Valentine Chocolate Dipped Oreos

Post image for Valentine Chocolate Dipped Oreos

by Amber on January 29, 2013

So here’s the thing. Oreos? They’re kind of an issue for me. I love them. Big puffy heart love them. They come in really fun flavors, like Candy Cane and Berry Burst Ice Cream. I mean, come on – they’ve been Milk’s favorite cookie for longer than I’ve been alive.

We try not to bring them into the house that often. For one, I can’t be trusted around a packet. If it’s open, every time I swing past it in the kitchen, another cookie disappears.



For another, they sadly contain high fructose corn syrup, which I really try to avoid. I only mention this because I’m hoping that some day, Oreo will see this post ( or one of the many around the interwebs) and maybe decide to leave it out.

That being said, there are other organic “Oreo”-esque cookies out there that work for these little bites of love, or you can make your own.

When I found this candy mold at Target, I had to have it. I’m sure you can find it in the holiday display of your local Target, or most craft stores, but you could also do something similar yourself with a silicone muffin pan, and a deft hand at drawing chocolate hearts after the initial chocolate layer has hardened.

Thanks, Maggie! And thanks for stopping by.

I love this idea! So yummy looking!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 11:48 AM

They’re pretty awesome to share with your favorite valentine. Thanks for stopping by, Katrina!

Oh wow! I don’t eat oreos very often, but at Christmas time they have the white fudge dipped oreos that I am crazy about. How did I never think of dipping my own oreos? You are GENIUS Amber!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 11:56 AM

Allison, full disclosure: I love those dipped Oreos at Christmas too, and I never once thought to do my own until I found the candy mold.

I have such a soft spot for Oreos – whenever my dad used to go to the US for work, he’d always bring me home a packet of Oreos before they were available here and I used to totally devour them.

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:08 PM

I remember when I first moved over to the UK, and we could only find them in packets of 5.. I would hoard them whenever we did find them!

I’m powerless when it comes to Oreo cookies. I don’t do much HFCS either, but I totally make an exception for the Oreo. That said, I’d love it if they just used real sugar!

These are so pretty!

Reasons I know that, despite beans, we are sisters from another mister.

leslie January 29, 2013 at 4:09 PM

Adorable! I cant buy Oreos either, they all wind up in my mouth. When I do decide for them . I buy the brand “who Knew” they are better for you and taste the same.

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:11 PM

Leslie, I’ve always been skeptical of those! I’ll have to try them the next time I get to the store. Thanks for the rec!

Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen January 29, 2013 at 5:02 PM

Add me to the powerless-to-overcome-the-call-of-Oreo club :)

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:21 PM

Glad to know it’s not just me!

Casey@Good. Food. Stories. January 29, 2013 at 6:35 PM

They turned out so well! I would love to try making a homemade version of the Berry Burst filling with the Golden Oreo cookie, since Oreo so rudely doesn’t offer this option for me. Custom Oreos… can we dream?

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:21 PM

We can, and do. I think you should do it.

DessertForTwo January 29, 2013 at 9:32 PM

I could eat a dozen of these by myself! No Valentine date needed! :)

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:29 PM

Hahah. How about me as a Valentine date? We can sit on the couch in stretchy pants and eat chocolate dipped oreos together.

Aimee @ Simple Bites January 29, 2013 at 10:35 PM

Amber these are so adorable!! Really creative.

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:29 PM

Thank you, Aimee :)

I saw those molds at Target but passed them by. Great, now I need to go back.

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:51 PM

They’ll be on clearance now, and totally appropriate for *anytime* you want to tell someone you love them. Just sayin’

Tracy January 30, 2013 at 11:03 AM

These are so incredibly cute! The perfect treat for Valentine’s Day. Love!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:51 PM

Thank you, dear Tracy!

Glory/ Glorious Treats January 30, 2013 at 9:29 PM

So cute! And yes, oreos around here “disappear” far too quickly! I’ve found the Trader Joe’s brand (Jo Jos) are really good and a close match.

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:53 PM

You’re absolutely right, Glory, the Jojos are great! I just wasn’t setting foot near a Trader Joe’s on the weekend :)

Erin @ Texanerin Baking January 31, 2013 at 2:40 PM

Over here, Oreos come in boxes with 5 Oreos to each package. So it’s like you’re forced to eat 5. And that fifth one is so good that you have to open another package. And then whoops… 10 gone. Then you just feel sick. And oh my. Berry burst ice cream Oreos? I swear, they’re coming up with crazy stuff. I mean, it sounds great, but how many varieties are there now?! Maybe I’m just jealous I can’t try any of them. :)

Anyway, these are super cute and I love the little hearts on top!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 12:59 PM

Erin, you need to come for a visit and check them all out! I remember the 5 packs from our UK days. Totally had those HOW DID I EAT 10 OREOS moments too.

Erin @ Texanerin Baking February 13, 2013 at 3:05 PM

I am! I just booked a ton of flights for a NYC / NJ / Austin / Dallas / SC trip in June. YAY! I will eat lots of Oreos. :) And I’m happy I’m not alone with the whoops-I-ate-half-the-box moments!

Stephchows February 3, 2013 at 8:25 PM

Omg just getting around to seeing this post and it looks amazing! Def a perfect special treat!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 1:19 PM

Aww, thanks for your sweet words, Steph!

Elizabeth February 10, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Pink and chocolate are the best things ever!

Amber February 13, 2013 at 1:26 PM

Totally agree!
