Ingredients for white chocolate dipped Oreo ornaments

 

It only takes a few ingredients to make these chocolate dipped Oreos.  Here’s what you’re going to need.

What you need:

  • Oreos-this can be just about any kind of Oreo.  I used peanut butter Oreos for mine this time.
  • Mini M & M’s
  • White Chocolate Wafers.  Wilton has a line of candy melt wafers that work great.  I also bought mine in the bulk section at WINCO. 
  • You will also need White Reese’s Mini Cups.  They work perfectly for the top of the ornament.
  • A contrasting color of candy wafer for the string the lights will be set on.  I used a dark chocolate for mine.
  • A piping bag for the dark chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate for the string to put the lights on

 

How to melt white chocolate

 

How to Melt White Chocolate in the Microwave:

You’ll need

  • Microwave safe bowl
  • Heat sage rubber spatula

Microwave your white chocolate wafers on high for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir.  (Be sure you stir the chocolate.  The candy melts will retain their shape until stirred so don’t rely on the looks fo the chocolate.) Repeat melting for the candy wafers for 30 seconds and stirring for until the white chocolate is almost melted. When there small chunks of the wafer remaining. Don’t microwave again. Just keep stirring the chocolate until all the small pieces have melted too.  The heat from the melted chocolate and from the bowl will melt the rest of the white chocolate. 

Cut the MIni Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Use a sharp paring knife to cut approximately 1/4 of the Peanut Butter Cup.  This will allow the Peanut Butter Cup to lay flat on the baking sheet and helps it stay close to the cookie as the melted chocolate wafer is cooling and setting. (see the pic above)

How to Dip Oreos:

I like to melt the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl.  It works best to do small batches of melted chocolate.  That way, if the chocolate gets contaminated with a little water or too many cookie crumbs, you don’t waste a bunch of chocolate. 

Lay out some parchment paper on your working surface so you’ll have a place to lay your Oreos after they are dipped.  

Before you start dipping the Oreos, blow or dust off any cookie crumbs you can.  This will help your chocolate stay white and keep as many of the Oreo crumbs out as possible. Also, It’s a good idea to make sure your 2 cookies that make up the oreo are lined up and it’s not offset.  This will keep your Oreos tidy.

Using a fork, drop your Oreo into the melted white chocolate wafer.  Push the oreo down and then flip the Oreo to cover it completely in the white chocolate. Slipe the fork under the oreo and shift back and forth a little shaking white chocolate off the oreo as you lift it up.  Keep shaking the Oreo and let any excess chocolate drip off the cookie. Scrape the fork, with the Oreo on top, on the side of the bowl, to remove any more excess white chocolate. Lay the cookie on the parchment paper to set up.  This should take about 20 minutes.  You can also put the cute Christmas cookies in the fridge or a cool place to speed up the process.

Once the white chocolate has set, melt the dark chocolate. You will be using this for the string to put the lights on. I absolutely love the disposable piping bags sold by Wilton. I use them constantly when baking and cooking! Melt the dark chocolate and then scoop it into the piping bag.  I used a small round tip in my piping bag but you can probably use it just fine without the tip too. It helps if the melted dark chocolate isn’t super hot when piping it on the Oreos.  Let it cool so it’s easy to work with but doesn’t constantly drip out of the piping bag.  

It helps to let the chocolate string cool just a little before putting the mini M & M’s on.  You want it to be the consistency of frosting, soft enough hold the candy but hard enough the candy doesn’t fall over.  

Wa-lah, there you have it, some cute Christmas cookies.  These chocolate dipped Oreos are going to be a hit at your next party!
