How to Make Homemade Confetti Oreos

I like Oreos. I would even go as far as to say they should be a staple in any American Household. They are great in packed lunches, go well with milk or peanut butter, and can be used in numerous sweet and delicious recipes. (See Buzzfeed's 22 Mouthwatering ways to Eat An Oreo for reference). Overall, Oreos are great. They are milk's favorite cookie for a reason. But, if I am being honest, which I always like to be honest with you guys, I think the Golden Oreo is better than the original. I know they were only introduced in 2004 (so they are still kind of new), but unlike some of Oreo's other flavors (cough Banana Split cough) they have stuck around - and that is because they are GOOD. I know saying something is better than the original is serious business - but I am confident with my decision and I am sticking with it. I like Golden Oreos better.

Quick and Easy Confetti Oreos Recipe

In other news, I have been doing some market research lately (pinterest), and I have discovered that sprinkles make everything better. They just make everything cuter and feel more festive. And they just make me happy (as you probably could have guessed from my blog named). So I decided to take some Golden Oreos and give them a little Sprinkles for Breakfast makeover. This recipe is super easy, and does not require any kind of skill (or oven). Basically, they are the perfect accent to any party because you can customize your colors any way you want - and they are adorable! And I guess, if you want, you can use regular Oreos too - but I stand by what I said, and I really think you should give the Golden Oreo a try.

Confetti Oreos | Sprinkles For Breakfast


  • 1/4 pound melting chocolate (I used pink and blue)
  • 20 Golden Oreos
  • Sprinkles


  1. Place wax or parchment paper on a flat work surface.
  2. Put melting chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each heating, until it is melted.
  3. Dip each cookie halfway into the chocolate, coating the back and front evenly.
  4. Lightly tap the cookie on the rim of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate.
  5. Place cookie on paper and add sprinkles.
  6. Repeat this process with the rest of the cookies and let them cool on the paper until the chocolate is completely hardened.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.

Do you think I could make those Oreo cookies ahead of time and freeze for a week?

Lindsay Nathanson

Yes, you can. But make sure you defrost them in the fridge instead of taking them right out of the freezer to defrost.


How long will these last in a container for fear of staleness??? Looking to see how long before the party I can make and store them

Lindsay Nathanson

Hi Lesley! These will last about a week in an airtight container!


Did you buy white melting chocolate and add food dye or buy candy melts? I can’t find the colored kind on Amazon. Thanks! This looks yummy!

Lindsay Nathanson

You can do it either way! I prefer to go the white melting chocolate and then color it myself - that way I can get the perfect color. But make sure you get candy coloring food coloring. That is very important!


These look so ????. One question, is there any else I can use instead of chocolate? I can’t eat chocolate but want to make these for an upcoming party I’m hosting. Thanks.

Lindsay Nathanson

Hi Beth! The only other substitute I can think of is royal icing. This is an icing that will dry hard. You could also add a little extract as well to give it some flavor!

Hello! What is ‘melting chocolate’? And where can I get it? Grocery stores?

Lindsay Nathanson

You can use regular white chocolate, but melting chocolate will give you a much smoother coating and make it easier to dip the Oreos. They do sell it as some grocery stores, but they also sell it at places like Michael's Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, and Target. You can also order it on Amazon!


Im sure these don't last long due to being do you buy chance know how to store them and how long they stay fresh before going soft?

Lindsay Nathanson

They definitely don't last long! But if you keep them in an airtight container at room temperature, they should last for a week!
