Snowman and Reindeer Pops

My kids love Oreos so I am always trying to find ways to make them cute and fun for my kiddos.  Last Christmas we made  Oreo Pops and then these mummies at Halloween so I thought for Christmas we would try these.  They were a total success!!  My kids thought they were awesome and could hardly wait for them to set so they could eat them (and so I could take a picture :).  Hope you enjoy and these would be super fun to give to neighbors, friends, or teachers.

Double Stuffed Oreos
Sucker sticks
Brown Dipping Chocolate (I use Wiltons)
Pretzels, broken in pieces
M&Ms, red
White chocolate chips, with the pointy end cut off
Black edible pen

1.  Carefully open up your Oreos and place on wax paper.  Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl until smooth, a few seconds at a time.  Press a sucker stick in the creme of the Oreo and spread a small amount of chocolate on creme, over the stick, and place the top back on.  Let sit until set--about 20 minutes.  If you would like a demonstration check out the Mummy Oreo post for pictures and more detailed instructions.

2.  Using the same chocolate you have melted (adding more if necessary) dip Oreos, covering completely.  Set back on wax paper.  Immediately add pretzel pieces for antlers, m&m for nose, and white chocolate for eyes.  Let set.  When dry, using your black edible pen, color tops of white chocolate chips to look like eyeballs.  Tie with a cute ribbon and eat (or a giveaway!)

Royal frosting, black and orange

1.  Repeat the same process as above for putting the sucker stick in the Oreos.  When they have set, dip the Oreo completely in the white chocolate, shaking off excess and place on wax paper.  Let set--about 20 minutes.  Using a toothpick, dip it into the frosting and make eyes, nose, and mouth.  Tip:  this is a great tutorial on royal frosting.  Let set, tie with a cute ribbon and eat!
