Halloween Mummies Oreo Bites

Using store-bought cookies like Oreo’s make this recipe really quick to do. In fact, the longest part is probably waiting for them to cool and harden.

The kids love to make these but along the way we’ve discovered a couple of top tips that have made them so much easier to make.

Tips for Making Decorated Oreo Cookies

We have included affiliate links to some of the products and resources as an associate we may earn from qualifying purchases.

The first tip is that when you use the candy melts they have a perfect time which it states on the packet for melting.

If you melt them too much they actually get thicker!

You can thin out the candy melts – all you need to do is add 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening (white flora or Trex in the UK) to the mix. Other fats won’t work!

The other tip we have is that if you try and harden the cookies in the fridge they will go soft the same as storing them there. Instead, place in an airtight container in a cool dark place like a kitchen cupboard.
