These Green Candy Dipped Oreo pops are perfect as birthday treats on a dessert table, party favors dressed in little cellophane bags, and St. Patrick’s Day treats.


To make these, start by melting a small amount of your candy melts. About 1 oz, or 7-8 large chips.

You are going to use this small amount of melted candy to “glue” the sticks to your cookies.

*Before putting the stick in the Oreo, I would like to point out that it’s not as straight forward as it looks. I tried various techniques and the cookies ended up breaking.

I tried opening the cookies and putting the candy and stick in there to seal the stick inside, and it didn’t work out well for me.

Instead I found that leaving the cookies together and dipping the stick into the melted candy and then slowly twisting it into the cookie cream worked best.

Once that was done with each cookie, I then went back and “painted” more melted candy to the bottom of each cookie to make it nice and strong.

This helped the cookies stay together better.  

Once those are completely dry (about 10 minutes) melt a larger batch of your candy melts.

Make sure to set up a drying area for your cookies before you get started. Once your candy melts you only have a limited time before it starts hardening again.

I used a pot covered in tin foil with small holes poked into the foil. But you can use a cooling rack or upside down colander if the holes are big enough for your sticks.

Next can cover your cookie with the candy. I found it best to spoon the melted candy onto the Oreos instead of dipping them.

Slowly rotate your cookie to completely cover it with the melted candy.

If you are going to be adding sprinkles, now’s the time you can add them.

We added green sugar sprinkles to our white candy cookies and star sprinkles to half of our green covered candy cookies.

For the other half of our green Oreo pops, we allowed the green base candy to dry completely. Then we melted a small amount of white and green candy melts together to form different shades of green.

Then we drizzled the colors over the Oreo pops with a spoon quickly to make lines.

The fun part about these little treats is that you can get as creative or as simple as you want.

Plus they are surprisingly delicious. I made these for the kids, and thought they’d be too sweet. But I found myself enjoying these too!


These don’t have to be made with Oreos, any cookies with cream in the middle would work. The candy melts are gluten free. If you have someone with a gluten allergy, you could use a gluten free brand of cookies and make these with those!

I've been making dipped Oreo pops for years. Here's what I've learned: Open the cookie and use the cookie stick to scrape/drag about a half inch of frosting out of the cookie. Then use a dab of melted can'dy melts on the end of the cookie stick and place it into the trough that you created and sandwich the 2 halves of the cookie back together. Don't worry if you crack/break the cookie. You can use a tiny bit if can't melt to repair them. I promise it doesn't show when you dip the cookie later. Also, use Paramount crystals to thin out the candy melts. You will use much less candy this way. I use a 2 cup silicone measuring cup and a microwave oven to melt the candy melts. I find this to be a superior method. Finally, let the melted candy melts sit for a few minutes once melted before you dip the Oreos. You will get a much smoother result. You have a much longer working time with candy melts then you would imagine. If you are in doubt you can always place the silicone measuring cup on top of a heating pad. I have been able to work with candy melts for well over an hour this way. As a side note I would add that the Oreo cookie molds use much more candy melt per pop then if you dip them by hand.
