I love decorating for holidays. I have so much cute Mickey Valentine’s decorations, thanks to my awesome mother in law, and I am so in the Valentine’s Day spirit.
I love making special treats for the different holidays, especially when they’re easy and the tiny humans can help. These Easy Oreo Cookie Pops would also be a perfect treat for your preschooler to help assemble for his classmates!
I put together these easy (and incredibly tasty) Oreo Cookie Pops for the kids and I plan to have a little party for them on Valentine’s Day. Here is what you need to make them:
-Sprinkles and Sugars (Target had a lot of options in their Valentine’s section.)
-Lollipop Sticks (I bought them on amazon, my grocery store didn’t carry them)
-Chocolate for melting (I ended up using Wilton Candy Melts.)
-Microwave and glass bowl or double boiler
-Small treat bags and ribbon (I found them at the dollar store)
They took me about 45 minutes from start to finish. And that was with me burning the first batch of white chocolate. So you can probably make them in less time if you don’t mess up. Before you begin, gather all your supplies and line your cookie sheets with waxed paper (I was out of waxed paper and press and seal worked fine for me.)
Step 1: Twist the Oreos apart. The Double Stuff kind would have probably worked better, but regular ones were fine. This was actually the hardest part for me. I kept breaking cookies, but my little helper was happy to eat the broken ones. Also, make sure when you buy the Oreos, you tell your husband that you are using them for something. Or just hide them so he doesn’t eat them when he is up doing homework.
Step 2: Melt the chocolates, according to package directions. Like I said before, I burned the white chocolate morsels in my super weird microwave that doesn’t ever cook things evenly. (We really need a new one.) So then I remembered that I have a double boiler and that worked perfectly with the Wilton White Candy Melts. Just follow the directions on the package.
Step 3: Dip the sucker sticks in the chocolate and press the cookie halves together. A generous amount of chocolate works best. Make sure you press them all together before moving onto the next step.
Step 4: Dip the cookie sucker into the chocolate. I like the look of half the Oreo dipped, but you could totally do the whole thing if you want to. I made sure that some really got in between so that it sort of secured the Oreo on the sucker stick better.
Step 5: Sprinkle the colored sugar, or sprinkles onto dipped Oreos. It worked best for me to hold it over a bowl and rotate it while I sprinkled, that way it was on both sides and I could reuse the sugar that didn’t stick. Then I let my tiny helper generously decorate them once they were on the cookie sheet.
Step 6: Let cool. I left them for about an hour.
Step 7: Put in baggies. I had tiny treat baggies from the dollar store, and used some white ribbon. Of course I found my red bakers twine after I finished. But I think they look cute.
Step 8: Enjoy! They’re really good with pink milk. Or by themselves. Or when a coughing almost 4 year old wakes you up in the middle of the night and you can’t stopped thinking about the chocolate dipped oreo suckers in your kitchen.
Want more ideas for how to decorate them, or make them super delicious with peanut butter and milk chocolate (via real life dinner)? You could make some festive St. Patty’s day chocolate dipped Oreos with mint Oreos–my second favorite kind of Oreo (via Lolly Jane). How Does She made adorable Easter Oreo Cookie Suckers that look like bunnies and chicks if you want to get real cute.
