What kind of coating for white chocolate dipped oreos?
We used white chocolate melting wafers, but you can also use white chocolate chips, white candy melts, vanilla chips, vanilla candy melts, or almond bark.
What is the best way to melt the white chocolate?
We use the microwave as it is the quickest way but it’s important not to overcook it. Chocolate has a tendency to seize up if overcooked in the microwave and at that point, you’ll need to toss it and start over.
We recommend heating in 20 second increments, stirring each time to avoid seized up chocolate.
Can I use different oreos?
Yes! Chocolate and cream filled are the classic options, but these would be fantastic with any flavor oreo cookie. Definitely try different variations and let us know which ones are your faves.
Storage and leftovers
How long do white chocolate mummy oreos last?
These will keep up to two weeks when kept at room temperature in a cool dry place and in a sealed/air tight container.
Can you freeze mummy oreos?
Yes! To get a jump on holiday treats feel free to freeze these. Wait until after they’re set then add to a freezer safe air-tight container. For best results, separate layers with sheets of parchment paper.
Defrost in the refrigerator or at room temperature. I prefer to defrost in the refrigerator and then move to room temp to limit the amount of condensation that may collect as they thaw.
Tips and tricks
✅ Try making with other types of chocolate or add food coloring!

Frequently asked questions
Can I use regular chocolate instead of white chocolate for the mummy oreos?
While the recipe calls for white chocolate, you can certainly use regular chocolate if you prefer. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate can create a different and equally tasty mummy design.

Can I use homemade cookies instead of store-bought Oreos for this recipe?
Yes, you can use homemade cookies instead of store-bought Oreos. Simply ensure that the cookies are fully cooled before dipping them in the melted white chocolate.
Can I add other decorations or toppings to the mummy oreos?
Absolutely! While candy eyeballs are used in the recipe, you can get creative and add other Halloween-themed decorations like edible spiders, small fondant pumpkins, or colored sprinkles to enhance the spooky look.
Can I make these mummy oreos in advance for a Halloween party?
Yes, you can prepare these mummy oreos ahead of time for a Halloween party. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place to keep them fresh until the event.

How to Make Mummy Oreos
- 24 oreos
- 36 ounces white chocolate chips, wafers, or a chopped bar
- paramount crystals or coconut oil if desired
- candy eyes
- Melt the white chocolate. This can be done in a double boiler on the stove, in the microwave (10 - 15 second increments on high, stirring in between), or (my personal favorite) in a small crockpot. Stir in paramount crystals or oil to create a smoother mixture, if desired.
- Dip each Oreo in the now melted white chocolate, one at a time, submerging fully and then carefully removing with a fold and gently shake off the excess. Place on a lined baking sheet and add eyeballs.
- Finish by drizzling remaining white chocolate in criss-cross patterns over the oreos to make them look like mummies. (You can use a spoon, or a piping bag with a small tip).
- Allow to fully set before enjoying.
