Chocolate Dipped Oreos

Here comes another cute Halloween treat! I can't believe how many easy and yummy treats there are to make with the kids. This one was incredibly easy and *very* fast. You should really try this!

Chocolate Dipped Oreos

  • one package double stuffed oreos
  • one bag york pieces (separate out the white pieces for the eyes)
  • one bag lollipop sticks (you can buy these at the craft store in the candy making aisle)
  • one bag chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • candy corn

Start by lining baking sheets with parchment paper. Insert lollipop sticks gently in the filling of the oreo. If the oreo starts to pop one of the cookies off gently hold it together. If you press too hard you will break the cookie. Trust me, they will hold up. I even cracked a cookie in half and still dunked it in the chocolate. You can't even tell! ;)

Once you have the sticks in all the cookies, bring water to a simmer in the bottom of a double boiler. Place the chocolate chips and oil in the top of the double boiler and stir until it is melted and there are no lumps (this should only take a few minutes). Remove from the heat.

Hold the pan at an angle and dunk the oreo stick in the chocolate until it is covered. Hold it upside down over the pan and let the excess chocolate drip off. Lay it back on the parchment covered baking sheet. Place two of the York pieces on for the eyes and the candy corn for a beak while the chocolate is still wet. Continue until all the cookie pops are done. Dip a toothpick in some of the melted chocolate to dot the eyes.

Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until set. You can either display them using floral foam to hold them up, or use candy corn to support the sticks in the bottom of your container. If you want to give them out, you can use plastic sleeves that can be found at the craft store and tie a ribbon around them. Have fun with the kids making these treats!!
