Oreo Pop tutorial

So when Melissa, my cousin's wife found out she was preggo I was so excited that I was going to be able to throw her a shower. Early into the pregnancy she also realized that her cravings for oreos was much larger than normal - and if someone would ask her if she needed anything she always replied - "oreos". so from that moment i knew that i wanted to make oreo pops for her shower that we were going to be throwing her...

i thought that these little favors would be adorable and fun to make - however they turned into a little labor of love [but with a few trial and errors - a process was created, so stay with me - i was photo happy to begin with and then i think i forgot to take a few pictures during the process...]

I started out using double stuffed oreos - and i twisted the cookies apart keeping the top with the bottoms... and yes it is okay to eat all of the broken cookies

so this is the dangerous part [and i am VERY accident prone so please have 9-1-1 on speed dial if you are similar to me.. ha!] i used my gas stove - but a candle or anything with a flame will work - heat your lollipop stick over your heat source[bought in the candy isle at your local michael's or joanns]
press the sticks into the frosting [and make sure the stick goes all the way through to the cookie - so that the cookie will go back together properly] make sure the sticks are completely set before you move onto the next step
melt a little bit of white chocolate chips in a double broiler and spread it onto the cookie piece of the oreo [the non frosting side]
make sure that the oreos are set and secured to their lollipop sticks and are not going to come undone before dipping them into the white chocolate. dip the cookies into melted white chocolate [you can add a little crisco, paraffin wax or olive oil to stop to prevent the white chocolate from sweating once it sets - and the evoo will not make it taste funny - i promise!] and let cool on wax paper.
[please envision a bunch of dipped oreos that have been dunked into white chocolate]

i drizzled two different colors of white chocolate on top of the dipped oreos [i used pink and green to match the shower]
once the drizzle is set then you can bag the pops. i used these from michael's which worked perfectly and they fit right over the oreos

my guest probably hate this next step but its the only thing that i can think of to hold the bags shut - so i use fishing line initially
and then add a little flair with a ribbon
and then i put all of the favors in this cute little basket [that i found at joann's]

and there ya have it a looooong tutorial of how to make oreo pops!

i hope you have a chance to make these little lovlies! they may be a labor of love when you are making a large batch - but i think they are so cute!
