If you’re looking for a super simple yummy Valentine’s treat – look no further. I volunteered to bring snacks for my son’s Pre-K and Daycare Valentine’s Day parties, so I wanted something that was quick and easy. These Oreo pops were a breeze. These could easily be customized for any holiday or occasion. Here’s what you need:
- Oreos (I chose Red Velvet)
- Treat Sticks
- White Chocolate
- Sprinkles (Optional)
- Food Coloring (Optional)
- Parchment Paper
First you’ll want to prep your Oreos. Simply place the treat sticks into the filling. The double stuff or any of the flavored Oreos work the best because they have more filling to help hold the sticks in place.
Next melt your chocolate according to the directions on the package. Sorry if these directions are vague but I know from experience that each brand of chocolate is different. The kind I bought was microwaveable – so easy!
Once you have that ready, it’s time to dip your Oreo pops. Make sure the cookie is completely coated and set them aside on your parchment paper to dry. I needed to make 3 dozen of these bad boys to cover both parties. I made the first dozen white, then added a couple drops of food coloring between each dozen…that way I ended up with 3 different shades of chocolate just for a little variety.
If you choose to decorate your Oreo pops, you’ll want to do so while the chocolate is still wet so the sprinkles will stick. You can also use a fork to drizzle extra chocolate if you like that look.
Now you just have to wait for them to harden (put them in the fridge to speed up the process). That’s it! These are so simple and would be a great recipe for your kids to help with too. Added bonus – you can make these up to a week in advance if needed as long as you store them in an air tight container. Give them a try and be sure to tag us so we can see your creations!
