How to make patriotic Oreo pops for 4th of July + over 90 other incredible red, white and blue crafts, recipes, and decor ideas for Independence Day!
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.
Allow the candy to cool and firm completely before moving on to the next step. A quick trip to the freezer will speed up the process if you’re in a hurry.
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!
Allow the pops to cool and firm before handling.
These yummy treats are super easy to make, and they’re SUPER cute, too! I may have taken nearly a zillion photos of them because they’re so adorable…
I couldn’t make it through shooting all of these photos without needing to take a “taste test break” though!

These look amazing! How many did this recipe make? Did you have enough for an entire bag of Oreos?
Yes! I used three different colors of candy melts, and I made 20 cookies with plenty of candy melts leftover, so I’m sure it would do the entire bag! 🙂

What a fun idea! Can’t wait to try these! 🙂
These are great! How far ahead of an event can you make these? I wanted to do some like this for my son’s class as birthday party favors. It’s not until Tuesday, but I’d like to make them ahead since theres some other things I need to work on too 🙂 TIA.
Thanks for stopping by! You can definitely make these up to a week ahead of your event – just store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator for best results! 🙂
If you do them ahead of time and store them, will the cookie part get soggy?
Not at all! I have made these up to a week ahead of time, and they have always been perfect. For best results, store the finished pops in the refrigerator or somewhere cool until party time. 🙂
In the “Things you need” section, Oreos are not listed!
Oops! Good catch, Kerry! I updated it! 🙂
