layer of chocolate on your Oreos, wait until the first coat is fully set, then dip them in the chocolate again. Allow the second coating of chocolate to set before moving them to a container for storage.

Making Chocoalte Covered Oreos (without a stick)

Making chocolate-covered Oreos without a lollipop stick is just as easy as making Oreo pops.

Melt the chocolate in a small bowl, and using a dipping tool or fork, lower the cookie into the chocolate. Turn the cookie in the chocolate until it is coated, then use the tool to lift it out. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off, then move the coated cookie to a parchment-lined sheet and proceed as above.

Substitutions & Variations

Chocolate melting wafers – If you don’t have melting wafers, you can use a good quality chocolate chip instead. In order for them to melt smoothly, you may need to add 1 or 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening.

Double Stuffed Oreos – You can use any variety of Oreo cookies you like. Nowadays, there are so many fun flavours available, including many limited edition varieties for the holidays. However, if Oreos are not your favourite cookie, then any sandwich cookie will work. Nutter Butters, Fudgeeos, or any other sandwich cookie will work just fine.

Decorations – When it comes to decorating your marshmallows and marshmallow pops, you can use anything you like. A drizzle of white or dark chocolate, rainbow sprinklestoffee bits, chopped nuts, crushed candy canes, candy-coated chocolate chips or anything else you can think of.

Equipment

Paper Lollipop sticks – Paper lollipop sticks are perfect for making your Oreo pops. You may find them labelled cake-pop sticks in the baking aisle. If you can’t find lollipop sticks, you can use wooden popsicle sticks.

Chocolate Dipping Tool – If you want to coat individual Oreos without making Oreo pops, you will need a tool to dip the cookie and remove it from the chocolate.

If you don’t have a dipping tool, you could use a fork instead.

Storage

Chocolate-covered Oreos can be stored in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature, and they should keep well for several weeks. If you need to stack them, place a piece of parchment or waxed paper between the layers to prevent them from sticking.

If you live in a warm climate and find that the chocolate melts at room temperature, you can store them in the refrigerator. After chilling, the chocolate may sweat when coming to room temperature, but it is still perfectly delicious and edible.
