Howdy Everyone! I'm Jessica from Stress Baker and Kitty has graciously allowed me to do a guest post today on her fabulous blog! Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I'd show you all how to make these little guys:
Mummy & Owl Oreo Pops!
Aren't they cute? Well I'll let you in on a little secret - they're super easy to make!
Here's what you'll need:
Double stuffed Oreos (Seriously get the double stuffed - the regular ones aren't thick enough for the stick)
Almond bark (melted) - chocolate for the owls, white chocolate for the mummies
Chocolate chips - for the mummies' eyes
White chocolate chips - for the owls' eyes
Candy corn - for the owl beaks
lollipop sticks (I found mine at Hobby Lobby but I think they have them at Michael's too)
This is really easy! You just start out by putting the stick into the cookie and put a good amount of peanut butter on one side of the cookie like so:
I think I probably ate about five of these before actually completing a whole owl pop, so resist the temptation if you can! Next you're just going to dunk the peanut butter side into the the melted almond bark and lay onto a piece of wax paper un-dunked side down. While the almond bark is still wet, go ahead and set the faces up.
Let them rest and cool. You can always pop them in the freezer/fridge in a pinch so that they dry faster. After they're dry, go ahead and dunk the other side, making sure everything is covered. Lay them face side down. Allow them to dry completely. And while you've got some free time, feel free to check me out at Stress Baker!
Here's where the directions divide a bit: Mummy directions are directly below and owls are a bit further down.
When the mummies are dry, place some melted, slightly cooled, white almond bark into a pastry bag fitted with a flat or round tip; zipper bags always work great too! When I say slightly cooled, please learn from my experience - that stuff is HOT! and it burnt my little finger. So save your fingers!
When you're ready with the almond bark, make zig zag patterns so that the pop looks kinda like this:
You can either leave these little dudes without pupils or you can use a toothpick, dip it into some leftover white almond bark and give them little pupils. Either way, they taste great and look really cute!
To finish up the owls, you simply place a toothpick into dark almond bark and give the little guys some pupils. The end result are these cute little critters!
Thanks for having me Kitty! Feel free to stop by and say howdy anytime y'all!
Have a Happy Halloween!
