I recently scored a few packages of Oreo cookies for only $0.50/package!! I love Oreos, but I also love making desserts! There are so many options when it comes to making desserts with Oreos, but I wanted to try something new!! So today I spent some time in my kitchen playing with Oreos!!
I decided to try my hand at making some Oreo pops and wanted to try out some flowers since it is finally starting to feel like Spring!!!
I gathered up all the supplies I needed Oreos, Mini Oreos, and some colored chocolate. I also had some Nutter Butter Bites, which were perfect for the job as well! I got a great deal on Wilton Candy Melts at our local Jo Ann Fabric & Craft Store. They were on sale for 25% off, plus I had a coupon for an additional 25% off. They also have some interesting flavors. I found some white chocolate that was marshmallow flavor and some Dark Cocoa Raspberry flavored chocolate as well!
To melt the chocolate I used a glass measuring cup and melted in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds.
I took apart all of the Mini Oreos to use them as petals for the flower. In order to secure the Oreo on the pop stick I added some extra chocolate inside, plus who doesn’t like extra chocolate?!? I let those sit and harden for about 15 minutes before moving on to the next step.
After the cookies were secured to the stick it was time to attach the petals. I dipped each piece of Mini Oreo into some more chocolate and pressed it into the center of the Oreo. I found that 6 or 7 Mini Oreos worked great! After those were all attached, it was again time to wait for them to harden and be sure the petals were nice and secure.
After the petals were dried on I could then cover the entire Oreo Flower Pop with chocolate. I found that using a spoon to pour the chocolate onto the Oreo pop worked best versus dipping. I then lightly tapped it on the side of the bowl to remove excess and laid it on parchment paper to dry completely. I have many ideas to try for decorating them yet with sprinkles, using M&M’s, other colored chocolates and so much more. These would make such cute party favors! If you decide to try, we would love to see what you come up with!!
Since I was going to be meeting up with a certain someone, whom we all love dearly, who just happens to be a HUGE Mickey Mouse fan, I decided to make her a Mickey and Minnie Oreo pop too! But, Mickey decided to wear a birthday hat, since her birthday will be here soon. Did you know they make Bugles in Chocolate Peanut Butter?! Those worked great for a birthday hat!
Clippie from Wisconsin Coupon Clippers (Nationwide Page) decided he wanted his own tested and approved Oreo pop as well!! Clippie approved the Final Results and decided they were Mooolicious!
Overall it was a fun day in the kitchen, playing with Oreos! I packed them all up in bags to share with some great friends. I have so many more ideas for next time! What is your favorite dessert to make with Oreos? We would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below!
