Baby Chick Oreo Pops

Posted on

These adorable baby chicks are made with Oreos- a perfect treat for Easter baskets!

Have you seen the chocolate covered sunflower seeds yet??? Oh my goodness. I saw them for the 1st time at Trader Joe’s, and I’ve been on the hunt for new colors ever since! My latest find was at JoAnn fabrics- right at the checkout!

I’ve been experimenting with them on a variety of Oreo pops (coming soon!) and these were a part of those experiments!

Aren’t they cute???

Here is how we made them: (printable recipe here)

(If you have never made Oreo Pops before, refer to our tutorial here.)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 24-30 Oreo Pops)

  • 1 package of Double Stuff Oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup of Wilton’s candy melts in white
  • 2 bags of Wilton’s candy melts in yellow
  • 1/4 cup of Wilton’s candy melts in dark chocolate
  • Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds in yellow and orange

DIRECTIONS:

(If you want to simplify these- don’t add a stick. Just dip the Oreos using a fork, and skip the following steps for inserting a stick!)

  • Gently twist apart all Oreos.
  • Melt white candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Dip one end of a lollipop stick into the white chocolate, spread a little on the top of the white Oreo filling and then press the stick flat into the center of the filling.
  • Place top of Oreo on, and set on a cookie sheet. When all Oreos have sticks inserted, pop these in the freezer for 15-20 minutes (until they are nice and firmly set).
  • Melt yellow candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Have parchment paper spread on your countertop and have your sunflower seeds ready. 
  • Dip an Oreo into the yellow melts, spooning melts over top and sides. Tap on edge of bowl to get rid of excess and slide bottom of Oreo along edge of bowl to remove drips.
  • Place on parchment paper and while melts are still soft, gently place seeds in place (use photos as a guide). I used a clean tweezers to place these and adjust them. You can add a few flower sprinkles too, if you want! Allow these to harden.
  • Melt chocolate candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Use a toothpick, wooden skewer, or food-grade paintbrush to add little eyes.

  • Allow these to harden completely. 
  • Wrap these up in little cello bags tied with Easter ribbon for a fun treat! These will keep (sealed up) for several weeks.

My thoughts: These are as fun to make as they are cute! Placing all those little seeds can take some time- and it might take you a couple tries to get the hang of it. I was pretty speedy by the end! 🙂 Make these with our fun Flower Oreo pops– or even just dip some in fun pastel colors and add Easter sprinkles. You’ll have loads of fun treats to share! Hope you get a chance to try these! Enjoy! ~r

Love Bug Oreo Pops!

love-bug-oreo-pops

Show a little love this Valentine’s Day with these Oreo Love Bugs!

Easy to make ahead and wrap up as gifts!

I just have to keep making Oreo Pops… there are so many possibilities and all of them are yummy and cute! I’ve pretty much failed at cake pops, but these? My favorite!

I made Lady Bugs Oreo Pops a couple of years ago, and when I was visiting Florida last month I was subjected to everyone’s horror stories about some awful little bug called a Love Bug. I guess people hate them down south, but when I heard “Love Bug” I immediately pictured these. Sweet little pink bugs with hearts and sprinkles!

Aren’t they fun? Cuteness overload….! These really aren’t hard to put together- especially if you’ve made Oreo Pops in the past. (If you haven’t ever made them, click here for a tutorial).

Here’s how we created these little love bugs! (printable recipe here)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 25-30 Oreo Pops)

  • 1 package of Oreo Double Stuff cookies
  • 1/2 bag of Wilton’s candy melts in white
  • 1 bag of Wilton’s candy melts in bright pink
  • 1/2 bag of Wilton’s candy melts in black
  • Heart-shaped sprinkles (I used these), pink/red jimmies or sugars
  • Candy eyes

DIRECTIONS: 

(If you want to simplify these- don’t add a stick. Just dip the Oreos using a fork, and skip the following steps for inserting a stick!)

  • Gently twist apart all Oreos.
  • Melt white candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Dip one end of a lollipop stick into the white chocolate, spread a little on the top of the white Oreo filling and then press the stick flat into the center of the filling.
  • Place top of Oreo on, and set on a cookie sheet. When all Oreos have sticks inserted, pop these in the freezer for 15-20 minutes (until they are nice and firmly set).
  • Melt pink candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Have parchment paper spread on your countertop and have your sprinkles ready. 
  • Dip an Oreo into the pink melts, spooning melts over top and sides. Tap on edge of bowl to get rid of excess and slide bottom of Oreo along edge of bowl to remove drips.
  • Place on parchment paper and while melts are still soft, sprinkle with hearts and sugar or jimmies, leaving these OFF the top 1/3 of the cookie. Allow these to harden.

  • Melt black candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until melted and smooth.
  • Spoon black melts over the top 1/4 of the cookie and then tap to remove excess and slide bottom across bowl edge to remove drips.
  • Set on parchment paper and place two eyes on top.
  • Once all heads and faces are done, spoon remaining black melts into a small zip-top bag. Clip a corner, and pipe a center line down the middle of the cookie as pictured. 
  • Allow Oreo pops to harden. Bag them up individually or store them in an air-tight container. 
  • Enjoy!!

My thoughts: One of the main reasons I love Oreo Pops is that you can make them ahead for events. I’m baking quite a few things for an orientation next week and these are DONE. Wrapped in cute bags, tied with cute ribbons and ready to go. Cross one thing off my list! I also made some of my personal favorite Valentine’s treats: Frog Prince Oreos. If you need hearts for the 14th, you have these Love Bugs. If you’ve kissed one too many Frogs this year… well. These other Oreos are for you:)

Frog Oreos!!

Happy Valentine’s Day !!!!

Oreo Pops~ a recipe revisited!

Posted on

RR HeaderDay #4 of our celebration of past recipes.  This week is going fast!  Today’s recipe is the 4th most viewed recipe on the Easybaked site.  It has had nearly 60,000 visits since it was published in February of 2012.  Can you guess what it is????

Oreo pops - a revisited recipe!These little treats are a favorite of mine.  They have been remade as mummies and snowmen already- the decorating possibilities are just endless!

These have been the star attraction at birthdays, showers, picnics, retirement parties, and even as favors at weddings.  They have been decorated in flowers and butterflies and school colors and even with Barney the Dinosaur!  The end of July they will be featured in Women’s World Magazine (so be on the look-out and grab a copy!).

For the Fourth of July holiday I simply dipped them in red white and blue and decorated with drizzles and sprinkles.  SO easy.  I tied these up in little favor bags and they are all set to travel to all of my upcoming holiday parties and picnics!  I just love things you can make ahead!
