Chocolate Covered Oreos, Three Ways

Posted on December 7, 2015  |  Print Recipe

Chocolate covered Oreos are the best homemade Christmas gift! The three different recipes for this easy no-bake treat are so much fun.

Chocolate covered Oreos make the most delicious gift!

Chocolate covered Oreos aren’t exactly a new thing. I’ve been making them for years and have seen them sold in many candy stores. Usually, though, they are plain milk or dark chocolate. After spotting a variety of flavors at Trader Joe’s (and yes, I know, they aren’t technically “Oreos”), and using lots of self-restraint not to buy the big tin, I decided to make my own. That way, I was able to pick my favorite flavor combinations and control what chocolate I use! Bonus, they make a great treat for gift giving and bringing to holiday parties.

For this post I made three variations of Chocolate Covered Oreos:

  • Milk chocolate with dark chocolate drizzle
  • Peppermint dark chocolate (perfect for Christmas!)
  • Milk chocolate peanut butter (peanut butter IN the chocolate AND topping!)

I finally know what everyon's getting for Christmas this year!

Even though I love baking holiday cookies, it’s nice to change it up once and a while with something that looks extra pretty and fancy (people are always impressed with chocolate dipped  anything). Plus, I can’t bring myself to give someone store-bought food gifts. Sidenote: I actually love when people buy me food gifts. Is that weird?

OMG PEANUT BUTTER chocolate covered Oreos!!!
