Make the cutest Christmas cookies to add to your holiday trays and tins. These adorable Christmas OREOs look as sweet as they taste. Your whole family will have fun decorating snowmen, gingerbread men, polar bears, reindeer, and more.
How much do you love these chocolate-dipped OREO Cookies? I had so much fun making them for our Christmas Eve party. I can't wait to share them with my party guests.
Each decorated cookie is easy to make using either chocolate or white Fudge Covered OREO Cookies, candy, sprinkles, and candy melts or almond bark.
I created tutorials for several of the decorated cookies that I knew would be the most popular. I'll start by sharing links to these tutorials that have detailed step-by-step instructions and a printable recipe. Then, I'll share some short tutorials for the other designs. They are simple to make and don't need the detailed instructions.
OREO Reindeer, OREO Snowmen, Gingerbread OREOs, and OREO Penguins.
Click the links below the images to see instructions to make these decorated OREO Cookies for Christmas.
These adorable OREO Reindeer are decorated with candy antlers, royal icing eyes, and M&M noses. I used red noses so all of my treats look like Rudolph.
Making OREO Snowmen couldn't be easier. Each of these white Fudge Covered OREOs is decorated with orange slice noses and a black food coloring marker.
How cute are these Gingerbread OREOs? I love their rosy cheeks and big smiles. They are decorated with white candy melts, candy eyes, pink confetti sprinkles, and a black food coloring marker.
These darling little OREO Penguins are fun to serve for Christmas or at a zoo-themed party. They are fun to make with Tootsie Roll wings, white candy melt bellies, candy eyes, and orange M&M beaks.
No matter what cookies you decide to decorate, you'll start by unwrapping a package of white or chocolate fudge covered OREO cookies.
Then, to make them look prettier, you'll want to shave the excess chocolate from around the edge of the chocolate-dipped cookies using a sharp knife.
If the cookies have smudges or white marks, gently run the palm of your hand over the cookie to smooth out the chocolate and remove the smudges.
We'll start with a simple Snowflake OREO. To make these you'll pipe a snowflake design on top of a White Fudge Covered Cookie.

- White Fudge Covered OREOs
- Blue Candy Melts - You'll only need to melt 2 ounces of the blue candy melts to decorate 12 white OREOs. Heat them in a small microwave-safe bowl for 15-second increments, stirring after each until melted.
Use blue candy melts to create a pretty snowflake design on top of your OREO Cookies. I used a squeeze bottle to pipe the design onto the cookies. A zip-top bag or disposable pastry bag would work well too.
Pipe on a simple design by adding 3 criss-crossed lines to the cookie first. Then, pipe on two lines off the end of each of the criss-crossed lines. Add dots in between to finish the design. Freeze the cookies for 5 minutes until the candy melts harden.
Christmas Light OREOs
To make these festive Christmas Light OREOs, you'll need:
- White Fudge Covered OREOs
- black food coloring marker
- Christmas Light Sprinkles
- melted white candy melts (or white almond bark, melting wafers, confectionery coating)
To make these Christmas Light OREOs, heat about 2 ounces of white candy melts in the microwave on high power for 15-second increments, stirring after each until melted.
Use a food coloring marker to draw lines on the cookie to look like the strands of Christmas lights. Give them some curve.
Attach an assortment of Christmas Light sprinkles so they look like they are hanging off the black lines.
You can add two rows of lights or three rows of lights. Either way, they look festive and fun!
Christmas Pudding OREOs
I've never had Christmas pudding but I do love how it looks so I couldn't help but create some Christmas pudding OREO cookies.
To make these, you'll need:
- chocolate Fudge Covered OREO Cookies
- melted white candy melts (I used bright white candy melts.)
- holly and berries sprinkles
Fill a squeeze bottle, zip-top bag, or disposable pastry bag with melted white candy melts.
Pipe drips of white candy melts along the top edge of a chocolate-covered OREO. Then add holly leaf and berry sprinkles along the top edge.
OREO Polar Bears
These sweet polar bears are too cute to hibernate this winter. Each adorable white chocolate OREO polar bear is decorated with:
- white chocolate chips - I used Callebaut White Callets but any large white chocolate chip will work.
- candy eyes - ⅜-inch royal icing eyes look super cute on these cookies.
- mini brown M&M's - Regular milk chocolate or peanut butter M&M minis are the perfect size for the polar bear's nose
- white candy melt wafers - Use small white candy melt wafers to make the polar bear's snouts. If your white wafers are too big, cut them using a round cookie cutter. You'll also need to melt some white candy melts to use as edible glue to attach the decorations.
Start by melting a few ounces of white candy melts in the microwave. Heat for 15-second bursts of high power, stirring after each until melted. You won't use it all but it's difficult to melt less than 1 ounce of candy melts.
Use the melted candy melts to attach a white candy melt wafer for the snout. Then, attach a mini brown M&M nose on the top middle part of the snout.
Cut off a curved edge on the white chocolate chips. You want the cut to be curved like the edge of the OREO. Use melted white candy melts to glue them onto the bear.
Hold the white chocolate chips in place until the chocolate hardens. To ensure they stay in place, brush more candy melts on the back seam of the white chocolate ear.
I hope you have a lot of fun decorating these cute OREOs for Christmas.
