Woohoo! Today’s the day! It’s time for our second annual Ultimate Red, White & Blue Blog Hop, and I am seriously loving all of these incredible patriotic projects that my blogging friends have created just for you!
I’m sharing how to make patriotic Oreo pops that are sure to impress your friends and family (but are totally quick and easy to make!)! Stick around after the tutorial to see over 90+ more red, white and blue food, decor and craft ideas too!
What You’ll Need:
- Wilton Candy Melts in Red, White and Royal Blue
- Oreo Cookies
- 4″ Lollipop Sticks
- Assorted Sprinkles (I used small stars, large stars and patriotic nonpareils)
- 3 Microwave-Safe Cups
- Snack Size Ziploc Bags (optional – for drizzle decorations)
Start by twisting and separating the Oreos into two halves. In a microwave-safe cup, melt a small amount of white candy melts in 20-second increments, stirring well after each. Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted candy, and sandwich it between both halves of the Oreo.
Fill a microwave-safe cup about 2/3 full of red candy melts, and melt them in the microwave (again using 20-second increments and stirring afterward). Dip the Oreo pop into the red candy, allowing the candy to completely cover the cookie, and then lay the cookie pop on a sheet of parchment paper to cool and firm up. Add sprinkles while the candy is still wet (if desired). Repeat the process for each additional color of candy melts.
To add a drizzle of color, melt 6-8 candy melts in a snack size ziploc bag. The candy will melt much faster in the bags than it did in the cup, so melt it in 10 second increments, kneading the bag between increments. Snip a TINY bit off of the corner of the bag, and drizzle the melted candy over the Oreo pops. Easy peasy!
I couldn’t make it through shooting all of these photos without needing to take a “taste test break” though!
