Tips to make your White Chocolate Covered Christmas Oreos extra delicious

Using almond bark, vanilla candy coating or melting wafers will yield a shiner presentation than  just using white chocolate chips. Almond bark is not made from almonds. Depending on where  you are in the world the vanilla candy coating is called different things.

While you can melt the candy coating in a microwavable bowl, melting it in a glass measuring  cup will hold the heat and consistency longer. 

If your coating doesn’t flow off your spoon, add ½ tsp of vegetable oil or melted coconut oil to  thin it out until it flows off the spoon.

Using a spoon, poke at the chocolate to see if it has started to melt at all, if not its okay. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each time. 

This should take 3-5 times. Be careful not to overheat it, it will burn. 

Once you can stir the chocolate you will probably need to add a little bit of vegetable oil. Once your chocolate is fluid (runs smoothly off the spoon) you’re ready to dip!!!!!

Prior to starting make sure all of your toppings are easily accessible. Grab your sprinkles,  shredded coconut, dye the coconut for a pop of color and get ready for loads of fun. 

Dip the oreos mid way into the chocolate. Pull straight up (if your chocolate is too thick you may  need to shake off excess, otherwise lay it on parchment paper and add toppings.

Dip your oreos midway into the chocolate. Let the oreos sit for 20-30 mins or until the candy  coating set. Display and enjoy.

Note: Avoid putting in the fridge or freezer to speed up the process. The moisture will cause the  colors from your sprinkles or dyed coconut to run once the cookies come back to room  temperature and are sitting out.
