Norm of the North Polar Bear Oreo Cookies
We are avid movie-goers in this family. We love love love to see the latest and greatest movies as they come out. My entire family loves going to the movie theater. This January, my kids are really looking forward to seeing Norm of the North.
We are partnering with Norm of the North and to celebrate, we made these adorable Polar Bear OREO Cookies.
About Norm of the North
With help from his furry sidekicks, a polar bear travels to New York to stop a maniacal developer from building luxury condominiums in the Arctic.
A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do… he heads to New York City to stop it. With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.
This PG rated family film opens in theaters on January 15th and you can check out the Norm of the North movie trailer here.
Norm of the North Polar Bear OREO Cookies
- 1 package of Oreo Cookies
- 1 package of Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers
- 1 container of small candy eyes
- Black royal icing
- 2 egg whites
- 1 C powder sugar
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- Black gel food coloring
- Using a double boiler melt the Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers.
- Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
- Place one Oreo cookie at a time in the double boiler working with a fork to spread the white chocolate over it and then to flip it over to the other side of the cookie. After both sides of the Oreo have been coated in the white chocolate put the fork under one side of the cookie lifting it out of the double boiler. Place it on the wax paper lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all of your cookies have been coated in the white chocolate.
- While the white chocolate covered Oreo's chocolate is still warm position the white chocolate wafer in the middle of the cookie for the belly.
- Now add the two small candy eyes as pictured before the white chocolate dries.
- The white chocolate covering the Oreo should still be warm enough to act as the “glue” to hold the belly, and eyes in position.
- Cut one white chocolate wafer in half. Using the white chocolate already on the cookie for glue attach each half to the upper sides of the Oreo cookie for the ears. (If the white chocolate will not hold the “ears” then heat the white chocolate again.)
- Refer to the picture of the Polar Bear Oreo Cookie for positioning.
- Set to the side to allow the white chocolate to dry.
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes. (except your food coloring)
- If icing is not stiff enough add 1/4 C powder sugar.
- In the bowl, add several drops of black gel food coloring. Stir to mix well.
Spoon the icing into a piping bag with a #2 tip. Twist the open end of the bag to push the icing to the tip.
Polar Bear Oreo Cookies Directions:
- Refer again to the pictures.
- Using the black icing in the piping bag to outline and fill in the nose. The shape of the nose is more of an egg shape laying on its side.
- With the same piping bag draw a half circle for the mouth.
- Set aside for 2 hours to allow the cookie to completely dry.
