If you’re a fan of chocolate, strawberries, and Oreos then you’ll love these chocolate Oreo covered strawberries. They are also a super flexible recipe. Whether you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate, they’ll still turn out great.
What ingredients are needed for this recipe?
To make these chocolate Oreo covered strawberries, you will need:
- Strawberries: You’ll want to wash and them and let them dry. I prefer to leave the stems on mine so that they’re easier to dip
- Chocolate pudding mix: You’ll want instant pudding. This gives them that extra flavor that commercially made strawberries have.
- Chocolate: You can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate (just pick your favorite)! Melting chocolate works best.
- Oreos: Use one container of mini Oreos or about 10 regular sized Oreos.
- Wax paper: To set the strawberries on.
- Non-stick spray: To help prevent the strawberries from sticking.
A note about chocolate
I’ve found that melting chocolate wafers works best for this recipe. The higher quality chocolate that you use, the better the strawberries will turn out.
Using a double boiler is always best for melting chocolate. Many packages of melting wafers will claim you can melt in the microwave but the chocolate can get scorched or melt unevenly.
If you don’t have a double boiler, you can use a larger pot and a smaller pot. Fill a larger pot about half way with water and then spray the smaller pot with non-stick spray. Add the chocolate and let it melt over medium heat while stirring frequently.
How long are these strawberries good for?
These strawberries are good for about two days in your refrigerator. After that they start to get soggy.
Tips for making this recipe
- If you are making these strawberries for Valentine’s Day or a birthday (or even just because) and your strawberries aren’t perfectly ripe, try sprinkling a little powdered sugar over them (about a teaspoon or two) to sweeten them up.
- Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. You can melt your chocolate in the microwave faster but it often comes out lumpy or scorched. See my note about chocolate above for tips on how to melt chocolate in a double boiler.
- Keep the tops on your strawberries. You can dip the strawberries easier by holding onto the green leaves.
- Make sure you use instant pudding mix for this recipe. Do not prepare the mix.
- These chocolate covered strawberries with Oreos are best the day of but can last for up to two days in your fridge.
