  • Sprinkles. Change the sprinkles for any season or occasion. You can easily make these easy Christmas Oreos for any event.
  • Make Oreo Pops. Similar to cake pops, you just put a stick inside the oreo prior to dipping. This would be so fun for parties. You can wrap each one in cellophane to hand out to friends and family.
  • You can use chocolate chips instead of candy melts. Try using white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate.
  • Add nuts to each cookie. Sprinkle a few chopped pecans or walnuts on each oreo.
  • Try different flavor dipped oreo cookies. Some ideas include peppermint oreo, peanut butter, red velvet, Golden Oreos and more. You can use classic or double stuffed.
  • Only dip half. For another fun idea, only dip half the cookie in the candy melts. This is fun for something a little different with Oreo Christmas Cookies.

How to make Christmas Oreos:

  • Step 1. First, get out a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper or wax paper.

Step 2. Place the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in 30 second intervals. Stir after each increment so it does not burn.

Step 3. Now dip each Oreo in the melted candy. I like to use a fork to remove the Oreo carefully from the bowl. Remove any excess candy coating.

Step 4. Place the coated Oreo cookies on a baking sheet. Top with sprinkles so they look like Christmas ornaments. Make sure to do this before they dry.

Step 5. Let the cookies set until they are completely dry. It usually takes about an hour. Then serve on a platter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if you have excess chocolate?

When you place the cookies on the baking sheet, you might notice excess chocolate around it. To prevent this from drying like this, I have a simple little trick for you.

Just take a toothpick and draw a circle around each Oreo. This will make sure that you have clean lines around each cookie when it dries.

How to store?

Put the chocolate dipped oreos inside an air tight container in the fridge. I suggest placing parchment paper in between each layer of cookies so they don’t stick to each other.

They will last up to 2 weeks if you need to make them in advance.

What is the difference between candy melts and white chocolate?

The difference between candy melts and white chocolate is cocoa butter. White chocolate has this ingredient whereas candy melts do not.

Candy melts have vegetable oil instead. The vegetable oil helps to give the chocolate covered oreo cookies a nice sheen once they dry.

If you do not want to use candy melts, you can use white chocolate. Just add food coloring to the melted chocolate for the desired color.

Decoration ideas

  • Drizzle with different color candy melts on top. I think red and green would be pretty swirled on top of the ones coated in white.
  • Sprinkles. The ideas are endless for sprinkles as you can use any type you like. Let the kids make faces with the sprinkles for even more fun.
  • Crushed candy canes. Take peppermint candy or candy canes and crush. Sprinkle on the cookies for a festive and tasty treat.
  • Mini chocolate chips. Sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips on top.
  • Crushed Oreo crumbs. Take a few cookies and turn into crumbs. Sprinkle on top of the oreo cookies.

Pro Tips:

  • Prepare the pan. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper on the baking sheet. Clean-up is a breeze when you can just toss the paper in the trash.
  • Allow to set on a baking sheet. Don’t use a cooling rack for the cookies. It is best to put them on a baking sheet. The cooling rack will not support the cookies as they have not set yet. The chocolate will harden around the wires and make a mess.
  • Melt the candy in intervals. Don’t try to do it all at once or you risk it becoming overcooked.
  • Stir the candy melts until it is really smooth. If there are any lumps in it, your Oreo cookies will not be coated properly.
  • Use good ingredients. The chocolate covered Christmas oreos will be better with high-quality chocolate.
