Chocolate-Dipped Reese’s Oreos

Chocolate-Dipped Reese's Oreos

Do you ever spend money on something you could do perfectly well yourself, if not for a certain lack of time and/or abundance of laziness?

Like scrubbing the toilet. I don’t like to do that. Not because I think I’m above it (I clean up my kids’ vomit, so I’m not above anything), but because I do a horrible job. It’s just not my area of expertise. Likewise, I avoid setting off bug bombs. Exterminators are my friends.

When it comes to making delicacies that people charge a lot of money for, though, I’m all over it. If you buy a chocolate-dipped Oreo at a not-to-be-named chocolate shop that rhymes with “saliva,” you pay almost four bucks per Oreo. If you make them in your kitchen, it’s a tiny fraction of that price.

And I went one better than just a traditional dipped Oreo, too, opting to use Reese’s Oreos. What could be better? Nothing. Which is why I just ate five.

To make this work, you need to use melting chocolate. There’s a lot of good-quality melting chocolate out there. Ghirardelli is the brand I used for these, but feel free to use your favorite. Just don’t use actual chocolate unless you’re in the mood to play games with tempering. That’s less than fun.

At the end of a short dipping session, you’ll have glorious dipped Oreos for cheap! And you can eat them all yourself or give them as gifts. Or both. Either way, there are times when you just have to do something yourself, so ask this question: would you rather clean a toilet or dip an Oreo?

1/2 package Reese's Oreos

  1. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate according to package directions.
  3. Using a spoon, dip each Oreo into the chocolate, covering the entire Oreo.
  4. Lift the Oreo out of the chocolate with a fork, allowing the excess chocolate to drip through the tines.

I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

      I like to save money sometimes on something simple, Michele! They were delicious. Addictively so.

  2. Mira

    I totally agree with you, if I can make something like this at home, there is no need to be overcharged at the store that rhymes with “saliva”. These are perfect and I’m sure very delicious!

      Ha! Thanks, Mira. I just think it’s so crazy how much stores charge for things. $4 for a cupcake? Or a piece of chocolate? DIY!

    Dipping Oreos in chocolate? As if they were not addictive enough as it is. I love it!

      I like to make things more addictive, Dannii! Upping the ante is fun!

  4. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice

    I’m totally with you on spending money for things that are well worth it! And these oreos look like the best thing ever, Mir! I could seriously eat a few of these babies for breakfast! Such a fun and easy treat! And yes, this would be perfect to give away as holiday gifts, too! I see some white chocolate and red/green colored sprinkles in the near future with these oreos! 🙂

      I see we have the same taste in breakfast, friend! I’m definitely doing a pumpkin spice version next week. Holidays make for fun treats!

    Holy smokes those look amazing! And why on earth have I never heard of Reese’s Oreos?! I think I need to move to the States just for the food! 🙂 I will be there in a few weeks though, and now I know what to go look for at the store!

      You need to try them, Stacey! They are life-changing. Have fun on your trip!

    I just laughed out loud reading the chocolate shop that rhymes with “saliva” haha! My husband always buys the white chocolate covered oreos around Christmas time. But these look way better! Peanut butter and chocolate, what’s not to love!

      I was kind of proud of that rhyme, Danielle. But yeah, why waste all that money on something that’s so easy to do on your own?

      I must confess, I couldn’t sleep at night until they were all eaten. The kitchen kept calling, Rachel! 🙂

    Oh god I am just drooling over here.. I never thought oreos could taste any better but dipping them in chocolate is a killer idea Mir. I would recreate the recipe but I have no self control when it comes to chocolate or oreos and these would get devoured WAY too quickly…

      Somehow, having no self-control has never stopped me. But it should, Thalia!
