Instructions

Melting Candy Melts

  • I like to melt 1 cup of candy melts with 1 tbs coconut oil or shortening at a time. Heat for 30 seconds at 50% power, stir, repeat until melted. If the candy melts are still too thick add more coconut oil 1 teaspoon at a time until you get your desired consistency.

How to make the Oreo Monsters:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt purple candy melts.

How to make the Oreo Mummies:

  • Melt white candy melts.

  • Dip Oreos into melted candy melts and carefully lay on parchment paper.
  • Before the candy melts harden gently press on eyes.
  • Let the white candy melts set up and then using a spoon drizzle lines over the Oreo to create mummy wrappings. I like to add a few lines, let those set up, then add more lines, giving the appearance of multiple layers of bandages. You can also pipe on the candy melts if you have a baggie with the corner cut off.

How to make the Oreo Bats:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt black candy melts.

  • Dip Oreos into melted candy melts and carefully lay on parchment paper.
  • Before the candy melts harden gently press on eyes.
  • Once the candy melts have set up, gently cut a thin Oreo in half creating the wings. Carefully separate the dipped Oreo and place the wings inside. Fix the wings in place with a little of the melted candy melts on the back of the wings. Add a little more of the candy melt between the bottom and top piece of the Oreo (the pieces you separated to put the wings on), and press back together.

Notes

Tips and Tricks
  • One 12 oz bag of candy melts will cover almost entire container of Oreos. The exact amount will vary depending on how much coconut oil you used to thin the candy melts.
  • Instead of the food gel you could pipe on black frosting. You can make black frosting my adding black food gel to my dark chocolate frosting recipe. 
  • Nutrition info is an estimate and doesn't account for the candy melts and decorating items.
