These Ocean Themed Dipped Oreos are too cute to pass up. Not only do they look like little oceans but they are out of this world delicious as well.
If you have a child who loves to decorate cookies, they’re going to love this recipe. While the end result is that you get to eat the Oreos and that’s always a win, the biggest part of the fun is getting to decorate the Oreos.
Let each person in your household take charge and create their own Ocean Oreo. It’s so much fun to see every single one turn out into their own edible art.
Ocean Themed Dipped Oreos
While you don’t have to technically do any baking here, that’s no reason to disclaim these dessert Oreos. They look fun and festive and taste great as well!
I think that not only are they super cute, but they’d be perfect for an ocean-themed party or a movie night where the family movie is centered around something relating to water.
Anytime that you can combine the power of cooking with something fun and exciting, do so! It’s little ideas like this that your children will remove for a very long time.
The key part to getting the look and consistency of these Oreos is that you need to not overheat the chocolate melts. If that happens, you’ll need to thin it out again with coconut oil (and only coconut oil!) by about 2 tablespoons.
You’ll know that you went too far in the microwave if the chocolate becomes really, really thick.
Then once you dip into the white and let dry, dip into the blue and add sprinkles and let dry, these Oreos are done and ready to eat!
Can you do this same dipping and decorating process with other cookies?
You can. I love to use Oreos for a couple of reasons.
- Oreos are awesome and taste amazing
- They’re the perfect round size and shape that just makes it easy to use. Plus, the size is helpful for portion control.
However, if you have another round cookie that you want to try this simple decorative design out on, you can! Use your judgment and have fun creating this ocean-themed design however you want.

Ocean Themed Dipped Oreos
These Ocean Themed Dipped Oreos are so cute and fun!
- 1 (15.35 ounce) Package Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
- 1 (12 ounces) Package blue candy melts wafers
- 2 (12 ounce) Packages white candy melts wafers or vanilla-flavored almond bark
- Rainbow nonpareil sprinkles
- Fish sprinkles
Start by lining a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Next, melt the white candy coating and make certain that you don't burn it. If you notice that it's too thick, you can add in 1 teaspoon coconut oil to help. (only 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per bag of candy melts)
Grab an Oreo and dip each one into the melted candy. Take out the Oreo and shake off any excess.
If you notice air bubbles that start to form, pop them with a toothpick.
Place the Oreo on the waxed paper and allow to cool completely. (If you want it to be quicker, place in the fridge or freezer)
Next, melt the blue candy coating the same as you did the while. (if it gets too thick, follow the same steps to thin)
Take half the blue coating and spoon it over the white cookies. Then you have to add the sprinkles asap to create an aquarium scene.
Let it set and dry and then store in an airtight container.
