Oreo Ornament Cookies
Perfect little treat for the holidays or a cookie exchange! Sometimes you don’t have to make a cookie from scratch for it to be magical- you can take an existing one to the next level.
Oreo’s are so versatile to work with, you can turn them into cookie pops, chocolate coated cookies, Oreo crumb crust, etc. This recipe takes a total of 20 minutes from start to finish, and half that time is drying time for the chocolate to harden. SO easy!
So let’s get into it!
What you’ll need…
• Pack of Oreo cookies
• Bag of white chocolate chips
• White Reese’s miniature cups
• Sprinkles or m&m’s
• Black cookie icing
How to make it…
First things first, you’re going to want to melt the white chips carefully. I don’t like to use the microwave method because in my experience, they haven’t melted evenly. Take a medium heat safe mixing bowl and place over boiling pot (Bain-Marie). Continuously stirring white chips until smooth and well mixed.
Dip Oreo (one at a time) using a fork, shaking off excess chocolate and place on cookie drying rack. Repeat steps for the remaining cookies needed.
Unwrap Reese’s cup and slice in half with butter knife. Place one half of Reese’s cup on top of the chocolate covered Oreo. Wider side down. As pictured below
PRO TIP: be sure to slice Reese’s cup, right side up instead of upside down or Reese’s cup may crumble.
Allow chocolate to dry for 10 minutes or until fully hardened. Draw “light strands” with black cookie icing on chocolate covered Oreo cookie and add sprinkles or m&m’s to resemble lights.
That’s it! Super easy, yummy, and adorable! Watch video below for visual
