Halloween is almost here and I couldn’t resist making something fun and cute for the Halloween season. These cute little pops are made with your typical Oreo like sandwhich cookie (I used Joe Joes from Trader Joes beacuse I love all things Trader Joe’s!) dipped in white candy melts and decorated. I usually make Halloween cut out sugar cookies with my daughter and let her decorate them with sprinkles, but this year I thought I would try something new. These were a little hard for Katelyn to help with, but I gave her the task of sorting out the eyes and grouping them by color. Now though the task was easy, it was VERY hard for her to resist eating the whole bowl of mini M&M’s, I mean they are her favorite candy ever! These were a lot of fun to make and making them helped me practice my piping skills (I definitely could use the practice in this arena). I am taking them to our 3rd annual family Halloween party on Saturday and they are sure to be hit! I hope you all have a spooktacular Halloween this year!Mummy Cookie Pops Printer Friendly Version
1 (18 oz.) package Oreo cookies
2 pounds white candy melts
1 cup miniature M&M’s candies
Carefully separate Oreo cookies so you have one side with filling and one without. Melt 1 pound of white chocolate according to package directions. Dip the end of a sucker stick into the melted chocolate. Gently press the chocolate coated stick into the center of the Oreo filling. Carefully put the cookie back together. Repeat with remaining Oreos.
Dip the cookie sucker into the melted chocolate to coat completely. Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. While the chocolate is still soft, place two mini M&M’s eyes about 1/3 of the way down from the top of the cookie. Repeat with remaining cookie suckers. Melt more white chocolate as needed to coat all of the suckers. Place remaining melted chocolate into a large zip-top plastic bag and snip off a small corner. Pipe “mummy wrapping” over the suckers in a random pattern. Allow cookie pops to set completely before wrapping.
