With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I set out to create a festive (and entirely gluten-free) alternative to one of my favorite sweet treats — Valentine’s Day Oreos!

We all know that Valentine’s Day is for celebrating the love that we’re lucky enough to share with those special people in our lives and that the best marker of a great celebration is the food! These Gluten-Free Valentine’s Chocolate Covered Oreos are a lot of fun to make with your little ones and can be packaged up for gift-giving to your favorite Valentine this year.

I’m so excited to hear your feedback on this gluten-free cookie recipe! Tell me it’s not love at first bite!

Are Oreos Gluten Free?

Good news! Nabisco (who makes regular Oreos) is releasing Gluten Free Oreos later this month! They’ll be available in both regular and Double Stuffed. FYI, this is not a sponsored post. I’m just genuinely thrilled that the real deal will finally be available and I know many of you are too.

If you don’t want to wait for Nabisco Gluten Free Oreos, there are plenty of other options out there. Some of our favorite gluten free chocolate cookies have been Kinnikinnick K-Toos and Goodie Girl Chocolate Creme Cookies.

Glutino and Walmart also make gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies which are pretty good, just not our first picks.

What You Need To Know About This Gluten-Free Valentine’s Chocolate Covered Oreos Recipe:

You have creative control for this recipe. Feel free to substitute the recipe with your favorite chocolate. You can add some pizazz with crushed candy, sprinkles, or mini marshmallows on top of the cookies.

Insert a popsicle or cake pop stick into the cookies to make Oreo Pops and wrap the top with Valentine’s Day cellophane wrap for a festive touch. You can even create a “dozen roses” by wrapping twelve cookies in this way and distributing them to friends and family.

This chocolate covered Oreos recipe will impress even those that aren’t exclusively gluten-free.

Key Ingredients for Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Oreos

  • Gluten Free Oreo Cookies (or similar chocolate sandwich cookies) 
  • White Chocolate Almond Bark (vanilla or chocolate, or melted chocolate chips) 
  • Sprinkles, optional – I use Sweetapolita sprinkles for gluten free.
  • Gel Food Coloring, optional – AmeriColor is the only brand of gel food coloring I use. It’s perfect!

Equipment Needed to Make Gluten-Free Valentine’s Oreos

  • Microwave-safe mixing bowl, such as Pyrex.
  • Mixing spoon
  • Fork – for dipping the cookies into the chocolate. Or use special Chocolate Dipping Tools to help avoid using excess chocolate and make it easier.
  • Sheet pan
  • Parchment paper or Wax Paper – I prefer wax paper.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Oreos

Step 1. Heat the chocolate almond bark according to the package directions. Most melting wafers require you to melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally.

Step 2. Dip the Oreos one at a time into the melted chocolate. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl.

Step 3. Place the dipped Oreos on a sheet pan lined with parchment or wax paper. Make sure to add any sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

Step 4. Allow the Oreos to set fully before transferring them to an airtight container. Store in the fridge or at room temperature for up to two days.

Tips for Making Gluten-Free Chocolate Covered Oreos

  • If you can’t find almond bark in the grocery store (sometimes called “coating chocolate”), you can also use chocolate melting wafers. For gluten free, be sure to check your labels or use gluten free white chocolate chips.
  • If your chocolate is too thick, try thinning it with 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening or stir in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil until you’ve reached your desired dipping consistency.
  • You can add food coloring to white chocolate bark, or purchase already dyed wafers from most craft stores.
  • Make sure to use gel food coloring if you want to dye the chocolate! I used Electric Pink in this recipe. Remember, a little goes a LOOOONG way!
  • Create a “DIY Bar” for kids to decorate the cookies how they’d like. Have small bowls with various toppings for kids to choose from. This is always a fun hands-on dessert!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Valentine’s Chocolate Covered Oreos are a simple and sweet treat to make for your special Valentine. Use gluten free Oreos or other chocolate gluten free cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 package gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies (about 40 cookies)
  • 1 package (1 lb, 8 ounces) White Chocolate Almond Bark (vanilla or chocolate)
  • Sprinkles, optional
  • Gel Food Coloring, optional (see notes)

Instructions

    1. Heat the chocolate almond bark according to the package directions. Most melting wafers require you to melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring occasionally. 
    2. Dip the gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies one at a time into the melted chocolate. Allow any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. 
    3. Place the dipped cookies on a sheet pan lined with wax paper. Make sure to add any sprinkles before the chocolate hardens. 
    4. Allow the Oreos to set fully before transferring them to an airtight container. You can speed up the hardening process by placing the sheet pan in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
    5. Store in the fridge or at room temperature for up to two days. 

Notes

  1. If you can’t find almond bark in the grocery store (sometimes called “coating chocolate”), you can also use chocolate melting wafers or use chocolate chips. Be sure to read the label and check if the product is gluten free, if needed.
  2. You can add food coloring to white chocolate bark, or purchase already dyed wafers from most craft stores. 
  3. If your chocolate is too thick, try thinning it with 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening or 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. 
  4. Make sure to use gel food coloring if you want to dye the chocolate! I used AmeriColor Electric Pink in this recipe. 
  5. Gluten Free Oreos by Nabisco will be released in January 2021.
