(st. patrick's day) chocolate dipped mint oreos

  • Makes 30
  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • 1 package mint Oreos
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons Crisco shortening
  • green sugar sprinkles


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place white chocolate in a medium microwavable bowl and melt in the microwave for 45 seconds, and then in 15 second intervals, stirring in between. Repeat until melted and smooth. Add in the Crisco and mix to combine. Transfer to a regular-sized coffee cup.

Dunk an Oreo inside the cup, so that half of the cookie gets coated with the melted chocolate; with a finger, gently swipe off any excess that's hanging at the bottom. Lightly sprinkle the green sugar sprinkles (as much or as little as you like) over the chocolate. Lay each Oreo on the cookie sheet to set.

They dry pretty fast, but you could place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to speed things up.
