Ingredients

  • Dark chocolate or chocolate icing – To create faces, you can either use black chocolate icing, dark chocolate, or a writing icing tube.

Pro Tips and Tricks to make the Skeleton Oreo

  1. Storage – These skeleton Oreos stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks when stored in an air-tight container.

  2. Oil - I used vegetable oil for diluting white chocolate. If you are using chocolate wafers then there is no need to use oil.

  3. Cookie Pop - You can easily make this skeleton oreo into a cookie pop by inserting a lollipop stick into the center of the cookie before coating it in white chocolate.

  4. Chocolate coating - I have coated cookies in white chocolate and drew faces with dark/black chocolate. You can also use black chocolate as a base and white chocolate for creating a face.

  5. Colorful Oreos - You can also add orange/red gel food coloring to the white chocolate to get bright colors.

  6. Face drawing - There are several ways to create skeleton faces. You can either use black icing, black gel edible pen, dark chocolate, or black chocolate.

  7. Use chilled oreo - To coat with white chocolate, it is better to use chilled cookies. This way you will not have to wait before creating faces. If you are using cookies at room temperature, then let the white chocolate coating set in the refrigerator before making faces. This chilling time generally takes 10-15 minutes. 

FAQ

Can I make them in advance?

Skeleton Oreo is a great make-ahead treat and can be made up to 1 week ahead of time and can be stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve! To keep them longer than 2 weeks, freeze them and let them thaw in the refrigerator before serving.

How to make Peppermint Skeleton Oreo?

The Peppermint version of Skeleton Oreo is pretty and amazing. To prepare peppermint-flavored skeleton oreo, you just need to add peppermint extract to the melted white chocolate before dipping them in oreo.
