Jeepers Creepers Oreo Pops!

Posted on

Scary Oreo popsThese scared little pretzel monster Oreo pops are not only adorable but a perfect salty and sweet combination!

Because I love desserts and I obviously blog about them all the time, my friends are often pointing out cute ideas they find online. That was the case with these cute little pretzel monsters. A friend found them in Family Fun Magazine and posted a picture on my Facebook wall. As soon as I saw them I knew they belonged on an Oreo pop!  Aren’t they so cute?!?

Monter Oreo PopsThey are also very easy, and a great make-ahead treat for fall parties!

Here’s how to create them for yourself: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS: (makes about 26-30 pops)

  • One box of Oreo Double Stuff cookies
  • 30 lollipop sticks
  • 1 bag of Wilton’s Candy Melts in black or purple (or both, if you want both colors!)
  • Small amounts of Wilton’s Candy Melts in other halloween colors (for the “eyes”)
  • Round sprinkles
  • 30 Flipz white chocolate covered pretzels

DIRECTIONS: (Need a visual for making Oreo pops?  Click here.)

  • Make pretzel monsters first by laying all 30 Flipz out on a piece of parchment paper.
  • Melt a small amount (maybe 1/3 cup) of any Candy Melt color for the eyes, and spoon into a small zip top bag.
  • Zip bag closed and clip a corner off.  Pipe color into top two holes of pretzel and gently set a sprinkle “iris” in place.
  • Repeat with other colors and allow eyes to harden completely.
  • For Oreo pops, carefully twist apart all of the Oreo cookies
  • Using one of the lollipop sticks, make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie.
  • Melt the about 1/4 of the black or purple Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until completely melted and smooth.
  • Dip the end of one stick into the melted candy, drizzle a little in the center of the cookie filling and then gently press it into the indentation made.
  • Place the top of the cookie back on and allow candy melts to harden (20 minutes or so), cementing the cookie back together with a stick inside. (Freeze for 5-10 minutes to speed this process up)
  • Melt remaining black or purple Candy Melts in the same manner.
  • Holding the stick, lower the entire Oreo into the bowl of melted Candy Melt, spooning it over the top and sides to cover it completely.
  • Allow the excess to drain off and gently place covered Oreo on a piece of parchment paper.
  • Immediately place a pretzel monster on top and allow the Oreo to harden completely.

Alien Oreo Pops!

My thoughts: These are cute and yum yum yummy!  I like the cute little surprised looks on the pretzel monsters, and they taste GREAT! Wrap these up in cello bags with cute ribbons and you have a fun party treat to share!  Enjoy!  ~r

Butterscotch Ice cream towers!!!!

 These beautiful, stacked desserts have layers of ice cream sandwich and a creamy butterscotch filling.  Topped with melted chocolate, they make a fun and elegant summer dessert!

Butterscotch Ice cream towers!

I’ve been craving ice cream sandwiches.  These little desserts were a combination of that craving and an extra box of butterscotch pudding in my cupboard.  I love how they turned out!  They require some hands-on time and an overnight in the freezer, so they aren’t a last minute idea- but I think the extra time is worth it!!  The end result is pretty and SO yummy!  Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS: (printable recipe here)

  • One box of 12 ice cream sandwiches
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package of Jell-O Instant Butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups of cold milk
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip topping
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons of butter

DIRECTIONS:

  • Make butterscotch filling first, and freeze overnight
  • In a large bowl, beat together milk and pudding mix on high for 3 to 4 minutes until thick.
  • Fold in 1/2 of the container of Cool Whip topping
  • Put parchment paper in a small (I used a 9×9 square) pan, and spread pudding mixture evenly into container.
  • Freeze overnight.
  • To assemble, use a fluted square (I used a 2″ inch square) cookie cutter to cut ice cream sandwiches.  I got 2 squares from each sandwich. Return to freezer after cutting.

  • Remove pudding mixture from freezer, lift out of pan using edges of parchment paper, and lay on a clean counter.
  • Cut squares using the same cookie cutter (dip in warm water between cuts, if it becomes sticky), return to freezer as you cut them.
  • Assemble no more than one or 2 hours before serving, and keep frozen.
  • Melt chocolate chips and butter together in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  • Place an ice cream sandwich square on a plate, top with butterscotch filling square, top with a second ice cream sandwich square.
  • Drizzle with melted chocolate (and I added a few butterscotch chips).
  • Return to freezer and keep frozen until serving.

 

Butterscotch Ice Cream Towers!!

My thoughts:  These are the most spectacular dessert to serve (you should have heard the oohhh’s and ahhh’s!), and the most awkward dessert to eat.  The kids figured out that you need to just pick these up and eat them with your fingers!  I allowed mine to melt just a touch, and then it was perfect with a fork!  The flavors are so yummy! Butterscotch and chocolate?  Yes, please!!!!  Enjoy!  ~r
