How cute are these Chocolate Covered Oreo Apples with Candy Worms? These make the perfect sweet treat for back to school, Halloween parties or birthdays.
We recommend using a mold instead of dipping the Oreos in the melted chocolate to get that perfect apple look. You can also try experimenting with different Oreo flavors. Enjoy!
- 12 Oreos
- 2 Tablespoons solid shortening
- ¾ cup Wilton red chocolate melts
- 3 mini chocolate tootsie roll candies
- 1 large green Airhead candy
- 12 gummy worms
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the shortening for 45 seconds or until melted.
Add the red chocolate melts and stir until melted. (Depending on microwave wattage, you may have to microwave in additional 10 second intervals until completely smooth and melted).
Pour 1 Tablespoon of the melted red chocolate into each mold.
Lay an Oreo cookie in each mold, on top of the melted chocolate.
Spoon additional melted chocolate on top of each Oreo, filling the mold to the top. Set aside any leftover melted chocolate for use later in the recipe.
Chill for at least 2 hours.
While the Oreos are chilling, Cut each tootsie roll in half and then slice each half again to get 4 pieces per roll (12 total). Set aside. These will be the apple stems.
With a knife or scissors, cut the Airhead in half, lengthwise.
Cut 6 triangles from both strips (12 total) and set aside. These will be the apple leaves.
Cut the ends off of each gummy worm and set aside.
HOW TO ASSEMBLE APPLE OREOS
Pop Oreos out of their mold and lay on baking sheet.
Re-microwave the remaining melted chocolate that has hardened.
Dip each piece of "apple stem" into the melted chocolate and press gently onto the top of each Oreo cookie. Place back on the baking sheet to harden.
Take each Airhead triangle and bend it into the shape of a leaf. Dip into the melted chocolate and press gently on top of each Oreo next to the stem. Placed back on the baking sheet to harden.
Dip the ends of each gummy worm into the melted chocolate and press onto the face of each Apple Oreo. Place back on the baking sheet for at least 30 minutes to harden.
