How to make chocolate covered Oreo pops

Years ago, I used to make chocolate-covered Oreos on a regular basis. I decorated them as mummies, bees, ladybugs, and many other fun shapes. It was always a challenge to make them into Oreo pops because my lollipop sticks were just a little thicker than the filling between the Oreos.

Luckily, I have a simple trick to make sure your Oreo cookies don’t break when you try to make Oreo pops.

Chocolate covered Oreos

Oreos with an extra layer of chocolate, I find it a treat. You can keep it simple by dipping an Oreo in milk chocolate, for example, and sprinkling some sprinkles or chopped nuts on top.

I really enjoy decorating chocolate-covered Oreos. I will show you some examples later. You can make them for all kinds of holidays and other festive occasions.

Place the chocolate-covered Oreos on a tray and give your guests a delicious treat. Also very cute: a bag of decorated Oreos to give away.

As you will see later, I like to poke a stick into my chocolate Oreos to make Oreo pops. I use lollipop sticks to do this. And to make them extra fun, I put a paper straw around them.

These paper straws come in all kinds of colors and patterns, so you can always pick a straw that matches your Oreo pop.

How to make Oreo pops

As mentioned above, you can easily turn your chocolate Oreos into Oreo Pops. Let me tell you how I do it. With this technique, the cookies won’t break and certainly won’t come off.

  1. First, twist the Oreo cookies apart.
  2. Using a knife, make a small hole in the filling where the stick will fit.
  3. Place the cake pop stick in the indentation and spread the removed filling around the stick to hold it in place.
  4. Melt some of the chocolate or candy melts you will be decorating your Oreos with and pipe/spoon it over the Oreo filling.
  5. Place the other cookie on top and press down gently. Just let the chocolate set and your cake pop will be stuck firmly between the two cookies.

How easy is that! If you follow this simple step-by-step plan, your Oreo will be firmly attached to the stick and will not come loose when you dip the Oreo in the chocolate afterwards.

Decorating chocolate covered Oreos

You can decorate Oreos with a few sprinkles or turn them into a real work of art. Decorate Oreo pops for Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s Day and other holidays.

Below are Bee Oreo Pops and Ladybug Oreo Pops. For these Oreo pops, I used yellow, red and black candy melts. The bee’s face and stripes were made with dark chocolate.

I used Wilton’s Candy Eyeballs for the eyes. The bee has wings made from half almonds.

I have more examples of Oreo Pops characters. How fun are these mummies for Halloween? And the chicks are perfect for Easter.

For the mummy Oreo pops, I used white candy melts. If you use white chocolate, your mummies will not be completely white because the chocolate is more of a cream color.

Cover the eyes with chocolate first, then pipe the strands over the Oreo pops. Don’t forget to put some chocolate over the eyes for the best effect.

I personally used white candy melts to dip the Oreos in, but you can also buy the ready-made white chocolate covered Oreos.

I used yellow and orange candy melts for the chicks. You can also color the white chocolate yourself. Just make sure you use oil-based dyes or the colors won’t be pretty.
