Chocolate Covered Oreos

I hope everyone had an enjoy Christmas or special holiday season that they celebrate with their friends and family! This holiday season was amazing for our family and we are grateful for every minute that we got to spend enjoying time with our families and our friends.

Part of the holiday traditions in our household includes making lots of goodies to give away to those who are close in our lives and our co-workers. Every year we include a few new goodies into the mix, but a staple every year in my Chocolate Covered Oreos! These are always one the favorite goodies I make and I only make them throughout the holiday season!

Using double stuffed Oreos, these cookies are melt in your mouth delicious and after you learn how to make them they are so simple, yet homemade, they make the perfect homemade gift to make!

Ingredients:
1 Package of Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies (about 30 cookies)
2 1/2 (12 ounce) Packages of Milk Chocolate Chips

Directions:
Cover a large cookie sheet with a piece of wax paper.

In a large or medium sized microwave safe mixing bowl, pour in all of the chocolate chips and microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir the chocolate well and then microwave on high for an additional 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir again. If needed, microwave an additional 15-20 seconds on high until the chocolate is all melted and stirs easily.

Drop 3-4 cookies into the chocolate at a time.

Using mini-tongs, turn the cookies until they are completely coated in the chocolate.

Gently shake off the excess chocolate and lay the cookie on the baking sheet. Repeat until all the cookies are covered.

If the chocolate becomes too cool to work with, just microwave it again on high heat for an additional 15-30 seconds, stirring before you dip additional cookies.

Allow the cookies to set in a cool place over night or in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. (Cooling in the refrigerator will give the cookies a matte finish verse cooling overnight which will give the cookies more of a glossy finish.)

Store in an air tight container or zip lock bag in the refrigerator.
