Chocolate Covered Oreos!

Welcome to my first blog post! If you like fashion and food as much as I do, you’ve come to the right place.

About a week and a half ago, I whipped up some treats as party favors for my best friend’s daughter’s first birthday. This was my first time making chocolate covered Oreos so I did not know what to expect/whether or not they were going to turn out how I wanted them to. I am super OCD with pretty much everything I do, and the fact that over 30 people were going to be seeing my “work” made my anxiety go in to overdrive.

Overall, these are a very easy treat to make and quite inexpensive as well. Initially I was going to draw icing flowers on each Oreo to go with the theme, but decided toasted coconut was more elegant. I was really happy with this decision as it went with the very chic decor that my bestie and I meticulously planned weeks beforehand.

So if you’re feeling like your Oreos need a boost or you’re looking to make a special treat for whatever occasion may come your way, here is how to make chocolate covered Oreos:

You Will Need:

  • Oreos (duh) – I made about 80 of them, which was just under 2 packs
  • Chocolate wafers – I used white chocolate and a dusty pink for drizzling, purchased in 3 pounds of bulk (again, this was for 80 Oreos so purchase less if making a smaller amount)
  • Coconut – Optional. You can top them with whatever you want, even crushed Oreos would look cute

Directions:

  1. Melt the chocolate wafers over a double broiler – its not as fancy as it sounds, literally just a pot of hot water with a glass bowl on top. Also, make sure you keep the temperature on low heat so your chocolate doesn’t get too hot.

2. Once the chocolate is melted, place the Oreos one at a time in the bowl and cover completely.

3. After you have completely submerged the Oreo in chocolate, scoop it out with a spoon and shake off the excess chocolate.

4. Place the Oreo on a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper and allow the chocolate to dry.

5. For the toppings, melt the coloured chocolate wafers over a double boiler and toast the coconut in a pan on low heat until golden in colour.

6. Once the chocolate has melted, drizzle on to the Oreos and immediately top with toasted coconut so that it sticks to the melted chocolate. I used a regular spoon to drizzle the chocolate and put a small amount each time to prevent clumping. As you can see, it wasn’t a fool-proof technique so if you’re super anal then I suggest Googling how to drizzle chocolate like a pro – LOL.

I was pretty impressed with how they turned out, especially since this was my first try. I like how imperfect and elegant they look and they tasted ah-mazinggg!

You can place these on a pretty plate or package them up if you’re using them as party favours like I did. I purchased a party favour kit for like, $3.00 at the dollar store and placed two in each one. I thought they looked super chic and everyone loved them! They even come with circle stickers which I drew a “V” for Violet on.
