Valentine’s Day Chocolate Covered Oreos are a simple and easy no-bake Valentine’s Day treat. Just a few ingredients and you have a last-minute dessert to dress up your dessert table, take to your child’s school for a party, or a treat for after dinner.
Valentine’s Day Chocolate Covered Oreos
White chocolate covered Oreos are always a hit. Add on some pink sprinkles that give it that romantic feel and these Oreos will win over anyone! They are also affordable to make, which is also a win! The beauty of this Valentine’s Day treat is you don’t even have to turn on the oven. If you have kids, let them help add the sprinkles onto the dipped cookies. This recipe takes about 15 minutes to make, and you just need a few ingredients.
Can I Use A Gluten-Free Sandwich Cookie
If you are gluten-free, go right ahead and reach for a gluten-free sandwich cookie to use for this recipe. Any sandwich-style of cookie will work. We just went for a classic Oreo as that is what my family enjoys. You can even reach for a Golden cookie, double stuffed, etc.
What Is Almond Bark
For this recipe, we’re using almond bark. Almond bark is made with vegetable fat and sugar, and other ingredients. It is a dippable white or milk chocolate flavor that is great for dipping treats. Because of the vegetable fat, the almond bark hardens up pretty quickly. So you have a quick grab and go dessert that doesn’t get your hands all dirty to grab. If you cannot find almond bark, feel free to use chocolate melting wafers.
Can I Use Chocolate Chips In Replace of Almond Bark
Go right ahead and reach for the milk, semi-sweet, or even white chocolate chip to replace the almond bark. I do recommend adding a teaspoon to a tablespoon of shortening in with the chips as you melt them down. This will help to harden your cookies rather fast.
Or if you want to do a mix, part white chocolate and the other part milk or even semi-sweet dipped cookie.
How to make Valentine’s Day Chocolate Covered Oreos
Servings: 40 cookies
- 1 package Oreo Cookies (about 40 cookies)
- 1 package (1 lb, 8 ounces) White Chocolate Almond Bark (vanilla or chocolate)
- Sprinkles, optional
- Gel Food Coloring if you want to dye the chocolate. I used 3 drops of neon pink.
- Heat the chocolate almond bark according to the package directions. Most melting wafers require you to melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally.
- Dip the Oreos one at a time into the melted chocolate. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl.
- Place the dipped Oreos on a sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper. Make sure to add any sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.
- Allow the Oreos to set fully before transferring them to an airtight container. Store in the fridge or at room temperature for up to two days.
Storage of Valentine’s Day Chocolate Covered Oreos
Once your cookies are fully hardened you can transfer them to an airtight container. You can store these cookies on the counter at room temperature or in the fridge.
If you store your cookies in the refrigerator, just know they will be a bit harder to chew up. You can also freeze any cookies you don’t plan to eat right away. Freeze for up to three months. Thaw on the counter or in the fridge overnight.
Tips and Variations To Recipe
- With a fork or dipping tool make sure to shake off the excess chocolate on the cookies so they don’t clump.
- Use different sprinkles, chocolate shavings, coconut flakes, etc to decorate your cookies.
- Feel free to use a different type of chocolate to replace white almond bark.
- These cookies can be made a few days in advance of when you plan to need them.
