Chocolate-covered Oreo cookies make a decadent dessert or snack. Dip the sandwich-style cookies into melted white, dark or milk chocolate to add even richer flavor. Make the chocolate treats for holiday or birthday parties or as gifts for friends and loved ones. If you make more chocolate-covered Oreo cookies than you can eat in one day, preserve them in a refrigerator or freezer, depending on how long you need to store them.

Arrange the chocolate-covered Oreo cookies in a single layer in a plastic storage container that comes with an air-tight lid.

Place a piece of wax paper on top of the cookies and place a second layer of cookies on top of the paper, if necessary.

Press the air-tight lid on the plastic container to create a secure seal. Write the storage date on a piece of freezer tape and press it onto the plastic container.

Store the cookies in a refrigerator for up to five days.

Store the cookies in a freezer set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit for up to one month.
