What type of chocolate is best for dipping?

You can use milk, dark or white chocolate.

It’s best if you can use melting wafers, which are made by Ghirardelli or Guittard. These are made with high quality chocolate, taste the best and have the smoothest texture when melted. You can also melt smaller quantities which is perfect when you want to add a drizzle.

White chocolate tends to be thicker when melted. When dipping Oreos in white chocolate, you’ll notice crumbs from the Oreos tend to accumulate in the chocolate. So, if you are planning to use some white chocolate for a drizzle or to create different colors, you may want to set some aside before you start dipping.

Wilton does make Candy melts, but they’re not the same. Taste wise, they’re not as good, and while they’re can be for making candy, they tend to be a thicker consistency which makes it harder to dip and get a smooth texture.

The easiest way to melt chocolate

It’s so easy to melt chocolate in the microwave. While you can use a double boiler, I find this method is the quickest and easiest.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate wafers at 50% power in 30 second intervals; stir between each interval and continue until the chocolate is melted. Reduce microwave time as needed so the chocolate does not burn. Stir until it’s completely smooth.

HOW TO USE A candy Melting Pot

I love my melting pot, it’s perfect for keeping the melted chocolate and just the right temperature without burning it. Melting wafers will harden after sitting at room temperature for certain period of time, but the melting pot actually prevents that from happening.

First add the melting wafer and turn it on the high setting until the chocolate has melted, stirring occasionally. Then change the setting to warm, so that the chocolate stays a consistent temperature.

How to make chocolate covered Oreos

Melt the chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate wafers at 50% power in 30 second intervals; stir between each interval and continue until the chocolate is melted. Reduce microwave time as needed so the chocolate does not burn.

Dip the Oreo: Place the Oreo in the bowl of chocolate and use a fork to flip the Oreo around until it’s completely covered. Use the fork to lift the Oreo out of the chocolate, tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate and scrape the bottom of the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove additional chocolate. Place on a piece of parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

Decorate: Chocolate wafers tend to set quickly, so if you’d like to add sprinkles or other toppings, then it’s best to do so right away. Or you can add a chocolate drizzle and then add sprinkles to the drizzle.

To add a Chocolate Drizzle: Wait until the chocolate has fully set, then apply the drizzle with leftover melted chocolate. Do this by filling a small piping bag or Ziploc bag with 2-3 tablespoons of melted chocolate and cut off the tip/corner of the bag. Drizzle and allow to set. I recommend drizzling it off the sides of the Oreo for the best look.

How to color white chocolate

If you’d like to use accent colors for decorating, you can easily color some white chocolate using gel colors like Americolor or Wilton.

To add a colored drizzle, you only need a small amount of chocolate, 2-3 tablespoons will be more than enough to cover a dozen Oreos and then some.

Use just a drop of color at a time, mix the color and if you want it to be a little darker, add another drop of color. Use immediately.
