They are fairly simple to make and only require a handful of ingredients:
- Melting wafers, chocolate chips or almond bark (I used almond bark)
To start out, melt your chocolate, following the directions on the package. (I find that almond bark and melting wafers are best straight out of the bag because even once the chocolate hardens again, it's still soft. If you want to use chocolate chips, add a teeny bit of shortening or vegetable oil as you melt them and that will help the chocolate not be as hard once it sets up.)
Dip the Oreos into the chocolate. I did it two ways: halfway and completely covered. If you want a completely chocolate covered Oreo, use a fork to flip the cookie around in the chocolate. When you lift it out, gently shake the fork and let any excess chocolate drip off.
Put your dipped cookies on a silicone baking mat (I use this brand) or wax paper. Sprinkle with sprinkles if desired. Let set for about 30 minutes. You can also pop them in the fridge or freezer for a fast set.
To package my cookies, I used sandwich bags tied with ribbon and the zipper part cut off.
*Tip: Turn your bag of cookies over, then slide the ribbon under the bag and tie it. Flip it over and double knot it. Curl the ribbon (if desired/needed) and cut the top off the zipper bag.
Simple, right? The whole thing took me less than an hour, including letting the chocolate set. Easy peasy.
