Valentine’s Day conjures feelings of romance and excitement, especially if you’re spending the day with your loved one. Whether you’re spending the day at home, going out on the town, or even traveling somewhere special, it’s a day to celebrate those we love. And chocolate covered Oreo roses are perfect for your celebration!
Celebrating Valentine’s Day
One of my favorite Valentine memories was when my husband and I spent the week in Hawaii exploring while enjoying each other’s company. We had a great time visiting Oahu; one of our favorite places was the Dole Plantation where there’s so much good food, (hello, the original Dole Whip! Sorry, Disneyland), a gorgeous botanical garden, and the world’s largest maze. It was so much fun, and they even had a pineapple for cheesy photos!
But this year, we’re staying home for Valentine’s Day, and we’re excited to spend some time relaxing, eating some good food, and spending some time connecting.
If you’re staying home too, then it’s time to think about how to celebrate. It’s time to set a romantic table and select some delicious chocolates. Be sure to make something sweet like our heart-shaped gummy bear sugar cookies, and of course, our chocolate covered Oreo roses.

Chocolate Covered Oreo Roses are so easy and inexpensive to make for Valentine’s Day
The great thing about these cookies is that they are easy to make together. Sure, you can make them ahead of time and present them as an edible arrangement, but there’s also some fun in being able to stick your finger in the melted chocolate and wipe it on your loved one’s nose.

What you need for the recipe
All you need to enjoy our cookie roses are Oreos, white chocolate candy melts, and a rose flower mold. The great thing about this recipe is that it comes together in a little over half an hour, has two ingredients, and costs under $10 to make a dozen.
So let’s make some cookies!
How to make Chocolate Covered Oreo Roses
First you will want to melt the chocolate candy melts in a small bowl.
Second, pour the melted chocolate into the rose shaped candy mold. See how I’ve only filled the mold between half and two-thirds of the way full.
Note: If you want to make a different quantity of cookies, you’ll want to use one ounce of candy melts for each cookie. I’m using a small mold, so I melted 3 ounces at a time. If you have a larger mold, or if you’re using several molds at once, you can melt all of the candy at the same time.
Pro Tip: You may want to give the mold a gentle tap to make sure that the candy has spread evenly into the rose petals. I also like to smooth the top with a small spatula to make sure that the melted chocolate has spread evenly.
Next, place an Oreo in the center of the mold on top of the melted chocolate. Gently press down on the cookie to let it sink into the chocolate. Be mindful not to press so hard that the cookie reaches the mold. You don’t want to be able to see the cookie through the chocolate when you remove it from the mold.

Chocolate Covered Oreo Roses
- 12 oz Wilton Candy Melts red or pink
- 12 Oreo Cookies
- In a glass bowl, melt candy melts in the microwave according to the instructions on the package. We melted ours on defrost for about a minute, stirring halfway.
- In your rose shaped candy mold, fill with candy mold about halfway to two-thirds of the way full.
- Place an Oreo in the center of each chocolate-filled rose mold.
- Gently press the Oreo into the chocolate so that the chocolate comes up around the sides. Be careful not to press so hard that the cookie touches the mold as you do not want the cookie to be visible from the top.
- Place the mold in the refrigerator to chill for about half an hour or until the chocolate has set.
- To remove the chocolate covered Oreo roses from the mold, invert the mold over a plate, give it a gentle twist, and tap the cookies onto the plate.
