Chocolate Dipped OREO Cookies are a holiday staple. I have been making them since I was a little kid. I remember making a big mess in the kitchen with my brother and sister. My sister was the neat one and made her cookies look perfect, my brother would dip a few and then just start eating, and I would go crazy with ALL of the toppings. Mine weren’t the prettiest, but man were they tasty. We always had so much fun.
This year, I wanted to carry on our family tradition and make Chocolate Dipped OREO Cookies with Caleb and Maxwell. They love OREO cookies and when I told them we were going to dip them in chocolate, their eyes lit up. OREO cookies AND chocolate? A dream come true!
We went all out and dipped three kinds of Oreo cookies-regular, winter, and peppermint. We dipped the cookies in chocolate and white chocolate. I put out several toppings for decorating-sprinkles, crushed candy canes, chopped nuts, and coconut. Feel free to use whatever toppings you want! It’s fun to have a variety.
The boys were so excited and had a BLAST! OREO cookie eyes:)
Josh and I supervised, but we let them go to town. We knew it was going to get messy, but that was all part of the fun!
The boys did a great job, they are our little holiday helpers.
Of course, there was tasting along the way. You can’t put out cookies, chocolate, and sprinkles and expect the kids to stay perfectly clean and not have a taste. They had chocolate faces by the end. Shhh, I had to have a few tastes too:)
The winter OREO cookies are red on the inside and made a very pretty chocolate dipped cookie. Caleb’s favorite color is red so he bit into a few cookies until he found a red one:)
The holiday sprinkles made the outside of the cookies extra festive.
My favorite combo was the Peppermint OREO cookies dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. Pure heaven!! I am hiding these ones from the boys:)
I am so happy the boys had fun making Chocolate Dipped OREO cookies. It was fun bringing back a family tradition from my childhood. We are going to make Chocolate Dipped OREO cookies every year so we can experience many moments of joy!

Chocolate Dipped OREO Cookies
- Prep Time
- 10 minutes
- OREO cookies we used regular, winter, and peppermint
- Chocolate candy melts we used milk and white chocolate
- Sprinkles crushed candy canes, coconut, chopped nuts, or anything else you want to use to decorate!
Place parchment paper or wax paper on a flat work surface.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating. Heat until chocolate is smooth and there are no lumps.
Dip one cookie at a time into the chocolate, coating completely. Lift out cookie with a fork and shake gently side-to-side to remove excess chocolate. Lay cookie on parchment paper or wax paper. Decorate with sprinkles, candy canes, coconut, nuts, or whatever toppings you like. Repeat until all cookies have been dipped and decorated. If the chocolate starts to harden, place the bowl back in the microwave and heat for 10-15 seconds and stir again.
Let the cookies set until chocolate is hard. Remove from paper and place in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Note-you can also use almond bark or baking chocolate, melt according to package instructions.
