Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. I love decorating the house, figuring out costumes, and seeing all the kids out trick-or-treating. I also enjoy making fun Halloween cookies and cupcakes for the kids. As a Rogers ambassador, Ignite TV has an adorable app for Halloween that includes an Arts & Crafts section featuring some fun and easy recipes. Inspired by the recipe which originally appeared on Delish, I created my own Halloween Oreo Pops.
I had to adjust the recipe slightly as white chocolate doesn’t melt very well. Instead, I opted for melting wafers you can find at a bulk foods store as they are easier to work with (I went to Bulk Barn). Here is my recipe:
Halloween Oreo Pops – Jack O’Lantern and Jack Skellington
1 cup white chocolate melting wafers
1 cup orange chocolate melting wafers
1/4 cup dark chocolate melting wafers
16 Oreo cookies
4-5 spearmint gummy leaves
16 lollipop sticks or paper straws
Fill a pot about 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and fit a stainless steel mixing bowl into the pot. The bottom of the bowl should not reach the water with a few inches in between.
Add the white chocolate wafers and stir until melted.
Take the Oreo cookies and pierce a lollipop stick or paper straw (press flat) into the Oreo cookie filling. Using a spoon, pour melted chocolate over an Oreo pop until covered. Allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place onto a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Continue to dip 7 more cookies.
Cut spearmint gummy leaves into thin slices. Melt the orange chocolate wafers. Before cooling, place a spearmint gummy leave as the pumpkin stump.
Place dipped cookies in the refrigerator to cool for about 10 minutes or until set.
Melt dark chocolate in a bowl. Using a toothpick, design faces on Oreo pops. Place back into the fridge to set.
Use the same idea and use green melting chocolate to make Frankensteins and witches!
