Chocolate-Covered Oreo® Snowman Cookies
An easy to make holiday treat that everyone loves.
- Serves: 45 persons
- 2(12 ounce) packages Sweets, candies, confectioner's coating, white
- 1(14 ounce) package chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)
- black pearlized sugar sprinkles
- orange Tic Tac® candies, cut in half
- 1(12 ounce) package pink candy melts
- candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (such as M&Ms®) as needed
Step 1Empty 1 bag white candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and continue to microwave in 15- to 30-second intervals until candy is almost completely melted. Let sit for about 1 minute and stir until smooth. Set the second bag of white candy melts aside.
Step 2Dunk a cookie in the white melted candy. Use a fork to turn it over to ensure it's completely coated on all sides. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place 2 sprinkles in the middle for eyes. Place 1 half of a Tic Tac® under the eyes for a nose. Place 4 more sprinkles in a semi circle on the bottom for the mouth. Repeat for remaining cookies, melting the second bag of white candy melt as needed.
Step 3Place the baking sheet in a cool, dry area for about 25 minutes so candy coating can harden. Do not place in the freezer or the snowmen will sweat.
Step 4Melt the red candy melts as in step 2.
Step 5Cut any excess chocolate off around each cookie. Dip the top part of each cookie in the red melted candy to make a hat and add an M&M® for a design. Place on a new parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to harden, about 25 minutes. Cut off any excess chocolate before serving.
