How To Make Wafer Cookies Dipped in Chocolate
The great part about making these cookies is that there aren’t a ton of steps. Make sure you scroll down for the printable recipe with the exact measurements and ingredients.
You’ll need to melt the chocolate wafers in short spurts so that they’re creamy and melted. You can follow the directions on the bag to make sure that you’re doing it well.
Make sure that you’re stirring in-between times so that all of the chocolate melts are melted and creamy.
I use a mixture of chocolate melts and white chocolate melts but you can easily change it up and use what you want.
Once the chocolate is melted, dip the wafers halfway into the chocolate and then set them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
While the chocolate is still wet, add on the sprinkles, if you’re adding them.
Variations & Substitutions
While this recipe is super easy as it is, you can totally change it up a bit each time that you make them.
I like to use vanilla wafers and chocolate chips but don’t forget that there are strawberry wafers that you can use, too. This would be a fun way to make Valentine’s Day look with the color pink!
Toppings can also be changed up during this process. Sprinkles are great but so are mini chocolate chips, edible glitter, or even a bit of crushed-up graham crackers as well. You can easily set up bowls of topping options and let the kids have fun changing out the options!
Tips For Making Chocolate Wafer Cookies
These cookies are not hard to do at all. They’re fun and simple and literally turn out great every single time. But even though it’s easy, there are tips to keep in mind.
I’ve found that using the chocolate chips over chocolate wafers adds more of that chocolate taste that I’m looking for. If you want to use chocolate melts, you totally can.
Adding the sprinkles or toppings while the chocolate is still wet is key. If you don’t, none of the toppings are going to stick.
Make sure that you store these cookies in an airtight container once you’ve eaten all that you want. This will keep them fresh and delicious for several days. You don’t have to store them in the fridge.
If you want to freeze these cookies, go for it. You can easily add them to a freezer-safe bag and save them for later.
