Ingredients Needed for Dipped Halloween Oreos

These adorable Halloween Oreos actually only need a handful of ingredients to create. You can scroll to the end of this post for the full measurements and steps on the printable recipe card, too.

You’ll need:

  • Oreo cookies
  • Purple candy melts
  • Green candy melts
  • Orange candy melts
  • Halloween sprinkles (e.g., bats, pumpkins, ghosts, and other spooky shapes)
  • Candy eyes if you want to add in some Oreo monsters!

You’ll also need:

  • A baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • 3 small microwave safe bowls
  • A fork or dipping tool

For this recipe I used colorful candy melts. These come in the exact colors I wanted, and can be found at craft stores that have a baking section, many local grocery stores, Walmart or ordered online from Amazon. They’re also vanilla flavored, so they go nicely with most Oreo flavors.

You can also substitute white chocolate chips. Melt the chocolate chips and add food coloring to create the desired shades you want.

I usually pick up festive sprinkle mixes and candy eyes at Walmart or Target. There are also lots of options that can be found at Amazon as well if you prefer to order online.

How to Make Dipped Oreos for Halloween

These no bake Halloween desserts are going to be your new favorite! Dipped Halloween Oreos are always such a hit.

First, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Separate the Halloween sprinkles into small bowls for easy access and set aside.

In three separate microwave-safe bowls, place the purple, green and orange candy melts.

Choose the color you want to start with. Microwave the bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until the candy melts are fully melted and smooth.

Using a fork or dipping tool, dip each Oreo cookie into the melted candy until fully coated. Allow the excess candy to drip off before placing the cookie onto the prepared baking sheet.

While the candy coating is still wet, generously sprinkle the Halloween sprinkles over the top of the Oreo.

Get creative with your sprinkles to make each Oreo unique and fun. Create a Halloween Oreo monsters by placing candy eyes on top of the dipped Oreos when they candy is still wet.

Repeat until you’ve used up all of that color melted candy. Then, choose the next bowl of candy melts and do the next batch of Oreos for a colorful variety.

Allow the decorated Oreos to sit at room temperature until the candy coating has completely hardened. This can take about 30 minutes to an hour. If you’re in a hurry, you can also place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to speed up the process.

Once the candy coating has set, arrange the Halloween Oreos on a spooky Halloween plate or store them in an airtight container until ready to serve.

You can keep a sealed container of dipped Oreos for up to two weeks in the fridge.

Tips for Making the Best No Bake Chocolate Covered Halloween Oreos

For best results, I recommend only melting one color of candy melts at a time, and completely dipping and decorating one Oreo at a time. This ensures that the candy melts stay nice and melty, and that the coating is still wet enough for the sprinkles to adhere and stay.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating Halloween Dipped Oreos! You can choose literally any color combination or sprinkles you’d like. Only able to find black sprinkles in your local grocery store? Use orange candy melts for a super easy Halloween treat.

I love adding candy eyes to lots of recipes during Halloween, because they make my kids giggle. They swear that adding one candy eyeball to a green dipped cookie looks just like Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.!

While you can substitute white chocolate chips for the candy melts, I really encourage using the candy melts. First, they come in a huge variety of shades. Second, they don’t require any additional steps other than melting them. Using candy melts makes this recipe much faster and easier, and as a mom I can use all the extra time I can get.

One of the best parts of this recipe is that it’s really hard to mess up. Oreos end up looking messy or have bubbles in them? That’s totally ok, because they’re supposed to be for Halloween, and Halloween creatures are never perfect.
