Chocolate covered Oreos? Yes please! A few festive sprinkles? Why sure! So here’s the deal, I tried to make chocolate covered Oreo pops, but I ended up with half pops and half regular chocolate covered Oreos. Doesn’t really matter, still super cute and tasty!

Let’s get to the Oreos.
Ingredients: double stuf Oreos, candy melts, lollipop sticks and sprinkles
Start by sticking the lollipop sticks into your Oreos. There are a couple ways to do this. I just stuck them in. But in the process, I cracked the cookies a bit, which I think led to some instability when I was dipping them. You can also separate one side of the cookie from the stuf, put the lollipop stick in and then use a little bit of the candy melt to reattach the cookie.
Melt your candy melts. 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat. Until the melts are smooth. Then dip the Oreos. I used the spoon to cover the Oreo entirely. If the Oreo fell into the candy melts, I just scooped it out and put it onto the pan to dry.
I used a baking sheet with aluminum foil to let the candy melts set up. Before they dried, I sprinkled on some sprinkles. A tasty treat and, I think, a great gift idea. Takes no time at all though. Just don’t get frustrated if your Oreo pops end up being just chocolate covered Oreos.
