Easy Oreo Christmas Ornaments (Chocolate Covered Oreos)

In this post we’re going to learn how to make easy chocolate-covered Oreos decorated to look like Christmas ornaments!

Delicious Chocolate Covered Oreos

If you’ve been following me a while you know that I love my chocolate covered Oreos. I’ve made a lot of them over the past year and I have some fun molds to make them more seasonal. I have a lot of other Oreo-based sweet treats, as well, like my Oreo Dirt Cake and my infamous Mint Oreo Trifle. (Yum!)

This time, however, I wanted to focus on a really, really simple Oreo that you can decorate to look like a real Christmas ornament. You can add anything you like to dress these up, including:

  • M&Ms
  • Christmas sprinkles
  • Fondant
  • cinnamon candies
  • crushed peppermints
  • Sanding sugar

The possibilities are endless. But I want to show you the basics and then you can make these ornaments in any color combination or design you like.

Ingredients for Oreo Christmas Ornaments

This recipe requires a few things you might need to purchase ahead of time, like the little chocolate molds, (which are available on Amazon). You’ll also need oil-based food colorings, also available on Amazon. I used almond bark for my project but you can use melted chocolate of any kind. Candy melts are fine, too.

You’ll also want to have plenty of Oreos and almond bark on hand. You’ll find a full printable recipe card at the bottom of this post but here’s a quick peek at what you’ll need:

  • White almond bark
  • Vegetable (or coconut) oil
  • Oreos
  • Hershey’s Kisses (still in the wrappers)
  • Oreo molds
  • Oil based food coloring
  • Piping bags
  • Rubber bands

How to Make Christmas Oreo Ornaments

These are fun and quick and easy to make with the kids or grandkids.

Make sure your molds are clean and dry. Do not spray them with non-stick spray. You don’t need to prepare them in any way, other than to make sure they’re clean and completely dry.

It’s time to make your chocolate. I used about 2/3 of my almond bark to cover the Oreos and about 1/3 for the decorative colors. I probably had enough left over to cover another half dozen Oreos but didn’t take the time to do that.

Break the almond bark into squares. Add oil. (Make sure you use microwave safe bowls for this project.)

Place in microwave on high heat for 30-second increments. Mine took about 1 1/2 minutes, total. (If you don’t have a microwave you can use a double boiler for this process.)

Stir well.

Pour into piping bags and seal with rubber bands. (I use the technique you see in the photo below. I place the piping bag into a large cup and fold over the top before pouring in the liquid.)

Color your decorative chocolate with oil based food coloring and bag those, too.

Cover Your Christmas Oreos in Chocolate

It’s time to cover the Oreos!

Fill the mold halfway up with liquid almond bark.

Add Oreos and lightly tap down.

Add more melted white chocolate on top of it.

Tap your mold a few times against the countertop to get rid of any air bubbles.

Set in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until set.

Remove from the refrigerator and pop out onto waxed paper.

Decorate your Ornaments

Using alternate colors, decorate your ornaments any way you like. I added stripes of red and dots of green. I did a few with stripes of green and dots of red. I also zig-zagged a lot.

Other options for decorating Oreo Ornaments Include:

  • Christmas sprinkles, added into the mold before any chocolate is added (or held on with chocolate drizzle after the fact).
  • Rows of red and green M&Ms (a mini m&m option would work)
  • Sanding sugar on top of the drizzled chocolate.
  • Cinnamon candies held on with drizzled chocolate.

The possibilities for these easy Christmas cookies are endless!

You can also use other cookies besides Oreos. Another fun option is to use a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in place of each Oreo. You’ll notice that I used Hazelnut Oreos and Golden Oreos for my ornaments. That’s just what I happened to have on hand. Use what you like!

Add your Ornament Toppers to These Festive Treats

Using liquid chocolate (almond bark) add a Hershey’s Kiss to the top of each ornament.

To level the bottom of the ornament (so that it can stand on its own) I heated up a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper on it. I set the ornaments on the paper for a few seconds to level out the bottom.

What to Expect from These Treats

This is one of those Oreo recipes you’re going to love!

The sweet layer of almond bark is lucious and creamy, adding the perfect coating to the (already perfect) Oreos. The combination is delightful!

These are quick and easy for the busy holiday season! Perfect for your holiday party or cookie exchange.

No Almond Bark? No Problem!

Instead, use:

  • white chocolate chips
  • white candy melts
  • green candy melts
  • red candy melts

No Oreo Molds? No Problem!

Just fill shallow bowls with melted chocolate and use a fork to lift your Oreos in and out. (Dipped Oreo, anyone?)

How to Store these Oreo Ornaments

I refrigerate mine in an airtight container.

Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
