Recipe: Oreo Cat Cookies

What You’ll Need:

  • Oreos (I used the chocolate crème kind)
  • Frosting Green and/or yellow M&Ms
  • Circle-shaped sprinkles (you can also use heart-shaped sprinkles and turn them upside-down)
  • Chocolate chips
  • Black edible marker


  1. Frost the back of the M&Ms, and attach them to the cookie for the cat’s eyes.
  2. Use a toothpick dipped in frosting to attach the sprinkle to the cookie for the nose.
  3. Dip the flat part of the chocolate chips in the frosting, and attach them to the top of the cookie for the ears.
  4. With the black edible marker, draw pupils on the M&M eyes.
