We LOVE making Christmas candy! Making Christmas candy has always been a tradition at my house while I was growing up. My mom, myself and my sister made Christmas candy every year. We all had a favorite candy and we would get to make these every year. In the past, we would make the usual Christmas candy, for example, Martha Washington, Divinity and fudge.
My dad loved chocolate fudge with whole pecans pressed into the top of the fudge. I can remember the old, cream colored, oval dish that my mom ALWAYS poured the fudge into. We knew thru out the year that when she pulled that old dish out that she was going to make some fudge. My favorite was the divinity, which is hard to make. Sometimes, it would set up and sometimes it did not set up, LOL. My sister’s favorite Christmas candy was either the Martha Washington candy, but she also loved popcorn balls too.
When my kids began to be old enough to want to help I found new Christmas candies to make like;
- Santa hat bugels, which are bugel potato chips dipped in white almond bark with a M&M on each one.
- Dipped pretzels which are pretzels dipped in white or dark almond bark. Then, sprinkled with Christmas sprinkles.
- Peanut butter/ritz crackers dipped in almond bark. Then, Christmas sprinkles added to the top.
- Caramel Popcorn drizzled with white and dark almond bark
- Chocolate walnut fudge (without nuts for the kiddos, lol)
- White chocolate pecan fudge (without nuts for the kiddos)
- Peppermint bark which is a layer of dark almond bark (freeze), add a layer of white almond bark and then add crushed peppermint candies and freeze. After the almond bark has set up break it up into small pieces.
- However, this last Christmas my husband wanted me to dip Oreos in almond bark. Which I thought was a great idea and so here we are with the recipe of Holiday Dipped Oreos, actually by Gerald, LOL. The only problem with these cookies is that once dipped they look just like the peanut butter/ritz crackers that are also dipped in almond bark. So, I’ll have to figure out a way to tell the 2 types of desserts apart from each other.

- Oreo cookies
- Almond bark
- Holiday sprinkles
This Christmas dessert is so yummy! I’m not sure if it is a candy or a cookie, lol. But, either one, they are delicious. I dipped mine in the white almond bark, because the white almond bark is my favorite. However, I believe that the dark or chocolate almond bark would be totally delicious too. Plus, the sprinkles can be changed to match any holiday, party or event that you have planned. For example, if you are having a 4th of July party, I would use red, white and blue holiday sprinkles. Maybe for Thanksgiving I would add Thanksgiving sprinkles and so y’all get the idea that these candies/cookies can be versatile.
- Place almond bark into a glass microwavable bowl. A glass bowl works better because it gets warm/hot and helps to melt the almond bark and keep it melted.
- Microwave for one minute at a time and stir with each minute until almond bark is melted.
3. Place one Oreo into the almond bark at a time and coat the Oreo using a fork. I tap the edge of the bowl with my fork to help the excess almond bark drip off the cookie
4. Place the dipped Oreo onto wax paper or foil.
5. Sprinkle each dipped Oreo before the almond bark is dry. Once the almond bark is dry the sprinkles will not stick to the cookie, so add the sprinkles after you have dipped about 4-6 cookies.
- Make these for different Holidays,events or parties – just change the sprinkles to match your event. For example, 4th of July – add red, white and blue sprinkles. For a birthday party add your favorite color of sprinkles.
- These little desserts make excellent gifts for any occasion. Place a few into a treat bag with a cute ribbon and you are set.
- These Holiday dipped Oreos can be frozen up to 3 months. And, these do freeze perfectly. My husband ate on Christmas candy for 1 year, however I do not recommend this, but he was eating last year’s Christmas candy and I threw it in the trash, because I was making some more, LOLOL. He said that it wasn’t freezer burned, however I’m sure that 3 months would be the recommended length for any dessert in the freezer.
- Either white or dark almond bark can coat the Oreo cookies
- Choose a different flavor of Oreo cookie. So, I researched this and was going to add some flavors, however there have been 85 different Oreo cookies. So, I’ll only name a few, LOL.
- Oreo Mint Flavored
- Oreo Java chip
- Oreo double stuffed winter
- Oreo birthday cake
- Oreo caramel coconut
- Oreo peanut butter
- Oreo golden sandwich
- Choose a different cookie, maybe your favorite cookie. Any type of cookie could be used, for example; Nutter butters, chocolate chip, pecan sandies, peanut butter, oatmeal, shortbread, cake cookies, vanilla wafers, oatmeal raisin cookies.
