Christmas is coming, and these hand-dipped reindeer Oreos are super easy and super fun to make with kids. I love making seasonal food. Reindeers tend to be a theme I have adopted for Christmas treats. Just check out my Reindeer Truffles, Reindeer Ice Cream Sandwiches and Nutter Butter Christmas treats. Food is just such a fun format for holiday celebration and design.

Materials Needed to Make Hand-Dipped Reindeer Oreos
How to Make Hand-Dipped Reindeer Oreos
- Melt semi-sweet chocolate in double boiler, stirring often until chocolate is smooth. Once melted, turn off the burner but keep the bowl over the steam. If you don’t have a double boiler you can always put a glass bowl over a normal pot. Essentially, you want the steam to be melting the chocolate. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals on 50% power, stirring in between cycles. I still like to keep my melted chocolate over steam to keep it from becoming chunky or hardening before you want it to.
- Dip Oreo in chocolate and coat with a spoon.
- Spoon coated Oreo out of chocolate and lay on parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
- You can smooth the chocolate on the top of the Oreo with a knife and wipe away excess chocolate around the base.
- Before chocolate begins to harden, add an M&M nose and candy eyeballs.
- Break candy canes so you just have the hook at the end. Eat the straight part. 🙂
- You’ll want to dip the end of your candy candy in chocolate to help reinforce the connection point, and then add the candy canes to the reindeer Oreos.
- These will harden at room temperature, but you can also stick them in the refrigerator. You’re done! Enjoy!
I believe your kids and guests will adore these Hand-Dipped Reindeer Oreos. Definitely get your kids involved in the process. You are creating memories that way!
