  • 1 bag white melting candy wafer I used AC Moore brand
  • 1 small black food gel container I used AC Moore brand
  • 15 Halloween Oreos
  • Halloween Sprinkles
  • Candy Eyes


  • Microwave the candy melts in a dry, microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring between each.
  • Once candy is melted, add 1 tsp of black food gel to your candy melts.
  • Stir thoroughly to combine colors. Add more gel if needed.
  • Dip each Oreo into the melted candy and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Top with candy eyes and sprinkles.
  • Allow cookies to harden in fridge before enjoying.


 After this experience, I must admit, next time, I will strictly use black Wilton candy wafers, and will not be ambitious to make my own black. While it can be achieved it took nearly the entire gel container to get this almost purple-hued black. Unless your store does not carry these, I recommend using the pre-made black wafers versus trying to mix your own.
