These adorable bunny butt chocolate covered Oreos Easter treats recipe are perfect for putting in Easter baskets or setting out for an Easter snack.  They are easy to make without a special mold.  These are an easy no bake Easter chocolate treats to make, and older kids can help make them with some adult supervision.


My daughter loves to make things with melted chocolate like these chocolate dipped Oreos.  Since Easter is close, I asked her to help me make them for Easter treats ideas.


She's set up with a chocolate melting pot and several molds, but I wanted an easy Easter treats DIY for my readers.  I didn't want to use a special mold or special equipment, but you totally could if you want to.





I like these homemade Easter treats because they are easy to make and no bake.  You'll need some Oreos, chocolate, and about an hour to make them.


Your guests, however, will think that you spent hours in the kitchen making recipes for Easter treats.


I'll also have some variations so you can make different kinds of bunny butt chocolate covered Oreos Easter.  


If you need recipes for Easter treats, try this for special homemade treats.


Bunny Butt Chocolate Covered Oreos Easter


How Do You Make Chocolate Covered Oreos Without Mold?


You can buy a silicone mold like this one to make a chocolate covered Oreos recipe.  I've used it before, and it is the best mold for chocolate covered Oreos.  It does make pretty Chocolate dipped Oreos. 


However, you do not need a special mold for this Easter treats DIY.  I simply melted the chocolate and made chocolate dipped Oreos.  


I did use the Wilton dipping tools to make this chocolate covered Oreos recipe.  I think they make it easier to dip, but you can use a fork.





How Far in Advance Can I Make Chocolate Covered Oreos?


You can make chocolate dipped Oreos about 7-10 days in advance.  The chocolate seals the Oreo cookie, so they will last longer.  


After about 10 days, they can get soggy.  They should be fine to eat for two weeks after you make them.


Do Chocolate Covered Oreos Need to Be Refrigerated?


No, you do not need to refrigerate this chocolate covered Oreos recipe.  The moisture from the fridge can cause the chocolate to get spots or sweat from the moisture.


How Do You Store Chocolate Covered Oreos?


Store your Easter treats DIY Oreos on the counter in an airtight container.  They will last 7 to 10 days before they can start to get soggy.


How Much Does it Cost to Dip Oreos?


To make Chocolate covered Oreos Easter, you will need one package of Oreos and 1 pound of chocolate or 2.5 cups of white chocolate chips.  


Depending on your store's prices, this should be around $3 for the Oreo cookies and about $2.75 for a bag of chocolate chips.


However, keep in mind that you will just to use part of a second bag of chocolate chips.  So your total cost will be under $10 with some chips leftover.  


I used Candiquick Melt n Make with a tray to melt in.  It is about $4 for a pound of chocolate.


You will also need mini marshmallows and a tube of pink icing.  These are about $1 each, so your total cost will be closer to $12-13.


Or course, you can buy generic.  Both Aldi and Walmart have generic chocolate cookies that are really good.  Aldi has white chocolate melting wafers, but I can't remember the price.





How Do You Thin Chocolate for Dipping?


I recommend adding 2 teaspoons of either vegetable shortening or coconut oil to your chocolate if you are using white chocolate chips to make these Easter treats ideas.


Coconut oil or shortening will help thin the chocolate and then help it harden better.  It also gives it a nice gloss.


Do not add water to thin your chocolate to make chocolate dipped Oreos.  Water will make your chocolate seize and get clumpy.


Can You Use Chocolate Chips for Dipping?


Yes, you can.  For this recipe, you will use one pound of white chocolate or about 2.5 cups of white chocolate chips.  


How to Make Smooth Chocolate Covered Oreos


To ensure that your chocolate covered Oreos Easter are smooth, make sure the chocolate is completely melted.  It will start to set up while you are dipping, so reheat it as needed.


I really like the Wilton melting pot to make chocolate dipped treats like this Easter treats recipe.  Alternately, you can put the melted chocolate in a double boiler.

Chocolate Dipped Oreos on a Stick


You can easily turn this Easter treats recipe into chocolate dipped Oreos on a stick.  Simply place a lollipop stick inside the Oreo before dipping.  


Then wrap in a clear cellophane bag and tie with a string.


This treat packaging set has 100 sticks, 100 bags, and 100 twist ties.


Boxes for Chocolate Covered Oreos


After you spent so much time making your Easter chocolate treats, you'll want a cute presentation.  You can find several styles of bakery boxes on Etsy


You can also put your homemade Easter treats in a clear cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon.





Chocolate Covered Oreos Recipe Variations


These chocolate covered Oreos Easter are adorable little bunny butts, but you can still make some variations.


You can use pastel colored melting chocolate to make spring themed chocolate dipped Oreos.  You can decorate them or leave them plain.


Use edible markers to make your decorations on them instead of using icing.


Sprinkle colored sugar on top or Easter cookie decorations instead of using marshmallows.


Dip in one color and add a drizzle of another color of melted chocolate.
