Chocolate Covered Oreo Snowflake Cookies
Today, we’re sharing how to make chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies!
Have you made any Christmas cookies yet?
When it comes to baking for the holiday season, I’m definitely all in.
We used to bake all kinds of cakes and cookies with my Granny.
Every Christmas she would send us home with a handmade ornament and box of sweets containing everything from Martha Washington Balls to divinity to Russian Tea to fruitcake.
At the time, I didn’t realize how much work went into making sure we were feasting like sugarplum fairies.
Now that I’m older though, I’ve yet to turn on the stand mixer in the kitchen without thinking of her daily gestures of love.
I miss her dearly and I know there are so many of you missing loved ones right now too.
In an effort to keep her traditions alive during the holiday season, I make it a point to carve out some time to spend in the kitchen carefully measuring, adding a pinch of this and that, and trying out new recipes.
Recently, I found a snowflake silicone cakelet mold on sale at Michaels.
I thought it would be fun to try and make chocolate covered Oreos to kick off a Christmas cookie box.
These cookies were relatively easy to make but I learned a few things along the way to help make your experience a little easier than mine ?
Here’s a look at how to make chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies…
Chocolate Covered Oreo Snowflake Cookie Supplies:
- Snowflake Cookie or Cakelet Mold
- Melting Wafers (we used dark chocolate, but you can use whatever flavor you like best)
- Oreo Cookies (we used peanut butter pie flavored Oreos, but they make a variety of flavors now)
- Embellishments, optional
- Icing, optional (this will help make your embellishments stick)
- Toothpicks, optional (an easy tool if you use embellishments)
- Parchment or wax paper
- Small cookie sheet
- Tarp, optional (to protect your work surface)
Chocolate Covered Oreo Snowflake Cookie Steps:
Gather your supplies and place a tarp over your work area if desired.
Make sure your snowflake mold is clean and completely dry. This is such an important step (I’ll show you why in a bit) so don’t skip it – it makes a huge difference!
Place the snowflake mold on top of a small cookie sheet.
Using caution and care, melt the chocolate wafers as per the instructions on the back of the bag.
We put ours in the microwave for 30 seconds initially, then in 15-second additional intervals until the chocolate wafers were melted completely.
Again, using caution and care as chocolate will be hot, spoon melted chocolate into the cavities of your snowflake mold.
Make sure the entire surface is covered with chocolate. Our base layer was about a third of the entire mold.
Once your chocolate base layer is in place, add your Oreo, and lightly press down into the snowflake mold.
These molds were so deep, I probably could have used 2 cookies!
Then fill the remaining third of each snowflake mold cavity with melted chocolate covering the Oreo cookie.
Place cookies in the refrigerator for approximately 15 minutes or until chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies have fully set.
Carefully, remove the chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies from the silicone snowflake molds and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
As you can see the cavity molds weren’t as dry as I thought they were because the water droplets completely changed the color of the chocolate in some spots.
While it didn’t change the flavor of the chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies, I would have preferred they were the same color throughout.
The crevices inside the snowflake design were a bit tedious to work with, to be honest.
I was able to add a tiny amount of white frosting to the tip of a toothpick to help secure the candy pearl beads to the cookie though.
They definitely add a pretty layer to the chocolate covered Oreo snowflake cookies, but just a heads up, this step is time-consuming if you’re in the midst of a busy season.
Speaking of which, if you’re really short on time, most grocery stores and local bakeries sell chocolate covered Oreos.
Just pick up a batch and add a snowflake embellishment and you’re good to go ?
As with the other projects we’ve shared this holiday season, the melting wafers and Oreo cookie variety can be completely customized to whatever your family likes best.
Bonus, this snowflake mold can be used throughout the winter, not just at Christmas. I can’t wait to try a cake mix with these molds too!
I know the next few weeks are going to get hectic, but I hope we can all find a way to continue to carry on the traditions we hold most dear.
Even if it’s a scaled-back version, it’s still an important rite of passage during the holidays.

Now this is one incredibly decadent treat! I love covered Oreo treats, so these snowflakes are calling my name!
LOL I saw the beautiful dark snowflake and thought it was soap. I use that mold to make my winter goat milk soap, but mine is much lighter and I was super excited to read how you achieved that luxurious chocolate look!
Your clever chocolate covered oreo snowflake cookies are absolutely gorgeous. These are by far my favorite new cookie discovery this year!
Thank you, Heidi! The cakelet pans and ingredients were super easy to work with so I can’t wait to try lots of other flavors now! Hugs, CoCo
These snowflake cookies are stunning, such a easy recipe as well!
Thanks so much, Josiah, I really appreciate it!
These look delish – I have made similar cookies with just a round mold (not as pretty as your snowflake mold) and i used white chocolate buttons. who doesn’t like an oreo? Right? Enjoy keeping your traditions going!!
That is so exciting to hear, Patti! I’m always interested in what kind of flavors and pans people are using. My family definitely has a sweet tooth so I can’t wait to try the white chocolate version now as well. Thanks so much for passing it along. I’m sure it’s going to be a big hit 🙂 Hope your day has been a fun one, CoCo
Holy Smokes! One, I’ve never even heard those Oreo’s and two, I would have never thought to do this! Plus, I’ve never heard of a cakelet pan! Maybe I’ve been living under a rock?! So going to do this. Off to find a mold like that! Yep, I’m a copy-catter. Can’t help it. 😉
So glad you like these, Cindy! They were crazy easy to make and they’re delicious too. I never let myself go down the cookie aisle at the grocery because bad things happen when they fly into my cart ha ha. That said, I was shocked at all the different kinds of Oreos they have available now. I mean, when they came out with double stuffed Oreos when I was a kid we thought it was EPIC 🙂 Big hugs, CoCo
These all look so good CoCo! Pinned so I can try them next year when I’m not trying to lose weight!
Speak to my heart, Kim, I totally get it. It’s so hard to reign my sweet tooth in this time of year. I’m proud of you for sticking to your healthy eating plan. I know it’s not easy but it’s definitely worth it. Hugs, CoCo
Wow your snowflake cookies look so delicious and fun to make too! I’m excited to feature your posts this week at the Tuesday Turn About Link Party!
Thank you for sharing CoCo!
You are so sweet, Michelle, thank you so much! I really appreciate it. These 2 ingredient cookies have been one of the easiest ideas we’ve put together this entire season. I’m all about the cakelet pans now 🙂 Big hugs and thank yous, CoCo
So easy and super cute! Great idea!
Oh my gosh, Sarah, these are super easy! We definitely need that this year 🙂 Thanks so much for your sweet words, CoCo
Just WOW. Gorgeous cookies! You have the touch:) So nice you have memories of your grandmother. Happy Holidays to you and your family! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen
Thanks so much, Kathleen, I really appreciate it. She was definitely a special lady so I’m happy to honor her any time. Big hugs, CoCo
These are so pretty! What a fun idea, and peanut butter oreos? I don’t think my husband has heard of those! I bet he would love them! Thank you for sharing with us at Embracing Home and Family! Hope your Christmas season continues to be jolly!
Thank you so much, Jenn! I was SHOCKED at all the different flavors of Oreos. I thought maybe one or two new ones or something seasonal but it was crazy to see how much they had expanded their line from when I was a kid 🙂 If you husband likes peanut butter and chocolate, he’ll like these too. Sending you hugs for a warm holiday season, CoCo
Oh, these sound so good and look so perfect for the holidays. I’ll share a link on Sunday.
That’s so sweet of you, Rachel, thanks so much! Hugs, CoCo
