What is the best chocolate for dipping?

You can use chocolate chips and place them in a microwavable safe dish along with a 1/2 tsp of shortening to give the chocolate a nice smooth consistency and flow when melted.

I like to use chocolate bark or chocolate candy coating, that has a microwavable melting tray, which makes melting the chocolate and dipping the cookies super easy.

How do you dip cookies in melted chocolate?

  1. Preheat oven to 35o degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.  Using your favorite pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough, break each cookie where scored and roll into a ball.  Bake cookies for 14 minutes, until golden brown.  Place cookies in freezer for 10 minutes so cookies can cool before dipping into melted chocolate. Two images showing how to make chocolate dipped cookies.

  3. Once all the cookies have been dipped take remaining chocolate and place in a piping bag or ziplock bag and cut a small piece of the corner off and drizzle melted chocolate over the top.  Let chocolate harden about 5 minutes and serve. 

Can chocolate dipped cookies be frozen?

  • Yes.  Place the cookies in a single layer inside a sealable plastic container lined with parchment paper, layer another piece of parchment paper on top and continue layering cookies.  Place in the freezer for up to a few months.

I promise these cookies will be kid approved and easy and fun to make.  My favorite, favorite thing about this recipe is I didn’t have to dirty and clean a ton of dishes since I used refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough.
