Do Halloween Oreos Taste The Same?

I don’t know about you guys but every time I see the Halloween or Christmas Oreos in store I get all the warm, cozy, excited feels. Even though these limited edition Oreos look different, the taste is still the same. Unless you have an extremely sensitive palate to food dye, which honestly would be impressive because they truly just tase like the original oreos. That of course just means that you can use the original oreos to create these Halloween Oreo Pops if you wish šŸ™‚

Candy Melts V.S Chocolate

Both candy melts and chocolate work for dipping oreos, cake pops, or any dipped dessert for that matter but they each have their own pros and cons. I’ve gone ahead and compared the two below but it all boils down to your preference. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy a happy balance of both šŸ™‚

  • Candy Melts – Candy melts are typically all made from sugar, oil, and other additives. They are specifically made to melt and make whatever you’re dipping easiest. They come in a variety of colors which is an advantage over chocolate. They’ll set nice and smooth on whatever you’ve dipped and are able to remain more stable in warm conditions versus chocolate. Both candy melts and chocolates can burn if not heated correctly. It’s important to always microwaves in 30 second intervals and to mix between each time until nice and smooth. Candy melts can be thinned out with coconut oil or vegetable oil. If needed, add about 1 teaspoon of either oil to the candy melts to help thin out the mixture.
  • Chocolate – Chocolate is often a fan favorite because of its richer, more complex flavor. Chocolate can also be smoothed, and thinned out with coconut or vegetable oil. This can help the dipping process set smooth, not thick and uneven. The downfall to chocolate is the lack of customization in colors. While candy melts come in almost any color you can imagine, chocolate is well, chocolate. You can dye white chocolate chips but you must use an oil based food dye or powdered food coloring to prevent the separation of white chocolate. This is a bit more tedious than just using candy melts but if you prefer the white chocoalte flavor over candy melts than this is a great option.

Instructions For Storing Halloween Oreo Pops

Storing these candy melt and chocolate coated oreos is super easy. Be sure to allow the coating to set on each oreo so that it peels perfectly off of the parchment paper covered baking sheet. They set faster in the fridge. Once the oreos have set, place them in a ziplock bag tightly sealed or an airtight container. You can store them in the fridge, sealed for up to two weeks. They can store in the freezer, sealed for up to 2 months.

These treats are best served and enjoyed right away to keep that crunchy texture of the oreo alive. If stored correctly, the oreos will still hold their texture for the most part.

Popsicle Sticks V.S Cake Pop Sticks

I find that using popsicle sticks is easier than cake pop sticks. Popsicle sticks are flatter and when inserted or placed in the center of each oreo, there is a less likely chance of the cookie cracking. If you do decide to use cake pop sticks, just make sure that you are using ones that are small enough to fit in between the cream.

To make this step easier, you can also use double stuffed oreos to give yourself more room to place the stick into.

Microwaving Chocolate & Candy Melts

It is extremely important to microwave chocolate and candy melts correctly. Always be sure to microwave in 30 second intervals. Stir the contents between each interval just until the mixture is completely smooth, velvety, and fully melted. And of course I hope this goes without saying but always be sure to use a microwave safe bowl šŸ™‚

If at any point throughout the decorating process a certain color of candy melt or chocolate cools down too much and thickens, simply pop it back in the microwave for about 15 seconds remembering to stir to make sure that everything at the bottom and sides of the bowl are getting the same amount of heat distribution.

Ingredients

  • 36 Halloween Oreos

  • 1/2 cup orange candy melts

  • 1/2 cup white candy melts, or white chocolate

  • 1/2 cup green candy melts

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate

  • 27 small candy eyes

  • 9 small heart sprinkles

Directions

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Insert a popsicle stick in the center of each oreo. To prevent the cookies from cracking, try pulling the cookie apart, then gently placing the stick on the frosting side of the cookie then topping it with the other half of the cookie. Be very gentle and take your time with this step to prevent the cookies from breaking.
  • Repeat the step of placing a stick in each cookie until they are all finished. Then place the oreos in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes to firm up.
  • Beginning with the Frankenstein pops, melt your green candy melts in 30 second intervals mixing between each time until they are completely melted and smooth.
  • Carefully dip one oreo at a time in the green candy melts, let the excess drip off back into the bowl, then scrape the bottom side of the oreo to remove even more excess candy melts. This will prevent the candy melts from flowing along the sides of the oreo so much so we keep that perfectly round shape. Place the dipped oreo on the prepared cookie sheet fit with parchment paper.
  • Repeat this step with 9 oreos.
  • Dip 9 more oreos on orange candy melts for the pumpkins, 9 more in chocolate for the cats, and 9 more in white candy melts or white chocolate for the mummies. Allow each color to set on the cookie sheet in the fridge for 15 minutes before moving onto decorating. Be sure to let the excess chocolate or candy melts drip back into the bowl for each.
  • While the oreos set in the fridge, we will need small triangles for the cats ears and small rectagles for the pumpkin stems and sides of Frankensteins head later on. On a small pan fit with parchment paper, pipe small triangles and rectangles with the chocolate. I made extra in case any of them break in the transferring process. Allow these to sit in the freezer until we use them later on.
  • Getting back to the Frankensteins, transfer some of our melted chocolate from earlier to a piping bag. Gently place two small dollops of chocolate in the center of the cookie then press on two eyes on top so they stick perfectly. Slowly pipe on a mouth with stitches and a head of hair in a zig zag pattern. Get creative and feel free to make each one different and unique.
  • For the cats, repeat the same steps that we took for placing on the eyes for the Frankensteins. Next, below and right in between the eyes place a small dollop of chocolate and place a small heart sprinkle in the center. If you don’t have small heart sprinkles, use the white chocolate or candy melts to make a small heart shape for the nose.
  • Next, pipe small lines for the mouth under the nose and whiskers on each side. Laslty, pipe two small dollops of chocolate on top of the cats head and gently place two triangle ears on top. The chocolate will melt fast if you try to apply the ears with your hands. Try dipping a toothpick in a small amount of chocolate then placing onto the cat to help make the transfer easer.
  • Pipe on triangles and various nose and mouth shapes with the chocolate to make them all different and fun! Allow these to set.
  • For the mummies, place the white chocolate or white candy melts depending on which you used into a piping bag. Dollop two small circles to plcae the eyes on the cookie just like we did for the cats and the Frankensteins.
  • Drizzle the white chocolate over each mummy using a fast back and forth motion.
  • Allow each decorated oreo to set in the fridge for 15-20 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
