Have you ever tried to make cake pops? I have and the result was #pinterestfail. I’m going to leave cake pops to the bakers! But, I love the way they look and it’s fun to have a cute little treat on hand for Valentine’s Day.
Instead of spending hours trying to perfect my cake pop game, I figured out a cake pop hack. This isn’t exactly a cake pop, but it’s covered in white chocolate, decorated and sits on a little stick. And best of all, the recipe takes about 15 minutes. If that’s not winning, I don’t know what is.
Valentine Oreo Pops Recipe
All you need is a package of oreos, white chocolate chips, some red and pink sprinkles and lollipop sticks. (I found the sticks at Michael’s Craft store in the baking aisle.)
- Pour out half the bag of white chocolate chips into a microwave-proof bowl. Cook for 30 seconds at time (stirring in between) until completely melted.
- Gently wiggle the stick in between each oreo. I say gently because it’s easy to break the cookie. I found the key was twisting the stick, using a double stuff oreo and not puttting it in too far.
- Spoon the melted chocolate on the top of each oreo. It’ll come down the sides and make it look completely coated. Place the oreo on a piece of parchment paper.
- Be ready with your sprinkles because the chocolate will start to harden. We played around with different varieties of sprinkles. I cut a heart out of a piece of paper to use as a template and that worked well too.
This would be such a fun project to do with kids. Or it’s an easy treat to give away as gifts. I won’t tell if you just want to make them to eat yourself!
