Decorating Chocolate Covered Oreo Christmas Cookies
Ready to get started on your chocolate dipped Christmas Oreos? Once you have all the ingredients and some time to make these Christmas Oreo cookies, you can start to have fun with these. The decorated version could well become your next favorite cookie. They make perfect gifts too.
It’s easier to do one colour or design at a time, so if you like you can do several batches. I like to make different designs if I’m going to give these as a gift or even offer them on a plate. It’s just nice having different ones to choose from. Anyway, pick out which colour candy melt (chocolate melting wafers) you want to use and microwave them to melt. You will need a microwave-safe bowl for this. Chocolate candy melts are great for chocolate dipped Oreos.
Next you can scoop some of the melted chocolate mixture into a silicon mould and then you can dip an Oreo in there. Repeat with the remaining cookies. This chocolate covered Oreos recipe will take around half an hour to set in the refrigerator.
When you’re sure these Christmas dipped Oreo cookies are set, you can add any other frosting or decorations you like. Feel free to come up with your own designs. Sprinkles, edible gold leaf, pretzel sticks, chocolate chips, or writing icing are just some easy Oreo cookie ideas for your dipped and decorated Oreos. Melted white chocolate, dark chocolate and festive sprinkles are all fun to use.
So you might be wondering exactly how to decorate Oreo cookies. There’s no ‘wrong way’ to make candy or chocolate covered Oreo Christmas cookies. Chocolate covered Oreo cookies are easy to make though. The main thing is just to have fun with this decadent treat! If you don’t have a mould, you can still make these. They don’t have to be made in a silicon mould although it does make things easier.
Easy Oreo Cookie Ideas
Oreos are pretty versatile. I’m sure you’ve seen them everywhere from cheesecakes to elaborately decorated cakes. Crumbled, they make a great ice cream, chocolate covered ice cream bites, frozen yogurt topping or even tasty Oreo cookie dough. They’re also amazing with a cold glass of milk!
Oreos are technically vegan so if you want vegan chocolate covered Oreo Christmas cookies, make sure the other ingredients are vegan too. You can experiment with different flavours and colours as well as designs. Have fun making these dipped and decorated Oreos your own!
You can stick with a Christmas theme by choosing festive colours. For example, you could use a green coating on 1/3 of the cookies, a red coating on another 1/3 and maybe white on the rest.
They are so easy to make a little “extra” special by using edible gold leaf on the cookies.
Consider red and green sprinkles over the chocolate coating to make them even more Christmassy. I love making snowman faces on the white ones! You don’t have to be artsy because they’re easy. Pipe on some melted milk chocolate for the eyes and mouth and then use some melted orange candies for a nose.
How to Use Writing Icing
Something that really makes these Christmas Oreo cookies special is using writing icing. You can imagine how much easier it is to use ‘writing icing’ than fiddle about with frosting and a piping bag if you aren’t used to decorating. Writing icing is available online from Walmart or Amazon.
Cut the line by the tip to use it as writing icing or the second line for more coverage. With writing icing you can add details such as the snowman eyes, nose and mouth, make drizzle or zigzag patterns or even pipe names on there. Why not add greetings such as Merry Christmas or Ho ho ho! I’m sure you can think of more easy Oreo cookie ideas for your Christmas cookies too. There are definitely a lot of Oreo decorating ideas to choose from.
What are Candy Melts?
Candy melts also help make chocolate covered Oreo Christmas cookies simple. Just like with the writing icing, there are different brands of candy melts, and you can get them online. Choose from all kinds of colours and flavours.
You aren’t limited to Christmas either. Once you are a pro at making DIY covered Oreos you can dip some in orange candy coating then use writing icing to add black spiders for Halloween or make them pink with red love heart sprinkles for Valentine’s Day! See how many ideas to explore once you know how to make chocolate covered Oreo cookies like a pro! If you prefer, you could use almond bark or even white chocolate chips instead.
