Here is the solution to all who wonders what kind of delights they can prepare for these Holidays!
Here is how to make your very own Reindeer Oreo Cookie Pops!
It’s a fun idea featuring Oreo, and who doesn’t LOVE Oreo? :)
- 24 cream-filled sandwich cookies (like Oreos)
- Small twist pretzels
- White chocolate chips
- Red sixlets (or small red candies)
- 1 lb melting chocolate wafers
- 24 lollipop sticks
Step 1: Start by cutting up the pretzels. You can use a sharp knife to cut them in half, then cut away the center section where the pretzels were joined–this gives you two pieces that each have 3 prongs. Be careful during the step, because the pretzel halves are delicate and will easily break.
Repeat until you have 24 sets of pretzel antlers.
Step 2: Now melt the chocolate melting wafers in a medium bowl in the microwave, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating.
Once it’s melted and smooth, dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate.
Step 3: You are half way :) Carefully insert the chocolate tip into the creamy center of a sandwich cookie, so that it extends up at least 1/2-inch. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper, and repeat until all of the cookies are skewered. Refrigerate the tray for 5-10 minutes, until the chocolate is set.
Step 4: You can briefly re-warm the chocolate in the microwave until it is smooth and fluid. Hold the base of a lollipop stick, and dip a cookie in the chocolate until it is completely coated, then hold it over the bowl so the chocolate can drip back down. Lightly scrape the bottom of the cookie on the lip of the bowl, to remove any excess, then place the dipped cookie back on the baking sheet.
Step 5: While the coating is still wet, press a red candy into the center of the cookie.
Step 6: Then add two white chocolate chips above the red candy for eyes.
Step 7: Next add two pretzel antlers, pressing them between the cookies and into the space where the cream filling is. After you’ve assembled one reindeer this way, repeat until all of the cookies are dipped and decorated.
Step 8: To finish, dip a toothpick in the melted coating and give each reindeer two black dots in the center of their white eyes.
Ta dah! You’re done and your Oreo Reindeer Pops are ready :)
