You can dip the whole cookie or just half of the cookie.

- Crush the candies by placing them in a plastic bag and rolling them with a rolling pin.
- You can also melt the white chocolate or almond bark by placing it in a bowl over a pot of boiling water.
- If the white chocolate becomes too thick you can add a touch of coconut oil to thin it out.
- You can substitute white chocolate chips for any type of melted chocolate to dip the cookies in like dark chocolate, milk chocolate or chocolate almond bark. You can also sprinkle it with any kind of crushed candy.
- Add a few drops of peppermint extract or cinnamon to the melted chocolate for more flavor.
- Sprinkle the covered cookies with decorative and colorful sprinkles, other cake toppings, or finely chopped nuts.
- Add espresso powder to the melted chocolate for a coffee-flavored dipped cookie. Yum!

Can I use a different kind of cookie to cover in white chocolate?
Yes, you can absolutely dip any cookie you want to make white chocolate-dipped oreos but I think classic oreo cookies are simply one of the best options.
What can I substitute for the white chocolate?
If you can’t find white chocolate bars you can use a block of vanilla almond bark or white chocolate chips. Or if white chocolate isn’t your thing at all you can dip the cookies in semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate. You can use bars of chocolate or melted chocolate chips. The crushed peppermint candies will work well with whichever chocolate you decide to use.
Why is it called almond bark?
Almond bark is an imitation of white chocolate. Apparently, the name comes from its original use which was to cover almonds.
Which flavor of Oreo cookie is best for this recipe?
Any Oreo flavor will work for making white chocolate-dipped oreos. However, make sure to choose one that isn’t already dipped in chocolate.
How long do chocolate-covered Oreos last?
These white chocolate-covered Oreos are good for 3-4 weeks and stored in an airtight container.
Should these chocolate-covered Oreos be refrigerated?
You can store these chocolate-dipped oreos on the kitchen counter but if your house is hot and humid you should place them in the fridge.
