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:
- Oreo cookies
- red candy melts
- coconut oil
- Black decorating frosting
- yellow fondant
- White decorating frosting
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.
Once ready, use the black decorating frosting to draw on Santa’s belt.
Using the yellow fondant, cut into tiny squares or rectangles and place on the belt in the center as the belt’s hardware.
Dot two white frosting buttons onto each cookie above the belt. Let everything set and dry before serving! Aren’t these so adorable?
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave candy melts and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until completely melted.
- With the help of a fork, dip each Oreo cookie into the candy and place gently on lined baking sheet.
- Let the cookies set for at least 15 minutes.
- Once everything is set and dry, pipe out one strip of black icing on the bottom portion of each cookie. This will act as Santa’s belt.
- Roll out your yellow fondant sphere and cut mini pieces.
- Place two on the center of each “belt.” This will act as the belt’s hardware.
- With the white frosting, pipe out two buttons on each cookie.
- Happy holidays!
