Add A Sweet Touch To Your Next Party
My daughter is absolutely obsessed with birthday parties! We basically have a birthday party everyday for Elsa, Anna, Barbie, or Lea Clark (her new American girl doll). I am more than alright with the fuss around birthdays because I love celebrating life (even pretend life). She has been planning her own birthday party for the last 364 days now, basically the day after she turned four.
We’ve kind of made a week or two out of her birthday celebration. Today I wanted to share with you a cute idea that you can use for the next party you have! It’s super simple and can be customized to fit any theme or celebration. You can serve them at the party or use them as a party favor for your guests.
To start off, here are the ingredients I used to make the Oreo pops:
- I like the golden Oreo double stuffed. If you are wanting a Fall flare you can check out these Pumpkin Spice on Amazon.
- Wax paper
- Vanilla Almond Bark
- Wilton Pop favor bag kits
- Wilton Cookie Sticks
- Wilton Decoration Kit
You can find all of these ingredients at Walmart, Amazon or your local grocery store.
For preparation, you will need to line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Next, separate the Oreos. I found it easier to twist them apart than to pull them. You may break a few so make sure you have extras!
Next, you will want to melt a cube or two of the Almond bark. This will be to attach the stick so you won’t need to melt very much. Place a small dollop of melted chocolate in the middle of one of the cookie sides.
Simply place the stick in the melted chocolate. Now you can place the top of the cookie back on. Be careful that you don’t push the top of the cookie down too hard or it will break in half. I learned this from experience. These will need to cool and harden before the next step. You can speed up the process by placing the cookie pan in the refrigerator.
So now you are ready to cover them in yummy chocolate (or almond bark which is basically the same thing)! Melt several squares of your almond bark in the microwave. You will need to stir it frequently between heatings to ensure it doesn’t burn.
Use a spatula to cover all sides of the cookie with the almond bark. During my first attempt I tried to dip them. This made the cookies fall apart. It might take a few tries but you will get the hang of how to cover them beautifully. Don’t be too concerned with perfection. They will even out when you lay them flat. Also, I really wanted mine to have an artisan look so I didn’t stress over them each being slightly different.
Now it’s time to decorate. You want to add any decorations and sprinkles while the almond bark is still soft. Of course we did all pink!
Pop these in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes and you are ready to wrap them up.
The kit I suggested above comes with ribbon. You simply place them in the wrapper and tie a bow around them. That is all that there is to it!
One thing to note…the sticks I used where too large to place in the cake pop holder I bought. If you are planning on displaying them in a cake pop holder you will need to make sure that you buy the sticks that fit.
Here you see the finished product!!!
So what are you waiting on? Go ahead and give it a try!!! I can’t wait to hear about it. Leave a picture in the comments below of your Oreo cake pops!
From our home to yours…wishing you a healthy (well most days) and happy day!
