Preparation Phase: Essential Equipment and Ingredients

Ensure you've got all the necessary tools: a microwave or double boiler for melting chocolate, and of course, your favorite Oreos. When choosing chocolate, go for top-notch quality—whether dark, milk, or white—opt for something you'd enjoy munching on! We used Ghiradelli white chocolate chips and enhanced the white tone with our Choc Elite White Coloring (click here)!

Recipe Guide: Step-by-Step Process

Melting and Preparing the Chocolate Coating

To start, the chocolate must be smooth and luscious. Whether you're melting it in the microwave or over a double boiler, maintaining a temperature between 89-96 degrees Fahrenheit is key for tempered chocolate!

Whether using a circular mold or traditional dipping methods, ensure an even and cozy chocolate layer. Be vigilant about the chocolate's temperature, as it's crucial for the desired outcome.

Decorating Your Chocolate Covered Oreos

Here's where the fun really begins. Let your creative side shine by drizzling more chocolate, adding sprinkles, or cute fondant pieces for a personalized touch.
