Today I’m going to show you how to take some fudge covered Oreo cookies and spruce them up for the holidays. We’ll be decorating these cookies and making them super festive and great for sharing!

If you don’t like to bake or if you just don’t have the time to deal with the mess of it all this year, try out these DIY ornament cookies! They’re fun, festive, and of course a perfectly tasty treat.

For those of you who have kids in the house that are looking forward to Christmas cookies and helping out in the kitchen, this recipe is an excellent way to get them involved.

Everyone can decorate their own cookies, make batches to share, and you can be as creative as you want. There’s no shortage of fun sprinkles and edible glitters you can purchase in stores or online!

Here’s what you’ll need to make no bake Christmas cookies:

This recipe only uses a handful of ingredients, we’ll be starting out with white fudge covered Oreo cookies which means there’s no heating up the oven!

Finding these white fudge covered Oreo’s can be a bit tricky. You can make your own with a quick and simple chocolate covered Oreo cookie recipe that I will share below in case you can’t find these already coated ones!

You’ll also need some holiday themed sprinkles, mini m&m’s, white frosting, and mini Reese’s cups!

That’s it! A lot of these ingredients you can get with your next grocery order or maybe they’re already in your pantry just waiting to be made into a delicious and festive treat.

Kitchen essentials for tasty recipes like these:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of recipes and not just baking! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

How to make your own chocolate covered Oreo cookies:

You will need some Oreo cookies, use whatever kind you like and a bag of white chocolate melting wafers, about 16 ounces should work great.

First you need to melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Using the microwave heat them for 30 seconds a time and stir in between until they are fully melted and the white chocolate is smooth.

Next, use a fork to carefully submerge each Oreo into the chocolate. Tap off the excess liquid chocolate and then scrape along the edge of the bowl or use a knife to smooth out the bottom so it’s able to sit flat and have no excess dripping off the edges.

Finally, place the Oreos on a baking sheet that is lined with a sheet of parchment paper to keep the chocolate from sticking!

Cookies should sit until they are completely cooled and dry. They can be stored for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Tips for making these delicious no bake ornament cookies:

You actually don’t have to fudge coat the Oreo’s yourself if you can find them during the holiday season. Sometimes these white chocolate or white fudge Oreo’s are really easy to find and sometimes people can’t get them at all.

There’s no need to pay $100 on eBay or something like that. You can make your own with the simple coating process I’ve shared below. That said, if they’re in the stores during the holidays and you want to grab some to skip that first part of the process…go for it! They’ll work for the recipe and taste great without any extra work on your part.

If you are coating your own you can totally use whatever flavor of Oreo’s you like. Peppermint ones would be good during the holidays but you can also use chocolate Oreo’s, vanilla ones, or any other funky flavor you can come up with!

Make sure if you are chocolate coating them yourself you let them fully cool and set before you try and decorate them or it will get messy very quickly!

How to make DIY ornament cookies:

Take a chocolate covered Oreo and use frosting as glue, sprinkle & m&m the Oreo cookies to look like Christmas tree ornaments.

Smother the bottom of a mini Reese’s cup with frosting and stick it on the top of the Oreo as an ornament hook. 

Wow! Just two steps and you are done! Decorate, add the topper, and boom…these delicious Christmas ornaments are ready to eat. If you usually make cookie trays to gift, these are a must. They’re so cute and everyone loves them.
