As most parents, I find myself busy all the flipping time. Each day seems to be groundhog day – eat, sleep, work, sort out child, blog, repeat. When it comes to baking and cooking, I like things that are quick and faff free – like this rocky road or these snowmen rice cakes. I’m not a good cook and I’m certainly no baker.
These ten minute no bake Christmas pudding Oreo cookies are exactly that. They are so easy to make and require minimal preparation and effort. They would make the perfect addition to any party. And for something that takes zero effort, they look pretty impressive!
So what do you need to make these cute cookies?
A packet of Oreos – I choose the double chocolate so I couldn’t see the white centre. You could use any though.
75grams of white chocolate.
Red ball sprinkles. We got a set in B&M that included larger red balls. These work well for the holly berries. Regular red icing rolled into small balls would work too, as would red Smarties or M.Ms
A green food icing pen. You can get these sets in any of the supermarkets down the baking aisle. Or holly sprinkles if you can find them.
Right, you have everything to hand, let’s get “cooking” : )
So first up melt your white chocolate in a bowl. You can melt it on the hob or in the microwave. I pop mine in for two minutes and stir half way through. Works a treat.
Next, take out your Oreos and make sure you something to put them on as you dip them into the chocolate.
Carefully dip each cookie into the white chocolate, covering about a third of the cookie. Like this.
Place them on your baking sheet/plate/chopping board and continue dipping each cookie.
Next take three red balls from your sprinkle pack. This was the faffiest bit to be honest – trying to pick out the red balls from the green and white. Tip – just buy a pack of red ones!
Once you’ve added berries to all your puddings, let them dry for an hour or so.
Once the white chocolate has set, use your green icing pen to draw on some holly. I just squiggled it around and then back on itself. I wasn’t really trying to make specific holly leaves :/
And there you go, cute Christmas Pudding Oreo Cookies. They are super cute and super easy to make : )
Have you been doing any festive baking? Do you enjoy baking? I’ve never been a huge baker but I really like playing around with food now that I have the little one to make things for : ) B was at nursery while I made these but they’d be quite nice to make with the little man I think…although “nice” when it comes to baking means spending a half hour telling my child not to eat everything in site.
If you like these cookies, be sure to take a look at some of the other things we get up to on the blog, like Star Wars BB8 and Harold Helicopter Sandwiches, as well as Reindeer Cereal Packs and Christmas pud rice cakes! And of course be sure to share and pin them for later!
