How To Make Oreo Reindeer Cookies

Get the complete ingredients list and instructions from the recipe card below.

  1. Place the fudge-covered Oreos on a plate, or use a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  2. Break each pretzel in half to create two pieces to use as antlers.
  3. Press the pretzel pieces onto the cookies. The fudge-covered Oreos allowed me to just stick them on, but if you need extra hold, use a bit of melted chocolate.
  4. Next, stick on the candy eyes and a red nose to complete your reindeer.

Recipe Tips

  • To make it easy, set out all of the ingredients before you start assembling your Oreo reindeer cookies.
  • Create your own edible eyes with white candy dotted with some melted chocolate.
  • Use the microwave to melt the chocolate (if needed to stick on the candy).


  • Customize the Candy: use different types of candy to create your reindeer faces.
  • Make Reindeer Cookie Pops: insert cake pop sticks in the bottom of your Oreos to turn these into cute reindeer cookie pops!
  • Switch the Cookies: Use a different flavor of Oreo Cookies, like Gingerbread Oreos, or use homemade cookies.

Do chocolate covered Oreos need to be refrigerated?

No, you can store your Oreo Reindeer Cookies at room temperature inside an airtight container.

Can You Freeze Chocolate Covered Oreos?

Yes, you can make your Oreo Reindeer Cookies in advance and then freeze until needed. For best results, I recommend individually wrapping each of the Oreo reindeer with plastic wrap, then adding all of them in a large, freezer-safe bag ziptop bag before freezing.
