Halloween is only one week away and as I was scrolling through Pinterest trying to find some inspo for Halloween treats to make with my friend, Disney Pink Adventures, Delish.com came through with these Jack Skellington Oreo Pops. I watched their tutorial video and immediately tried to make them! Judging by the pictures of the final product, our Oreos turned out ok, but it was a struggle.
The two biggest problems we had with this recipe were the lollipop sticks and dipping into the white chocolate. So first, the instructions tell you to put the lollipop sticks into the cream of the Oreos. Well, that was almost impossible since the cream holds the cookie together, and disrupting that with the lollipop stick resulted in the Oreos cracking or just breaking in half. Once that happens, you won't be able to dip into the white chocolate because the cookie will be falling apart and won't be able to hold the weight of the chocolate.
Second, dipping into the white chocolate wasn't as easy as they made it look in the tutorial video. The sticks with the Oreos were very fragile. So when we tried to dip them straight in and pull them straight out, the cookie either wasn't fully covered in chocolate or it looked as if it was about to fall off at any minute (because of the weight of the chocolate).
Also, how did Delish.com get their Oreos so smooth? After we had some solid Oreos dipped, we smoothed them out by hand before letting them set/harden so we could decorate the faces. But that definitely didn't happen naturally after the initial dips.
After a few bumps in the road, we decorated the faces and tied a ribbon around the stick. We were surprised that they actually turned out super cute! The process can be difficult, but the result was a messy success. Be careful though, the icing from the face turned our mouths black! Ha!
Jack Skellington Oreos
- 12 Halloween Oreos
- 2 cups white chocolate, melted
- 2 teaspoon paramount crystals
- black icing
- 12 lollipop sticks
- black ribbon
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Stick the lollipop sticks into the cream of the Oreos.
- Melt white chocolate in the microwave in 30 sec. intervals so you don't burn the chocolate.
- Mix in paramount crystals into the melted chocolate, 1 teaspoon at a time, until there are no lumps in the chocolate.
- Dip the Oreos into the chocolate until they are completely coated. Let it harden so that decorating the face is easier.
