Read on below to learn how to make some Chocolate-Dipped Jack-o-Lantern Cookies!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Oreos (whichever flavor you’d like!)
  • Orange and black chocolate candy melts
  • Microwave-safe bowls/candy melt pot or fondue pot
  • Baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Fork/spoon
  • Plastic sandwich bag to pipe with/scissors

Here How to Make Your Chocolate-Dipped Jack-o-Lantern Cookies:

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment. Place your cookies on the baking sheet for easy assembly. 

Next, melt the orange chocolate candy melts in a fondue pot to melt them completely. You can also melt them in a microwave-safe bowl at 15- to 30-second intervals until melted.

Using a fork, dip a cookie into the melted orange chocolate candy melts, fully submerging it.

Carefully lift the cookie out and gently shake the cookie; any excess chocolate with fall through the fork. Delicately place the chocolate-dipped cookie onto the parchment-lined baking sheet by gently sliding it off of the fork.

Once all the cookies are dipped, place the cookie sheet of chocolate-dipped cookies into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to set.

While the cookies are setting, melt the black chocolate candy melts. You can melt them in the fondue pot or in another mixing bowl in the microwave.

When the black chocolate candy melts have fully melted, take a spoon and scoop it into a plastic sandwich bag. With all of the melted black chocolate candy melts in the plastic sandwich bag, use a pair of scissors to cut a small corner off of the tip of the bag to create a piping bag.

Pipe two small triangles for eyes on the cookies along with a spooky squiggly mouth. You can, of course, get creative with the facial design!

Once all the cookies have their faces, allow them to set completely in the refrigerator. 

When the cookies have set, they are ready to enjoy!
