Today is Chandler’s turn 🙂 That sweet little girl had her heart set on these Oreo Pops. Even when Matti Jane changed her mind, Chandler was steadfast. I honestly think it was because she knew it would be one on one time with me. She is such a sweet little soul.
I, again, found this recipe through Pinterest, I found an easy-to-follow tutorial on the Timeout With Mom blog. While the steps were perfectly explained, my patience was certainly tested with those darn Oreos. I definitely had more broken Oreos than non-broken ones, hahaha.
What both Chandler and I loved about these was the fact that she could help me and have fun. Because I was having a hard time with the Oreos breaking while I was inserting the lollipop sticks, I stuck to that job myself. Chandler helped me with melting the chocolate and adding the sprinkles. Below is the supply list –
- Double Stuf Oreos (if there is triple stuf, I would suggest using those. I think more cream would help the cookie from breaking. That being said, I pressed the cookie (not too hard) back against the cream and hoped the hardened chocolate would keep it in place and it did!!!)
- Lollipop Sticks
- White Candy Melts
- Pink Candy Melts
- Parchment Paper
- Vegetable Oil (not pictured but used it to thin the chocolate so that it would go on the Oreos easier)
- Ribbon of choice
- Recollections Shimmer Paper
- Hole Punch
- Lay the Oreos out on the parchment paper over a baking sheet or cutting board
- Firmly hold an Oreo between your thumb and middle finger. Place your index finger over the top of your Oreo and push a lollipop stick up through the filling of the Oreo. Stop once you feel the creme push up against your finger. Most of the Oreos may (probably) will break…don’t get too frustrated. As long as you can gently press the cookie against the cream, the hardened chocolate will hold the Oreo together perfectly
- Melt Candy Melts as directed and stir in small amounts of vegetable oil to thin for adequate and easier coating
- Dip each Oreo Pop into the Candy Melts and coat.
- Scrape the bottom of the Oreo off on the side of your bowl and place on parchment paper to set.
- Design each pop with sprinkles.
- Allow your pops to fully set. We let ours sit overnight.
- Carefully lift each pop from the sheet using a spatula or knife
- Place in a treat bag, add a custom Valentine’s label with your choice of ribbon and pass on to classmates and friends to enjoy a sweet treat!!
See where the cookies broke?!? I gently pressed down and crossed my fingers it would work out in the end, haha. Thank goodness it did!!
One little girl had a bit of a heavy hand with the sprinkles, haha.
Tada!! You cannot tell that most of them had me sweating the night before. When I showed Chandler the final product, she was over the top EXCITED!!! Literally melted my heart!!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Love, Chandler Catherine
