In this post I'll share how to make and decorate white chocolate dipped holiday Oreos adorned with sprinkles, Rudolph-decorated chocolate covered Oreos, and how to give your Oreos a marbled chocolate design! Lots of fun Christmas Oreo recipes!
What are Christmas Oreos?
Winter Oreos, commonly known as holiday Oreos, are a limited-edition variety of Oreos with a red creme filling and festive winter decorations! They're usually available in grocery stores in November and December here in the U.S. and they're always a wonderful sweet treat! Perfect for this chocolate-covered holiday Oreos recipe!
What flavor are Christmas Oreos?
Red Christmas Oreos actually have the same flavor as the classic cookie, but they're somehow so much better! Then when you dip Christmas Oreo cookies in melted chocolate, they're the perfect treat for the holiday season!
Are Christmas Oreos vegan?
Winter Oreos are made without animal products, but according to the FAQ on the UK OREO website, there is a risk of cross-contamination with milk, so they're not technically suitable for vegans. You can see the full nutrition information in the recipe card below.
For this no-bake recipe you'll only need a few ingredients, and it's really up to your preference! I wanted to make both white Christmas Oreos and milk chocolate dipped Oreos, so I got both types of melting wafers. You can decide how you want to decorate your Winter Oreos and pick those ingredients accordingly!
- Oreos - pretty important to this Oreo Christmas cookies recipe! I definitely prefer the Christmas Oreos with red filling, but you can use classic Oreos, or substitute any other type of chocolate sandwich cookie! It might also be a great variation to use the new limited edition Snickerdoodle Oreos!
- white and milk chocolate candy melts - I used Ghirardelli melting wafers in white and milk chocolate because I love the rich chocolatey flavor, but Wilton Candy Melts, or almond bark candy coating would work too. You could even use melted white chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips, but you might need to add a bit more vegetable oil to achieve the best dipping texture.
- vegetable oil or coconut oil - this helps to thin out the melted candy so that it dips more easily and neatly.
- festive sprinkles - I'd recommend a 6-cell sprinkles container, or as many red and green sprinkles as you like!
- candy eyes, M&Ms, and mini pretzels - for the Rudolph decoration!
- treat bags and ribbons - if giving as holiday gifts!
- food coloring - optional, to add a different color to the white chocolate Oreos!
All you'll really need for this holiday Oreos recipe is a microwave and a microwave-safe bowl! And either parchment paper or a cooling rack to let the chocolate set. You could also use a double boiler if you prefer.
Tips and F.A.Q.
Check on it in the microwave every 15-20 seconds and stop cooking when it's mostly melted, stirring it the rest of the way. This will help keep that smooth, thin texture we want.
Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week, to keep them fresh for your holiday parties!
