Some of my other favorite chocolate covered treats to make are Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, and Chocolate Covered Cherries.

Variations for chocolate dipped Oreos

Add a filling– Open up the Oreos before dipping them in chocolate and add 1/2 Teaspoon of filling, such as peanut butter, Nutella, or Biscoff cookie spread. Then cover them back up and dip them in chocolate.

Make them for different seasons– For example, you can use red and green sprinkles or melt red baking chocolate for Christmas, use orange and yellow sprinkles and drizzle the tops with orange baking chocolate for Halloween, or decorate with pink hearts for Valentines day. The possibilities are endless! Have fun with it.

Drizzle them- After making these dipped Oreos, drizzle some peanut butter, Dulce de Leche, Marshmallow fluff, or Caramel Sauce.

Frost the tops- Add some new flavor and color with various frostings, such as Marshmallow Frosting, Mint Frosting, Caramel Frosting, Maraschino Cherry Frosting, Easy Orange Frosting, Cream Cheese Frosting, or Strawberry Buttercream Frosting.

Use a different kind of Oreo Cookie- There are so many different flavors that come out, especially around various holidays. Whether it’s mint, carrot cake, or peppermint, each can be dipped in yummy chocolate.

Use different types of chips for melting/dipping– With so many fun choices of baking chips out there, it is fun to try something new, such as mint, peanut butter and chocolate, semi-sweet, and more.

Sprinkle with other options- Instead of just using sprinkles, you can crush up candy canes, use Nerds, crush up Butterfingers or other candy bars, or use other small candies to sprinkle on top of the chocolate.

Tips and techniques for chocolate coated Oreos

What chocolate to use for dipping and coating cookies?– I used regular chocolate chips, but you can use dark chocolate, various baking chips, or chocolate bark to melt down and dip your cookies in.

Don’t burn the chocolate- Because there is no way to fix it and you will end up with chunky burnt bits. If using a microwave to melt the chocolate do it in short intervals and stir in between to prevent burning.

Use parchment or wax paper- To place dipped cookies on so that you don’t have a huge mess to clean up, the chocolate won’t stick to your countertop, and the cookies will have a cleaner look once taken off the paper.

Use a fork- To dip each Oreo in the chocolate and then tap it to the side of the bowl to drain off excess chocolate.

Sprinkle before chocolate sets- You will want to put sprinkles on just after dipping, because otherwise the chocolate will cool and the sprinkles won’t stick. That would be sad!


Room Temperature- Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. 

Fridge- You can store in an airtight container, separating each layer of cookies with parchment paper. However, I recommend simply keeping them at room temperature.

Freezer- Not recommended, because the chocolate won’t stay as delicious or pretty and trying to unthaw them would be tricky without melting them.
