Adorable Polar Bear Cookies Recipe

Raise your hand if you think these polar bear cookies are too cute to eat! I think they’re perfect for cookie exchanges and kid’s school parties… either for Christmas or a winter birthday celebration. Not only are they adorable, they’re super simple to make. Let’s talk a little bit about the no-bake process.

The cookie base is actually a double-stuffed Oreo cookie, but you can use the original one. There’s nothing that says you can’t use another type of sandwich cookie in its place. Each cookie is dipped in melted white chocolate. If you’ve never melted chocolate wafers before, it’s totally easy-peasy! You can even do it in your microwave.

Blue M&M noses are adhered to an extra dollop of the chocolate. Mr. Bear’s ears are made out of the chocolate as well. Small edible eyes complete these cookies. Allow the coating to completely harden, before serving.

I’m thinking you could use milk chocolate instead of the white, to make these during other times of the year. Maybe replace the blue M&M for a red one, for Valentine’s Day.

Here’s another possible option, to kick this treat up a notch. Before dipping them in the chocolate, spread peanut butter or Nutella on one or both sides of the cookie. YUM!

Polar bears are pretty cool… no pun intended! They don’t hibernate, like black and brown bears. Their fur isn’t really white. It consists of tiny hollow tubes that are filled with air. And, they’ve been known to swim as far as 60 miles, just to find food.

Did you know that International Polar Bear Day is on February 27th! Every year, this global event draws attention to the challenges polar bears face in a warming Arctic. If you home school your children, consider making these cookies as part of a polar bear unit study. There’s a lot more to learn about the largest species of bear, sometimes referred to as the “Ambassador of the Arctic.” Get ready… get set… make cookies. You know you want to!
