After a couple of miserable attempts at making cake pops, I quickly realized that Oreo Pops are much simpler to make and my family and friends enjoy them just as much. Last summer I made these Patriotic Oreo Pops and they were a real hit, so I decided to do some pops for our Easter gathering this weekend. My (almost) local craft store had Wilton Candy Melts 50% a couple of weeks ago, and I stocked up on all the colors of spring – including several bags of yellow which were prefect for these Easter Chick Oreo Pops.
These little chicks turned out so cute, if I may give myself a little pat on the back.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
Yellow candy melts, melted
Orange candy coated chips (for the beak)
Orange wild flower confetti sprinkles (for the feet)
1/4″ White and Black Icing Eyes
1. Carefully separate the Oreo, to insert the lollipop stick. Use a dab of candy melts or frosting to secure the stick between the 2 cookie halves. Allow to set for a few minutes.
2. Dip the Oreo Pops into the candy melts, and carefully shake off any excess. Smooth a bit with the back of a spoon if needed.
3. While the coating is still soft, place 2 eyes onto the chick. Next, add 1 candy coated chip for the beak and 2 orange wild flower sprinkles near the bottom for the feet. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and chill until chocolate coating is set.
Note: I ordered the candy eyes, wildflower sprinkles, and candy coated chips from Amazon – I do a ton of shopping on Amazon, since I live out in the boonies. But you should probably be able to pick these supplies up at your grocery store or craft store.
