How Far in Advance Can You Make these Oreo Cookie Valentine Love Bugs?

You can easily make Chocolate dipped Oreo Cookies a week in advance. Store them at room temperature without any cover for a couple of days.

How Do You Store Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookies?

As long as there isn’t anything perishable on the cookies, the chocolate-dipped cookie can sit out at room temperature for up to a couple of weeks. If you plan on keeping them stored for a special occasion, you can cover them in an air-tight container and store them at room temperature.

Should I Refrigerate my Chocolate Dipped Treats?

I do not recommend refrigerating or freezing chocolate as condensation will become apparent on the chocolate.

Why does my hardened melted chocolate have white specks on it?

It sometimes happens and this is perfectly normal. It is called a sugar bloom. The cocoa butter in the chocolate has risen to the surface and settled. If you are using pure chocolate, you can temper it before working with it to avoid such spots.

Are you ready to make these cute Oreo Cookies for Valentine’s Day? Let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need…

  • Oreo Cookies
  • Red melting chocolate

Additional Equipment Needed:
