What are Candy Melts?

Candy melts are different from chocolate chips or chocolate bars. They are a chocolate flavored ingredient that melts beautifully and comes in a variety of colors.

They are made for baking and are not temperamental, plus it sets up quickly. You can use chocolate chips for this recipe but they will not work quite as well and they take FOREVER to harden up on the Oreo cookie.

Tips

  • Get all of your ingredients together before you start. This recipe {if you can call it that} goes fairly quickly and so having everything you need at your fingertips will help.
  • Microwave for 1 minute, stir the chocolate wafers and then add 20 second intervals. Once the candy melts start to melt it goes really quickly and so adding 20 seconds and stirring will be your best bet. If it isn’t melted, repeat the process.
  • Once you dip the cookie, try to remove as much excess chocolate from the cookie as possible before adding the finishing touches. If you don’t, the excess chocolate will pool around the cookie.
  • Work quickly. Especially when you are making spider webs. In order to get the effect, you need to work on wet chocolate. I recommend only working on one or two cookies at one time.
  • Put the finished Oreos on wax or parchment paper to dry. Doing so will allow you to remove them easily.
  • If the white chocolate in the piping bag starts to harden up, put it onto a paper plate and microwave for 15-20 seconds or until the chocolate is melted.

Halloween Oreo Variations/Substitutions

  • Oreos: Any kind of Oreo cookie will work for this recipe. Try one of their fun flavors like espresso, dark chocolate or even golden.
  • Candy Melts: If you want to add more color, you can purchase any color of the rainbow here.
  • Toppings: Use festive sprinkles, nuts, mini chocolate chips or anything else you have on hand or would look nice.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I store Chocolate Dipped Oreos?

The best way to store chocolate dipped Oreos is in an airtight container. Make sure to add a piece of wax or parchment paper between the layers of cookies so that they don’t stick to one another.

If you use different flavored Oreo cookies, store the cookies separately from one another. Otherwise they may take on the flavor of the other cookies.

How long will Chocolate Covered Oreos last?

Chocolate Covered Oreos will last for a long time. They should be good for at least a week. They can be refrigerated or frozen but just beware that sometimes when the cookies defrost the appearance of the chocolate will change a bit.

What is the difference between white chocolate and candy melts?

White chocolate is actually chocolate and candy melts are a chocolate flavored ingredient. For this recipe I would suggest the candy melts because they are meant for melting and do so wonderfully.

White chocolate can be a bit temperamental when it comes to melting it.

Do these Halloween Oreos need to be refrigerated?

Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos do not need to be refrigerated. They will keep fine at room temperature but you can refrigerate them if you prefer to do so.
