Elmo Decorated Cookies | What’s Needed
How to Make Elmo Decorated Cookies
Make sure you line your counter with a piece of wax paper. This is super important! It will make your cookies not stick and cleanup will be super easy!
Open your mini Oreo and eat the half with the frosting, HA! Okay, you don’t have to eat that part, but I do! One for Mama, one for Elmo. Using a knife, cut the other half into two. This will be Elmo’s smile.
In a plastic container, melt your candy melts according to package instructions. (BIG Tip: I like to use a plastic container with a lid. That way I can keep any extras in the container and remelt later when I need it!) Shortcuts are always nice.
Let’s Get Started
Drop your Oreo cookie into the melted candy. Spoon some candy melt on top. Once coated, place on your wax paper. As you can see in the above picture, your coverage doesn’t have to be perfect. In fact, don’t worry at all. In do time, they will completely cover it in red sprinkles.
Add two candy eyes, a Tic Tac nose and half of the mini Oreo for his mouth.
Coat generously with red sprinkles. Make sure you allow the Oreos to harden and set for a few minutes. Shake any excess sprinkles off. Sometimes, you can reuse the sprinkles if they are not coated somewhat in melt chocolate. This is helpful if you can. You can go through a lot of sprinkles.
These no-bake cookies would be great for kids’ parties, especially a Sesame Street themed birthday or preschool class party! They are just so adorable. I am so pleased with how well the “faces” turned out.
