Tips and Tricks
- Double Boiler. If you do not want to melt the candy in a microwave, feel free to use a double boiler. Either method is fine to make White Chocolate Covered Oreos.
- Stir the candy melts frequently. Make sure that you melt the candy in intervals and stir in between each one. You don’t want to burn it.
- Add the sprinkles right away. Top the cookies with sprinkles before the chocolate sets or they won’t stick.
- Reheat the candy melts. If the candy melts or chocolate start to harden, place it back in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir.
- Shake off excess chocolate. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to help remove any excess chocolate from each cookie. This will help to prevent it from forming a pool of chocolate around the cookie as it sets.
- Line the baking pan with wax paper. Save yourself some time and line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. This will make clean up so much easier.
- Use a toothpick to remove a chocolate pool on the baking sheet. If you do happen to notice a pool of chocolate around the cookies, use a toothpick to remove.
