SPREAD SOME CHRISTMAS CHEER
Who doesn’t love the classic Dr. Suess story of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”? We used to read the Grinch every year to kick off the season, then one year, I made these cookies to snack on while we read it.

- Peppermint Bark – This simple bark recipe is perfect for holiday cookie exchanges and a great sharable dessert for hosting a crowd.

Oreos: I prefer to use Golden Double Stuf Oreos, but you could use any Oreo flavor you prefer.

Toppings: Top these dipped Oreos with a Grinch heart sprinkle- the bigger, the better!
HOW TO MAKE GRINCH CHOCOLATE COVERED OREOS
STEP ONE: Start by melting 24 ounces of almond bark or white chocolate with 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in 30-second increments and stir until it is completely melted and smooth. Next, put 3-4 drops of green food coloring into the melted chocolate at a time and stir it in until you achieve the desired shade of green.
STEP TWO: Coat the Oreos in the melted chocolate and let any excess drip off before placing them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow these Grinch Chocolate Covered Oreos to cool completely.
STEP THREE: To finish, drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the coated Oreos and put a heart sprinkle on each cookie. Let them cool completely between serving or storing.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
- Sometimes I find it easier to make half the recipe at a time so that the melted chocolate doesn’t harden before I’m finishing up the process.
- Make sure to press the heart sprinkles into the chocolate drizzle before it dries to ensure it sticks.
- For reference, I used 8 drops of green food coloring to get the perfect shade of Grinch green.
HOW LONG DO CHOCOLATE COVERED OREOS LAST?
You can keep these Grinch Chocolate Covered Oreos in a sealed container at room temperature for about a week. They make great little holiday gifts for friends and co-workers! If you want them to last a little longer, you can store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three weeks.

- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- Add the white chocolate/almond bark and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in 30-second intervals until melted, stir between each heating.
- Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, add 3-4 drops of green food coloring to the bowl. Stir until combined and no more color streaks appear. Add more food coloring until you get the shade of green desired. (I used 8 drops.)
- Using a fork, dip the Oreos into the melted chocolate. Flip the cookie with a fork and then lift it from the chocolate, letting the excess drip off into the bowl. Place the dipped Oreos onto the lined baking sheets so the chocolate can set up. (see notes)
- Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the Oreos. Then put a heart sprinkle on each cookie. Let cool completely until the chocolate is set.
- I like to make half of the recipe at a time so that the almond bark doesn’t get too hard and sticky during the process.
- When it comes time to drizzle the extra almond bark over the cookies, only work on 3-4 cookies at a time, and then put the heart sprinkle on top. This way the almond bark doesn’t dry too quickly and the heart will stick and stay.
- Drizzling extra chocolate on top is optional. You can add the hearts to the cookies as soon as they’re dipped if you want to skip the drizzle.
