I hosted a luau themed bingo a few years ago and made these fun dipped Oreos. I thought they would be perfect for a hot pink & zebra themed party. 

How to make tutorial HERE

I used candy melts, Oreo cookies, and a silicone baking mold to create the dipped cookies.

I wanted to show extra details when making and decorating. 

Why are my Oreos uneven?
This happens when using molds but can easily be fixed. 

Take a warm pan and put pressure on the edges that are uneven. This works very quickly. Place Oreos on parchment paper after melting to prevent sticking.  

Why are my Candy Melts too thick?

If you've had trouble working with candy melts you might need to add a little coconut oil. This will make the consistency perfect for dipping or decorating. I add 1-2 tsp after Candy Melts are melted and mix well. 

Do I need decorating bags and tips?
I love my 12" decorating bags  and #2 Wilton tip to decorate but sometimes I'm in a rush and can't find them. 

Don't worry if you don't have decorating bags or tips. Ziplock bags work just fine. 

Fill the ziplock bag with melted Candy Melts and seal. 

Cut a very very small corner off with scissors. This cut will be similar to the decorating tip size. Start small and cut larger if needed. 

See! Looks the same!

I usually mixed a bunch of sprinkles together for decorating. 

Drizzled and add the sprinkles. Work fast before it dries.
