Consider covering your work surface with parchment paper when you let the kids help, it’ll save you the messy clean up at the end! You can cover your entire table or work surface with it! Parchment paper is your best friend when it comes to baking with littles! Use it for them and then use those reusable silicone baking mats when baking! 😉

How to Make Santa Belt Oreos

For this fun holiday recipe, you will need the following supplies:

Ingredients Needed for Santa Belt Oreos

Melt your red candy melts with coconut oil slowly in a double boiler or microwave. (I prefer the microwave, less things to wash later!) Immediately start dipping your cookies into the melted candy using a fork, set them on wax or parchment paper.

Set the cookies aside to cool completely and harden so they can be decorated further.

Setting the Santa Belt Oreos

Once ready, use the black decorating frosting to draw on Santa’s belt.

Adding Santa's Belt on Candy Covered Oreos

Using the yellow fondant, cut into tiny squares or rectangles and place on the belt in the center as the belt’s hardware.

Adding Santa's Belt Buckle to Oreos

Dot two white frosting buttons onto each cookie above the belt. Let everything set and dry before serving! Aren’t these so adorable?
