You will love how easy this Chocolate Dipped Oreos recipe is for St. Patrick’s Day.
You can use dark or milk chocolate if your child dislikes white chocolate.
Every year March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day which falls on a Thursday in 2022.
Today, I wanted to talk about baking with your children and keeping them involved in the kitchen.
I will also tell you how to make White Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies for St. Patrick’s Day.
White Chocolate Dipped Oreos Or Milk Chocolate
I enjoy dipping Oreo cookies in milk, especially when I dip them in Nutella.
That’s how I devised the idea for St. Patrick’s Day White Chocolate dipped Oreos with sprinkles.
You might think dipping Oreo Cookies in chocolate is overkill, but they are worth every bite.
If you’re splurging or want a sweet treat, you might as well make it a good treat. Am I right?
Growing Up Baking With Mom In The ’70s and ’80s
Mrs. CBB wants to know how many of you remember the “Just Like Mom” television show.
It was a program where kids baked cookies with the ingredients provided.
The idea was to see if their mom could pick out which cookie their child baked.
Ingredients such as olives and other savoury items were allowed in the cookies.
Below is an old video on YouTube.

Kids With Autism Learning To Bake In The Kitchen
If you’re new to Canadian Budget Binder, in 2021, our son was diagnosed with Autism.
You’d never know it as he’s a bright boy with lots of smiles and always wanting to help around the house.
I’ll write a blog post about his and our journey, but I’ll keep it in the kitchen for this post.
We had no idea what Autism was, nor did we know that every autistic child is different.
From a young age, he was interested in baking, so Mrs. CBB and I would create easy recipes.
Around two years old, he started helping with stirring batters or pouring chocolate chips for muffins.
His absolute favourite muffin worldwide is a Tim Horton’s Chocolate Chip Muffin.
I tested so many recipe creations on him, and finally, he ate an entire chocolate chip muffin.
I have a few recipes we’ve done together as a family, which I plan to share on the blog.
The recipes I created for our son are straightforward and aim to get children into the kitchen.
Bringing White Chocolate Dipped Oreos To School
We wanted to create an easy recipe for St. Patrick’s Day since he has little patience like most kids.
After about 20 minutes, he’s off and away from doing something else, so we agreed on dipping Oreo Cookies into white chocolate with green sprinkles.
We hope to make a batch for him to bring to school on a candy stick, but it depends on Covid restrictions.
It was not unusual for our son to bring homemade treats for his class in SK and JK on special days or occasions.
Once Covid-19 hit, all of that ended with online schooling, as no kids were around to eat them.
Walking into class with a box of treats makes everyone smile, especially when chocolate is involved.
Our son chose double-stuffed chocolate Oreos and white Oreo cookies for the White Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies.
They are peanut-free and have two options for the kids; Chocolate and Vanilla Oreos were a great idea.
There are many varieties of Oreo Cookies, including Gluten-Free, so feel free to pick any flavours you want.
Green Sprinkles For St. Patricks Day
We bought Cake Mate green sprinkles from Amazon, but you can also find them at the Dollar store.
Each bottle is more than a dollar and sectioned with different shapes, including sprinkles and four-leaf clovers.
Our son is not a huge fan of candy but loves the colours and will pick them off.
We were at Tim Hortons, sitting inside while travelling, and he wanted one vanilla-sprinkled donut.
As it sat on his plate, he had zero interest in eating the donut and admired the colours he licked.
He’s always been a picky eater because of his sensory processing disorder diagnosis.
You’ll always find cookies or a muffin in his lunch as a treat but no candy; he despises it.
He wanted to make these St. Patrick’s cookies for his classroom friends and teacher.
Ultimately, we had extra white chocolate and made a few White Chocolate Dipped Oreos for kids who don’t care for sprinkles.
White Chocolate Oreo Dip Recipe
The best chocolate for white chocolate-dipped Oreos would be thick Belgium white chocolate.
Although Belgium chocolate is costly, some alternatives will work better if you’re on a budget.
If you go to the Bulk Barn, plan for St. Patrick’s Day, and when they offer their coupons in the flyer or online, use them.
The vital part of creating the white chocolate for dipping has a double boiler or stainless bowl that fits over a pot.
You must ensure that you have the correct temperature of the chocolate for dipping.
In a double boiler, melt 2/3 of the chocolate, stirring often, until the thermometer registers around 115°F, but absolutely no higher than 120°F.
If tempering milk or white chocolate, heat to 110°F.Handle The Heat – How To Temper Chocolate
I found the best way to dip or to make covered Oreos in chocolate is to dip half the cookie with tongs or chocolate-covered Oreos with a spoon.
