These are fun to serve up at Halloween parties but I personally love them for nibbling pre-trick or treating (or in my case, while handing out Halloween treats). I make these as well as my Halloween Pizzas and it is such a fun and festive way to celebrate Halloween!

  • They require no baking at all!

  • You only need 5 ingredients.

  • This is a fun way to get the kiddos involved in the kitchen.

  • These adorable, yet spooky designs are perfect for Halloween parties.

  • You can easily switch up the colours and make all or only 1 of the designs I made.

  • They’re delicious!

Ingredients in Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos

  • Oreo cookies: About 1 package of regular or double stuffed Oreos. (Double stuffed Oreos work best for the bats)

  • Candy melts: To replicate my designs, I used 1/2 cup each of black, white, purple, and green melts. In all, 2 cups of candy melts are needed to coat 1 package of Oreos.

  • Coconut oil: stirred into the melted candy melts. This makes it smoother and produces a nicer, smoother coating on the cookies.

  • Halloween sprinkles & Candy eyeballs

  • Optional: granulated sugar (or coarse sugar). I used this to sprinkle on the bodies of the bats but this is entirely optional. Not sure how I felt about it in the end. What do you think?

Ingredient quantities and full instructions are in the recipe card below.

How to make Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos

More detailed instructions are in the recipe card at the end of this post, but essentially this recipe comes down to 3 easy steps.

  1. Melt the candy melts with a little coconut oil.

  2. Dip the cookies one at a time.

  3. Decorate the cookies as desired. [See below for step by step photos and instructions.]

  4. Let them set and enjoy!

How to make the Monster cookies:

  1. Simply dip the Oreo cookies in the green or purple candy melts.
  2. Arrange the eyeballs on each cookie and then sprinkle with the Halloween sprinkles.

To make the Mummy cookies:

  1. Dip each cookie in the white candy melts.
  2. Arrange the eyeballs on each cookie.
  3. Transfer the remaining melted candy melts to a piping bag and cut a very small portion of the tip.
  4. Make stripe designs to make it look like mummy wrapping (be careful not to pipe over the eyes).

To make the Bat cookies:

Note: Make sure you are using double stuff Oreos or else it will be difficult to stick the wings in place.

  1. Using a few extra Oreos from the package, scrape off the filling inside the cookies. Then with each cookie portion, carefully snap it in half to make a set of wings. Use as many Oreo cookies as you need for the number of bats you are making. (I only used 20 cookies to allow for extra cookies to be used for the wings of the bats)
  2. Dip the Oreo cookies in black candy melts. To each cookie, carefully insert the broken Oreo “wings” into the stuffing. [They double stuffed Oreos will hold them in place better.]
  3. Lay the dipped Oreos onto a parchment lined baking sheet and arrange the candy eyeballs on each bat.
  4. If desired, sprinkle the bat bodies with granulated or coarse sugar.

The “bat wings” should be inserted into a dipped Oreo cookie. I took a picture of an undipped cookie to better show how it should be done as it was hard to tell once it was coated.

Storing chocolate covered Oreos

To store these cookies, once they have set completely, transfer them to an airtight container and store at room temperature. If you are layering the cookies, I recommend placing layers of parchment between the layers to avoid any sticking.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Have fun and Happy Halloween!
