Green candy melts
Green candy melts will be used to cover our Oreo cookies and give them that mystical witchy appearance. You can find these candy melts in most baking or candy supply stores or order them online. They melt easily and create a smooth and vibrant coat.
Purple candy melts
Add a pop of purple to your Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies with purple candy melts. These candy melts will be used to create the witches’ hat. The combination of green and purple will truly bring these cookies to life.
Orange candy melts

Decorating gel or icing
To add some extra pizzazz and detail to your Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies, you’ll need some decorating gel or icing. This will be used to draw on the witches’ eyes, mouth, and any other spooky designs you fancy. Choose colors that will stand out against the candy melt coating.
Sprinkles or candy eyes
For a little extra fun and texture, grab some sprinkles or candy eyes. Sprinkles can be used to add some colorful accents, while candy eyes give the witches’ faces a playful and mischievous look. Go wild with your creativity here!
To ensure that your Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies don’t stick to the surface and provide an easy clean-up, make sure to have some parchment paper on hand. This will also make it easier to transfer the cookies once they’re decorated.
Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s dive into the step-by-step process of making these irresistible Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies.
Melt the candy melts
Start by melting the candy melts according to the instructions on the packaging. You can either use a microwave-safe bowl or a double boiler for this step. Stir occasionally until the candy melts have melted completely and have a smooth consistency.
Dip and set the cookies
Once the candy melts are melted and ready, it’s time to dip the Oreo cookies into the green candy melt coating. Using a fork or a dipping tool, gently lower one cookie into the melted candy, making sure it is fully coated. Lift it out and allow any excess to drip off before placing it on a sheet of parchment paper to set. Repeat this process with the remaining cookies.
Attach pretzel sticks
While the candy melt coating is still wet, gently insert a pretzel stick into the cream filling of each coated Oreo cookie. This will serve as the witches’ broomstick. Make sure the pretzel is securely attached, but be careful not to push it all the way through the cookie.
Decorate the cookies
Once the candy melts have set and the pretzel sticks are firmly attached, it’s time to bring our witches to life! Use the decorating gel or icing to draw on the witches’ eyes, mouth, and any other spooky designs you desire. Get creative and make each cookie unique!
Let the cookies set
Allow the decorated Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies to set on the parchment paper for at least 30 minutes. This will ensure that the candy melts harden, and the decorations are well set before enjoying your witchy treats.
Tips and Variations
Here are some tips and variations to add even more creativity to your Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies:
Use different colors and designs
Don’t limit yourself to green and purple! Feel free to experiment with different colors of candy melts to create a variety of witches. Use different decorating gels or icings to give each witch a unique facial expression or design.
Use different types of cookies
If you’re not a fan of Oreo cookies, or if you simply want to switch things up, try using different types of cookies as the base for your witch cookies. Graham crackers, shortbread cookies, or even homemade sugar cookies can be a great alternative.
Use different decorations
In addition to sprinkles and candy eyes, you can incorporate other fun and spooky decorations into your cookies. Consider adding edible glitter, colored sugar, or edible pearls to make your witches truly stand out. Get creative with your decorations and let your imagination run wild!
Add a hat or broomstick
To take your Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies to the next level, consider adding a little paper witch hat or a miniature pretzel broomstick. Cut out tiny witch hats from colored paper and adhere them to the top of the cookies. Alternatively, break small pretzel sticks in half and insert them into the filling to create a broomstick effect.
Now, let’s address some frequently asked questions about these delightful Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies:
Can I use regular chocolate instead of candy melts?
While candy melts create a smooth and vibrant coating, you can definitely use regular chocolate if that’s what you have on hand. Simply melt the chocolate using the same methods outlined above and proceed with the instructions as usual.
Can I use other types of cookies?
Absolutely! While Oreo cookies make a great base for these witch cookies, you can use any type of cookie that suits your taste. Just make sure the cookies are firm enough to withstand the dipping and decorating process without crumbling.
How long do the cookies last?
Stored in an airtight container, these Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies can last up to a week. However, they are best enjoyed within the first few days after making them, when the cookies are still fresh and the candy melts are at their prime.
Can I make these cookies in advance?
Yes, you can make these Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies in advance. Once fully decorated and set, store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. However, keep in mind that the decorations may lose some of their vibrancy over time.
Get ready to put a spell on your taste buds with these enchanting Halloween Witch Oreo Cookies!
