Patriotic Oreo Ingredients
To make these easy Fourth of July cookies, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):
- Oreo Cookies
- White chocolate: You want to make sure you using a good melting chocolate. I like to use Wilton candy melts.
- Red chocolate
- Blue chocolate: The Wilton kit I linked above has a light blue chocolate, but I prefer to use this royal blue chocolate.
- Patriotic sprinkles: You can use any sprinkles of your choosing. I like these star sprinkles and these red white and blue nonpareils.
How to Make Red White and Blue Cookies
Line a sheet pan with a silicone mat or a sheet of parchment paper set it aside.
Place your white chocolate into a small mixing bowl. Melt your chocolate on 30-second intervals, stirring in-between every 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted.
Place an Oreo into the white chocolate using a fork. Make sure the Oreo is covered, remove it from the chocolate and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove the extra chocolate. Place the Oreo onto the sheet pan. Repeat this with all the Oreos.
Place the red and blue chocolate into separate small mixing bowls. Melt your chocolate on 30-second intervals, stirring in-between every 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted.
Place the chocolate into ziplock bags. Cut a small hole on the corner of each bag. The smaller the hole, the thinner the strips will be. Squeeze the bags and move it back and forth over the Oreos. If you move the bag back and forth quickly, you will end up with a thinner line.
While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle your sprinkles over the top of the cookies.
Place the tray into the fridge for 10 minutes until the chocolate has set.
Break any of the drizzles that have gone over the edges of the cookies, and enjoy!

My Oreos Keep Breaking When I Try to Dip Them
It sounds like your either pushing them around in the chocolate too hard, or your chocolate is too thick. If you want an easier way, you can hold onto one half of the cookie and then dip half of the cookie into the chocolate so you will end up with a half-dipped cookie.
How Do You Prevent the Big Pool of Chocolate at the Bottom of the Dipped Cookies?
You need to make sure you tap the fork on the edge of the bowl until it’s not dripping. You can also lightly run the Oreo bottoms on the edge of the bowl before placing it on the sheet pan.
My Sprinkles Will Not Stick to the Cookies. What Am I Doing Wrong?
You have let the chocolate sit too long; you need to work quickly with the chocolate because it dries quickly since it’s so thin. You can drizzle more of the color chocolate over the top and then try to sprinkle some of the sprinkles on the tops.
