These oreo christmas cookies come together in just six simple steps.
Step 1: Melt your almond bark
In a microwavable bowl place half of the almond bark in it and microwave in 30 second
intervals. Stir almond bark and place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Do this until almond bark has completely melted.
Step 2: Melt your red and green candy melts
In a small microwavable bowl repeat process from above with the red and green candy melts. With candy melts I suggest adding 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, this will help make the candy melts smooth when melted.
Step 3: Line a baking sheet or your counter
Place a parchment sheet, or wax paper on counter or baking sheet to set dipped Oreo’s on.
Step 4: Dip the Oreos
Dip Oreo’s one by one into the melted chocolate or almond bark. Use tongs to grab the Oreo’s from the melted chocolate.
Step 5: Add the sprinkle
Sprinkle red and green sprinkles over dipped Oreo’s or even splatter a different color of
chocolate over the top to make them fun and festive.
Step 6: Allow the Oreos to cool
Let dipped Oreo’s rest for 1 hour before storing in a sealed container.
Hint: Feel free to leave off the sprinkles if you don’t like the added crunch to your cookies.
