Valentine’s Day is next week! Are you ready? I made these chocolate covered OREOs with candy hearts for my boys. OREOs are my favorite cookie and dipped in chocolate with a candy heart just makes them so much better!
If you haven’t had a chocolate covered OREO then you haven’t lived! They are soo good. I dip a lot of things in chocolate (just type chocolate in the search box in the sidebar) and OREOs are my favorite. Seriously! Yum!
As you can see I went crazy drizzling with the candy melts. No straight lines. Not today! Sometimes imperfection looks a lot cooler and is more fun to eat.
Even my hearts aren’t perfect. It gives them character and I like them. Throw uniformity out the window. Get crazy!
How to make Candy Melt Hearts
Melt candy melts according to directions. Fill a piping bag with candy and cut tip. Draw hearts onto wax paper. Be sure not to make them to thin. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until candy has set. Simply peel off hearts from the wax paper.
Chocolate Covered Candy Heart OREOs
1 package of Double Stuffed OREO Cookies
16 oz. milk chocolate
6 oz Red Candy Melts
Line a large tray with wax paper.
Using the double boiler method melt the chocolate. Stirring constantly.
Once chocolate is melted drop one OREO in at a time and coat with chocolate.
Lift cookie out with a fork and with a spoon scrape off any excess chocolate.
Set cookies on prepared tray.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until chocolate has set.
Heat up Candy Melts as directed on the package. Because I was using only half the bag I did the microwave method.
Line a small tray with wax paper.
Pour candy into a piping bag and cut off the tip.
On the wax paper draw hearts with the candy.
Set in the refrigerator for 5 minutes or until the candy has set.
Drizzle remaining candy over the OREO cookies.
On the top center of the cookie squeeze a short line of candy. This will be the “glue” to hold your candy heart in place.
Peel candy heart off the wax paper.
Place candy heart on the candy line and balance.
Once candy has set they are ready to eat!
Notes: During this process I did have to reheat my candy. I simply put my piping bag on a microwave safe plate and heated on the defrost setting for 15 seconds. Massaged the bag with my fingers and the candy was reheated evenly.
