How To Make These Easy Decorated Ladybug Oreo Cookies

You’re not going to believe how simple this oreo cookie recipe is! It’s so much fun to create!

Start by melting the red candy melt wafers in a microwave-safe bowl, according to the directions on the package.

Stir and make certain they’re melted completely. (be careful, the bowl might be hot!)

Once the candy melts are melted and smooth, it’s time to dip the double-stuffed Oreos. You can even try the flavored ones!

The easiest way to do this is to put the Oreo on a fork (or slotted spoon as shown below) and dip it down into the red melted candy.

Let the excess drip off and then set them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Before the candy melt dries, add on the head of the lady bug and slightly push down. (the head is the Oreo thin)

Melt a few of the chocolate chips and make a stripe down the back of the ladybug and put two little brown dots on the head.

On top of those dots, add on the googly eyes and press down.

Let dry and enjoy!

They’re “almost” too cute to eat….almost.

But I’m sure you’ll find a way!

Tips For Making Ladybug Oreos

Here are some answers to questions we’ve been asked or asked ourselves. This is a super simple project, but sometimes you just gotta know.

I hear that, Mama.

Can you use something besides chocolate chips in this recipe?

You can. All you’re looking for is something brown that is a dot. Even mini M&M’s could be a fun addition if you want to use the brown ones. Or go all out and make rainbow beetle cookies!

In a pinch, chocolate sprinkles can work, too.

Do I have to use Double Stuff Oreos?

Nope. You can use whatever you have on hard or are craving.

While the thickness of Double Stuff Oreos helps make these cute little love bug cookies just right, it’s okay to be creative.

We’ve made dipped cookies even using chocolate chip cookies in a pinch for a party!

Will these Oreos melt?

Typically not. Unless they’re in super hot weather, they should be fine sitting out on a plate or on the counter.

If you notice them starting to melt, just put them in the fridge for a bit.

How do you store dipped Oreos?

You’re going to want to keep them in the fridge to keep them as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Make certain to put them in a container with a lid.

Any other ideas for a fun ladybug-themed day?

Absolutely! Books and crafts and themed snacks…what a perfect combination!

There are some awesome ladybug books, but our favorites here are The Grouchy Ladybug (who doesn’t love everything by Eric Carle?!) the Ladybug Girl series!
