The Santas and trees are Holiday Gummies that I found at Target in the $1 bin … yeah!  If you can’t find these exact candies … many stores have similar ones.  Any ready-made candy or icing decoration will work just fine.  Ready-made decorations attached to ready-made cookies … fast and easy … that’s a win in my book!

This is what I used …

Winter Oreo Santa & tree

  • Winter Oreos (or any Oreo)
  • Holiday Gummies (or any ready-made Christmas candy)
  • Reese’s Minis
  • White candy melts/candy coating (melted)
  • Course white sugar crystals
  • Powdered sugar
  1. This was my first time trying to make gummy candy stand up … it doesn’t stand too well … it wants to bend and wobble!  This is what worked for me … apply a little melted candy to the back of each gummy … put it in the fridge and leave it there until you are ready to mount it to the Oreo …                                                                                                              Give strength to gummies - SweetSimpleStuff.com  You might say that I gave Santa a backbone 😉
  2. Spoon a little melted candy on one side of a Oreo and sprinkle with some sugar crystals.  For the tree … place a Reese’s Mini upside-down and let white candy harden up, then use a little melted candy to attach tree, let harden up.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  For Santa … stand him in the melted candy and hold until attached.  Helpful hint:  to help Santa stand faster … place him in melted candy, lift him a little and place back.

You are done!  Easy peasy … right?
