Easter Oreos dipped and decorated! These cookies are so easy to prepare and require two ingredients, plus decorations. Great for a family gathering!
Easter is such a wonderful holiday. Isn’t the candy just the best? I combined cookies with candy when I made Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies. My grandma introduced me to Lemon Lush and it quickly turned into an Easter Sunday favorite! And you can’t go wrong with Peeps S’mores on a Friday night in.
Dipping Oreos has kind of become my jam. I was making these and my seven year old said, “You’re dipping Oreos AGAIN?” Sure am, son! I need to dip them for all the things! Especially a holiday like Easter where there are so may fun and bright colors.
There are silicone molds you can use to make your dipped cookies, but they aren’t required. I drop mine into a bowl of smooth candy melts, cover, and lift out with a fork!
WHAT DO YOU USE TO DIP OREOS?
You can use colored candy melts or you can use white chocolate chips and use food coloring to color them. The easiest option is to buy candy melts in different colors.
HOW DO YOU MAKE ST. PATRICK’S DAY DIPPED OREOS?
Simply melt the candy melts one color at a time and dip the Oreos. You want to decorate each individual Oreo after it has been dipped or the coating will cool too much.
WHAT ARE CANDY MELTS?
Candy melts are vanilla-flavored discs for candy making and coating. They come in multiple colors for all kinds of fun treats! You can buy them at Walmart, craft and party stores, and other grocery stores.
HOW LONG DO DIPPED OREOS LAST?
You can keep a sealed container of dipped Oreos for up to two weeks. Keep them at room temperature.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CANDY MELT OREOS?
Heat the candy melts one color at a time so they don’t all get too cool. Dip the Oreos in your chosen color then continue on to melt and dip with the next color. (See my post for Halloween Dipped Oreos for photo instructions!)
There are two ways to dip these cookies: with candy melts or white chocolate. Candy melts do not take food coloring so if you need to color your coating, use white chocolate or almond bark and add food coloring. The easiest option is to buy individual colors of candy melts, which is what I did.
After you melt one of the colors of candy melts or chocolate, drop an Oreo in and cover it completely. Use a fork to lift out and give it a little shake to remove the excess drips coming off the bottom. (You can use that silicone mold I mentioned if you’re looking for a sleeker aesthetic!)
Place the covered Oreos on a sheet of wax paper and immediately add the decorations you’re using. If you wait to top them with your decorations the coating can cool and the decorations won’t stick. I love using a variety of sprinkles and candy pearls!
Aren’t those a ton of fun? I gave some to my family then packaged the rest up to bring on a girls weekend getaway in Mt. Pleasant, UT. Friends from high school in a cabin watching Friends while eating dipped Oreos. It was just as amazing as it sounds!

Create different shades of colors with other colors of candy melts! The pink, purple, and green were darker than I liked so I added some of the bright white to each of those before melting together. Start with a few bright white, heat together, and add a few more if you want the color to be lighter!
