For Dipping
  • 5 10-12 ounce bags of different colored candy melts (I used Wilton): white, green, brown, orange, and blue
  • 1 package of Mint Oreos
For Decorating
  • Candy eyeballs
  • Gummy worms
  • Red pull ‘n’ peel licorice
  • M&Ms
  • Pumpkin candies
  • Chocolate chips
  • Candy corn
  • Silver sanding sugar
  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  2. In a small microwavable bowl, pour a half bag (about 1 cup) of one-color candy melts. Follow the heating instructions on back of package (half a bag makes about 8-10 Oreos).
  3. You may need to use more than a ½ bag of green and white melts since they are each used for multiple cookie styles.
  4. Make sure melted candy is smooth. If candy is too thick or is not melting, add one teaspoon of vegetable shortening and stir until you get your desired consistency. Coating should still be thick enough to stay on Oreo.
  5. Take a Mint Oreo from the package and place one side into the coating.
  6. With a fork, flip the Oreo onto the opposite side.
  7. Using a spoon, scoop the coating onto the Oreo until it is completely covered.
  8. With a fork, lift the Oreo out of the bowl and gently shake to let any excess coating drip off while also waiting for the coating on top to become smooth.
  9. Place the Oreo onto the wax paper and add any decorations while the coating is still warm.
  10. Continue dipping and decorating your cookies until you’ve reached the desired number of cookies with that color. I use one color at a time so that the candy melts don’t harden.
  11. Repeat with other desired colors of candy melts.
  12. For quickest results, put the tray of Oreos in a refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until the coating has hardened.
  13. Serve chilled or at room temperature with milk, if desired.
  14. Store in the fridge or at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
