Easy St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Covered Oreos
Some of my favorite desserts contain mint and chocolate so this mint Oreos recipe is a no brainer win for me. It seems like almost everyone loves Oreos and their mint version just screams St. Patrick’s Day party.
This recipe is so easy, which makes it a great option for including the kids in the kitchen. (Have them make Toddler Pizza for lunch and then these St. Patrick’s Day Cookies are the perfect dessert!). While you may want to melt the chocolate yourself if your kiddos are super young, you can remove the chocolate from the stove once done and then allow kids to help dunk and sprinkle.
This yummy treat requires just 3 simple ingredients, making it affordable and easy to whip up.
- Mint Green Oreo Cookies: The mint green Oreos featuring a green frosting truly are perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day, but you could definitely use any type of Oreo for this treat if you wanted to switch it up or don’t care for mint.
- White Almond Bark: I love the simplicity and flavor of almond bark but you can also use candy melts or white melting wafers if you are unable to locate almond bark. ***see note below
- Green Sanding Sugar or Pareil Sprinkles: The crowning glory of this treat are the sprinkles! Feel free to use green sanding sugar or any other types of green sprinkles you may have on hand or find at your local grocery store.
NOTE: I do not suggest using white chocolate chips as they will become soft and hard to handle at room temp. White almond bark is my top choice as it melts into a smooth consistency and hardens once dry.
How to Make St. Patrick’s Day Oreos
You’ll find these candy coated Oreos are one of the easiest treats you’ll ever make! While you need a stove top or hot plate to melt the chocolate, there’s no oven needed for this no-bake treat.
- Melt your white almond bark: In a double boiler, melt your almond bark according to package instructions.
- Drizzle or dunk your Oreos: You can either take a spoon and drizzle white almond bark over half the cookie or dunk your Oreo in half way. Shake off any extra chocolate.
- Sprinkle: While still holding the half coated Oreo, lightly sprinkle green sanding sugar or green pareil sprinkles of choice.
- Dry: Gently place your dipped and decorated mint Oreos on parchment paper to dry.
NOTE: You may find that dipping your Oreos leaves crumbs in the white almond bark. To avoid that, just drizzle the chocolate onto your cookie instead. Also, be sure to sprinkle immediately after dunking or drizzling as the sprinkles won’t stick once the chocolate begins to harden.
