These Salted Caramel Dipped Snickerdoodle Cookies are a delightful and effortless cookie that combines the comforting flavors of snickerdoodle cookies with the irresistible allure of salted caramel-flavored chocolate. The snickerdoodle sandwich cookies are available ready-to-go (think snickerdoodle-flavored Oreos) and are delicious on their own, and we elevated the cookies by dipping them in salted caramel-flavored candy melts. Finally, we've added gingerbread designs to turn a yummy treat into a Christmas time cookie that would be perfect for gift-giving or as a party treat.

Salted Caramel Dipped Snickerdoodle Cookies Recipe

We've used chocolate candy melts in this recipe for a delicious, easy-to-make recipe. If using real chocolate (ingredient list will list cocoa butter and/or cocoa liquor), then the chocolate should be tempered, or the bark will remain tacky or have streaks throughout.

Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper onto the counter. Place the salted caramel wafers into a microwave-safe bowl.
Melt the candy melts using 20 second intervals, stirring in between to ensure the chocolate melts evenly and doesn’t scorch. Continue melting until the melts are fluid.

You can add paramount crystals to the melted salted caramel wafers if it isn't fluid enough for easy dipping.

Drop the sandwich cookie into the melted candy. Using a dipping fork, push the cookie into the candy to completely immerse the cookie. Lift the cookie out and tap the dipping fork against the bowl to allow excess candy drip off, then place the cookie on the parchment.
Immediately place a chocolate transfer sheet, textured side down, on top of the warm candy dipped cookie. Or allow the cookie to set completely and pipe on the gingerbread face using melted white, dark, and pink chocolate piped from a tipless bag.

How to Store Dipped Snickerdoodle Cookies

Dipped sandwich cookies can be kept at room temperature for several weeks. You can also make the dipped cookies up to 4 months ahead of time if you freeze the cookies. For best results, place the candy in a candy box that is lined with plastic wrap. Wrap the entire box with plastic wrap, and then a layer of foil. Place in the freezer for up to two months. Bring the chocolate to room temperature before unwrapping the box.
