Print your Jack-O-Lantern Chocolate Covered Oreos recipe below:
- 1 bag, orange candy melts
- 10-20 yellow candy melts
- OREO sandwich cookies
- M&M candies, separated so you just have green M&Ms
- Line a baking sheet or cutting board with wax paper.
- Place half a bag of candy melts into a microwave safe dish and heat on high for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. This step is critical, to stir, because the melts can quickly burn. You may find your microwave only requires 1:30 to melt the candy.
- Dip one oreo at a time into the orange candy, coating the back side and flipping the cookie over to coat the other side. I find a fork works best for this task.
- Lift the cookie out of the candy melts and tap the excess, on the side of the bowl and place onto the prepared surface.
- Add a green candy at the top of the oreo for the stem. Repeat until you have the desired number of oreos.
- Let set to harden completely. I like to work with half a bag of candy melts at a time so they don't harden too quickly on me.
- Place 10 yellow candy melts into a sealable sandwich bag, but don't seal. Microwave on high for 10 seconds. Knead the candy until melted, returning it to the microwave in 5 second increments if necessary. Make sure you knead all the lumps out of it, making sure the candy is completely melted.
- Snip the tip of the bag so you have a small opening. Pipe a jack-o-lantern face onto the cookies and let set to dry completely.
I know these Jack-O-Lantern Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies will be the hit of the party!
