If you’re looking for some fun, not-so-spooky Halloween treats that are scary cute, you’ll love to serve these simple-to-make chocolate-covered OREO treats!   Make them for parties, the best trick-or-treat snacks or give cute little care packages to friends and family to celebrate the fall season.

Are you an OREO fan?  Oreos are always in our pantry.  We get antsy when we start getting low. There’s just so many things to do with OREOs besides just dunking them! 🙂

All you need is some chocolate or candy melts for melting and some simple accessories for making them festive and fun.  You can make your own Halloween ideas up with what you have on hand and be creative, and with what I had on hand, this is what I came up with.  Mummies, jack-o-lanterns and 3-eyed monsters!  

Mummy Oreo Ingredients: White chocolate candy melts or chips, 2 mini m&m’s for each mummy cookie.

3-Eyed Monster Oreo Ingredients: Chocolate candy melts or chips, 3 edible eyes & sprinkles for each monster cookie.

Jack-O-Lantern Oreo Ingredients: Orange candy melts or white chocolate chips using orange food coloring gel, mini chocolate chips  for each pumpkin faced cookie, and green m&m for stem..

How to make Oreo Treats!

    1. Place parchment paper or wax paper on baking sheet.
    2. 1 cup of chocolate chips or melts will coat approximately 10 cookies, as a reference for how much chocolate you will need.  
    3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips or candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating. Heat until chocolate is smooth and there are no lumps.
    4. Dip one cookie at a time into the melted chocolate, coating completely. Lift out cookie with a fork and shake gently side-to-side to remove excess chocolate. Lay cookie on parchment paper or wax paper.

Mummies

    1. Add 2 m&m eyes, any color works like red, green, yellow and blue.  Decorate bandages placing melted chocolate in piping bag or snip an end of a ziplock bag and zig-zag chocolate back and forth on cookie. 
    2. Then repeat until all cookies have been dipped and decorated.

3-Eyed Monsters

    1. Add 3 edible eyes or use m&ms, any color works like red, green, yellow and blue.  Sprinkle color of choice on monsters.
    2. Then repeat until all cookies have been dipped and decorated.

Jack-O-Lanterns

    1. Add mini chocolate chips or piped frosting to make pumpkin face.  Mini chocolate chips work well for the face!  Add green frosting or green m&m on top for the stem. 
    2. Then repeat until all cookies have been dipped and decorated.

If using almond bark or something similar, use instructions on package.  For smoother chocolate, use 1 teaspoon canola or coconut oil if desired.  Don’t recommend using oil with white chocolate though. 

Tips:  If the chocolate starts to harden, place the bowl back in the microwave and heat for 10-15 seconds and stir again.
