Oreo Pops: The Ultimate Recipe for all the Non-Bakers of the World

My 100% African girl being as American as she can possibly be. ;) And yes, she was as thrilled to be wearing that stupid headband as she looks...

And we're back. Why do holiday weekends go by so fast?! I swear...the longer the weekends are, the quicker they go by. Right?! 

Anywho...like every other American in the country, my weekend was packed with time spent with family and friends, a pool, food, dessert, fireworks and even a few fourth of July sales. And when I mean I hit up a few sales, I mean I finally nailed down some of the cutest stuff to hang up in baby girl's nursery!! Finding stuff to hang on walls has always been an issue for me but I cannot WAIT for Beau to help me hang all the stuff I bought this weekend! We're getting closer to a finished nursery, people!

Ok so back to the food. I've always and forever said "I am not a baker" and that still stands true to this day. Let's just say measuring cups, exact measurements and I don't get along and it never fails, something goes awry and I wind up pissed off with the smoke detector going off. Never. Fails.

But. BUT! I can rock the heck out of "no-bake" recipes, such as these delicious, and might I add addictive, Oreo pops! I (obviously) made these for the 4th, but they can easily be made for any holiday or occasion: birthdays, parties, showers, Christmas, etc...

I found this recipe on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago and since then, this is my third time to make them. I'd like to go ahead and deem myself a pro Oreo pop maker. Take notes, people. ;)

Here's what you'll need:

  • Shish kabob sticks or popsicle sticks
  • Double Stuf Oreos (regular Oreos do not work as well...)
  • White baking chocolate (about .5 ounces per Oreo)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sprinkles
Step one: Open up your Oreos and place shish kabob sticks or popsicle sticks in the middle of the icing, covering back up with the top of the Oreo once you've done this to all of them.

Step two: Melt your baking chocolate. I prefer to heat mine in a glass bowl in the microwave. The trick here to not burning or over-cooking your dipping chocolate is to make sure you add the tablespoon of olive oil. DO NOT FORGET TO ADD THE OLIVE OIL...unless you want to make another trip to the store for more baking chocolate.

Step three: Dip each Oreo into the dipping chocolate and place on parchment paper.

Step four: Sprinkle with sprinkles of your choice and allow to cool/dry for at least an hour before eating. Make sure the chocolate is completely hardened.

I find these to be good as they are, but they are even better when you freeze them or put them in the refrigerator for a while! Needless to say, they were a HIT at the 4th of July party we went to! AND there was no baking involved. I'd like to consider that a win for this non-baking chick!

Hope you all had a great, long holiday weekend, too!! It's crazy to think the next holiday weekend is Labor Day, which is also my due date. {Insert freak out mode/happy dance!}


  1. Those look easy and delicious! I may just have to try them :)

  2. These look delish - although I would have to use milk chocolate as I'm not a white chocolate fan!

  3. These look amazing! Such a great idea

  4. This is my 3rd attempt at leaving a comment...blog is not loving me this a.m.! I love a good Oreo so I'm confident I'd like these. They remind me of the Oreo truffle balls I like to make at Christmastime :)

  5. OMG!!!! I've made the other Oreo balls (crumbled with cream cheese) but have NEVER gotten the tip about adding the olive oil. That explains why mine are always a clumpy mess and the ones in the pics are nice and smooth.

    Thanks so much for the tip!!!!! :)

  6. Those look amazing and super easy! Next time I have to bring a treat to someones house...oreo pops it is!

  7. Wow those look so tasty!! I would probably eat more than I needed to in the process of making them ;)

  8. These look so simple and so delicious! I will definitely be trying these for the next holiday! Yum!

  9. Delish!! I made some this weekend too - but without the stick!

  10. OMG these look amazing! I love anything that involves an Oreo!

  11. Awesome! I'm so making these next time I have to bring something to a party!

  12. Oh and Oakley looks so adorable in her patriotic headband!

  13. Why in the world am I reading this while hungry? I have a sudden urge to leave the house just to get oreos. #preggoproblems Glad y'all had a good weekend!

  14. Those are adorable! I've tried oreo pops before, but didn't know you were supposed to take the oreo apart to get the stick in - DUH!!! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Adorable!! Now I'm starving. Haha.

  16. I can't wait to try these while still pregnant and putting those pounds on. Lol. You say you found some things to hang in your nursery. But I also wanted to share an idea I found on Pinterest black and white canvas of those early details of a newborn. They were gorgeous and I fill in love. Just an idea.

  17. OMG. This tutorial couldn't have come at a better time! I was totally planning to make these for Weston's birthday, and was going to wing it. Thanks for the olive oil tip!!
