Gone Fishing Oreo Pops!

Goldfish Oreo Pops!

These adorable Goldfish Oreo Pops are as tasty as they are cute!  A little salty, a little sweet.  Perfect, and just in time for Father’s Day!

We had fun announcing our new recipe cards to you this morning!!! Here’s another big Friday surprise!

A few weeks ago I told you all that I had big news to share~ well, today I’d like to announce the publication of my first cookbook!  Many of you have asked about if and when I would publish a cookbook, and last fall I was asked by Warner Press Publishing to write a cookbook devotional for kids.  This isn’t a traditional cookbook (sorry to those of you hoping for that!) but I am SO excited about this project!  I will include more about it at the end of this post.

This is one of the recipes featured in the cookbook.  It’s a fun hands-on project for kids to do with parents, grandparents or Sunday school teachers.  In the book, it includes a devotional about being “fishers of men” to do after the treats are made.

You know how I am about Oreo Pops. Addicted.

Goldfish Oreo pops!

These are really fun and the salty crackers are AMAZING with the sweet cookies!

Here’s the recipe: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • One package of Double Stuff Oreos
  • 2 (12 oz.) bags of Wiltons Candy Melts in light blue
  • 1 (12 oz.) bag of Wiltons Candy Melts in white (optional)
  • 24 Lollipop sticks
  • 24 goldfish crackers
  • ¼ c. brown sugar
  • Small pearl decorating sprinkles
  • Small treat bags and ribbon, if you want to package them up to give away.

DIRECTIONS: (Need a little visual help?  Click here.)

  • Carefully twist apart all Oreo cookies.  Do this slowly and gently- and expect that some will break. 
  • Melt about ½ cup white candy melts using a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until completely melted and smooth.

Note: I use white to match the white Oreo filling, if you aren’t particular about the inside of your Oreo being blue, you can just melt a little of the blue to use inside.

  • Use a lollipop stick to make an indentation in the white filling of an Oreo.
  • Dip the end of the stick into the candy melts, spread a little on top of the white filling and then press the stick into the indentation.
  • Place the top of the Oreo back on and allow the candy melts to harden and cement the cookie back together with the stick inside.
  • While you wait, melt your blue candy melts in the same manner as you melted the white, stirring until completely smooth.
  • Once the cookies are firmly hardened back together, pick one up (using the stick) and dip it into the bowl of blue candy melts. 
  • Spoon candy melts over the top and sides.
  • Gently lift the Oreo out of the candy melts, and tap the stick on the side of the bowl to allow the excess melts to drip off.
  • Slide the bottom of the Oreo against the edge of the bowl to remove excess candy melts.
  • Gently set the coated Oreo on clean parchment or wax paper.
  • Immediately, set a goldfish in the center of the cookie, sprinkle brown sugar at the bottom, and place little pearl “bubbles” over the goldfish.  Use my photos to help you with decorating.
  • Do this with each cookie and then allow them to harden completely.
  • Serve as-is, or package up for giving away by sliding each cookie into a little treat bag and tying with a ribbon.

My thoughts: I will forever be presenting you with new Oreo Pop ideas.  I love them.  These just make me smile. ~Enjoy!!!!!

Now, about this cookbook… :)

Life is Sweet!!!It is a little surreal to see my name as an author of a book- and SO exciting!  Two of my biggest passions are my love of God and my love of baking, and this cookbook combines them both!  I’m traveling to Atlanta in a week to attend the ICRS convention and debut the book.  It will be available to purchase on the 1st of July.

This is a book that brings truths from the Bible into the kitchen- it is such a perfect book for parents, grandparents, Sunday School teachers and other mentors to use with kids.  I’ve done several recipes with kids here on the Navajo Nation and we have had SO much fun.  I still hear kids talking about the lessons they learned during those times in the kitchen.  Even the boys had fun~ with recipes about ugly cookies and rabbit poop, there’s lots of laughter!

To pre-order the book on Amazon, just click here. To order on Warner Press, see a demo video, or learn how to promote this at your church, visit:

We are also opening a “Store” page here on the site, to make it easy for you to find the products that feature Easybaked recipes and photography.  Just check the tabs at the top of the site!

When I started this blog 3 years ago I would never have guessed how many opportunities would come from it.  I’m so thankful to each of you for being a part of this community, and so thankful to God for opening up opportunities I couldn’t have even imagined existed for me!

Now go make fish cookies!  {hugs} ~r
