Oreos are classic cookies and over the years have become a staple in many households. They are perfect for the holiday season as they are perfect in a variety of sweet treats and recipes.

From no bake truffles, decorated melted chocolate dipped Oreos, to crushed Oreo crumbs in crusts, and beyond, these cookies are definitely going to be a part of the Christmas season!

This list of recipes goes beyond just the addition of festive sprinkles. Holiday flavors such as peppermint or snickerdoodles, Golden Oreos or mint flavored, snowmen Oreo balls, reindeer, and more. Check these Christmas Oreo recipes out and let me know your favorite!

As far as Christmas and holiday Oreo recipes go, the two most popular uses for Oreos in recipes are Oreo balls, or truffles as well as melted chocolate dipped and decorated Oreos.

You will find many recipes to make the sandwich cookies into snow globes, reindeer, or decorated like ornaments. I was amazed by how many options were out there!

No bake truffles (also called Christmas Oreo balls) were the other popular option. These combine finely ground Oreos mixed with cream cheese and then dipped in candy coating or melted white or dark chocolate. Lots of options for cute themed truffles for Christmas as well!

Aside from the big winners, adding Oreo cookies to baked goods like cookies, cakes and brownies were easy to find. Crushed Oreos in holiday bark recipes were Christmas treats to make.

While these chocolate sandwich cookies have been around for a long time, did you know any of these interesting facts?

  • Oreos were created in 1912–they are well over 100 years old! The originally classic flavor and a lemon meringue flavor were both made, but the lemon was eventually discontinued.
  • Over 500 billion Oreos have been sold in that time!
  • There have been over 80 different flavor varieties over the years.
  • They are actually vegan contrary to the “cream” filled center.
  • March 6 is National Oreo Day in case you want to celebrate!

Pies and Cheesecakes

Crushed Oreos pair perfectly with these classic recipes. Add red and green sprinkles or use holiday themed Oreos for more holiday colors!
