How to Make Gingerbread Oreo Cookie Treats

5. Chill for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

6. Once chilled, remove the cookie molds from the refrigerator. Gently pop the Oreo cookies out of their molds and place on the lined baking sheet.

7. Using the white candy decorator pen, pipe white icing around the diameter of some of the cookies. You can mix it up by piping hair on some others (either fill the hair in completely or you can pipe curly-q lines) or just pipe short white lines around the diameter (like laces). Be creative!

8. For the eyes, you can use blue or white sprinkle candies that can be found at any craft store. As an alternative, smarties candies would work great too! Dab a small amount of icing on the back and place on each cookie.

9. For the nose, apply a small amount of icing to the back of red Christmas confetti or pink pearls and place on each cookie.

10. With the white candy pen, pipe a smile on each gingerbread face. Place a snowflake sprinkle or pink pearl on both corners of each smile.

11. For the girl gingerbread, pipe a bow at the top with red icing or you can apply icing to the back of a Wilton sugar bow.

12. For the boy gingerbread oreo treat, pipe a bow tie at the bottom with your red and blue icing pen.
