Ingredients

  • 1 8.5 ounce package Oreo cookies
  • 2 cups white chocolate disks or chips melted

Instructions

Melt white chocolate

  • Set a sauce pan with about an inch of water on cook top.
    Bring water to a roiling boil then turn down to simmer.
    Put white chocolate in a medium to large, clean, dry glass bowl. 
    Place the glass bowl on the sauce pan. Be sure the bottom of the glass bowl won't dip down into the pan so far that it touches the water the pan.
    You don't want any water in the bowl with the white chocolate or touching the glass bowl. 
    Water, even a drop, will make the chocolate seize up. 
    Seizing up means the chocolate won't melt properly and you'll have to throw it out and start over.
    Using a rubber spatula or a wooden spatula, stir the white chocolate disks or chips, every two to three minutes, being sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl.
    Depending on how hot the water is and how warm or cool the white chocolate is when you began the process of melting it, this step should take ten to 15 minutes, approximately. 
    Meanwhile, put a few sheets of wax paper on your counter or kitchen table and open the package of Oreos.
    Don't go buying a double boiler unless you make candy on the regular. My ghetto version of a glass bowl over a sauce pot will work just fine for you.

Dip the Oreos

  • Once the chocolate is melted, turn off the stove top and using potholders, move the bowl of melted chocolate to your Oreo/wax paper work station. 
    Using a large fork, dip each cookie until covered in white chocolate, give a shake and set on wax paper. 
    If you're going to sprinkle or sugar the chocolate-covered Oreos do so immediately after dipping in the chocolate.
    Let cookies rest on wax paper until the chocolate has set.
    Depending on the temperature and humidity in your kitchen, it may take ten to 20  minutes for the chocolate to set. 
    If you're working in a hot climate, these may not set without refrigeration. If that's the case, store them in the fridge.
    If you're not in a hot, steamy kitchen, you can store these cookies in a cookie jar or a plastic bag for as much as two weeks-however they won't last that long.
    Look ma, the white chocolate is all melted but I did have to use my hands to give the white chocolate disks the occasional stir.
