Can I freeze chocolate covered Oreos?

Yes, you can freeze chocolate covered Oreos.

Allow the chocolate covered Oreos to harden in the refrigerator (about 5 minutes). Place a piece of parchment paper down on the inside of an airtight container.

Layer with reindeer oreo cookies. Place a second piece of parchment paper on top of the cookies and lay another layer. Repeat until all the chocolate covered Oreos have been stored and place in the freezer.
