We all need easy projects during the busy holiday season and these reindeer Oreo pops are the perfect one. You’ll have so much fun making them!
- Meltable milk chocolate or dark chocolate
- Mega-Stuf Oreos – These provide a little more room in the filling to put the lollipop stick in.
- Candy eyeballs
- Red candy pearls – or try red M&Ms, red hots, sixlets, or cinnamon candies.
- Small pretzel twists
- Lollipop sticks
Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set it aside.
Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe safe bowl and melt it in 30-second intervals Stir between each interval until the melted chocolate is smooth.
Take a lollipop stick and dip one end of each lollipop stick into the chocolate. Insert the stick through the cream center of the cookie. Place the cookie on the prepared baking tray and repeat this process with the rest of the cookies.
Once all of the cookies have sticks, place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for five minutes so the chocolate can harden.
Once they have set, you are ready to coat them in chocolate. If your chocolate candy coating has hardened in the bowl, warm it up in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds.
Dip each Oreo in the chocolate coating it completely. Let the excess chocolate drip off and then place them back on the sheet pan. While the chocolate is wet, place two candy eyes and a red pearl candy on the top of the cookie to make the reindeer face. Repeat with the rest and then chill the cookie pops for 10 minutes or until the chocolate coating has hardened.
While they chill, make the antlers. Take a pretzel twist and carefully cut off pieces to create antlers. Don’t worry if they break, you may need to practice on a few until you get it done right. You will need enough pretzel pieces so each reindeer pop has two.
Rewarm the chocolate, if necessary, and then pour it into the sandwich bag. Snip a very small part of one corner off of the bag so you can pipe the chocolate. Don’t make the hole too big because you only want a small amount to come out.
Take a chilled cookie pop and turn it over so you can affix the antlers on the back. Pipe a small amount of chocolate to glue the pretzel antlers. Place them back in the fridge for 10 minutes to harden.
After this last chilling step, your reindeer Oreo cookies are ready to serve!
Cookie Dip: I prefer mega-stuf Oreos for this project because it’s easy to get the lollipop sticks inside. You can use double stuff Oreos, too, but they’re more narrow.
Chocolate Tip: Chocolate melts work best for this recipe because they melt really well and are easy to work with. You can use chocolate chips, but you might not get the nice even chocolate coating.
Melting Tip: If you don’t have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate on the stove using a double boiler.
Decorations Tip: The candy eyes, chocolate candy melts, red candy pearls, and lollipop sticks can be found at most craft stores or at the grocery store.
Storage Tip: Store them in an airtight container with wax paper between each layer. They will keep at room temperature for a week or so. If it’s warm, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator so the chocolate doesn’t soften.
Want to keep it really simple? The reindeer Oreo pops are adorable, but for a really simple project with small kiddos, just decorate the chocolate-dipped cookies with festive sprinkles!
I hope you add these reindeer Oreo cookie pops to your must-make list this year. They are so cute – almost too cute to eat! I know they’ll be a hit at your house like they are at ours.

Reindeer Oreo Pops
- 16 ounces package meltable milk or dark chocolate
- 13.2 ounces package of mega-stuf Oreos
- 40 Candy eyeballs
- 20 Red candy pearls
- 16 ounce package pretzel twists
- Lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Place the meltable chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals,
stirring between each interval until the chocolate has completely melted. (If you do not have meltable chocolate pieces, you can use chocolate chips and heat them over a double broiler until they’re melted and smooth).
- Dip the end of the lollipop stick into the chocolate and pierce the oreo through the “stuf” so that lies flat on the baking sheet. Once all oreos have been pierced with sticks, set the tray in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to let the chocolate harden.
- After 5 minutes, remove the tray from the refrigerator. (If you have to reheat your chocolate, reheat in the microwave for 15-30 seconds). Dip each Oreo pop into the chocolate, making sure to coat every part. Set on the baking tray.
- Place two candy eyes and a red pearl on the chocolate. Once all the oreos have faces, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to let the chocolate harden. Set the melting chocolate aside, as you will use this later.
- While the Oreo pops are setting in the refrigerator, place a few pretzel twists on a cutting board. With a straight edge knife, gently cut pieces of the twists to make the antlers. Many pieces will break, but you’ll only need enough pieces so that each reindeer has two.
- After ten minutes, pull the baking tray out of the refrigerator and set aside.
- If the melting chocolate has hardened, reheat it in the microwave in 15- 30 second increments. Once the chocolate has reheated, pour it into a piping bag or sandwich bag and cut the tip off of the bag. *see note in “tips” section.
- Turn the Oreo pop around to the back side and pipe a small amount of chocolate onto the back. Place the pretzel “antlers” into the chocolate and set the Oreo pop aside to harden once more. Once you have affixed all of the antlers to the Oreos, return the baking tray to the refrigerator and let set for another 10 minutes.
- Remove after 10 minutes and serve.
