Cuteness overload!! Ladybug Oreo cookies will impress everyone around. And guess what? Merckens candy coatings make Valentine's day candy projects easier than ever! Just dip, decorate, and enjoy!
Give your chocolate covered Oreo cookies an upgrade this Valentine’s day!
Ladybug Oreo cookies are a step up from your normal dipped Oreos. These little love bugs are sure to impress, making cute Valentine’s day gifts or a fun project for your kids.
Note: 1 pound of pink candy coatings should be enough to dip approximately 2 dozen Oreo cookies. Buying one package each of icing eyes, multi-colored heart sprinkles, and merckens milk candy coatings will be more than enough to decorate 2 dozen ladybug cookies.
First, line a sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper. Melt the pink merckens candy coatings, and dip oreo cookies. Place them on the parchment paper to dry, topping each cookie as you dip, with a merckens milk chocolate candy coating for the head.
When you’re done dipping, pop them in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to harden them completely.
Adhere the icing eyes by using corn syrup as an edible “glue” or melted chocolate. Use a toothpick to brush corn syrup on the backs of the eyes and heart sprinkles and adhere them to your cookies. We picked out all the white hearts, but you can use any color!
