Cake pops are one of my favorite dessert trends. Another one of my favorite dessert trends is Cake Pops’ cousin, OREO pops. I am going to show you just how to make OREO cookie pops, it’s unbelievably easy. There are a few steps involved, but they are all easy steps.
The cool thing about chocolate dipped OREO dessert recipes is that they can be easily adapted to fit holiday colors and birthday party themes. We had a Disney FROZEN party and I decided that white chocolate dipped OREOS on a stick would be perfect. The OREO pops could look a lot like Elsa’s snow wand. I added a few drops of Neon food coloring to the white chocolate to create other FROZEN-inspired colors like the blues and purples.
If you don’t want to serve your OREO Pops at the party, they are also fun party favors. Simply wrap them in a cellophane bag and they are ready to hand out.
How to Make OREO Pops on a Stick
What You’ll Need:
*Wilton cake pop sticks
*White Chocolate Chips (about 16 ounces)
*Crisco shortening (a small amount added to melted chocolate)
*OREO cookies (I used the MEGA stuffed OREOs)
*NEON food coloring (I used McCormick’s Purple and Blue)
*Colored Sprinkles (White, Purple, Blue)
*optional: ribbon (for tying bows around each cake pop stick)
How To Make OREO Pops Recipe:
Although you can use any variety of OREO cookies, I think it is easiest to use the MEGA Stuffed OREOs. The Double Stuffed OREOs would probably be easy to use, too. The reason more OREO cookie filling is better is because you will need to insert a lollipop/cake pop stick into it. The Original variety of OREOs may require you to actually open up the cookie, put the stick in and put the cookie back together. You do not have to take apart the MEGA Stuffed OREOs to put the stick inside.
Step One: Place one lollipop/cake pop stick inside each OREO cookie. The stick should be placed in the center of each cookie, and not be placed so high that you can see the tip of the stick poking out at the top.
Step Two: Melt chocolate chips. I used the microwave to melt mine. I placed about two cups of white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and turned in on 1 minute. Then stirred. Then put back in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until chips were completely melted. (It only takes a couple of minutes to do this.) Tip: Dissolve about a teaspoon of Crisco shortening into the melted chocolate to help make it smooth and shiny. I highly recommend doing this because it makes dipping so much easier for pretty pops.
If you are making white chocolate dipped OREOs, go ahead to Step Three. If you are adding food coloring to your melted chocolate, now is the time to stir it in. Add just one or 2 drops at a time, stirring, until color reaches the desired shade.
Step Three: This part is easy but can get a little messy. That explains why there’s no photos of this part – my hands were covered in chocolate! Carefully pick up an OREO cookie with the stick inside and dip into the chocolate. I used a spoon to help me get the cookie completely covered, especially around the stick area. The chocolate will help keep the OREO cookie on the stick (once it hardens). Carefully place the OREO pop onto a flat surface covered with parchment paper to dry. I put my pops on a baking sheet with silicone baking liners.
Step Four: Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle the OREO pop with chosen color of sprinkles.
Step Five: Allow OREO pops to cool and harden. This doesn’t take that long – less than an hour at my house. Carefully remove the chocolate dipped OREO pops from the baking sheet. They are ready to serve! Optional: Tie a bow made from ribbon on the stick, about an inch below the OREO cookie.
