When you were a kid, twisting the two halves of an Oreo apart, scraping the filling off with your teeth before dunking the chocolate wafers into a glass of cold milk until they began to get soggy was just about the best way you could imagine eating these famous cookies. Now that you are now older and your snacking style has evolved, it doesn’t mean you can no longer indulge in a few Oreo cookies when you want. The next time you get the craving, why not take it up a notch with this recipe for white chocolate dipped Oreos. These little beauties are not delicious, but simple to make! They are perfect for serving guests, giving as a gift, or just enjoying by yourself!

It All Starts with Melting the White Chocolate

Some may say that white chocolate isn’t chocolate because it doesn’t contain any chocolate solids. While these killjoys may be technically correct, it doesn’t mean it won’t melt in a similar way to ordinary chocolate. However, you do have to be just a little more careful when heating white chocolate to do so slowly; otherwise, it may seize up and become grainy.

A popular way of melting chocolate is to use a double boiler, but going this route requires either investing in a proper double boiler or assembling your own from various pots and bowls in your kitchen. A much quicker and easier alternative is to use the microwave.

The enemy of perfectly smooth white chocolate is heating too quickly or too much, so patience is indeed a virtue. Start with a pound of white chocolate chips or a bar of melting white chocolate broken into small, even chunks in a thoroughly dry, microwave-safe bowl. Set the microwave on 50 percent power and heat for 3- seconds. Take the bowl out and give the white chocolate a good stir. Wait a few seconds to ensure the heat is evenly distributed and then put the bowl back into the microwave for another 30-second blast at 50 percent power. Continue the process until the white chocolate melts completely.

Use a fork or a dipping tool to give the Oreos a good dunk in the warm white chocolate before placing them on a wax paper-lined baking tray. You may need to rewarm the white chocolate depending on how fast you are at dipping.

So Many Options

Dipping Oreos in white chocolate is just the beginning. Think of white fudge Oreos as a blank canvas that you are free to embellish. Let your creativity run wild here. Once the white chocolate Oreos are on the baking tray, you can add whatever you like. Crushed nuts are wonderfully sophisticated, while rainbow sprinkles are perfect for something a bit more festive. You may even want to drizzle on melted dark chocolate.

Tips for Making and Storing White Chocolate Covered Oreos

  • Lumpy white chocolate is not the end of the world. If you are a little overzealous when it comes to heating the white chocolate, and it becomes gritty, you can smooth things out by briskly stirring in a tablespoon of warm canola oil.
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter. Once completely set, place in a container with a lid and keep for up to two weeks at room temperature.
