Over the holidays my Oreo Balls
were very popular. (Both on the blog and at home!) Last week I made another batch for my husband, and I bought an extra package of Oreos so that I could experiment with some other recipes.
Over the weekend I made these Valentine lollipops. Aren't they cute! And you won't believe just how easy they were! I have to admit, they aren't quite as good as the Oreo Balls. (But then again, what is?) However, I expect you'll like them just the same!
Make these in minutes with the kids for an after-school Valentine's treat, serve for your kid's Valentine parties, or even hand out to coworkers and friends. (Candy-Gram anyone?)
Recipe for Cookies & Cream Lollipops:
8 blocks Almond Bark
8-12 Oreo Cookies, crushed
Directions: Crush cookies. Place crumbs in candy molds, completely covering the bottom of the mold. Put your lollipop sticks in place. Melt chocolate in microwave, in 15-20 increments, stirring in between to prevent scorching. Pour chocolate into molds, one lollipop at a time and then cover the lollipops with remaining cookie crumbs. Lollipops should harden in a few minutes. Refrigerate for faster hardening. Remove from molds when ready to serve. Makes about a dozen lollipops
Hint: If you don't have any lollipops, use other candy molds or a even mini muffin tin.
