These Easter Fudge Covered Oreos are a colorful and festive spin on the Oreo original and my version of the perfect fudgy Oreo cookie! They're easy to make and lots of fun to let the kids sprinkle all of the toppings onto! Mix your own sprinkle combo or use ready-to-go store-bought sprinkles!
In a medium saucepan, combine the fudge icing ingredients. Add the sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa.
Stir occasionally while heating to a rapid, rolling boil over medium-high heat. Set your timer and let the fudge icing boil for ONE FULL MINUTE. *This is so very important to the coating setting up correctly!
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Whisk or beat the icing for 3-5 minutes until the fudge is dark, glossy, and clinging to your whisk. The cooler the fudge icing gets, the slower the icing will drip from your utensils.
Gently drop or place your Oreos into the cooled icing directly for the easiest method of coating each cookie completely.
Using your tongs, flip and thoroughly coat each of the Oreos.
Allow as much of the fudge icing to drip from the Oreo cookie as possible.
Place each fudge-coated Oreo onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or work surface. Allow the coated cookies to cool completely so that the coating sets up.
Add the sprinkle mixture to the top of each coated Oreo cookie as you go (or after coating a few). The icing will hold the sprinkles in place, but don't wait too long as the icing is forming a 'shell' as it sets.
