I don’t know about you but I definitely prefer gifts of the homemade variety. I think they’re so much more personalised and thoughtful! Why not treat your loved one to these pretty Valentines Day Oreo Pops this year? They’re simple to make but look & taste great!
Here is what you will need to make 14.
- 1 x 154g Pack of Golden Oreos
- 250g White Chocolate
- Red, Pink & White Sugar Sprinkles (at least 30g)
- 10cm (4″) Lollipop/Cake Pop Sticks
Step 1: To Make the Oreo Pops
First off, start by twisting all the Golden Oreos apart.
Then break the chocolate into a microwavable bowl. Reduce your microwave’s power to half then heat the chocolate in 20 second intervals. Stir well between each time and repeat until your chocolate is melted and smooth. Now dunk a lollipop stick into the melted white chocolate & press it into the Oreo cream filling. Place the other Oreo half on top (with the white chocolate acting as a glue) then place on a baking tray/chopping board.
Step 2: To Make the Oreo Pops
Repeat the process until all of the Oreos have been ‘glued’ back together with their new lollipop sticks.
Pop the tray/board into the fridge for 15-20 minutes to allow the chocolate to set completely before we move onto the next step.
Step 3: To Decorate
When the white chocolate ‘glue’ has set, you are ready to decorate! Get a large baking tray lined with baking paper ready & set to one side.
If you need to, pop the white chocolate back into the microwave and heat on half power in 20 second intervals until smooth & melted again.
Now all you need to do is dunk each Oreo Pop into the white chocolate and shake of any excess. Then dunk a side into the sprinkles and place onto your prepared baking tray to set.
Step 4: To Decorate
Repeat until all the Oreo Pops have been covered in chocolate/sprinkles.
Allow them to set at room temperature. Once set, peel off the baking paper and store at room temperature in an airtight container. Consume within 2 weeks.
Step 5: Tadah!
These would look gorgeous wrapped in a cellophane bag & tied with a bow! It’s also a lovely craft to get the kids involved with. You could even get a polystyrene block/flower oasis, place it in the bottom of a small box or vase & turn them into a bouquet of Valentines Day Oreo Pops flowers with some green crepe paper. I’m certain that would keep Mum very happy!
