Oreo Pops

27 Aug


We were at Thomas’ cousin’s birthday party today. I made these Oreo Pops to take along. I saw them online a while ago and have been wanting to make them for a while. I think they were a bigger hit with the adults than the kids but the overall impression was a resounding thumbs up. We will definitely be making these again!

They are a bit fiddly but once you know the trick to them they really are quite easy to make. Don’t worry, I’m happy to share my secrets with you :-).

You will need some lollipop sticks. I bought mine from ebay but you can pick them up from cake decorating shops as well.

Ingredients:

Oreo biscuits (I used 2 packets to get 18 pops – I had a few breakages)

400g white chocolate chips

Edible confetti or sprinkles

Method:

First you need to separate the Oreo’s. I did this by sliding a butter knife carefully between one side of the biscuits and the icing. I did break some of the biscuits but I worked out that if they aren’t too badly broken you can put them back together with the next step.

Ok, this is the secret… Melt about 100g of the chocolate and put a dollop on one half of each of the biscuits (see picture). Put a lollipop stick on top of the chocolate and sandwich with the top biscuit. Allow these to set completely.

Next, melt the rest of the chocolate, allow it to cool slightly then dip each of the pops into the chocolate. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper to set.

Sprinkle with your choice of decorations. I refrigerated these for a couple of minutes so they set a little quicker and the chocolate didn’t run off them completely.

You will be sure to please with these! 🙂 My boys are enjoying the leftovers right now.

    Wow, they look fantastic.
    So they are easier than the cake pop?

      They are much easier than cake pops although you can get the cake pop trays these days so that might make them easier also.

    Hi, do you think i could make these a few days in advance?

      Hi Luisa, I have made these a day or so ahead but the biscuits would get a little soggy if made to far ahead. Thanks for the question!
