How To Make Chocolate Covered Oreos
To create these delectable chocolate-covered Oreos, you'll need to chop your chocolate. Keep a few tablespoons aside and melt the rest in the microwave.
Place some of the melted chocolate in a muffin tin, top it with an oreo, and then cover it with chocolate. Place the frozen muffin tin in the freezer until the chocolate is set.
While the Oreos are in the freezer, melt the remaining chocolate and spoon it into a piping bag. Cut a small hole in the piping bag before filling it with chocolate and piping it over the frozen Oreos.
Decorate to your own taste with sugar decorations, and allow the Oreos to cool in the fridge for a while before serving!
What to Serve/Pair with Your Chocolate Covered Oreos
You don't need a specific occasion to enjoy chocolate-covered Oreos! They're perfect for when you just want something sweet and satisfying. They can simply be enjoyed with a cold glass of milk, like a traditional Oreo, or a steaming cup of coffee.
If you want to go beyond ordinary milk and coffee with chocolate-covered Oreos, they're also great with ice cream. The smooth ice cream balances out the richness of the chocolate and adds depth to both. Fresh strawberries or other fruit may also be served with chocolate-covered Oreos to offer a light, refreshing contrast.
