Chocolate Dipped Oreo Cookie Pops
- 10 ounce white chocolate chips
- 1-3 tablespoons butter Crisco shortening
- 1 package double stuff Oreos
- 1 package 4-inch lollipop sticks
- sprinkles or crushed candy canes for decorations
- 1 disposable plastic pastry bag optional
- Twist the cookies apart and set aside the side without the cream filling.
- Cut out a sliver of the cream filling that goes to the middle of the cookie filling and the same width as the lollipop stick. Discard the sliver of filling.
- Pour about ½ cup of the white chocolate chips into a pastry bag or tall and narrow plastic cup.
- Slowly melt the chocolate in the microwave for 20-second intervals, stirring each time or kneading the pastry bag when the microwave stops until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
- Cut a small hole in the tip of the pastry bag. Run a thin line of melted chocolate down the center of the cookie filling where you previously removed the cream filling. Immediately push the lollipop stick into the melted chocolate. Continue with all of the cookies. Remelting and refilling the pastry bag as needed. If you are not using a pastry bag just use a small spoon.
- After all the sticks are set into the cream center put a dime size dot of melted chocolate in the center over the lollipop stick. Immediately place one of the reserved cookies on top and push down on top of the cookie evenly over the bottom cookie. Set aside. Continue until all the cookies are back together.
- Allow the chocolate to set, about 20 minutes.
- Melt the remaining chocolate chips in a tall and narrow plastic cup using some butter, oil or Crisco to thin the melted chocolate to a nice dippable consistency.

- Begin dipping each Oreo Cookie Pop in the melted chocolate laying them down on a piece of parchment paper or wax paper. Immediately add some sprinkles, crushed candy cane or nonperils to the top of the cookie.
- Let chocolate harden at least 30 minutes or longer depending on the temperature in your kitchen. You can speed things up a bit by placing them in the refrigerator for 5 or 10 minutes. Be aware though that moisture can form on the chocolate. This will not ruin your cookie pops but they make for a better presentation without the moisture.
- Slip each cookie into a lollipop bag, tie a bit of ribbon or string around the stick for a pretty presentation.
