16 chocolate-covered Oreos(R)


  • 4 ounces green confectioners' coating (such as green Wilton Candy Melts®)

  • 16 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)

  • 1 tablespoon green and white nonpareils sprinkles


  1. Place green confectioners' coating in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir constantly, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Dip cookies, one at a time, 2/3 of the way into the melted candy, then place on wax paper.

  3. Sprinkle the nonpareils on top of the wet candy before the candy coating dries. You might need to work in batches so you can add the sprinkles before the first cookies have dried. Allow the candy coating to dry and harden before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can expedite the hardening process by placing the wax paper and cookies into the refrigerator for a few minutes.
