Easy Oreo Pops!

Chocolate-covered Oreos on a lollipop stick– perfect for any festive occasion!

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  • Carefully twist apart all of the Oreo cookies.
  • Using one of the pop sticks, make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie.
  • Melt the Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until completely melted and smooth.
  • Dip the end of one stick into the melted white chocolate, drizzle a little in the center of the white cookie filling and then gently press it into the indentation made.
  • Place the top of the cookie back on and allow white chocolate to harden (5 minutes or so), cementing the cookie back together with a stick inside.

Here’s some pictures (worth a thousand words I hear!):

That last picture is intended to make you feel better about breaking a few cookies in the process.  I believe the Oreo package contains 30 cookies and I made 23 pops….7 “failures”.  The hardest part is simply twisting the cookies apart without the top cracking.  Just be gentle :)

DIRECTIONS (continued):

  • Holding the stick, lower the entire Oreo into the bowl of melted white chocolate, spooning it over the top and sides to cover it completely.
  • Allow the excess chocolate to drain off and gently place covered Oreo on a piece of parchment paper to harden.  
  • Top with confetti sprinkles immediately before the chocolate hardens.
  • Eat and enjoy!!!


My thoughts: I love Oreos so much that it hurts….and I am on a diet…and there were SEVEN broken cookies.  Sigh.  I just closed my eyes and *smelled* them…who knew Oreos smelled so good??!!  These pops were wrapped up in cute bags and given as Valentines treats– they are MUCH easier to dip than cake pops, which made me happy.  I hope you have a fun occasion coming up and get and chance to try these!   -r

4-28-12:  Just made these for a couple of bridal showers and put them into “bouquets”- SO fun and really easy.  Just make the pops, tie them up in little treat bags with tags (free pdf for the “i do” ones I used : Oreo Pop Leaf Tags) and poke them into floral foam in a cute container.

  1. Love the colors! If it is an ore-inspired treat, it will definitely win the hearts of everyone in our household, even Dude, our most loved Golden Retriever loves Oreos. Thanks for sharing!

    • Dude is the coolest name for a dog ever. My dog would love me if I offered him an Oreo, but I still wonder if chocolate kills dogs….? Apparently not in Dude’s case- lol! Nice to “meet” you!

        A tiny bit of chocolate will not harm a dog, but frequent or large amounts can. My sister in laws Basset Hound ate a huge box of fudge they had just made for Christmas and it cost them a fortune at the Vet’s. She went into renal failure.

        • Oh my! Our Bassett Hound ate a whole batch of chocolate cupcakes (sneaky dog)- papers and all– and he was ok. I’m always really careful with my Casper and chocolate though.

    • Dude was my black lab/golden retriever mix’s name as well!!! I love that name, my brother and I thought it was funny to hear my mom say “Hey Dude” and “Here Dude!”…he went over the rainbow to doggie heaven a few years ago but seeing there is another “Dude” out there made me smile.

  5. I love these! I am going to make these into baby rattles for my daughters baby shower. All you would need to do is put a gum drop on the end of the stick and tie a ribbon on the stick. Too cute!

  7. I nuked six cookies at a time for 14 seconds, and the tops twisted off easily without breaking. Some of them did crack/break when I was making the indication in the cream. I just used the melted chocolate to piece them back together, so I was able to use the entire package.

    • Genius! I love it! I’m making these as shower favors in the next month and I will definitely use this tip— thank you!!!!

      Reply
    • I started with the microwave until my genius husband tried putting the sticks in without chocolate to see if that step could be skipped only to find out that you couldn’t because putting the stick in pops them open! Almost like shucking an oyster, worked perfectly for opening them up with ZERO broken!

    Wondering how long you think these will last if they are individually wrapped? I’d love to make these for my sister’s baby shower, but would like to make them in advance…a week or two too long?

  10. These are utterly adorable! My daughter loves anything rainbow coloured so the confetti would totally appeal to her (though I’m thinking butterfly sprinkles could be cute too). Will be giving these a try :)

  11. How many Oreo’s did it take to make the “bouquet’s” pictured above?

    Reply
  12. I am making about 50 of these for a volleyball retirement party. If I do them the night before do you think they would be okay to leave them out? I don’t want to stack them on top of each other, and I don’t have enough containers to store them all.

    Reply
    • Absolutely. I usually make these and let them sit out on parchment paper overnight (mainly because I’m too tired to package them up right away!) They will be fine sitting out.

  14. These look wonderful! I’ll be making them for party favors for my 2-year old’s birthday party this weekend. I bought some Barney (yes, Barney) edible cupcake toppers that I plan to cut down to size and put on the front to make “Barney pops.” Thanks for sharing this great idea.

  16. How many days before the activity I can make the oreos? Super cute the bouquet idea!!!

  17. I am thinking of doing these for my son’s wedding in July. I used milk chocolate chips but when I put them in the bag they seemed to melt. Is there a difference using the candy melts? Outdoor wedding and it has been over 100 degrees daily.

    Reply
    • To me, it seems like the candy melts are less likely to melt (they harden much more quickly and have a nice shine)– but with an outdoor wedding I would SO not make these– ANYTHING chocolate will melt at 100 degrees. If you have an indoor place to keep them and hand them out at the end maybe? Otherwise I’d go with something that won’t melt. Good luck– and congratulations!!!

  20. hello!i stumbled upon this recipe when i was looking for easier oreo pop recipes..and i found yours.. was there left over candy after you dipped all the oreos? and what happens if it cools and hardens in the bowl? first timer to make these i am! but i am pretty skilled in the kitchen and i am super excited i can’t believe how easy it is! and the cake pops, i noticed how easy you make it..

    Reply
    • Hi! Yes, there will be a little leftover melted candy. There really isn’t any way around this when you dip something. Toward the end I try to spoon candy over the top and make it go as far as possible as to not waste much. It might cool and harden in the bowl if you take awhile dipping. You would simply pop it back in the microwave for a few seconds until its nice and melted and smooth again. Be patient with yourself– I think it takes a few to get the technique down– but practice makes perfect! ;)

  21. i have the silliest question. First let me say I LOOOOVVEE this idea and can’t wait to try it. OK so the thing is…..After you dip the oreo, do you sprinkle both sides with the decoration before you lay it down or just one side? and if so, won’t it mess up? Sorry about the question i really don’t know how to phrase it lol. :)

    Reply
    • That’s not a silly question at all! The 1st time I made these I only sprinkled on one side…which was fine! The next times I sprinkled the parchment paper, placed the dipped cookie on top of the sprinkles and the sprinkled the top. It’s not perfect- but it works pretty well at getting sprinkles on both sides ;)

  22. I absolutely love this idea. My husband and I are renewing our vows next May and I am definitely going to make these for the dessert bar. Thanks!

  25. How long to you think they will stay fresh if wrapped? Thinking about the Church Bazaar, you think they would stay fresh for 3 or 4 weeks? Or can you freeze them?? Thanks

    Reply
    • Well, I’ve not frozen them before so I don’t know how that would work for you. I can’t think of any reason these wouldn’t keep for a few weeks at room temp though, especially if you are bagging them up. The candy melts are fine for a loooong time, and the cookies could maybe get stale, but since they are coated and bagged I really think 3-4 weeks would be fine. If you try it and find out will you please share so that others can use your tips?

  27. I find that my candy melts are much to thick when melted for dipping – is there a secret to making them more liquid?

    Reply
    • I looked this question up on the Wilton site and they warned that water (maybe still on a utensil or in the bowl?) or heating it too hot can cause it to thicken. They suggest the following: “If coating becomes too thick, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of hydrogenated solid vegetable shortening per 10 oz. of Candy Melts and 2 teaspoons per 12 oz. of Candy Melts.” Hope this helps!!!

    Not sure why everyone is raving that these are so easy to make, it was a nightmare. I followed the directions on how to split them apart and hold the stick in place, letting them sit for 5 minutes. When they were ready, I began dipping them in the melted chocolate and most of them slid right off the stick and fell off….. never again will I attempt these!!

    Reply
    • I’m so sorry they didn’t work out for you :( I always feel just terrible when a recipe or technique doesn’t work as planned for someone… It sounds like your chocolate just didn’t harden in those 5 minutes. For anyone else with this problem, try popping them in the fridge for a few minutes to harden that chocolate before dipping. I’m so sorry you were disappointed!!!

      Reply
  32. I feel like I have now made THOUSANDS of these silly things for Christmas – they make adorable santa hats. I do think the chocolate with shortening – I find that this makes a much smoother “dip” and since it is a bit thinner and I’m dipping twice (once in white and once in red) it makes them not so thick and sickly sweet. Also and I think this is the real trick….don’t use oreos. The generic oreos are much less easy to break and they have less crumbs so my white stayed white much longer.

    • Lol- thousands?!? I’m actually making some tonight- I bet the Santa hats are adorable! Thank you sooo much for sharing your tips- I’m sure they will help people along the way!! Merry Christmas!!!!

  35. Hye! can I substitute the candy melt with white cooking chocolate? Because we son’t have those candy melt here in Malaysia :)

    Reply
    • I’m not sure what white cooking chocolate is like in Malaysia, is it tempered? If not, you’d want to do that 1st if you want the pretty shiny finish on the candy. There are a lot of great resources on how to temper chocolate online. If you need some links let me know!!

      Reply
      • hi, im from Malaysia too and goin to do it for my son 1st birthday party this coming saturday.. wat I got is white chocolate compound (this is the name stated on the bag) im not sure is it the same like candy melts as the shape does looks like the one I saw from net. my concern now if I do it one day before the party and without wrapping it will the cookies stale. what if I using cling wrap will it be ok? need some advise here. thank you. :D

        Reply
        • You can just leave them out on the parchment or wax paper. They should be fine overnight! I hope your chocolate melts work!! It gets so tricky to try international recipes. Lots of experimenting.

          Reply
          • oh thank you Ruthanne, another question is it ok for me to use baking paper or aluminium foil? sorry for the silly question I have here :D many thanks :D.

            Reply
            • I’m not sure what baking paper is- sounds like parchment paper??, and I’m not sure if aluminum foil will work- the only thing you can do is just try it with one pop and see if it sticks. You just need a non-stick paper for them to harden on.

            • Hi Ruthanne, I have done it on the aluminium foil and it works well too.. thank you for the advise :D.

  36. I just made these for my daughters Luau birthday party in purple and green and they were a huge hit!

  37. These are adorable! The oreos are heavy, how did you get them to not tip over the container? Haveyou tird using any other containers? How did they work?

    Thanks!

    Reply
    • Use a container with a fairly wide base and use floral foam to hold them in place. I made Christmas pops and used a square ceramic pot with a square of foam inside. You can cover the foam with tissue paper first so that its not so visible. Good luck!

  42. So far, this has been an epic fail for me. The heat from the chocolate melts the double stuff & then the whole thing slides down the stick and drops into my hand.

    Reply
    • Oh- I’m so sad you’re having a hard time! I have made these so many times now and never had that happen, I can’t even think why it would. The only thought I have is that maybe once you have the stick set in the middle just pop them in the freezer before dipping? Maybe chilling them beforehand would help? I’ve had sticks fall out before but it was always because I got impatient and dipped them before they were fully hardened. I’ve never had them melt before though….sorry I’m not more help…I hope you find a technique that works for you!!

    Reply
    • Great question! My 1st few times, I didn’t. Then I started putting sprinkles on the parchment paper before I laid the coated oreo on top. That gets the back covered- then just sprinkle on the top and sides. :)

  48. I just made these, I also put mini oreo halfs as ears for my sons mickey ;mouse themed party this sunday and dipped them in chocolate. i used the candy melts and also used candy melt aid, which helps thin it for easier dipping. I also added some as I went when chocolate would start to harden and I reheated. they came out great! just thought about them going stale but i did cover them in the baggies and tied them.

  50. How does your batch of Oreo pops looks so good?
    I tried doing it once,Froze it and it had the vapor/droplets on them when i brought and left them out on the table.

    Or you don’t freeze them just wrap them once the choco hardens under room temperature?

    Reply
    • If it’s really warm in my house (I’m living in Arizona with no air conditioning right now- so it’s warm!) I will freeze them before I dip them. I think it helps to get that inside chocolate really hard. Once they are dipped I just let them sit out until they are hard enough to wrap. If you need them to harden up fast-if you are in a hurry to wrap them- you can freeze them for just 5-10 minutes. That’s enough to chill them but not freeze them hard. Hope this helps!!
