I've got a fun holiday-themed treat for you today. Have you ever tried chocolate covered wafer cookies? Oh, man! They are such an easy treat to make but they taste amazing! It's crazy how adding a coating of chocolate really elevates a simple wafer cookie!
I decided to make St. Patrick's Day treats and knew that these chocolate covered wafers would be festive, fun, easy and delicious.
Want to make some too? Here's how!
Ingredients: (This post may contain affiliate links)
- 1 package sugar wafers
- 1 package green melting chocolate (I bought mine from ConsumerCrafts.com)
Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Here's a really helpful tip for working with melting chocolate. Warm up a rice bag or heating pad and rest your chocolate bowl on top. This will keep your chocolate warm for a long time so you won't have to stop dipping to heat it back up!
I was able to dip all of my wafers without heating my chocolate back up. If you've ever worked with chocolate before, you'll know how amazing that is!
I tried several methods for covering my wafer cookies, but my favorite was actually just spreading the chocolate on the cookies like frosting. Since the wafers are delicate, this seemed the easiest to me than dipping straight into the bowl.
Add sprinkles immediately before the chocolate hardens.
And that's it! A festive treat that tastes great and is easy to make! I'm thinking I need to make these for every holiday!
If you don't want to dip the entire wafer, you can do just one end, like this:
The rainbow colored sprinkles are my favorite. How about you?
