Use candy clay to decorate an assortment of Halloween Mickey Mouse Oreo Cookies. You'll have fun turning Mickey Mouse into a pirate, witch, vampire, mummy, jack-o-lantern, devil, wizard, and Frankenstein's monster for your Halloween parties.
There is just something so magical about Mickey Mouse and there's no better holiday to create some magic of your own, than Halloween.
I came up with the design for these cookies last winter after seeing Kim, The Partiologist and Amy from Living Locurto transform Mickey Mouse into the most adorable Christmas cookies. Kim's beautifully designed Disney Themed Sugar Cookies were masterfully decorated using royal icing and Amy's sweet no-bake Mickey and Minnie Christmas Oreo Cookies were dipped and decorated with Candy Melts.
I chose to decorate my Halloween Mickey Mouse Oreo Cookies using Candy Clay (modeling chocolate).
Have you ever made or used Candy Clay?
Candy Clay is a simple two ingredient recipe that makes a fondant like dough that tastes like chocolate.
I just published Candy Clay Creations, an in-depth 118-page e-book filled with tips and tricks for working with candy clay. It's the ultimate guide to making and decorating with candy clay.
In the video tutorial for this post (which may play in the sidebar if you are on a pc), you will see how to make these Mickey Mouse Halloween cookies using 1 standard-sized OREO Cookie and 1 mini OREO Cookie:
Mickey Mouse Devil Cookie
Frankenstein's Mickey Mouse Monster Cookie

Watch the video to see how to make the Mickey Mouse Oreo Cookies then make candy clay to use for decorating your cookies.
To make most of the decorations you can simply:
- roll out candy clay on a silicone mat or a corn starch or powdered sugar-dusted cutting board
- cut out the decorations using a hobby knife, cookie cutters, plunger cutters, or kitchen shears
- use a clay extruder to make candy clay ribbons
- a very small amount of clear piping gel or water to attach the candy clay pieces together
- melted chocolate or Candy Melts to attach the candy clay decorations to the Oreo Cookies
In the instructions below, I'll show you the tools I've used, but you can choose what is easiest for you.
Mickey Mouse Wizard Cookies
- Roll out yellow candy clay as thin as possible.
- Roll out blue candy clay to about ⅛th inch thickness.
- Use a small star plunger cutter or metal cutter to cut two stars out of the yellow candy clay.
- Cut one crescent moon out of the yellow candy clay using a round fondant cutter or knife.
- Draw a wizard hat on paper then use it as a template to cut a blue candy clay wizard hat.
- Use piping gel or water as "glue" to attach the stars and moon to the hat.
- Let candy clay wizard hat dry for 10 minutes.
- Use melted chocolate or Candy Melts to attach the hat to the Oreo Cookie Mickey Mouse.
Mickey Mouse Pirate Cookies
- Roll out red and light grey candy clay.
- Cut a red candy clay circle using a hobby knife, kitchen shears, or a cookie cutter that is the same size as the Oreo.
- Cut that circle into a crescent moon shaped Bandana.
- Cut two small pointed ovals for the tails of the Bandana and cut a small circle for the knot.
- Attach the tails and knot to the Bandana using piping gel or water.
- Cut a white strip and an eye patch out of white.
- Use melted candy melts to attach the candy clay Bandana and eye patch to the Mickey Mouse Oreo Cookie.
Mickey Mouse Jack-O-Lantern Cookies
- Roll out orange candy clay.
- Cut one large circle that is the same size as a regular Oreo Cookie and two small ones that match the mini Oreo Cookies.
- Use a gum paste veining tool or a toothpick to draw the lines of the pumpkin onto each circle of candy clay.
- Use a mini triangle cutter or a hobby knife to cut out eyes and a nose in the larger orange circle.
- Use a hobby knife to cut a mouth (adding teeth, if desired).
- Cut a small curved piece off each small orange candy clay circle to match the Oreo ears on Mickey mouse.
- Brush melted candy melts on the backside of each candy clay piece and press them onto the Oreo.
Mickey Mouse Vampire Cookies
- Roll out purple, black, and white candy clay.
- Cut a purple and a black circle that is the same size as the Oreo Mickey head.
- Cut the black circle using the top of a heart-shaped cookie cutter or a hobby knife to get the vampire's widow's peak (hair).
- Attach the widow's peak to the top of the purple candy clay circle using a very small amount of piping gel or water.
- Cut two triangular shaped fangs out of white candy clay.
- Use a hobby knife or gum paste pick to draw a smile onto the purple candy clay circle opposite the black widow's peak.
- Attach two fangs at the bottom edge of the smile using a very small amount of piping gel or water.
- Attach the candy clay decorations to the Oreo Mickey head using melted Candy Melts or chocolate.
Mickey Mouse Mummy Oreo Cookies
- Roll a heaping tablespoonful of white candy clay into a log and insert it into a clay extruder fitted with the large ribbon disc.
- Insert the plunger and extrude the candy clay in long ribbons.
- If you don't have a clay extruder you can roll out some white candy clay and cut it into ¼ inch wide strips.
- Lay a strip of white candy clay over the top of the Oreo Cookie and cut it off so that you have about ½ inch of the strip to wrap around and press onto the back of the cookie.
- Continue adding strips making the Oreo Mickey look like he's wrapped up like a mummy.
- Add some strips over each mini Oreo Cookie ear then insert each ear into the larger Oreo cookie.
- Dust some cocoa powder over the white candy clay strips to make the mummy look old.
Minnie Mouse Oreo Witch Cookies
- Roll out orange, purple, and green candy clay.
- Cut a witch hat out of paper and use it as a template to cut a hat out of orange candy clay.
- Cut a hatband out of purple and a small green buckle out of green.
- Attach the hatband to the orange hat using a small amount of piping gel or water.
- Attach the green buckle in the middle of the purple hatband.
