Spooky Fun! Halloween Oreo Pops | Mamarazzi Photography
I haven't shared a recipe in a while! Since I LOVE Oreos (they are awesome) and this looks like fun, I decided I'd share this recipe for you to try with your favorite little monsters!
If you try it I'd love to hear how it goes! What are your plans for Halloween this year? I have a couple of mommas due around then, so I will just be handing out candy and waiting on a couple of little pun'kins to arrive! LOL
Halloween Oreo Pops
Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Total Servings: 20-25
- 1 package of your favorite Oreos
- 1 bag (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
- 48 edible candy eyeballs
- 1 bag string black licorice laces
- Optional: vegetable oil or shortening -- makes the chocolate easier to work with
- Lollipop sticks
- Parchment Paper
- Line a large tray with parchment paper and set aside. Gently separate the oreos by slowly twisting them apart. (Some will break, it's okay, just try to be gentle)
- Separate the milk chocolate into 3 parts (this is to keep it from getting hard while you decorate) and place each section in a microwave safe bowl.
- Into each bowl of chocolate chips add about 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil or shortening (more if needed to thin it even more).
- Melt in 20 second bursts in the microwave (Microwave 20 seconds, stir 20 seconds, etc.)
- Be patient when melting and stir well in between bursts to avoid burning the chocolate.
- Dip one end of the lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and press that side into the cream side of the oreo. Cut the licorice laces into even pieces about an inch long. Press 4 cut licorice laces into the cream of the right side of the oreo and 4 more cut licorice laces into the cream on the left of the oreo.
- Place the other half of the oreo on top and gently press and hold. Let harden.
- Gently spoon melted chocolate over the top of the oreos being careful to avoid the licorice (its okay if some chocolate gets on the licorice).
- Gently place two edible eyes into the melted chocolate and set the finished (but still wet) oreos onto the prepared tray lined with parchment paper (if you don't use parchment paper they won't come up nicely).
- Allow to harden at room temperature.
