Oreos are delicious – but lucky (green) ones are even tastier.
Kids love crafts that they get to eat, and this craft is easy enough for even toddlers and preschoolers. The younger your children are, the messier this craft might get! But that’s the fun in crafting.
The two things that everyone thinks about on St. Patrick’s day are green and rainbows. So I used both of those things in these simple Oreo cookies!
You don’t even have to use Oreos – dip some sugar cookies or your favorite cookies from the store. I just loved how the green popped on the chocolate Oreos. For a bit of fun, use mint Oreos on St. Patrick’s Day!
St. Patrick’s Day Oreos Tips
The entire recipe is in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. First, I have some additional tips that will help you make them.
Kitchen Tools Needed:
Stir The Candy Melts Frequently
As the candies melt, stir it frequently. I like to heat it in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Don’t leave it in the microwave too long or else the candy might overcook and stick to the bowl.
Use Parchment Paper
The Oreos will stick to the baking sheet, so line the baking sheet with parchment paper first. You can also choose to use a silicone mat instead of parchment paper. Since you are not cooking them, even wax paper will work.
Drizzle Green Candy on Top Instead
I dipped each cookie halfway in candy melts. Then, I shook off excess candy melt and placed them carefully on a lined cookie sheet. Alternatively, you can place the melted candy in a piping bag and pipe the green candies on top of the Oreos.
Sprinkles Are Optional
The rainbow sprinkles are completely optional, but they add such a fun touch that I suggest you add them!
Let The Cookies Chill
Let set in the refrigerator for a minimum of 10 minutes. This is how the melted candy will harden. Enjoy the luck!
Sure, these would be great to celebrate St. Patty’s Day but you can choose any candy melt colour to match any of your upcoming parties. These quick treats are a great way to add some color to a dessert table.
