As soon as October is finished, it feels like suddenly the holiday season is on our doorstep and that means Christmas desserts and treats. With invites to Christmas parties, classroom parties and entertaining friends and family at home more often, it’s always helpful to have a few quick and easy treats to throw together.

Just like these no-bake choc peppermint balls, using leftover candy canes, these Christmas chocolate-coated Oreo pops are so simple to make and are always a crowd-pleaser. Who doesn’t love Oreos? Plus having them on a stick means less melted chocolate on little fingers! During our Australian summer Christmas, this is a huge bonus!

TIP: The Oreos will separate when you dip them in the melted chocolate, as the heat softens the cream. You will need to hold your Oreo together on the stick and smooth over this part with chocolate after the rest is coated.

Use a mug instead of a shallow bowl for your melted chocolate as it will help you to dip your Oreo deeper into the chocolate, rather than having to roll in a shallow dish. This is something I learnt the hard way but now use a mug instead.

For more Oreo desserts, these double chocolate Oreo brownies are a crowd-pleaser and easy to make. Or try this no-bake Oreo cheesecake too! Both are great for entertaining or cut into small pieces to take with you to events and get-togethers.

How To Make Oreo Pops

  1. Crush candy canes into small pieces. An easy way to do this is by placing a few candy canes into a ziplock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments, stirring in between. Take care not to burn your chocolate.
  3. Slide a wooden ice cream stick or plastic lollypop stick into the centre of your Oreo. Make sure you slide it 3/4 of the way in. This will help it stay firm once the chocolate sets.
  4. Dip your Oreo into the melted chocolate. You will need to hold your Oreo together during this stage as it will come apart. Once your Oreo is coated, smooth over the area your fingers were with the back of a spoon so it is completely covered in chocolate.
  5. Roll in the crushed candy cane or decorate with sprinkles, cake decorating candies or anything else you wish to use.
  6. Place on parchment paper and once you have finished decorating all the Oreos, place in the refrigerator to set. This should only take approximately half an hour.

Chocolate-Coated Oreo Pop Decorations

For Christmas Oreo Pops, crushed candy cane is a perfect decoration and the peppermint flavours taste delicious paired with the Oreo and chocolate. This works for milk, dark or white chocolate dipped Oreos.

We also made a batch using white chocolate and cake decorating candy. They are supposed to look like a snowman but they look a little more like a scarecrow, as we did not have any black candies. Still super cute!

For other Oreo decorating ideas:

  • Christmas sprinkles in green, red and white
  • Use food colouring to change the colours of white chocolate for bright-coloured Oreos
  • Place a mini Reeces candy on top, facing down, to make your Oreos look like Christmas ornaments

FAQS & TIPS

How do you make Oreo Pops without breaking them?

To minimise the risk of breaking Oreos, add the sticks to your Oreo very carefully then place in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes. This will keep the cream firm longer when dipping in melted chocolate. You will still need to gently hold your Oreo biscuit when coating in chocolate to avoid the cookie separating.

How do you store Oreo Pops?

Store Chocolate Oreo pops in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Useful Supplies For Making Oreo pops

We used wooden popsicle sticks for our Oreo pops, as this is what we had on hand at home already. However you can also purchase packs of lollypop or cake pop sticks for the same purpose. These look great.

Either works fine so go with whichever option you prefer!
