Oreo Cookie Lollipops

Graham wanted to bring his little crush L a present to Preschool Graduation Friday night. Heaven help me, the boy is thinking about gifts for girls already. He doesn't get this from example, his dad is not a gift giver. But Graham wanted to bring her a doll. I don't think so. I was pleased to help him give her a little something, but spending money on a five year old girl from school without concrete assurance she will go with him to the senior prom? Um, no.

So we came up with these, too bad I got instructions on HOW to do them after I started, but it turned out to be pretty easy and they looked CUTE if I say so myself!

First you will need Double Stuff Oreos, white chocolate chips, lollipop sticks, cellophane treat bags, sprinkles, tags and ribbons (if gifting them.) I bought everything in one quick trip to Wal-Mart.
HINT! I did this backwards!! Melt your chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds till completely melted. Dab a tip of your lollipop stick into the chocolate before sticking it into the Oreo ever so slowly and gently! The chocolate on the tip acts as a glue to keep the cookie on the stick!
Re-heat your chocolate if necessary for a few seconds. Dip cookie thoroughly in chocolate coating both sides. I used a spoon to help pour extra where the stick meets the cookie. Place to harden on wax or parchment lined cookie sheet. I would do 3-4 cookies, then sprinkle!
To make sure everyone knows I'm a novice baker, here are a few of my rejects before my happy helpers Graham and Greg ate them in the name of "taste testing." Quality assurance working at its best!
Letting the chocolate harden and cool. Took about 30 minutes till I felt I was safe to wrap them.

Ta-DAA!!! I didn't get a shot of the ones we gave L. I had a larger treat bag, stacked 4 (2 sets of 2 side by side) and wrapped multiple ribbons with a tag. They really turned out darling, Graham was thrilled to have something fun to give to her and I curbed the "gifts for girls" thing!

These are so cute. I bet the little girl was so happy to be getting a special present from such a handsome boy. Fun Fun Fun

I've heard that a lady should not accept anything but flowers or candy from a man to whom she is not related, but I'm not sure whether a doll fits within that rule.

I tried to get you the instructions earlier! Is it my fault you are super organized and speedy?
I am glad they worked out! What a lucky girl to have such affection shown to her.

What a cute idea! I'm not sure I could make it through without eating them all. I love Oreo cookies.
