Here is a funny and silly little treat to make for Easter. These are just chocolate covered oreos – so they are very fast to make and much easier then cake pops.
You can wrap these with little cellophane bags and turn them into a lollipop for class parties or to stick inside little Easter baskets.
I thought the eyes made these look like crazy chicks but my kids giggled like crazy at these. I think if I make them again I might just dab on dots of black icing for the eyes . Oh and if you have never had a chocolate covered Oreo you are missing out! They are really delicious.
- Oreo Cookies
- Yellow Chocolate candy melts
- Sucker sticks
- Orange Starbursts
- Candy eyes or black icing tube
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy melts in 20 second bursts, stirring in between until completely melted.
- Open each Oreo to expose the filling.
- One at a time, dip one end of the sucker sticks into the melted chocolate and place into the filling. Replace the top of each Oreo. Allow chocolate to set for 2-3 minutes.
- While sucker sticks are setting, take a small portion of orange Starbursts and warm it in between your fingers.
- Roll it into a short snake and create points and each end.
- Fold in half to create the beak.
- Dip each Oreo into melted chocolate, tapping off any excess. Place on a sheet of parchment paper.
- Place eyes and beak on Oreo and allow to set for 15 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
The trick to oreo pops is that sometimes once the chocolate is on, they can get too heavy to hold on a stick. I like to dip the end of the stick in chocolate and that seems to help keep the cookie on the stick.
For the beak, it is really simple to make. If you don’t want to use Starburst, an orange tic tac would also work.
This is how you want to roll the Starburst out and then you simply fold it in half to make the beak shape.
And here is the finished product which I think is silly and fun:
