Looking for a fun, easy, Hanukkah-themed dessert that’s a step up from your average gelt packet? You’ve found your match. These chocolate-covered Oreos are a perfect holiday recipe to make with kids and don’t require too many ingredients or make a big mess. Plus, you can decorate the Oreos in any way you’d like, with your choice of sprinkle colors and shapes and even Oreo flavors!

Chocolate-covered Oreos



1 lb. candy melts—your choice of color


Cookie/Oreo chocolate molds



Place the Oreos into the chocolate mold. Melt chocolate. Pour chocolate into each mold, enough to cover the Oreo completely. Allow chocolate to harden in a cool area. 

Melt some additional candy melts to decorate. Once the chocolate-covered Oreos are dry, place on parchment paper. Dip a fork or the back of a spoon into the additional melted chocolate and drizzle over Oreos in a side-to-side motion. Place sprinkles onto wet chocolate drizzles.
