Breezy Days: How to: Make Festive Oreo Pops

How to: Make Festive Oreo Pops

December 13, 2013
I've made these to gift as Christmas presents, and they are always a total hit with friends and family! They are pretty easy & cheap to make, are sugar-coma delicious, and they look like you spent all day on them ;) 

Ingredients
-Double Stuf Oreos
-White chocolate melting chips
-Peppermint candy canes
-Sturdy holiday paper straws
-Bakers Twine
-Treat bags, small & clear plastic

Directions
1. Heat up the white chocolate melting chips in your fondue pot.
2. Cut your festive holiday straws in half, and then pinch the end flat, because you'll be putting into the oreo.
3. After separated the cookie, slide the pinched side underneath the oreo cream. Then place the other half of the cookie back on, and make sure it goes seamlessly back together. This is why you bought double stuf, to make sure the straw will fit!
4. Instead of dipping the cookie, I used a spoon to drizzle the fondue chocolate onto the cookie. This is to make sure your cookie doesn't fall apart.
5. Place your oreo pop on a sheet of parchment paper. I bought peppermint candy canes and crushed them myself, but I've heard you can just buy them already crushed. Regardless, this is the step where you sprinkle on the peppermint candy cane deliciousness. You have to do this right after you drizzle on the chocolate & while it's still hot, so the candy will stay on the cookie.
6. Let your oreo pop cool on the parchment paper for about 5-7 minutes. 
7. Wait until fully cooled, then peel the oreo pop off. 

Optional
8. Place the top of the pop into a treat bag.
9. Tie it up with some adorable bakers twine.
10. Voila! Amazingly delicious & cute Christmas gifts!
