You can use golden Oreos and pair them with melted white chocolate. Consider filling cookies with a layer of White Chocolate Fudge and then dipping in melted chocolate for an additional treat.

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 marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, Nutella, or Biscoff cookie spread. Then cover them back up and dip them in chocolate. You can even add a frosting filling such as: Marshmallow Frosting, Mint Frosting, Maraschino Cherry Frosting, Easy Orange Frosting, Cream Cheese Frosting or Strawberry Buttercream Frosting.

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.

Use a different kind of Oreo Cookie- There are so many different flavors that come out, especially around various seasons. 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, peppermint, peanut butter, butterscotch and more.

Sprinkle options- Instead of just using sprinkles, you can use crushed up candy canes, Nerds, chopped up Butterfingers or other candy bars, or use other small candies like m&m, nuts, dried fruits, shredded coconut.

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 various baking chips, or chocolate bark or even candy melts for dipping.

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 toppings 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.


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- This is not recommended, because the chocolate coating may crack as it thaws.
