Frequently Asked Questions

Should I refrigerate chocolate covered Oreos?

Room temperature is fine for the cookies. The key is making sure they are in a container that is airtight.

How do you melt candy melts?

Place you candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave starting at 1 minute. Then remove the bowl from the microwave and stir, then place back in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

Continue doing this until your candy melts are completely melted.

We used white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. You can also use chocolate candy melts if you prefer. Just make sure to use high-quality chocolate and ingredients. I like ghirardelli.
