Variations Ideas:

  • Chocolate Chips. Substitute chocolate chips for melting wafers in this recipe. Melted chocolate is delicious. You can use milk chocolate, semi sweet or dark chocolate.
  • Oreo Variations. Try different types of Oreo cookies instead of traditional. Some tasty ideas include: Golden, Peanut Butter and Double Stuff.
  • Toppings. You can use different types of Halloween sprinkles in this recipe. Other fun ideas to try include: crushed cookies, pretzels, candy corn and more.
  • Colors of candy melts. Substitute various colors of candy melts for lots of new creations.
  • Food coloring. Feel free to use food coloring to dye white chocolate and drizzle on top or to dip the cookie in.

Instructions for Halloween Oreo Recipe:

  • Prepare the baking sheet. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
  • Get out microwave safe bowls to melt the candy. Place each of the candy melts in a separate microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until fully melted. Be careful not to over heat.
  • Start dipping the Oreo cookies. Then place an Oreo in the melted candy and use a fork to remove the Oreo carefully.
  • Remove any excess. While the Oreo is on the fork gently tap the fork against the side of the bowl to remove any excess candy from the Oreo.
  • Top with sprinkles. Then place the Oreos on the baking sheet and top with the Halloween sprinkles and candy eyes before they dry.

  • Allow to dry. Let them sit at room temperature for approximately 1 hour to set and then enjoy!

How to Make Monster Halloween Oreos:

  • Melt purple candy melts in the microwave. It is best to melt using 30 second intervals to prevent burning.
  • Dip the Oreo cookies into the melted green candy.
  • After each cookie has been coated, place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Put candy eyeballs on each cookie before the candy sets.
  • Allow to dry and then store.

You can also use green candy melts and place just one eyeball on the covered Oreo cookies. This will resemble Mike from Monsters Inc. If your kids love this movie, give this a try.

How to Make Mummy Chocolate Covered Oreos:

  • Melt the white candy melts in 30 second intervals in the microwave. Continue until it is completely melted.
  • Dip each oreo into the candy melts.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place 2 candy eyeballs before it sets.
  • Then drizzle more white chocolate on top of the cookie. Just use a fork and go back and forth until you are satisfied with how it looks.
  • Another option is to place the melted candy in a ziploc bag and cut the corner off. You can then pipe back and forth to make it look like a mummy.
  • Allow it to dry completely before storing.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Remove excess chocolate. While dipping the cookies, gently tap the edge of the fork against the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  • Melt one color at a time. You will need several microwave safe bowls to melt the candy.
  • Add toppings while still wet. If you wait too long to add the sprinkles or toppings, they will not stick to the Oreo. Toppings should be added right away.
  • Prepare the pan. I recommend placing a sheet of parchment paper on the pan before placing the cookies. This will catch any drips and make cleanup so easy.

How to store Halloween Oreos:

Make sure the cookies are completely dry. Then place inside an airtight container. I would separate the layers with wax paper to prevent them from sticking.

They can be stored at room temperature up to 2 weeks. The cookies do not need to be refrigerated but make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight or near the oven. You do not want to store them where it will get warm.
