These Christmas Oreos are so festive and adorable, and perfect for gifting!

I'm continuing my Christmas cookie series with these adorable Christmas Oreos! My Halloween Oreos were incredibly popular this year, so I figured it was high time for a Christmas version. They're just as cute as the Halloween cookies, and just as easy to make! I came up with five cute and colorful designs, and they all look so pretty together. I'll share instructions for each design below so you can make your own!

Christmas Tree Oreos

These Christmas tree Oreos are so simple, but totally stunning! I love that they are immediately recognizable, and really easy to make. I found the gold star sprinkles for the top at Michaels (for 99 cents - woot!) and used nonpareils for the ornaments. I really think any kind of sprinkles would work great for the ornaments, though. Don't forget to add the cute brown stem at the bottom!

Christmas Tree Oreos

8 Oreo cookies
6 ounces bright white candy melts
2 ounces green candy melts
8 gold star sprinkles
nonpareils or other sprinkles
1 ounce light cocoa candy melts

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Melt the white candy melts in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Dip the Oreos in the candy using a fork, coating them completely, then tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times to shake off the excess candy. Gently place the Oreos on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Add the green candy melts to a disposable piping bag and microwave at 50% power, kneading every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Snip a small piece off the bottom of the bag, and draw a Christmas tree shape on the top of the cooled Oreos. Add the star sprinkles and nonpareils. Melt the light cocoa candy melts in a disposable piping bag, snip a small piece off the bottom, and pipe a tree trunk below the tree.

Snowflake Oreos

This snowflake Oreos are so elegant and pretty, and I think the white sanding sugar is the perfect touch! I've found that practice makes perfect when piping snowflakes, and they're actually easier to pipe than you might think. I added sanding sugar to each cookie immediately after piping the snowflake, because I was worried about the candy setting up in between cookies.

Snowflake Oreos

8 Oreo cookies
6 ounces light blue candy melts
2 ounces white candy melts
white sanding sugar

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Melt the light blue candy melts in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Dip the Oreos in the candy using a fork, coating them completely, then tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times to shake off the excess candy. Gently place the Oreos on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Add the white candy melts to a disposable piping bag and microwave at 50% power, kneading every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Snip a small piece off the bottom of the bag, and pipe snowflake shapes on the top of the cooled Oreos. Sprinkle with the sanding sugar and let cool. Shake off the excess sanding sugar.

Christmas Light Oreos

I saw cookies with Christmas lights on them on Pinterest a while back, and I thought they would be such a fun idea for these Oreos! I used colorburst candy melts for the base, and I love the colorful flecks in there. The M&M's were surprisingly easy to cut in half (not like the pretzels - ha!), but you could also use candy-coated sunflower seeds if you prefer.

Christmas Light Oreos

8 Oreo cookies
6 ounces bright colorburst candy melts
2 ounces green candy melts
red, orange, yellow, green, and blue M&M candies, cut in half

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Melt the colorburst melts in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Dip the Oreos in the candy using a fork, coating them completely, then tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times to shake off the excess candy. Gently place the Oreos on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Add the green candy melts to a disposable piping bag and microwave at 50% power, kneading every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Snip a small piece off the bottom of the bag, and pipe the strings for the lights on the top of the cooled Oreos. Pipe small dollops of green candy for the sockets of the lights, then place an M&M half, cut side down on top of each socket.

Santa's Belt Oreos

These Santa's belt Oreos are so funny and jolly! I love the little bit of sparkle from the gold sanding sugar. I buy most of my sprinkles at Michaels because they have a great selection with lots of different color options, and I'm pretty sure this shiny gold sanding sugar came from Michaels. These Oreos are so festive and cute!

Santa's Belt Oreos

8 Oreo cookies
6 ounces red candy melts
1 ounce black candy melts
1 ounce yellow candy melts
gold sanding sugar

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Melt the red candy melts in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Dip the Oreos in the candy using a fork, coating them completely, then tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times to shake off the excess candy. Gently place the Oreos on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand 5-10 minutes. Add the black candy melts to a disposable piping bag and microwave at 50% power, kneading every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Snip a small piece off the bottom of the bag, and draw a black line across the middle of the red Oreos for the belt, then let cool completely. Melt the yellow candy melts in a disposable piping bag, snip a small piece off the bottom, and pipe a square for the belt buckle in the middle of the Oreo. Immediately sprinkle it with gold sanding sugar. Let cool, then shake off the excess sanding sugar.

Reindeer Oreos

I think these reindeer Oreos might be my favorite (mostly because I'm a sucker for anything with candy eyes!). The pretzels can be a little tricky to cut in half, but luckily you can just eat any of the pretzels that don't break neatly, so no one will be the wiser. I don't have any good advice for you except to be patient, and eventually you'll get the hang of it. The frustration is worth it for these cute little guys!

Reindeer Oreos

8 Oreo cookies
6 ounces light cocoa candy melts
8 pretzel twists, carefully cut in half to form antlers
8 red M&M candies
16 small candy eyes

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Melt the light cocoa candy melts in a microwave safe bowl at 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds, until completely melted. Dip the Oreos in the candy using a fork, coating them completely, then tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times to shake off the excess candy. Gently place the Oreos on the prepared baking sheet. Dip the end of the pretzel twists into the candy melts, then stick to the sides of the Oreos to form antlers. Add two candy eyes to each Oreo, and 1 M&M for the nose.

I hope you have as much fun making these adorable cookies as I did!
