Ingredients You’ll Need
For the full set of instructions and ingredients, please scroll down to the recipe card below.
- White Chocolate: So good, and looks great with sprinkles on top too.
- Milk Chocolate: A big-time favorite, but use dark chocolate if you prefer, or mix them half and half.
- Sprinkles: Gotta have colorful sprinkles in multiple colors. Smash a candy cane with a rolling pin for sprinkling!
Step-By Step Instructions
- Melt the white chocolate in a heat-proof, microwave-safe small bowl set over a saucepan of shallow water – don’t let the bowl touch the water – and bring the water to a gentle boil.
- Stir the chocolate until melted, then transfer to a flat surface and dunk the cookies in one at a time, using a fork to lift them out. Gently tap the sides to release any excess chocolate back into the bowl for a smooth finish.
- Repeat with the milk chocolate.
4. Let the chocolate set for a minute before adding the sprinkles, then set in a cool spot (hello, garage) or the refrigerator or freezer until completely set.
Tips and Possible Variations
- Pro Tip – Dip just one cookie at a time. Dunk a few, add the sprinkles on top just as the chocolate is starting to set. Why? Too melty and the sprinkles will slide right off the side.
- Use any brand or flavor of creme-filled sandwich cookie you’d like for best results. Mint flavor is particularly good, but any flavor will be delicious.
- Use a different kind of chocolate, like dark, for example, or a mixture of the two.
- Try chocolate candy melts in colors like green, pink, blue to change things up. Find these at craft stores or online.
- If the chocolate comes to room temperature and becomes hard to use, microwave it in 30 second intervals until it melts in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Cookie exchanges or holiday parties are the obvious choice for these lovely cookies, and even though they are super simple, they are beloved because they are so, so good.
- Make some other favorite cookies like these Snowflake cookies, this incredible butterscotch shortbread, or this thick, soft, lemon version of shortbread.
- Don’t forget to serve some of this wonderful hot chocolate.
- Or maybe a refreshing mocktail-type of drink like this or this.
- Dress the cookies up in cellophane bags with a pretty ribbon and use them as gifts for birthday parties, a baby shower, Valentine’s Day, or other festive occasions.

Chocolate Covered Oreos
- 16 Oreos or similar style of creme filled sandwich cookie See note
- 6 ounces White Chocolate
- 6 ounces Milk or Dark Chocolate
- Assorted sprinkles and crushed candy canes for garnish See note
- Prepare a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Place a few inches of water into a medium-sized saucepan and bring it to the boil. Set a heatproof bowl inside the saucepan that has a few inches of space to it, you don't want the bowl touch the water. Add the white chocolate first and stir it occasionally over medium heat until melted. Remove the bowl (use a dish towel to hold the sides) and transfer it to a flat surface. Use a paper towel underneath the bowl to prevent slipping.
- One at a time, dunk a cookie into the melted chocolate, and using a fork, gently lift it out, tapping the edge of the bowl to release any excess chocolate. Transfer the cookie to the prepared baking sheet to cool. Let it set for just a minute, and while it's still melted on top, add some sprinkles of your choice.
- Repeat steps with the milk or dark chocolate. No need to wash the bowl where the white chocolate was first. Place the cookies in a cool spot or in the refrigerator to chill and completely set for 30 minutes before serving or packaging for gifting.
- Use any brand of creme-filled sandwich cookie you like. The mint flavor is really nice with these, but any flavor will be delicious.
- Try other types of colored candy melts such as green, pink…whatever color of candy melt you want can be found on the Internet and are easy to use.
