I saw Oreos dipped in chocolate on a stick online and thought how cute, yummy and quick would these be for a bake sale at my daughter's school. I did a search online. Read up on how others had made theirs and decided on a couple things. I didn't want to open each cookie up to put the stick in as a couple sites recommended. I definitely wanted to use popsicle sticks verses the white candy sticks. I just loved the look of the stick. I also loved the look of the white candy coating with sprinkles.
What I needed... 2 packs of "Double Stuf" Oreos, one pack of popsicle sticks, 2 - 12oz. bags of white candy coating (I used Guittard), and sprinkles of your choice. This made 52 Oreo pops. I think I had about 6 broken cookies that didn't even make it to the stick process. DH was glad to put them out of their misery.
For each cookie I measured how far I wanted the stick to go in then I pushed it into the cookie.
I found that probably half the cookies were either already broken or I broke them pushing the stick in. Not sure which. Holding the cookie semi firmly with fingers and thumb of one hand as I pushed the stick in kept everything together. I found the frosting held the cookies together nicely and that the broken cookie wasn't a factor in the finished product.
Only one time out of 52 did a piece of the broken cookie dropped off into the chocolate. I just picked it up and stuck it back in place. No problem.

I used a spoon to drizzle candy coating around the center frosting section
They just turned out adorable.
They looked like something one would have to buy.
I know they will be a hit at the bake sale.
I could have sent them over like this, but I was feeling very crafty yesterday.
And I wrapped each one in a little bag.
