Prep Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

These fun chocolate covered oreos are decorated in red white and blue perfect for any July 4th celebration!

Ingredients

  • Oreos
  • White Candy Coating or Almond Bark
  • Vegetable Oil or melted coconut oil
  • Blue & Red Candy melts

Instructions

  1. Add candy wafers or almond bark to a glass measuring cup.
  2. Microwave for 60 seconds.
  3. Using a spoon, poke at the chocolate to see if it has started to melt at all, if not its okay.
  4. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each time.
  5. This should take 3-5 times.  Be careful not to overheat it, it will burn.
  6. Once you can stir the chocolate you will probably need to add a little bit of coconut oil.
  7. Once your chocolate is fluid (runs smoothly off the spoon) you are ready.
  8. Fill the cavity of the mold 2/3 way full.  Press the Oreos into the chocolate.  Add a little more melted chocolate if it isn’t covered.
  9. Place in the freezer for 10 min.
  10. Pop the Oreos out once the chocolate has set.  Melt the red and blue candy melts in their respective bags.  Cut a small tip off the bottom and create designs on the top of the oreos and add sprinkles immediately.

Notes

Using almond bark, vanilla candy coating or melting wafers will yield a shiner presentation than just using white chocolate chips.  Almond bark is not made from almonds.  Depending on where you are in the world the vanilla candy coating is called different things.  

While you can melt the candy coating in a microwavable bowl, melting it in a glass measuring cup will hold the heat and consistency longer.

If your coating doesn’t flow off your spoon, add ½ tsp of vegetable oil or melted coconut oil to thin it out until it flows off the spoon.
