Decorated Oreo Christmas Cookies 

‘Tis the season to be making (and eating) treats to share with family and friends. These Christmas Oreos are a fun holiday version of chocolate covered Oreos that are decorated with adorable Christmas trees and snowflakes. 

They are dipped in smooth, melted chocolate and make a great addition to any Christmas Dessert Board or holiday gift idea. You only need 2 ingredients and they are the perfect dessert for the kids to help out with. My kids had so much fun decorating them with me!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Oreos

  1. Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave at 50% power. Stir until smooth.
  2. Dip your Oreos into the chocolate with a fork. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
  3. Place on wax or parchment paper. Draw a circle around the Oreo with a toothpick if there is excess so that it will dry with clean lines.

Christmas Oreo Decorations

Once the dipped Oreos have set, it’s time to decorate! We love making the two different versions below:

For snowflakes: Pipe melted white chocolate in snowflake shapes on top of the Oreos. You can even add some white sprinkles on top while the white chocolate is still wet.

For Christmas trees: Use melted green chocolate wafers and then pipe on top in a Christmas tree shape. Decorate with dots of red melting wafers, or use red sprinkles to make ornaments. Then use milk chocolate melting wafers for the stem.

Tips for Making Chocolate Dipped Oreos

  • Use high quality chocolate (not chocolate chips). I highly recommend the Ghirardelli melting wafers for taste and texture.
  • Make sure your chocolate is smooth before dipping.
  • Place parchment paper on a baking sheet to make it easy to transfer.
  • Make sure to remove excess chocolate from the bottom of the Oreo before placing onto the paper. If there’s too much of a spill around, simply draw a circle with a toothpick around the base.
  • Store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.

Variations

  • Use white, milk or dark chocolate depending on flavor preference.
  • Make with different flavors, such as peppermint Oreos.
  • Decorate with colored sprinkles.
  • Top with chopped nuts.
  • Add crushed candy canes.
  • Sprinkle the top with crushed Oreo crumbs.
  • Place on a lollypop stick before dipping and then wrap in cellophane.

  • Place the Oreo cookies on a fork and dip one by one into the melted chocolate. Turn with a fork to coat completely in chocolate. When the entire cookie is covered with chocolate, lift it out using the fork. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl several times to let the excess chocolate drip off.

  • To make snowflakes: Place the white chocolate melting wafers in a zipper bag or a disposable decorating bag. Heat for 30 seconds at 50% power, then knead the melting wafers to stir. Continue to heat at 30 second intervals at 50% power, until melted. Snip a small corner off the bag and pipe the white chocolate in snowflake shapes on top of the Oreos. Allow to cool completely.
