Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos
Last Valentine’s Day I had the pleasure of reviewing some chocolate dipped Oreos from Shari’s Berries. These were some of my favorite sweet treats from our Valentine’s Day themed assortment. I loved them so much, but the price kind of detoured me because I found them to be a bit high for my budget. The frugal nature within me decided that making my own Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos could not be very difficult, and it would save me tons of money!
Since my husband, and youngest daughter are gluten free, I actually made my Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos for our friends. Of course I sampled one to reminiscence the sweet taste, and boy were they good! The awesome thing about making chocolate dipped cookies is that you do not have to worry about water ruining the dipping chocolate’s consistency. With chocolate dipped fruit, you have to be so careful of excess moisture!
There is also soo much fun you can have with toppings. I used red crystals, Valentine’s Day Celebration Pearls, pastel hearts, and more! One package of semi sweet chocolate morsels covered 15 Oreos. You can heat the chocolate in the microwave, or in a double boiler. If you do use the microwave method, you will want to reduce the power by 50%, and stir the chocolate every 40 seconds until melted.
- 1 package of Oreos
- 1 package of semi sweet chocolate morsels, or candy making chocolate
- Valentine’s Day toppings (jimmies, sprinkles etc.)
- Wax paper, double boiler,fork, spoon, glass bowl
Using a double boiler, melt your chocolate. I prefer using a double boiler instead of a microwave because it melts the chocolate without potentially ruining the consistency, it also allows for a nice “dip” for cookies, fruit, & more. Be sure to frequently stir your morsels, and chocolate.
Using a spoon or tongs, dip your Oreos into your melted chocolate. Roll the cookie around until it is fully covered. Place it on your wax paper; repeat the process.
Sprinkle your Oreos with Valentine’s Day themed toppings ~enjoy~
I made these Shari’s Berries Inspired Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Oreos for over 75% off the retail price! They may not be as beautiful as the real deal, but in the end, they taste the same! Get a fancy red, white, or pink box at your local dollar store, and this becomes a frugal, heartfelt Valentine’s Day gift!
