Last week Megan at Megan's Cookin' and I were admiring some really cute Oreo in Disguise cookie pops that are dressed up as apples over at Cookies and Cups. They are really cute and as we chatted about them, we both thought it would be fun to try them out, but make pumpkins/jack-o-lanterns. The apples are just Oreos on a stick, dipped in red candy melts and a pretzel in the top for the stem. The pumpkin idea would be just as simple, but with a face frosted on. A green ribbon is tied to the stem to look like leaves.
I must tell you that while I made the Oreo Pumpkin Pops and for the most part it was fun, making yummy treats really cute looking is just not my forte. For that same reasoning, I have never attempted cake decorating. I actually would like to take a few classes someday. I can’t even swirl frosting on a cupcake and make it look good.
Anyway, these are super easy to make with candy melts. I did the faces with some fondant icing that comes in a perfect little tube with a small tip. The boys like these more than I thought they would. You want to be sure to use Double Stuf Oreos so the stick and pretzel stem fits inside. I used some Oreos I hadn’t seen before called Heads and Tails. One side of the cookie is the vanilla cookie and the other side is the traditional chocolate Oreo.
You could do these with all kinds of themes-Christmas ornaments, basketballs, baseballs. What other ideas can you think of?
Check out Megan’s pumpkin Oreos. If you check and she hasn’t posted hers yet, keep checking. I can’t wait to see hers. (I know they’ll look much better than mine, I’ve seen some great sugar cookie decorating she’s done!) You can also check out the Apple Pops at Cookies and Cups (links are provided above). Thanks for cookie poppin’ along with me, Megan! ;)
These would be really cute wrapped individually to give to someone or for a school class party.
Sorry about the poor quality of photos (lately that’s me, it seems). Plus, I didn’t finish these and take pictures until it was late one night.
