Oreo Jack-O-Lanterns

Aren’t they cute! They’re so yummy! And so easy to make! Here’s how to make them!


  • 14-16 Oreos
  • 1x 12 oz bag orange candy wafers
  • black sparkle gel


Melt the candy wafers. I put mine in a bowl and microwaved them for 2.5 minutes.

Dip the cookies into the melted candy, making sure they’re completely covered.

Place dipped cookies onto a plate or tray covered with a sheet of wax paper and refrigerate for 15 minutes to set.

Use the tube of black gel to draw faces onto the pumpkins.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes to set. The gel does set but never completely hardens.

Serve and enjoy!

My kids are big Oreo fans. They would love to help & eat these cookies. Do you have a favorite brand of candy wafers?
