These chocolate covered wafers make the perfect 5-minute birthday cookie! Easy prep, great results and all everyone will love them!

Wafer cookies were one of my favorite treats growing up. Just the perfect little bite of something sweet with a great crunch and those cute little layers. I was a strawberry wafer fan, but I went with vanilla and chocolate for this batch.

These cookies are super cheap at the grocery store – less than $1 a pack, and I already had white candy melts, chocolate squares, shortening, and sprinkles at home. These are a great option for a last minute get-together or as a back-up plan for more ambitious party treats. They are practically fool-proof. Of course, you can just do one colour or type of these cookies, but since they don’t take much effort, I didn’t mind spending the extra 2 minutes creating a little variety!

If you’re anything like me, I always get a bit too ambitious with party planning so treats like this totally save the day. I can fill up a whole plate with them and they look like they took more effort than they did – oh, and they taste great! I love that contrast between the smooth chocolate and the crunchy wafer cookies. (And the kids loved them, too!)

How to Make Chocolate Covered Wafer Cookies

First, assemble your ingredients:

  • 12 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 12 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 cup white candy melts
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or squares
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening or coconut oil
  • Sprinkles of choice

Place the candy melts and half a Tablespoon of shortening in a microwave-safe mug. We’re using a mug so we can have a deeper dip!

Zap for 25 seconds and give it a good stir. Microwave a bit longer if there are any lumps, stirring completely between each heating.

While the candy melts are in the microwave, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Once the candy melts are completely melted, adjust by adding more shortening or more melts for a smooth yet viscous consistency. Quickly dip the wafer cookies into the mug and set onto the parchment paper. (When you start getting to the bottom of the mug, you can use a spoon to help you coat the wafer cookies.)

While the candy coating is still wet, sprinkle on the sprinkles.

Repeat for the chocolate chips, if using.

Instead of sprinkles, you can alternatively choose to drizzle opposite colors onto the chocolate covered wafer cookies. (Dipping in the white candy melts and then drizzling with the melted chocolate, etc.)

These cookies will set and keep at room temperature, but I like to keep them in the fridge if the kitchen is bustling with party prep.
